On a recent trip to Coronado Island I took lots of beach reference photos to use for painting. This is the first and I am happy with it...hope you like it too!

"Study In Blue And White"

8" x 10" oil on canvas board

I painted this with a student yesterday focusing on the difference of the blue and white in the light and in the shadows.  It was a fun exercise!

Beach Baby

First day of summer!  
Though I am miles from the beach, I will have to get down there this summer for more reference, these are fun to do!

Ribbons And Bows

6" x 6" oil on canvas board

This painting stayed loose and fresh while it fell off the brush.  It probably didn't hurt that it was my second portrait today.

Fresh Cut

14" x 14" x 1" oil on gallery wrapped canvas

Cut these flowers from my garden this morning, set them up in the natural light of the studio.  I needed to paint these very quickly because the roses were opening rapidly!

A Softer Light

10" x 8" oil on Raymar panel

This is another version of the flowers in the painting below.  This one from a slightly different angle had the softer light of the room illuminating it rather than a spot light.  The white flower on the left is my favorite.

Ranunculus Bunch

8" x 10" oil on board

Though I always have to look up the spelling of these flowers, they are one of my favorite, a little delicate, colorful and a bit wild!
