Sweets for My Sweet


20x20 oil on linen

I thought I'd give my blog viewers a sneak peek at some of the work that is now available at Russell Collection in Austin. They are mounting their Best of Texas show featuring 10 of the Texas artists they represent, including me. It should be a fun opening reception Friday night with a diverse collection of artists and live music. If you are in town you should rsvp and attend!

This painting might be my favorite. I actually have thought about this scene for a couple of years but hadn't painted it yet. Perhaps I didn't think I could. But I am so pleased with the results. The setting is actually across from Russell Collection at Sweetish Hill Bakery. They have one of my small daily paintings on their wall. Its also a scene from their bakery. Pretty neat.

Robin, the light you've captured in this painting is so luminous... on the floor, the woman's hair and chairs. Love this one!

Robin... just found you on a link from Carol Marine's blog. Your paintings are so exciting ! You have such a way of capturing your subject with small strokes and an Impressions eye, and brush ! I think the mother/daughter is my favorite, too... Memories of my own little girl and the pastry shop !
