Oh, Happy Day!!!, 12x12 Inches, Oil Painting



This painting is so joyful!  I feel the little boy dancing in the sand on the first day of vacation.  I love his red hair!  This painting will be included in my paintings at the Art Stable Gallery, which opens May 26 (more on that later - I really MUST start my Newsletter, there's so much going on!).

I painted him using techniques I learned in Karin Jurick's workshop last November.  So I have featured this little guy on my 'ad' for my figure workshop, which is a one-day workshop, next Monday, the 21st, at my studio.  You should come.  I do a demo, then we paint, and then I feed everyone a home made lunch. We laugh, (some of us might shed a tear), we bond, and the creativity and talent that is unleashed in absolutely amazing.  I probably talk a little about blogging, since I can't seem to help myself, but everybody takes home at least one painting they L*O*V*E.  Info is on my 'Page' at the top of the blog.  But feel free to email me for info.  kcareymac@hotmail.com

  3. I was instantly reminded of my grandson, who also has red hair (though a bit darker), both in this little guy's shape and happiness. Awesome work, Kelley!

    My vow to myself this year is that I get to do one workshop sometime between October 9th and year end (I will have one week of vacation at that point). I'll just have to see what is available in that time frame from all the bloggers out there.
