I have more good news. The Southside Art League of Indianapolis sponsors the Midwest National Abstract Show. It is going on right now and I was extremely lucky to have two paintings accepted. Both of these paintings were inspired by the beautiful seasons we experience in Indiana. Spring

was inspired by the tulips, daffodils, apple blossoms and brilliant greens of the Indiana landscape. Indiana Autumn 3

was inspired by the golden glow of the tulip trees and the firy red and orange of the maple trees that fill our Indiana forests.  I feel very grateful to have been accepted. As you may remember, earlier this year I was really struggling with my painting and particularly with my Indiana Autumn series.

  2. Thank you Leslie. Spring just flowed out but Autumn was a STRUGGLE!

    These are both lovely! Congratulations!

  4. aloha Linda. luck had nothing to do with these getting into that show. these deserve to be shown. beautifully rich in color, well composed and one of our favorites—vibrant in color juxtaposition. no one would guess you had any struggle with either of these at all because you pulled them off so well. very cool. aloha.

    Autumn might have been a struggle — there’s no sign of it in the finished work — just a sense of something moving with a kind of electric fierceness of concentration. Fine work.

    Purdue math major, eh? Topology, I bet.

    I love your painting but how did you get the white lines and circles? I wanted to teach my students how to do it.
