I have very exciting news! I have artwork hanging at The O Gallery (located in the Arcade) in downtown Nashville. This is a stop on the First Saturday Art Crawl in downtown Nashville. I am really excited about this and will post a picture of my work hanging up this weekend. For more information on the Art Crawl head over to www.nashvilledowntown.com My work will be up for the month of June but if you can make it out to the crawl it will be a fun evening. I hope to see you there! Also check out the The O Gallery on Facebook. Thanks so much!

Hello! I just recently moved from Alabama to Tennessee. I'm getting settled in here and enjoying it. Nashville isn't too far from where I am and I get to go out there pretty regularly. They have a really great art scene. I managed to finish a commissioned piece before moving. I haven't painted flowers in a really long time. I found it challenging and I also managed to paint without utilizing any black paint. I really like how mixing without black turned out on the daffodils.
I also recently finished a large piece, "Portage Glacer Spring" it's 36"x36" in acrylic. I really enjoyed working on this piece utilizing glazing and washes. The water was pretty challenging and I'm really happy with the mountains and clouds.
I also started a new website for my paintings where you can also get prints on demand. You can visit it at: www.maconststudio.com
I'm looking forward to entering more art shows this year and will update here with more information. Now I need to get back to painting!
