An update on my paintings and sculptures

March News and Notes

The Rivard girls, Anna, Sarah, Ellie and Julie

Welcome back! The month of March is nearly gone already! I am sorry to be so late this month but it has been a busy one. I did want to show you, though, my latest portrait of the four Rivard granddaughters of Gary and Pat Maxwell. They are pictured on the beach of the Maxwell’s home on the edge of Lake Pend Oreille in Sandpoint, Idaho. They spent many hours there while growing up. It was a fun painting to do, as well as a challenge.

Ten years ago I painted their first two grandchildren at their piano music. A interesting addition was the painting in the background depicting their mother playing the same piano. It was set against the wallpaper that was actually on the wall where it was hung.

Both were interesting and challenging paintings to do and I am grateful to the Maxwells for giving me a chance to do them.
