Blues for Etta, Watercolor by Linda McCoy

As I was painting this today I heard the sad news that Etta James had passed away. It is a sad day for her family, fans and music.

The Grape Escape, Oil painting by Linda McCoy

This painting is aptly named “The Grape Escape” by my brother who has recently taken on the task of naming my paintings. (Thanks Larry!)
These are the largest most beautiful grapes, and oh so sweet! I like these wine glasses purchased from Pier One Imports. I set the still life up in the east sun as is often my practice. I am forever amazed at how the sunshine can turn an ordinary object into a sparkling, light refracting, illuminated miracle. The painting is my attempt to recapture that moment in the sun.
