Wild Wine

 Wild Wine  6 x 8 oil on linen panel
I always am attraced to wild vines, there is a grace and flow to them that is like a dance. These happen to be wild grape vines which are not only beautiful to paint but the grapes  make fabulous jelly. This is also done with palette knife work. predominanting.

Grounded oil on panel 6 x 8
Another palette knife painting am loving the feel of the texture and the clarity of color. Am loving the change from brush to knife just for the CHANGE alone, good to shake things up once in awhile.

Fall Jewels

Fall Jewels, oil on panel  6 x 8
 This began as a plein air painting in Carlos State Park very near where we live. However, when I got it into the studio the colors were too bright so reworked it in more subtle colors and am pleased with how it depicts the area as I remembered it.
