I painted this on location at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. When I got there I was a little disappointed because the day was overcast, but I started painting anyway. It was absolutely wonderful when the sun broke through the clouds right as I was finishing up, and I was able to add in the effect of the light on the falling water.
Waterfall at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. 14×11, acrylic on gessoboard. This piece is currently for sale. Prints are available at Fine Art America.
I painted this for the owner of Blue Sky Yoga Studio in Libertyville, Illinois. She sat in this pose for an amazing four hours, with barely any breaks. We chose this pose because it was her favorite, but once completed my favorite thing about the piece is how it reimagines this common image from art history with a female subject. Prints of this piece are available at Fine Art America.
This piece is 30×24 in, acrylic on canvas.
New paintings! After a very successful opening reception at the Jack Benny Center in Waukegan, Illinois last night, I’ve uploaded images of some of the paintings shown there that haven’t previously been on this website. We were so honored that so many people came and looked and showed their support, and were particularly thrilled with the number of kids that came. A few of these pieces have sold, but many are still available and can be seen anytime the Benny Center is open through the end of September. Please see my Fine Art America Website for a complete list of availability and pricing, as well as for prints of any of these pieces.
To visit the work in person, please stop by 39 Jack Benny Drive, Waukegan, Il, Monday-Thursday from 10am-9pm, Friday from 9am-5pm, or Saturday from 9am-4pm.
