It’s been quite a while since I last published a blog post, which I imagine makes my website look outdated. I felt a little bad about that until I remembered that I have 3 kids and work full-time. Nevertheless, I’ve been creating many new works over the past months, including an oil portrait of my daughter, a wild horse meditating along the shore at Assateague Island (will share soon) and several new paintings that are for sale over at The Office Art Guy.
Here I thought I’d share a couple of other paintings, one from several years ago and another that I just finished yesterday.
This is a painting that I did 6 years ago of kids playing in the splash pad at the plaza in downtown One Loudoun. The boy in the yellow shirt on the right-hand side is my oldest son, back when he was 1 1/2 years old! I left a free print of it on a table there yesterday, for someone to find and take home. I sometimes place art prints out in public like this, just to add a bit of the unexpected to someone’s day!
The watercolor painting below is of the Waterford Post Office on a sunny afternoon in the late summer. The village of Waterford sits in western Loudoun County and is a National Historic Landmark District, noted for its well-preserved 18th and 19th-century character. It’s very picturesque. In fact, once when we were driving through there on a crisp fall morning, we saw a man walking his dog, sipping his coffee, and wearing a warm black and red checkered shirt, looking like he had just walked out of an LL Bean catalogue photo shoot!
