Paintings I did during my painting class last spring–my first attempt at realism in oils was during that school year. I fell in love.
Trail crew members working to clear Rendezvous Creek in Cooper Landing, Alaska. Oil on canvas.
Above was my midterm; below is my the painting I did for my final.
My older sister’s wedding from Fall 2011 provided the information and sources for this painting. Oil on canvas.
Another shot at realism is pictured below (why is detail so satisfying?) done the following summer for the July 2012 art show.
My older sister and I always wished we had more younger siblings, so we go hiking with the neighbor girls as often as they please. Oil on canvas.
