"Tuscan Garden" My latest painting. An acrylic 14x11".
I did it so I can put it onto a flyer promoting that I'm now doing house and garden commissioned portraits.
My son & 'ex' liked it, and since they are non-art people, I consider that a HUGE compliment! :)
It looks great in the flyer, so hope that it works, I am dying to do some of the wonderful plantation-type houses in this area (Atlanta, Georgia).
Love this classical garden, with fabulous nude woman statue overlooking an ornamental fish pond, topiaries, and hydrangeas.
AVAILABLE FOR SALE: on my Bluethumb link on my website.

Gee! I keep thinking I get NOTHING done.
Forgot to mention I did an illustration that is on the cover of a kid's magazine this month!
Kids Holiday Crafts Magazine. 'Fall' in Love with Autumn. Park Scene from Roswell, Georgia. Gelati ice cream stand, and family with a dog.
This one finished Wednesday night, after about 25 hours work.
Took it in today (took the photo on the passenger side of the car) to Atlanta Artist's Center to be juried. Tagged for donation to Grady Hospital.
Not only was it accepted, but won an award of recognition.
It will be part of a re-decoration program with a big social event mid-January.
I can submit 3 more pieces to sell at that time if I want, and will mingle with 600 guests who will be who's who, of Atlanta.
Well, this was just a small one I did about a week ago. "SUNKIST"
6x6" - took me about 6 hours.
That's about an hour an inch!
Acrylics on canvas. Sides painted - continued on sides.
