4 new paintings and an event

"Cooper money kiss"

I just finished this 24 x 24 canvas. I am pleased with the floral feel. The title is "Cooper money kiss" It kind of sat on my easel all week getting tiny additions of color and then Bam! I knew I wanted to add the red. Two other paintings followed suit.

"Luck in bougainvillea"

"My book starts here"
This last painting "My book starts here" was posted on Facebook a few weeks ago but I really did not feel like it was finished. I picked it up and without changing the colors much, changed the brushstrokes.


"Laughter, old blue suits & Easter gowns"

This week I also completed "Laughter, old blue suits, and Easter gowns", a 24 x 36 canvas for the Cheers to art benefit for the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, Virginia on March 21. You can see the other works in the fabulous silent auction on their Facebook page.
Of course if you are in the area...you should go.
 I probably will.

These are all so fantastic. I think my favorite is Cooper Money Kisses - and what does that mean?

Oh I live them all esp Cooper money kiss, which is funny since I don't normally like red but love it here!! Also the others are gorgeous but the one for the benefit is swoon worthy. Wish I could attend that benefit. Kerry, your art is so gorgeous. Keep it up. I need to buy something soon before you get all famous.

I love the addition of red. It seems to be a hot color this year and coming back around. Your paintings are really looking amazing-- the more you do, the better they get! You are getting so versatile with your colors! Congrats on your Benefit entry, theyre going to love it.
