"One Remaining"

I think sliced oranges give off a beautiful glow with the right light shining through. But not all slices are viewed equally, especially if one is in the deep shadow of a cup. This slice in the little pitcher has but a very small section peaking over the top, therefore giving off a slight glow as the light passes through.

"Egg and Honey" 10" x 10" oil on linen

I'm painting most every day. Sometimes I have a little trouble coming up with new ideas. Well, go outside, dummy! The foliage is beautiful...I just get so overwhelmed by the open space above me. I tried to take it a little slow on this piece and not rush through in my excitement to get started.

House portrait Puzzle

Hand-painted puzzles are a great gift for someone moving in to a new home. I love to paint puzzles, usually with gouache, an opaque watercolor. I've worked on location and worked from a clients favorite photograph. I've painted cars to Christmas cards and Birthday greetings. If you are interested in having a puzzle painted for you, please get in touch with me through my email. We can then discuss subject matter, size and price.

"Will You Marry Me" 10" x 10" oil

Well, I'm back from Germany. I did not draw or paint ANYTHING while I was there and I'm not so disappointed, for I had a blast playing with my new grandchild, Max. In the meantime, I've been hunting for little toys on etsy to paint, one of which I have already posted...."Here". This 10" x 10" painting was fun to paint, so I forgot to try really hard to "follow the rules" while working. However, I did play around a little by changing my perspective on the glass holding the flower. Notice it is quite impossible to be looking DOWN on the toy while looking UP on the glass.
