New Gallery Paintings

These three little dancing palm paintings are painted on four-by-four inch gallery wrapped canvas. They can either be hung on a wall or set on a shelf or table, alone or in a grouping. My inpiration was the beautiful cocoanut palms along the beach at Lowdermilk Park. It is fascinating to watch the trees' fronds sway back and forth in the breeze.My medium is the new interactive acrylic paint.

Suspicious people sometimes wander on to college campuses. I suppose that explains why the security guard approached me as I was painting in a section of the main quadrangle and wanted to know who I was and if I had permission to be on campus. My former classmate and I had entered the front door of Main Building and asked someone in the first office if we could set up and paint on campus. We were welcomed. Wrong authority. We had to proceed to the proper person to explain our presence, thereby wasting good morning light time. Next time we will know which office to enter. At least this little painting was completed after the interruption.

Today I learned that Agnes Scott College, my alma mater, will be hanging my painting of Rebekah Colonnade in the newly renovated Alumnae House on campus.
