Sweet Stack


oil 10x8 inches For a closer look and purchase info click here. I painted this on National Donut Day. The glazed on the bottom gradually caved in causing it to lean a bit minute by minute. Just like the leaning tower of Pisa.

Wildflowers -an oil painting from UCR Botanical Garden

Cherries & Roses


oil 10X10 inches For a closer look and purchase info click here. Just got back from a trip to Idaho, and brought a summer cold home with me. Thankfully I'm back in my studio today. I had the opportunity to paint along the Snake River, and I'll post those paintings after they get a few tweaks. Meanwhile, for this painting from June I used a cool light source which resulted in the cool reds and pinks contrasting with the warm blue of the jar. I'm really happy with how this painting came out.

Come To The Fountain -a plein air painting from The Huntington Library and Gardens


oil 9x12 inches For a closer look and purchase info click here. This piece is from my work in May. I found a cool and quiet spot in the Huntington's gardens to paint this fountain. I'm still backlogged with paintings I haven't posted yet, but on July 4th I sprained my shoulder. It's not my painting arm, but still I may be limited. I painted the next day and ended up in a lot of pain, so we'll see. I just might get caught up on my postings.
