About The Artist

Hello! I am a fine arts painter, with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My primary painting medium is oil and alkyd, and mostly I work in a representational style. My greatest challenge as a painter is to capture the effect of light; and my greatest joy as a painter is to accomplish that. Many thanks to those readers who have been following this blog since Day 1 (May 19, 2008). To those who are visiting for the first time today...Welcome, and thanks for dropping by!

July Flag: Done!

"July Flag" 2008

Last Friday (July 4th), I posted this painting as "in progress." Here is the final version.

If you compare the two, you'll see that there's more sunlight in the foreground in the sidewalk and lawn area; and, in general, the flag colors are more vibrant. There are several other "tweaks" throughout the painting, too—all intended to focus attention on the flag. Do you think it works?

Thanks for taking a moment to read this post and see today's painting.

Keep cool this weekend. See you Monday!

Wow! It really pops! Yep, I would say you accomplished your mission-congrats.

I completed my papier mache mermaid at Spiva today...she's wearing lime green pants and an orangy top...Arlie found some yellow funky yarn that I used for her hair-she has dreads!

Fun times at Spiva-remember?
