Ballet Leap

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 9x12

This small study features my grand daughter, Callie Tuchel, in silhouette at one of her performances. The lighting and positions of the figures created an unusual dynamic that I wanted to capture. This painting was inspired by a photo taken by Annie Jones. SOLD! Prints are available.

Rainy Afternoon Milwaukee

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 16x20

The great thing about a rainy day is that you don't feel guilty about staying indoors. Listening to a storm roll through has always had a soothing effect on me and I love to paint while the rain beats on the roof and thunder rattles the windows. This one is for those that enjoy a rainy day! See more rain images; rainy night prints
