Painting of a "Traveller" that we ran into while in Ireland. He was singing for his supper while his little friends patiently sat in their odd little cart/table. Quite a character!
I was trying to do something a little out of the ordinary for me, think a little out of the box. This is me painting out of the box…(baby steps:)

This is a painting of a little boy who was in a crowd watching some street performers. I was really taken by his expression and chose to paint him at a recent portraiture class. I've been trying to improve my drawing skills by taking lots of classes. I was pleased with how this came out.
This is a lovely little farmhouse in the Beaver Valley. Every time I pass it I wonder about the people that lived within its walls. abandoned farms always look so isolated… Not the best image, took it with my cell phone at the framers..

Another attempt at acrylic and at my favorite swamp. A little uncertain about this one…
