Here is a painting I began as a demonstration piece during Upstairs Studio's January First Friday opening. I enjoy doing public demonstrations because little kids come along and ask very good questions. That way the adults in the vicinity have a chance to learn something!

A note to subscribers: You may receive some old posts again. I am changing the photos on some recent posts, now that I am taking better photos with my new camera. When I change the photos, the whole post may be sent out again. I apologize for the re-send, if that happens. At least you will get to see the better images.
