Summer Garden

I liked the new green tomatoes next to the marigolds.  The rich dark browns of the earth really sets off the bright colors.

Asilomar Afternoon

This is my entry for the Virtual Paintout, August 2015.

I googled all over Monterey, California and found this gorgeous spot, Asilomar State Beach.

The unframed painting measures 5" x 7" and is painted in oil on a linen panel.  I used my knife more than usual and was delighted with the results.

I visited my family in southern California almost two years ago and met Baxter.  He's a tiny little guy with a huge personality.  His coat is so glossy black and I loved the reflective light from the sheets on his face.

Welcome to my blogspot and Happy New Year!!

Some years ago I found this small statue of St. Francis in the knick knack section of a local thrift store and decided he had to come home with me.  There were a few rocks from Monhegan Island in my studio that I added and now they all live harmoniously on top of my radio's speaker.

I painted this for Daily Paintwork's Weekly Challenge on a 5x7 linen panel.
