Theater, Crown Center Evening

In the summer, I took photos of children playing in the fountains at Crown Center. I was interested in the colors that the lighting gave to the figures. It made for great theater and the children obviously agreed.

Fall, St. Joseph's River

Recently I have finished a small painting from a visit in October to Niles, Michigan. The river was beautiful in late day and on returning to Kansas City, decided to do a small painting from a photo; It is really an oil sketch, done very quickly. Ned Mueller told me to paint faster than I would like and set a deadline-that way I would not be caught in detail. Thanks Ned!
