Wildflower Beauty

Wildflower Beauty 12 x 12 oil on linen panel
Yes, these were all in one place just waiting to be photographed and painted. These are along a little creek in Barsness park in Glenwood, Minn. so much beauty at every season of the year, one of my favorite places to paint .

Challenge of creating backlit clouds with delicate edges and the gentle aura of the warm colors projected from the moon. Very ethereal feeling to this painting

Bathtub with an Attitude

Bathtub with an Attitude  oil on panel 8x10
An overnight stay at a Friends home, dinner and a walk in the  lakeside yard all got me to this delightful feast for the eye, what a great re-purposing of an old bathtub.... gives it a whole new attitude.

Lovely reflections on a  morning walk just down the block. My favorite time of day. Used some fun colors in this.

Wild Cucumbers

Wild Cucumbers 8 x 10 oil on panel
Haven't posted for awhile busy playing with paint and teaching. I felt a desire to paint in a classical style and do some still life with the focus on the drama of light.
