"Water Tower Sky"

“Water Tower Sky”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $500.00 US

I wasn’t going to paint today…getting ready for my show Saturday at Flavors From Afar at 6712 Snyder Plaza in Dallas, TX, 214-696-2327 but when I went for my walk this afternoon there was this sky waiting for me. So, no walk!…

"Comanche Peak"

“Comanche Peak”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I had to get out of my studio to paint today. It was 81 and a beautiful day. Suggestions had been made to paint Comanche Peak as it is the commanding presence above Lake Granbury for 10’s of miles around. I found a spot in a school parking lot which was far enough away and high enough for a great view. As the sun began to set, the colors came out and shifted into this wondrous collection of tones and values…

"Apples Wine & Swiss"

“Apples Wine & Swiss”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $500.00 US

I bought a bunch of different cheese the other day. This swiss was fun to paint, and to think about eating after! The apples were a bit of a challenge with some spots of yellow going into the shadow areas. Of course I didn’t drink any wine yet, or you wouldn’t be looking at this painting!!!…

"Blush"

“Blush”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I bought these Lilies a few days ago. They have been knocking me out with their delicious scent at night in my studio. Finally had to paint them so I can enjoy them back in the house. I assume they are some type of Stargazer hybrid as some buds only reach straight up and others open forward or down. They are not white as is usual, but a nice subdued creamy white…

Found a nice vase of my Mom’s to place the Daffies in. Couldn’t resist painting them all in the container…

"The First Daffy"

“The First Daffy”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

After picking what looked like the first daffodil bud to take inside and force open, I found a small grouping on the west side of my brother’s house all open. So technically this may not be exactly the first, but it was in the first bunch! They are such uplifting flowers to find at this time of year…

"Inner Sweetness"

“Inner Sweetness”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I’ve been juggling fruit around in my studio, figuratively, for a few days. This day the lemons caught my attention. I decided to do a low key approach. I think it work out well…

"Winters Stack"

“Winter’s Stack”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I was out and about counting birds for The Great Backyard Bird Count when I stopped to write some notes. I looked up. Here were the hay rolls all stacked up for the winter feed source. The sun was kissing the edges to give great drama to the hay against the darker shadow side of the old barn. This was a race to the finish as sun slipped in and out of a receeding cloud bank before the final set a half hour later. Working on into the after light I was treated to a most spectacular afterglow from the under bellies of the clouds…

"d'Affinois Brie & Friends"

“d’Affinois Brie & Friends”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

If I had known how good this brie was, I would have painted it faster and first! Or maybe sitting out for 8 hrs. under my hot painting lights ripened it more than usual and gave it extra flavor. Or maybe I was starving when I finished up!!!…
