Batter Up!

16"x20" - Oil
Here's my niece Maggie playing Tee-Ball. I caught a photo of her about to swing the bat. I painted this as an independent project for my Painting I class at the College of Charleston.

45 Church St

11"x14" - Oil

I thought I'd paint a few things for the Gallery - This time of year there are lots of tourists walking through who want a little "Grab and Go" piece of Charleston.

Self Portrait in Oil

16"x20" - Oil
This has been a real challenge. We worked on this only in class over 4 weeks, using a mirror on one easel while we painted on another. By the fourth class, I only worked on this for a short while, then went on to something else. I think it's finished now, but I may still do a little "tweaking". I like it - took a few years off my face, but I also look serious. My attempts to soften my face were only mildly successful. Feel free to comment.
