This little church is in Tunnel Hill, GA. There are buildings around the church but I chose to leave them out of the painting. The church has been there for probably 100 years or more.

Casa de Bandini - progressing

I'm still working on this painting for the Creative Arts Guild's "Celebracion" Hispanic/Latino gallery show. I must deliver it no later than Sunday, April 27th. That's painted, dry, framed and ready to hang in about 8 days. I'm using a drying medium to speed the process. I know I'm cutting it awfully close, but I've been away from the easel for awhile - won't bore you with the details. There's still lots to do here. It's far from being ready.

South from Fort Keys

10"x8" oil on canvas covered hardboard painted en plein air, alla prima - $85 including shipping -
As we were painting at the Tunnel Hill battlefield on March 22nd, I saw this lovely patch of purple at the meadow's edge. As I painted, the dark colors under the trees on the left kept changing. Even though my initial intent was to feature the purple flowers, I loved working on the darks as well.
Contact me for purchase.

This small building is directly across the street from the Heritage Center. The pear trees are in full bloom and are amazing in all their colors of white.
