Idea to Image: Fancy Meeting You Here

Fancy Meeting You Here, acrylic, 24" x 36" x 1.5"

Fresh from my studio!  I'm having fun with color and texture, creating these plants through a combination of observation & imagination.  This painting is currently on loan for the new faculty exhibition at Our Lady of the Lake University.

Below are images of the painting's progress, from sketch to completion.  Inspired by the many moves throughout my college years and finally putting down some roots here in SATX.  Studies from my sketchbook for the weathervane were put on tracing paper and transferred to the canvas using carbon paper.  The plants were sketched directly on the canvas & painted.
