Every year Nashville's foreign born residents get together to celebrate their cultures by dressing in cultural attire, providing authentic ethnic food and performing a variety of dance and music. This woman was dressed in a beautiful sari that I just had to paint. This year's festival is on October 4, 2014. Visit the website here if you are interested.
I love this guy's hat. It was a lot of fun to paint. This gentleman was dancing at a bluegrass music festival where I captured his image. He was caught up in the music and seemed to be having a grand time. We all have the need for celebration and he was definitely getting that need met.
Lately, I am intrigued by the practice of painting daily. The understanding that painting as frequently as I can will improve my painting is inspiring me to adopt this practice. So I am creating this blog to keep me motivated. Bear with me as I learn how to format my blog.

I've chosen this painting for my first post. This painting made me happy to paint. Painted loose and painterly, I can only imaging the conversation this couple might be having in choosing which way they should go.
