Chain Gang

Fun bunch of flowers. They are a riot of color and form. I just wish they would have lasted another day for another painting but no such luck.

Greenville Trolley

Well, this really isn't a trolley like San Francisco. More like a bus but very cool. Downtown Greenville, SC. runs their fleet of trollies on the weekends and it is free to ride. Just another great thing about Greenville.

Summer Fruit

So many things to love about summer. Cherries are one of them. I seem to paint faster when fruit is involved. After sitting under the studio lights, the artist is obliged to eat the fruit, right?

Another Classic

This beauty is also from my visit to the local car collector. Thank you Jay and Angie Sullivan. I have to admit, this car was perfect. There was no rust or "bad" spots. However, as I was painting it, my burnt umber underpainting started peaking through. I thought it helped to age this car. What is it?
