The Tin Man's Coup


This one was just for fun. [12×16] $50 Sold
Tomorrow I should be finishing the commissioned piece, which is a landscape in Hawaii. Then I am excited to start work on two other larger works; one 24"×48", and the other 36"×48". In between working on these studio pieces, I will be sketching outdoors as weather permits.

Waiting for a Bath


I spotted this old bathtub waiting for a re-finishing across the street from my studio. It called out to me to be painted, so I set up to do a plein air sketch. Several cars slowed down to observe, and a few people stopped to talk. I had a lot of fun painting this one. [16"×12"] $250 Sold

I also started a commissioned painting and finished another fun little painting of toys on a chair.

Still Life with Blue Bottles




Here is the finished painting of blue bottles (with a photo of the subject at right). [28"×20"] $300 Available

Mason Jar


I found that I enjoy painting mason jars because of the endless possibilities for coupling them with interesting items, both inside and out. I painted this tiny canvas yesterday. [5x7, oil, 30min] Sold

Sunflowers




Here are photos of the three sunflower paintings.

New Studio Space


I worked this weekend painting a still life of blue bottles in the sun. I am still getting situated, so I wound up with only a few hours of working time before the sun started shifting the colors. This will be a slightly larger painting than the others I have done since January.
I am looking forward to the spring and painting some outdoors where light isn't such an issue.
I finally took photographs of my studio space and have posted them here and below.

NOTE: This is a photograph of my studio, NOT a painting :)
