For decades, this has been a common scene in rural America, a basketball goal attached to the side of a barn. I've heard people say, if they didn't have a basketball handy (or it got lost in high weeds) they would use anything, even a rolled up ball of twine. Once school was out, afternoon chores always turned into a round or two of hoops. This painting has been produced with the finest watercolor materials available. The piece is on heavyweight paper and will require framing for display.

Getting to Know Judy

For Judy Mudd, creating a work of art means much more than simply reproducing something she sees. “It is more than painting a subject, it is expressing a feeling,” she explains. Judy develops her paintings with thorough reconnaissance work. She goes out on photo shoots in a variety of atmospheric conditions, sketches outdoors, takes notes, and completes color and value studies. From there, back in the studio, she lets the paintbrush guide her. Outside of painting, Judy also runs a real estate business with her husband. In many ways, her work in real estate can be seen via the architectural influences in her watercolors.
