acrylic and oil on canvas
60" x 48"
Artist, Charlotte Seifert, was my first art instructor at SMU's continuing ed program at the Meadows School of the Arts. When my daughter Stephanie was in high school and building her port folio to apply to Parson's School of Design, we took a life drawing class from her. Charlotte and I have since become good friends and she is a great encourager and inspiration to me as an artist. She is represented by Norwood Flynn Gallery here in Dallas and her next show is October 17 - November 7.

I hope to see you next week at the Tseelana Market where my art will be available for purchase benefiting the Wilson Foundation. See my blog for details and click here for pricing.

acrylic and oil on canvas
48" x 60"
I named this painting "Mary" after my SMU art instructor, Mary Vernon. The past year I have had the privilege of her teaching and pulling (or shall I say "pushing!") me out of my comfort zone. The Genesis, Aboriginal and Organic Abstract Series were all created as a result of her valuable instruction. This Friday, August 28, 2009 is the opening of her solo show at Valley House.

"Mary" is part of the Organic Abstract Series which will be presented October 8th and 9th at TRU Salon, 2715 Fairmount, Dallas, TX and available for purchase benefiting the Wilson Foundation. The Wilson Foundation benefits orphans of AIDS victims in South Africa.
