"Is That Boy Smoking?" by Linda McCoy

During a visit to the Taft Museum in Cincinnati earlier this year, two very special young men were aghast at the "The Cobblers Apprentice" by Frank Duveneck. They couldn't imagine why this boy was smoking.
"Is that boy smoking?"
"Yes, but he's not supposed to smoke"
"Why is his mother letting him smoke?"
Try as we could to explain that this was painted a long time ago before people understood that smoking wasn't good for you, it didn't matter, they were still perplexed. I was fortunate to capture that moment.

Price: $65 USD

Bev, a lovely lady who takes oil classes from me on Monday brought these beautiful sunflowers to class. So, all day long we painted merrily away; painting of course the front of the flower. Everyone did a great job, and their paintings turned out beautiful. As everyone was cleaning brushes and preparing to leave, I noticed how beautiful Bev's sunflowers were, seeming to just recline on the table. The leafy backside, the part that usually doesn't get much of my attention, seemed to be beckoning me to paint it. So here they are, the gorgeous, swirling, twirling, leafy, flip side of the flower.  I decided against adding shadows that they cast on the table, deciding to instead depict them as they might look growing in the garden, soaking up the autumn sun. I loved painting these, thanks for bringing them to class Bev!

This is one of the paintings that will be hanging in my new space, opening September 5th at 6pm. If you are in the Cincinnati area, please stop by for a class schedule, and a glass of wine. New paintings will be hanging for you to view. 209 S West Street, Mason, Ohio. I'm excited about this new venture, and look forward to teaching art.

I was fortunate to find this purple canning jar made by a company in Toledo, Ohio. Never knew they came in purple, but I thought it would make a colorful painting. I just picked whatever was blooming in the yard. Seems like it was a shorter than usual summer but then, I probably say that every year :)

I saw these ducks this spring at Voice of America Park. It was a warm morning, not a cloud in the sky. The mama duck allowed me to approach, but she kept her eye on me. I was able to take enough pictures to paint them, the little ones were frolicking in the water, just having fun as babes do.

About This Painting:
watercolor on arches
Media: watercolor
Size: 12 in X 15 in (30.5 cm X 38.1 cm)
 
I just returned from a Watercolor Workshop with Janet Rogers. I’ve been painting primarily in oils for the last seven years since joining the Daily Painters Gallery, and felt my watercolor skills needed a refresher. I came away from this class wanting more of Janet! She is a wonderful instructor, patient, frank, and gave her all so that each artist was given attention.

This class was flowers and people. I enjoyed the flower portion, it helped me loosen up, and prepare for the people portion of the class.  The gift of this class is Janet’s use of color in the flesh tones. She combines colors in a wash that seem to glow on the paper. This was a huge take a way for me since there are not many watercolor paintings I see that I am in love with the flesh colors. Janet takes them to a new level, and walks the artists through her color mixing wizardry!

I took the class at Dillman’s in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin, but Janet teaches workshops all over the United States. Our stay in the north woods is always so peaceful!

I always think the hardest part of portrait or people painting is not just the correct likeness, color and value but connecting with the sitter in a way that you are able to capture the spirit of person.

So this is one of the pieces near completion but not quite finished of Luke. A very special little man, Luke has a wonderful personality and spirit; he is curious, inquisitive, loves trucks, (especially garbage trucks) and has the most wonderful, easy laugh.  A little more work on the hair, eye color (hazel) and I think I will call him finished.

This rabbit was just sitting on the front lawn, it was still for just a moment before it bolted off. Every year a mama rabbit makes a nest under our shed. Of course right above the shed perches a hawk who just sits and watches.....hope this little one makes it! I tried to stay true to its incredibly beautiful markings, which honestly I never really noticed before about rabbits. Thousands of watercolor brush strokes. Ok, maybe hundreds :)

I was at Art Off Symmes, in Hamilton, Ohio last night teaching a painting class to a great group of students. This was a beginners class, and some had no previous painting experience. This was an acrylic class. They learned to paint the flowers but also the glass, and some even painted water drops They did a great job! Many thanks to Sherry Armstead!

I walked out into the yard after a spring rain, and the sun was just peeking out of the clouds. The Knock Out Roses were in full bloom, and the sunlight sparkling on the raindrops stopped me in my tracks. No words or oil paint could possibly capture the beauty of that rose that moment, but as Yoda would say  "Do or do not... there is no try."
Thanks once again to my brother Larry for the title :) and to Jack for reminding me about the Yoda quote :)

One of my favorite places in Cincinnati. We went there on a Sunday in mid-May of this year and it was still pretty cool. This market is the oldest Market in Cincinnati, and it is the perfect place. Street vendors, entertainers, everything and everybody. Inside you can get foods an flavors from all over the world. The colorful awnings, and window boxes full of flowers make it even more colorful. Love it there!

Seems like spring blooms all at once. Peony, Iris, Knock Out Roses, Clematis make the yard look wonderful for a few days. Like the little Iris that toppled over, all that color doesn't last long. Happily the Knock Out Roses will bloom until the first frost. Thanks to Larry for a fitting name for this painting.

Daffodils

”I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.”

By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The only flowers my garden center had  week or so ago was Pansies. We planted some in the planter out in front, and they are really pretty. They actually lasted throughout the painting process, a little surprising since their petals are so delicate. I tried to convey the delicacy and the fragile appearance of these colorful little flowers.
Here are a few photographs on how I did this one....
I started with a turpentine wash of permanent rose, then wiped most of it off with a soft rag.
I sketched it with a thinned down permanent rose, just to get the shapes on
This is the first pass of color on each flower
Working on the glass, you can still see the pink under painting. More detail to the flowers.

I refined the flowers, added highlights to the glass, and darkened the background

For fifteen years I traveled the Midwest, mostly by car to Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee.  I spent hours each week on the road, sometimes miles and miles between destinations. I, like many other working mothers spent a lot of time feeling guilty about working and being away. I decided to stop doing that, and instead draw on the inspiration of the beautiful scenery that surrounded me during those road trips. I am creating large landscapes based on the memory of theses places and the photographs I took, many times from the car window. This painting is a place in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Maybe someplace between Escanaba and Marquette. It is an absolutely gorgeous part of the United States. I loved traveling there, the swampy areas after a rain were beautiful.  This is a small study of the larger landscape to come.
Thanks to my brother Larry for coming up with the name, it will be up to you to figure it out!
