Butterfly Garden, Impressions of Flower Garden by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

So much fun painting with kids in our butterfly garden! We did acrylic paintings, layering in impressionistic style while trying to catch the sun on the salvia. Butterflies fluttered nearby. I always use acrylics with children because water is always on hand. I had as much fun as they did. We filled our canvases and souls with color! 12 x 12" acrylic on canvas.

Fall in Central Park, oil painting of New York City park by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

What? No palm trees? A Florida friend went on a trip to Central Park and asked this Florida artist to capture her trip memory on canvas. She had a great time in New York, took a walk to see the fall trees and loved her vantage point in Central Park. Paintings preserve memories!

Walking in Sunshine, by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

A friend grew up with a large painting hanging in her family's living room. When her dad died, she wanted to have this painting for the special memories associated with it. But, unfortunately, it had been given away. That's when an artist can help! I recreated her painting on a smaller scale. What a joy to see her face when I presented the painting! May we all "walk in sunshine" now and through eternity!
