From The Garden


From The Garden  oil 10x10
Purchase info here.

Last August my friend Marj invited me to pick veggies in her garden. Her onions made a nice linear element paired with my tomatoes from my garden.  I love the little brown bits.  The painting has a fresh crisp look compared to this slightly fuzzy image.

Last June I painted this one using flowers from my front yard.  The painting has some lovely texture and subtle neutrals that don't come through in the photograph.

Toast & Honey


Toast & Honey  oil 12x12 inches
Purchase info here.

On a cool overcast morning in June, I gathered these items and painted in my backyard.  In Southern California we call this weather "June Gloom."  June gloom has its own beauty; colors seem clean and clear.  I enjoyed myself, painting and listening to the birds.  Though the natural light gave the scene almost non-existent shadows, it has a cool feel and color harmony that I'm quite pleased with.  This painting is so much better in person!

This little gem comes unframed with its own small wood easel.  A perfect little bit of color for a bookshelf or other small shelf space!  It's even better in person!

Measuring 15x15 inches, this painting is one of my comparatively larger works. In May our roses bloom like crazy.  The oranges and pinks look lovely together.  I wish you could see this in person.

It's been a minute since I have posted here on Blogger.  If you have found this post, thank you!  In January I busied myself tremendously with the online "Strada Easel Challenge."  Alas, I did not win a coveted Strada Easel, but I did win lots of valuable daily practice and produced 29 paintings in 31 days.  As you might expect, I would much rather paint that take pics, edit, post, etc, so it will be a long time till you see them here or on my website.  My freshest most current work is always seen on Instagram.  I hope you can follow me there if you're not already.  
Here you see a demonstration painting for one of my workshops.  I'm particularly fond of this one for it's crisp freshness.  You should see it in person!  Reasonably priced and your satisfaction is guaranteed.
