I believe that art enriches and informs our lives everyday in many positive ways. Sharing those experiences, whether as an artist or as an appreciator, is part of the pleasure. I welcome your comments and hope you find something of value: a laugh, an insight, a new idea or just a happy moment. Enjoy art!

Empty Nesters

18" x 24"  mixed media

I probably don't need to say much about this piece, the title pretty much explains it all.
The original photo from which this was done was taken by Lynne Townsend
of Todd, N.C.  Lynne does beautiful photography and when I saw this
shot I asked if I could paint it.  She graciously said yes.
Maybe as an empty nester myself I read way too much into this scene but I thoroughly enjoyed
working on my interpretation of it.
"Empty Nesters" is a mixed media piece done in graphite and acrylic washes on a gessoed
wooden board and then framed with a black wooden floater.

Ready to hang!
