Marsh Grass

11 x 14 Pastel on paper

I have done this scene in a smaller format, but wanted to do a larger version for an entry in a show. I am happy with the result, I love these grass paintings for their negative space I get to work with.

Golf Path 1

7 x 9 Pastel on paper

This is the first of 2 little studies I have done from a local golf course. It is a beautiul spot year round, and even tho it is private, it allows walkers and x-country skiers in the winter. I hope to do a larger of these.

Flower Path

11 x 14 Pastel on paper (framed size 16 x 20)
sold

I did an oil painting of this scene a while ago, and just redid it in pastel for a show I entered. It is from a local flower farm, and a favorite of mine. We had a bonus day here today, low 80's and lots of sun. Just one day like this, so we savor them when they come. Tomorrow, back down in the 60's, these flower gardens are fading, but the colored leaves will take their place!

Summer Blues

8 x 8 Oil on canvas board

I don't think I can ever get tired of these colors. They make me happy, I am always drawn to them. I think I was born in the wrong part of the world, I would like to be around this setting year round.

8 x 8 Oil on canvas board  SOLD

A fun painting to do, everyone should paint chickens, or at least take pictures of them, they are so entertaining.

High Season

11 x 14 Pastel on Paper (framed size 16 x 20)

This is a scene that will be repeated here, maybe a little too much. I get hung up on some views, so I have painted this in different mediums and different sizes lately. So, hopefully you will find it worthy also, and not be too bored with it as is pops up now and again! I guess I can say, it is good practice to try a particular scene more than once, the only thing is, I haven't varied it enough to do some comparisons....

Hosta

12 x 12 Oil on canvas board

I started this with the idea that it was going to be too much, so with no pressure I persevered.
I am happy with it, it was an interesting piece to do. I think I need to have a session with my son photographing, I feel all my pictures have been bad. He is technically good. I am not happy with my results, and can't even fix them in photoshop. I think I had better luck with my cheap little point and shoot!
