"Red Ball cap" 12in x 12in oil on linen


While the model was posing I thought she needed a red ball cap, so I painted one on.   If life were only that easy.   I painted this on a Senso panel that has a clear gesso coating so the linen shows.   The only think I don't like about it is that the linen texture is not fine, but rather coarse.     I like to have the drawing show some and this panel is good for that.

"5 Peonies" 8in x 8in, oil


Today I tried something new... at least new to me.   I painted this without sketching it in first and limited myself to one hour.   I realized that when I sketch in first I end up getting very tight with the painting.  So my not sketching in my painting is looser.    I also used a limited palette, Titanium white, black, indanthrene blue, and quinacridone magenta, but did use some cad yellow light in the white to warm up the light on the surface.

Miss Pink Lady was tired of all the attention so she decided to hide out in the bowl room.   Her friends were confused, they thought she just went to make a phone call but there were no phone booths anymore....  she was here a minute ago.

"Green linen shirt"


Our model rode her bike to the painting session and wore this lovely green linen shirt.   There is a lot of enjoyment for everyone during these 3 hour sessions.   So glad to be doing it again even tho it is every other Friday.   But I will take it!

"Cherie's Overlook" 6in x 6in. Oil


Cherie struggled to reach the top of the cup handle so she could see how many of her friends were trapped in the bowl.   Now how was she going to help them escape and how was she going to get down without leaving cherry juice.

Exploring New Territory. 8in x 8in oil


This past year was not much of a painting year for me.   So as a result I am very rusty and out of practice! Trying to do little paintings again and thought I would start with something I like to paint, cherries.  They are such happy little things and are so excited to be out of captivity and exploring the neighborhood.

Thank you for your interest in my work.
