Skateboard Park

I went to an art demo by Rogers Naylor yesterday and I thought I would complete a painting using his technique before I forgot what it was all about. I cheated a little here and there but managed to finish this one of a skateboarder at the Greenbelt Skate Park. Rogers has an ongoing art show right now at Susan Calloway gallery in Georgetown. People should check it out!

The Parade

This painting commemorates the only time I ever saw a parade go down the main street in Accokeek. At the time it was pretty exciting! I think the inspiration for a painting featuring flags comes from this Childe Hassam painting:

Naturally, the Accokeek version is a little scaled down.

I'm sure I would have done some great paintings during the mega snow storms if I had had some canvases of the right size. Instead I worked on a snowman.
