One day a few months ago I decided to go out and paint just down from my neighborhood where they had torn out a bunch of houses to make way for the new college. I was painting merrily along when what to my wondering eyes should apear but about 25 black men on horseback! Glad I had my trusty ol' camera. I snapped a pic or two and continued to paint. Yesterday I found the painting and the photograph and decided it was time to jazz up the painting w a couple of riders so here is the finished product. It was just what it needed. You can buy it here for $300 or check out ebay and bid on it in the auction. midwest-fine-art.com is my ebay store.

Today was one of my weekly portrait groups. This lovely young girl modeled for us. All of these little paintings look better in real life than my lousy camera's photos of them. click here for my ebay store. midwest-fine-art.com
