Swim Boys


Here's the second in a series for my son's wonderful swim instructor, Nora Martin. What a challenge! Seven little bodies are very time-consuming to paint. I have to thank Nora for pushing me out of my comfort zone. I kind of felt like I could only paint portraits and it's liberating to learn that it's possible for me to paint all kinds of things.

Nora's Yard


This is my son's wonderful swim instructor's yard. I was a little worried about taking this on since I haven't done anything like this before, but I'm really glad I did. Trees have a lot of character and I love the shadows branches make.
