Jaala

March 2010
Another painting of my niece, Jaala.  Jessica has some great pictures of her "modeling" the things she makes, and I can't help but want to paint them!  (Check out her blog Happy Together for some CUTE CUTE things- she is fabulously creative!).  I'm submitting this one for a juried show, "Small Treasures", by the Cary Gallery of Artists.  I will know in a couple of weeks if it gets accepted.

House on Chatham Street

March 2010
This is a historic house in downtown Apex.  There are 2 magnificent magnolia trees in the front yard!  The light was so clear and crisp the day I took the photo that I used.  I'm donating this to the Montessori School of Raleigh for their annual March Madness Gala and Fundraiser this Friday evening at Marbles Museum in Raleigh.  It will be auctioned.
