art project for W.E.C.C.

West End Community Church (WECC) recently celebrated its 10yr anniversary. To celebrate this mile stone, following the Sunday worship, there was a picnic lunch with games and a painting project to be donated to Bass Middle School. I had the priveledege of orchastrating the painting project! A large piece of canvas was primed for creative energy and color from WECC children present the day of the celebration. Palletes of paint and brushes were set around the canvas, and children were encouraged to mix colors and paint portions of the canvas. The end result was a wonderful wash of layered colors and textured brush strokes. Upon allowing the canvas to dry, I added a thin black line to provide structure to the canvas. The end result was a sucess!

today's painting...

after my last posting, the painting "lady in the street" SOLD! so I am trying to paint faster than ever so that I have enough inventory for my approaching show in Birmingham in 3weeks!! it is a good thing that I can paint under pressure, because I sure feel the pressure as the sun sets on another day in the studio.
