"Ilknur Koseler Bakis" by Peni Baker

Art by Peni Baker proudly presents "Ilknur Koseler Bakis".
This is a 10" x 10" acrylic gallery wrapped canvas.
Ilknur is a women that I found on facebook under "Artist"
She does such enchanting pieces of art herself that I decided
I wanted to have her as a friend on facebook just so I could keep up with her
wonderful artwork.
After receiving her acceptance, I saw that she had a really pleasant and inviting face.
A face that should be painted.
So here she is.

Ilknur is from the beautiful city of Izmir, Turkey.
I am now facebook friends with her best friend, her sister, another very good friend,
and a fellow artist who paints with her.
Thank You

"The Big Yacht" by Peni Baker

Art by Peni Baker proudly presents "The Big Yacht"
from my Vero Beach, Florida Yacht Club series.
I loved painting this yacht.
I am currently looking for another boat photo opportunity in the Indian River Area to add to my Vero Beach Yacht Club series.
If you have any great photo shots, send it my way and I might choose it to paint. I'm sort of looking for the Australian pine background with the mangrove trees toward the front and of course a beautiful boat sitting in the foreground. If I choose your photo and have your permission to use it, I will provide you with a nice 8" x 10" electronic copy.
More of my art work can be seen at my blog ""

Enjoy and send me those photos.

"Dedicated to Hailey and Brandi"

I have been paying particular attention to the fact that I have not blogged as frequently since my daughter and her two little girls have become residents in my home.
Since my two granddaughters warm and loving hearts have consumed a great deal of my time and emotions lately I thought that it would be very appropriate to dedicate this blog to them.
