"Bounty in Charleston"____10 x 8 oil on linen....painted with a paper towel!
A few weeks ago I painted a similar image en plein air at a workshop. The image was still on my mind, so I planned to do a demo of it in Charleston while there last week. When I got to the demo location, I did not have my brushes!!!!*#!*## But, the demo must go on! I rolled up a paper towel and painted this one from memory. The title was given to me by fellow artist Adele Earnshaw, and makes reference to her favorite brand. I might have named it Viva!
I'll teach a one-day workshop Saturday in Calvert. Come if you can! Details below...

I remember the other painting and this turned out just a beautifully! AND I can't believe you did it all with a rolled up paper towel! WOW!

I just got my Southwest Art magazine today and saw your name in the Best Western Women Artists Cowgirl Up show. Congratulations!

I knew you were an incredible painter, woman, inspiration but WOW a paper towel! I saw your name in the Cowgirl Up show too - I smiled and said to myself "I know her!"

Now you have done it...raised the bar and put all those brush companies out of business! Absolutely beautiful painting!

Only YOU could manage to pull off a gorgeous painting with paper towels. Or a stick, or your fingers. No challenge seems to impede your inspiration and your ability to put it to canvas. I am in awe. I knew making you my mentor was a good choice. lol!
