12 x 12 Oil on canvas board
This started out to be an abstract scene, but my realism tendency won over. I will continue to try to get more abstract as time goes on...

Big Shot

8 x 8 Oil on gessobord
I always feel like roosters are strutting around with an attitude. I've seen some that have been a little ornery, I am sure there some more personable, but they are definitely fun to paint!

Dappled Light

18 x 24 Oil on canvas
This painting is based on dappled light shining through leaves onto the sidewalk. I am intrigued with shadows on the ground, and have been toying with different ideas for reproducing them into paintings. I used part palette knife and part brush for this painting.

I often feel when I am in a frustrated painting pattern, I return to the Maine coast and sea for stability.

Summer Bouquet

Flowers for the psyche in the middle of cold and snow,,,,
This is more of a quick sketch I did, always trying new techniques. I am satisfied, but always think there is room for tweeking!

Charleston Window Box

12 x 16 Oil on canvas
I enjoy spending time in Charleston. Like my Key West experience, I can wander these historic streets endlessly and admire the architecture. I love to read all the informational plaques scattered around the city. The gardens, plants and window boxes are superb, here is an attempt at painting one of the gorgeous windows. I tried some new ideas with painting this, the results were not what I wanted as an outcome, but a good lesson.
