Dance Stella Dance

I do an ongoing painting series of small everyday scenes.

This is one of paintings from that series!
My friend took a photo of her daughter dancing on
their freshly mopped floor, posted it to FaceBook
and I knew right then and there I
just had to paint it!
The color and energy inspired me to pick up my
pallet knife to create this painting.

I also used pallet knife to create this painting of
another one of my friend's kiddos!
She had snapped this photo of her kids while 
vacationing in the Caribbean and posted to FaceBook!
Can you see a trend on where I find much of my inspiration?

And the Camera now connects to the PC!

Photos on the PC,,,,
Great thing when you want to Blog!

After a year of maneuvering this process with
little to no results, I am excited to say
I have figured this out and
I can now once again get my photos from my IPhone
to my computer!
Which means I can return to some blogging!

While away from blogging I have
taken to sharing on FaceBook.  This has been quick way
to post both my family updates and weekly art work.
I am still getting to paint at least once a week!
I thought today I would share some of my recent
pieces of portrait art!

I have been trying to paint a variety of subjects
and hope to share more with you over time!

Hope all is well!
Blessings and Happy Easter
