Fresh Off-The-Easel Paintings

I painted a few new paintings recently for my show in Birmingham at the Botanical Gardens Arts & Antiques show that was held last weekend.  They were fun to paint--especially my small ones.  The first two shown were inspired from a conversation I had with a friend about Caravaggio's work that is known for it's chiaro scurro effects--plays of extreme lights and darks.  Lots of shadows.  Then another Italian-themed painting was in order as some others in my Italian collection have sold recently.  I love to keep adding to that collection.  Another large piece is in the works that I will share when it is complete.
