Her Girl

10" x 8" oil on linen panel

I love painting portraits particularly when they fall off the brush.  I wanted to keep going on it but decided that at least in this case, less is more.

Rainy Day Drive

11" x 14" oil on board

Edit, edit, edit!  The reference for this painting was filled with lots of details on both sides of the street but I wanted the painting to be about the rainy day feel of the scene so lots of editing had to take place.  I'm happy with the results.

Feel free to contact me for more information about this piece.

Two Birds

8" x 8" oil on board
sold

After all the years I have been painting, I think this is my first painting of birds...really?  Also, this is my first painting on birch panels.  They require some prep on my part but I have to say that I really love the way the paint slides around!

Moroccan Boy

10" x 8" oil on canvas panel

I've had lots of challenges painting lately but I have enjoyed the process. I have discovered a new joy in painting of late.  I am pushing myself in new ways...I can't wait to see what happens next!

Afternoon Light

10" x 8" oil on linen canvas board

This was my first painting of peonies and oh how I struggled to make it read.  It should be like anything else I paint, shape, value, color, etc., but the flat overcast light made this challenging.  Ultimately using subtle color/temperature shifts I believe I achieved my goals.

I love painting portraits but don't seem to do it often enough so in honor of Mother's Day I painted this little one.

Happy Mother's Day to the every kind of mother out there!

Colors of Yellow

12" x 12" x 1"
oil on gallery wrapped canvas

I seem to be painting a lot of flowers lately.  Some set-ups are those that a student will bring in to paint but this was one I set up for my class.  These beautiful yellow roses came from my back yard and I loved the way they clustered and draped in the vase.

Please contact me for information about this piece.
