Painting Demonstration

For those of you in the Charlotte, NC, area, I will be painting a landscape at A.C. Moore today from 1:00 to 3:00. The store is on Matthews Township close to Independence. Stop by and say hello! I'll be teaching Landscape Painting in Oils at the store starting next month.

Antiques on Magazine Street

8x10, oil on canvas panel
To Bid: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190309174038


While in New Orleans I was graciously given permission to take photos in two gorgeous antique stores. I cannot remember which store this image belongs to, but the stores are Balzac Antiques and Petricia Thompson Antiques, both on Magazine Street. The light was perfect, quiet and non-insistant, but nevertheless beautiful. There was something stunning to see everywhere. I'll be painting more of these in coming weeks.

Trying Ebay Once Again

I have relisted 4 paintings on ebay--once again testing the ebay waters. All are listed at $48. Copying and pasting the site addresses did not work for me this time. You can go to ebay and put connie snipes in the search box and a page with all my painting will magically appear. I'll be listing one each week day night this month. Connie

Lynn's Garden

8x10, oil on canvas panel

I have long admired this yard while passing by on my daily walk. I met the owner, and she graciously let me paint there. I spend a delightful couple of hours in her garden yesterday afternoon.

Empty Easel

I have been out of town (class reunion) and then had company, so the easel is empty. I have so missed my daily painting and will definitely post a new painting tomorrow. Please check back. Connie
