"Morning Bright"

“Morning Bright”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $500.00 USD

Continuing with my daffodil obsession, I found this orange cup by a neighbor’s stonewall. I couldn’t paint it where it was or I would have been found run over by the side of the road. So I cut and brought it home to paint outside on the east porch (in a vase) with this actual wall and view behind it. Plein air, sort of, alla prima for sure…

"Loving Cup"

“Loving Cup”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

I found this daffodil dancing in drizzle at the edge of a stonewall. I turned about and snipped it for this studio still life. I have enjoyed its cheery company on a very rainy day…

"On The Pond"

“On the Pond”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

The first daffodils are out, but it was all rain the first day. I had to work from the van a couple of times to get them right. They are such optimists in the winter landscape. Always make my heart skip a beat upon first discovery!…

"Slices"

“Slices”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

A little fun in the kitchen last night…

"Pear Piece"

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

It was not nice outside today… So I decided it was time for a still life. I had been saving these pears for just such an occasion. The fabric and layout fell easily into place, an unusual happening…

"Half and Half"

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

On rainy days I enjoy setting up still lifes to paint. Figs can be a challenge because of their dark color, but cut open they offer a different story. I really wanted to eat this, but had to wait until I had finished. It was good!…

"A's Rose"

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

I picked this rose the other evening when it got down to 31 degrees, just in case. Today it rained all day and winds gusted to 50 mph. I was happy to stay in and have this flower to work on…

"Lets Play Ball"

“Let’s Play Ball”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $500.00 USD

This was a part of a larger still life I had one of my recent Oil Painting Classes paint. They were doing so well with the still life that I set up next to them and just painted this baseball…

"Wound Up"

“Wound Up”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $500.00 USD

Back at the daylily patch, this was one of the few doing cork screws. Most of the others were curling back in their glory…

"Day Lily Dancer"

“Day Lily Dancer”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $500.00 USD

The day lilies are out in full force right now. Some flower beds are impossibly alive with many different varieties and riots of color. The best part for the painter is that a lot of the flowering is right in your face at eye level. No leaning over or sitting down to capture the best view…
