It's Dooley Time

What goes through a cat's mind, anyway?

Friend or foe?

This approach was inspired by a cat painting by Jamie Wyeth. Mr. Wyeth's painting is probably quite large, and features lots of green apples. Mine is 11 x 14"

Mother and Child - Mary Cassatt

January 19, the Ohio Plein Air Society invited artists to paint at the Cincinnati Art Museum. I brought an 11 x 14" panel to copy one of my favorites. Next time, I'll try Elizabeth Nourse.
I'm preparing to conduct a workshop at the Cincinnati Art Club March 1 & 2. The subject will be 'painting from photos.' Students will bring their own photos, and we'll work on composition, color, mood and creating distance. It should be a blast.
For workshop information, contact Joyce Friedeman 859-781-4881

Across the Pond

8 x 10" oil on panel.
The goldfish have plenty of hiding places this summer.
You won't see a lot of postings this summer, as I get ready for several shows that are coming up this fall. 8 x 10" panels have become my favorite painting surface for outdoor excursions. This excursion just took me to the front yard...Stay tuned!

Uncommon Ground

8 x 10" oil on panel.
This little house outside Loveland, Ohio, is part of a retreat center. The undeveloped valley vista beyond the house is becoming a rare scene in Southeast Ohio. It seems that everything is for sale in 'God's Country.'
We had a great day on Main Street yesterday. Second Sundays on Main in downtown Cincinnati has really become a big event. We had a grilled mett from the street vendor, an iced coffee from Kaldi's and sold 4 paintings. I even got a good start on a new painting.
