I always wanted to see if I could paint a pop art type painting from a photo. With all these snow days I finally had time to try it. This is a photo of my daughter, Laura and her boyfriend Zack that I used to look at. It was kind of fun. Maybe it could have used a little more black shadowed areas, I don't know. What do you think? A new business maybe? ha ha
The next painting is titled, "Sisters". I used lots of vintage sheet music on this one, and brighter colors than I usually do. I hope to list it on Ebay tonight. I think it would make a nice gift for a beloved sister. I am lucky enough to have three of them!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
