Inauguration Morn

This was taken from a photograph from the Different Strokes Blog of Karin Jurick. It is an oil painting on black gessoed watercolor paper.

I was very excited to paint it yesterday morning as I listened to the folks gathering on the mall for the inauguration. Watching all of the inauguration festivities reminds me of my time in DC as an adult and as a child. I can not visit the mall without crying somewhere, usually the Lincoln Memorial. I wish I could have taken the girls there yesterday to witness history.

The Cox

This one is oil on paper and features the coxswain on the junior varsity crew. The light was just spectacular that afternoon. Everything was coated with the most glorious golden light.

River at Sunset

I finished this painting before the holidays but did not have time to post before the holiday vacation. This is another of the regatta series which I will be working on in the coming year. This is a small 5X7 oil painting on board.
