"Michelle", 11x14" oil on gesso board

This painting of Michelle was done from life last week, and I painted it in Bill Schneider's studio in Crystal Lake.  The lighting there was different for me, so I found myself with a final product with colors that look different from most of my work.  I was intrigued by the way that the muted palette made the portrait appear kind of old fashioned, and maybe even a bit timeless.

"A Slice of Life", 10 x 8", oil on gessoboard

 "A Slice of Life"

The exhibition at the J. Petter Gallery in Saugatuck was a wonderful success.  A big shout-out to my great friend and fellow artist Barb Benstein who went along with me and supported me in every way. I so enjoyed meeting all that dropped by to say hello, and I even had a chance to paint a little still life that afternoon.  A few paintings were purchased, and a great time was had by all.

Special thanks to Juli, Karen, and all my friends at the J. Petter Gallery for making the afternoon such a success.

 Here I am, getting ready to paint, surrounded by my paintings.
I feel so fortunate to have this gallery exhibiting my work.

"Les Mandarines" found a new home.

If you'll be in the Saugatuck area in the next month, I hope you'll drop by to see the exhibit!
