Happy Easter, Happy Spring.

I didn't intend to paint a rabbit just in time for Easter, it just worked out that way. I am working on the rabbit as part of a series of ideas, I don't want to name it yet until it develops. But I would love to know what feelings you get from this painting.

First Starry Night Class

The ladies did a great job painting like Van Gogh. Lots of fun. Watch for this opportunity again at the Center for the Arts in Orange.

Strong Colors and Black

"Meeting in the Echinaceas", 30" x 24", acrylic on canvas, 2013.

My new shipment of paint arrived and I gorged myself like a child that eats his entire Easter Basket of candy all at once. I intended to paint soft Spring colors but it didn't end that way. Neon Echinaceas!

Hope to teach my version of Van Gogh's "Starry, Starry Night" at the Arts Center in Orange soon. I changed the tree to a cedar. I thought the mountains looked close to our Blue Ridge already. Call Julie Jackson at 540-672-7311 to register.
