I am leaving for a week of vacation and I thought I would post 2 flowers with the hope that the spring will soon be here when I get back! (doubtful, but one can wish) I hope to gather lots of painting material on my trip. See ya in a week!

Florida Refuge

6 x 6 Oil on masonite
Please email for price

This is from a recent trip to Florida. The grassy field and palm trees were just blowing so rhythmically that it seemed magical, even though it was a cloudy day! There was a dirt road, thankfully, because I imagined all sorts of snakes in the tall grass!

Three Pears

9 x 12 Oil on Masonite

This is a painting I did a little while ago. I was gone this weekend and will be busy getting ready for a vacation I am leaving on Thursday, so I will have to scramble to get some paintings done before I go. I know I won't paint while away, but plan on bringing a sketch book.

The Farm

7 x 7 Pastel

This is another painting I have on my web and decided it would be a good painting to show in both spots. Some people have suggested that viewers don't always go to the web from the blog.
I donated paintings this summer to the Farm Alliance in town to raise money for them so I got to visit a lot of abundant gardens! It was a great project to undertake for many reasons, mostly the riot of colors.

After these long winters, we are honored with such a burst of color and glory in the spring.
I can't wait for these to reappear in my garden!

I thought I would add a piece from my website, I'm thinking it might be a good idea to exchange pieces once and a while for broader viewing. This is a favorite of mine.

Abstract 1

6 x 6 Pastel
Private collection

I thought since I haven't posted much lately, I would add a few more, and seeing I will be gone I won't really be lacking new work. This is an abstract from a series I was experimenting with. It's a good lesson on working with color.

Blue Vase

I've taken a little hiatus, but am back for a short while before I go on vacation next Thursday. I have been painting, but must admit I ran out of steam for posting. I think it is the winter doldrums. (Don't know the exact spelling for that word) Days are getting longer now, and the sun is stronger.... it does feel better. Although, there is a new prediction of a big storm tomorrow!

I really like the look and feel of these eggs on the fabric.

6 x 6 Oil on masonite

I have to admit, this was fun to do. My sister's dog Lily, she is really a tomboy.

Cup of Flowers

6 x 6 Oil on masonite
Please email for price

I tried painting these white flowers a couple times before I could get something worth posting. I think white flowers have to be harder than colored ones.

Jordan Farm Pumpkins

7 x 7 Pastel
Please email for price

This is a local farm, a big supplier of our fall pumpkins. That same field is covered in ice and snow now. I long to see the tractors out there again.
