Empty Tub, 18x24 Soft Pastel
I finished this piece in a day, and then kept coming back to it adding colors and making adjustments. It shows a certain stiffness in the pose, but I intended it as a moment of frozen reflection, sort of like when you are reluctant to get out of the bathtub even after all the water has drained out.

12x16 Soft Pastel
The latest addition to my new "Blue Series." It's funny how art happens...one minute you're painting bucolic fields, sheep and cotton and then one day you sit down and this comes out instead. It is surprising, but you have to let it flow. Art has a powerful ability to channel emotions and express them in unplanned ways.

I am branching out into the dog breeder world with pet portraits...this is a portrait of a prize-winning Boykin Spaniel, a treasured pet of one of my friends. They breed these spaniels and are located in Mountain Brook, Alabama. www.otmboykins.com
