karen's grand bailey

16x20 oil on gallery wrap canvas
so here's my final painting..this sweet child is meandering at the beach..loved everything about her!!..i have some news:..i am now represented by the Inspire Studio and Gallery on Main St in Carmel!!  I am so excited!..i met with the owner, painter cathy bauder, on Thursday..we had a wonderful time..she's the kind of person you feel like you've known all your life!!..our styles of putting paint to canvas are totally different but that's part of the fun...i am thrilled for the opportunity!~

getting closer...

so here's more of my project...i'm liking it quite well...getting ready to head home tomorrow and i'll take another look at it then...we have had rain every day and more predicted for tonight..so good for painting but not good for golf!...I bailed gallons and gallons of lake water out of our paddleboat...finally able to take a ride around the lake this afternoon..we tried to trick the girls..told them to guard the house and went out the street-side door...scurried around to the lake..but when we returned, they were waiting for us on the porch..had been watching us the whole time...smart little stinkers!!...

on my easel...

20x16
oil on canvas
so we're at the lake..i have a few projects i wanted to get accomplished..a couple of my "grand" project paintings..but i left the house without a few VERY important colors..for blond hair and a certain color of blue eyes..(are you getting this, sally?)...anyway..i'm putting that project on hold and I have this one going..i've had this photo for a long time..in fact, the family these two comes from now has another boy and (finally) a girl...I may have to tweak this a bit and as I look at it now, I see a few things compositionally i may work on..but I love the idea of this...

on my easel...

so we've been at the lake and my computer doesn't work up there..i did watch a dvd by bryan ryder which I loved..i tried out his method here..looking at this, I see some things I need to work on..but it was fun..we are getting ready for an experimental show at the story inn over the weekend..if we do well and it's not too much work, we may do several over the summer and fall..time will tell..i hope we have some folks show up!
