Bluebell Forest (2010), 8 x 10"

A fairytale-like scene--a forest carpeted in bluebells. I was desperately searching for a photo to paint when I unexpectedly came upon this scene. It was another one of those occasions when I began painting immediately after finding the perfect photo!

Indi go Gallery and the Champaign Downtown Festival of the Arts

My show at the Indi go gallery is over now and I am pleased to report that I had three sales! Showing at the gallery was a wonderful experience and I got lots of positive comments and feedback from people who visited the gallery. I definitely feel very encouraged about continuing to pursue my painting career. Here's a picture of me from the artists reception July 8th.

Here's a picture of me painting during one of the closed events. Kelly's (one of the other artists) super awesome self-portrait is behind me.An album of photos from the show can be found here.

I am very excited to be participating in this year's Downtown Festival of the Arts in Champaign. I will have an outdoor booth all to myself! The festival is August 21 from 10am to 7pm. Come check out my booth--will hopefully have several new paintings to show!
