Alice In Grass Valley, Late 1950’s

This snapshot of me with a cousin was taken in Grass Valley, California, when we were on a family vacation visiting my father’s siblings who lived there. I wish I could remember the name of this cousin. I remember this moment, holding out anĀ apple for him to take a bite.

Relations Unknown

relations_unknown
I have only a small color photo print of this large painting titled “Relations Unknown”, as the painting was lost to an unethical gallery owner who did not return it to me after a show. So many years have gone by, I thought the location of the painting would not be discovered or the painting may possibly be destroyed.

This evening I had an interesting phone call from someone who has had the painting and appreciated it in his home for many years. Who knows what round-about way it got to him, as it was not from the gallery.

“Relations Unknown” was inspired by a small snapshot I found in my mother’s black and white negatives and prints. She had placed a few old photos in a white envelope with the simple script on the front, “Unknowns”. These people were so expressive, I was inspired by their impression on me to adapt the figures, place them in Montana, and create this painting.

Spring – almost

Scary climate change making Montana too warm and dry this winter, but it is feeling like spring. Here’s a painting from my portfolio. The birds are checking out all the bird houses in my yard. This painting is a small oil on canvas. Alice Flynn

My Birthday Today and Jane Austen

I’ve spent my birthday today watching old movies, including a production of Northanger Abbey. So, I still have Jane Austen on my mind. Here is another of my watercolor ACEO portraits inspired by Jane Austen.
