The End of My Portrait Spree

acrylic painting, Day in the life

I went through my parent’s photo collection and painted a number of family portraits, the two below being the last ones.  I was drawn to the light in the images and the expressions.  I like that people were relaxed.  Looking through family photos allowed me to see interesting moments and a lot of moments that I did not remember or had not experienced.

I think I’m at the end of my portrait spree for now and the use of my parent’s photo collection.  I will have to see where inspiration takes me next.

Horse Training

Day in the life

I started this series of a friend training horses maybe a month or two ago.  So far I have the location and some of the preparation, the ride, and the clean up.  It was fun to follow her around and see her ride at such a high level.  The location was beautiful too.  One of the perks of Maryland is all the beautiful horse farms.   IMG_2776
