And now for a little exciting news: I have just finished my very first Youtube! It is titled "Impressionistic Painting Techniques with Ann Feldman". I hope that if you have a few minutes, you'll take a look. Click on Ann Feldman Youtube to visit. And please feel free to share it with other artists and friends!
Here's a little story behind this painting. A few months ago, I was playing tennis with my usual vigor and abandon. All of a sudden, the ball was coming straight at me, and I had a "deer in the headlights" moment. At the last instant, I put my hand out to block the ball and ended up breaking my finger and knuckle in several places. Naturally, it was my ring finger, so the wedding ring ended up getting sawed off in the ER. After forgetting the ring in the examining room, I was reunited with it again later that day.
To say that my tennis friend felt bad for what I went through that day is an understatement! OK, so here's where the painting comes in: she sent me these beautiful flowers to speed my recovery, so I decided to paint them. And here they are! This painting is available through the Button Petter Gallery in Saugatuck, Michigan.
