tennis anyone?

6" x 6" | oil on wood  |  $90 plus s + h

What a wrap-up of the US Open. There were celebrities, drama and a whole lotta talent!

I love tennis and was inspired by the tournament to finish this painting...after starting it in July of 2009. I remember exactly when I began this piece because is was during my first painter's workshop and the first time I met Carol Marine. I had followed her work for a few years and was in awe of her acute value sensibility and her fresh palette. She was even more delightful than I had anticipated and the whole experience was a major turning point for me.

So here's to tennis champions Stosur and Djokovic and the entire Marine family who continue to inspire, engage and amaze us.
