12 x 12 oil on canvas
This was a paint over of an original try at some hollyhocks. It isn't really done, but I had fun just playing around. I think it needs a little tweaking, not a masterpiece, but I achieved some satisfaction over what was on the canvas before! So many of my misses lay dormant without having any energy to try to right the messiness I created, (even tho I have good intentions to do so), I am happy about going back to one, at least.....

Upper Field

8 x 10 Oil on canvas board
This is a oil sketch I did for a larger painting I am doing for someone. I wanted to get an idea of how to handle it. I may make a few changes.

Abstract Boats

12 x 12 Oil on canvas   SOLD
This is another piece from my deconstructed series. I worked on this for a long time, and I'm not sure it is done. I decided to stop and look at it for a while, I do like the colors and shapes.

First Garden Grass

6 x 6 Oil on gessobord
This is one of my first garden grass paintings, posted a while ago. I thought it might be a good idea repost an old painting while I am working on other pieces. Some old paintings need to go in the trash, and some others are nice to revisit!

Lupin Field

8 x 10 Oil on canvas board
This is a painting from an incredible field I found a couple years ago here in Maine. The lupins are prolific in late spring and early summer along the coast and highways. This field, along a country road has me coming back to it every year. Not only is it filled with colorful lupins, there is a carpet of buttercups along with it. It is stunning! I wish they lasted all summer........

More Garden Grass 2

8 x 8 Oil on gessobord
This is an older grass painting that I forgot about. It is an early grass study, I think I have progressed a bit since this one.
