I have 4 art exhibits going this month. The first is at Wild Fork Restaurant in Utica Square where 40 of my paintings are hanging for the month of May. I am joined there by several of my students from TCC, Zieglers and one high school student who takes private lessons with me. The rest of the exhibits occur during Mayfest where I will have two paintings hanging at the Invitational Gallery, one at the May Rooms and I will have a booth at the Blue Dome Festival. I will be joined there by mosaic artist, Caryn Brown, stone carver, Richard Dreher, and jeweler/painter, Louise Higgs. Since the space is small I will be selling very affordable 6x6 paintings. There will be a series of local/regional musicians and Oklahoma skies. I will also have Tulsa Spirit posters for sale and brick orders to raise funds for the next installment of the Tulsa Art Parkway. If you haven’t seen the first installement, drive on up the street and visit it at Denver and Fairview. As always, my work can be viewed and purchased at http://midwest-fine-art.com

This isn't quite finished and the photo isn't showing the greens properly but you get the idea. This is the first coat. I am working on a little series of local/regional musicians. They are all 6x6 oils. Both of my sons are musicians... Jesse Aycock and Dylan Aycock( the Doldrums ) and my husband is also a musician and runs the local NPR radio show, Folk Salad So I have lots of inspiration. This photo is Samantha Crain You all should check out their music. It is amazing! Anyways, back to the paintings.... I am tweeking the pics w Photo Shop first and then drawing the tweeked photos onto canvas and then painting them. Every now and then I need a little break from the florals which I will be painting like crazy since it has been raining for a solid week here and we are set for more. There was a break yesterday long enough for me to go out and gather armloads of Iris, Peonies and Roses. Boy does it smell good in my house! Gotta get back to the painting. If you know someone who would like a little photo of them painted in this manner.... send them to me. I am thinking of charging $60 ea.
