Standing Out From The Crowd

"Standing Out From The Crowd"
Oil on Linen
36" X 36"

I finished this painting yesterday and delivered to the Indiana State Fairgrounds and with any luck it will be on display for the Indiana State Fair Fine Art Show from August 8-19.

All my paintings have special meanings for me in some way or another, but this one is even more so. When setting up the composition for this, I really wanted the red, white and blue marble to be the focal point. You see, my wonderful husband retired from the Indiana National Guard earlier this year with 24 years of service to our country. Our family is very proud of him and this great accomplishment and of his selfless service. I painted this painting to honor him in my own small way. So congratulations to Sergeant First Class Benjamin Boyles!

I would also like to give a big thank you and Shout Out to Davis Marbles and their family. All these magnificent marbles came from them and are the start of my collection. The craftsmanship, beauty and attention to details really makes these marbles unique! The service and professionalism is fantastic too! Thank you Davis Family!

Another Preview

Here's a preview of my newest marble painting. The title will be "Standing Out In Front of the Crowd" and it is 36" X 36" on linen. There's a lot more to come on this one, but I just wanted to share what I've done so far, it will keep me motivated to finish it quickly. These marbles are so beautiful, I hope I can do them justice! Stay tuned for the finish!

I just had to add one more painting to the exhibit! I have several framed prints but wanted another original painting or two. I hung this one at the last minute. It has one of my unique frames that I will show a picture of once I get one. This is titled "Plop" for obvious reasons!
It measures approximately 13" X 17" and is oil on linen.

Thanks to everyone who showed up for my reception Friday night. It was a great turnout and wonderful to see all of you!
