Ireland Babes

These two darling Irish siblings completely captured my heart. Glowing with such absolute beauty, joy and love... I've truly fallen in love with them. (Please forgive the glare as the paint is still wet!)I approached this oil painting, "Ireland Babes" (18 x 14 oil on panel), in an entirely new fashion. All the plein air painting I've done has made me a much better, more spontaneous and fast painter.

Little Rocker

"Little Rocker" 18" x 14" Oil on Canvas This little guy! Does he look familiar? You may recognize him from my last oil painting. Here, it's like an instant in time - - he's caught looking back at us from his surroundings. In the first painting, he was headed somewhere with a purpose... and now, interrupted in what he was doing, he will return to it after we tell him why we stopped him. Exuding...
