Soulful Dancer Painting

Finished Painting. I am calling the painting "Soulful Dancer"

I see her at a blues club listening to Rita Chiarelli singing the song Slow dance. She sways to the music, deep in thought. This is another soul painting. I see myself in her. She is moody, romantic, and in the mood to dance.
I hope you enjoy. All comments are always welcome ...and truly apprciated.

"Rainy Day Dream" Painting

Rainy Day Dream Painting
I painted this for my younger brother. It reminds me of him. Hopefully he will also like the painting! For me this painting was special. My little brother and I were very close growing up. It took me a long time to come up with an idea for his painting. He will always be someone special in my life.

Summer Days Painting

Summer days


One continuous painting depicting the warmth of the end of summer.
This is three paintings in one. Each painting is 12x12. I painted birch trees because i think they are truly beautiful. This place reminds me of upstate New York, and the happy moments i spent there. I enjoyed working on Summer days, it reminds me how wonderful God is, and the beauty he has created in everything around us. I love the woods, Love birch trees, and feel that this piece is one of my best works to date.

I hope you all enjoy. Please feel free to comment. I love to hear what one thinks of my works.

"Cowboy Dreams" Painting

Spoke with my art teacher who looked at this painting and said it was good, but gave me a few pointers to improve it. I took his advice and am very glad i did! The painting now has more depth, and the cowboy looks more like a man instead of a boy. I made the hat smaller, put more detail and depth into the shirt he is wearing, added a chin, and refined the hair a little. I also added a little more detail to the grout in the shadow on the bricks.

Cowboy Dreams. While working on this painting my passion for the west came forth. I love everything about the west, from the gorgeous sunsets, to the Mountains, to the hard working men and women who work the land. This painting challenged me to put down on canvas what my minds eye saw. I struggled with the hands, and t...he face and neck even more.... The cowboy ended up with a large hat covering the face! :) All comments are welcome..... Does the cowboy feel like it came from a dream? I hope everyone enjoys this painting as much as i enjoyed working on it.
The painting is a gallery wrapped painting. 24 inches x 34 inches tall.
All comments are welcome and valued. :P

Sisters of the heart

I know I showed the paintings down below.. I thought I should show them side by side.

They will frame my great room doorway leading into my Kitchen. First painting was called Lady dreamer, the second painting is called Soul twin. It is same painting yet both are distinctly different. I painted them intentionally to be similar, yet feelings felt when looking at them are not the same. :) i hope you like them.

Soul Sisters

I could not let lady dreamer not have a twin to her painting. Being a twin myself, it just did not feel right. So this painting I am calling Soul Sister. This painting represents the twin to the first. I hope you enjoy!

Latest Painting "Lady Dreamer 2"

Lady dreamer 2

I started out painting this expecting the lady to be dancing... Sometimes though a painting takes on a life all its own. The soul behind the paint brush takes over and expresses itself onto the canvas.

With all that i am dealing with lately I feel that this painting shows myself in deep thought and prayer. It is an expression of my soul.

Progress of Twin Angels Painting.

Just adding updates as i go. This painting is one i am truly struggling with. Smiles. Nose and mouths are hard, and trying to get shading right is driving me insane. lol

Continuing on the face.. Still not getting it right but it is looking better i think. Spent 3 hours working on the face this morning! I can see it coming along... eyes are better and positioned more how they should be, nose is coming along, but needs lots of work, and face shape is more true to form. Cheeks are all wrong, and mouth needs major work. lol but.... it is taking shape!

First stage of my latest work

Ok here is what i am working on now. This is my very first portrait. I decided to paint my twin and i when we were two years old dressed as angels.

I know that it is not the best.... But it is my first time. Smiles. I have a lot of work yet to do, and hopefully by the time i am done, it will turn out nice. I started out painting me first. I tried to take a close up of my work. The painting itself has a lot of space around the twins, which i am hoping to make clouds, along with framing the twins in an oval shape. Make sense?

Please share thoughts, if any. Smiles
