Autumn Travel

8 x 10 oil on linen - SOLD

I love autumn with all of its wonderful colors and the clear blue skies.   It rivals spring with all of its fresh green - not sure which I like the best.  They are both beautiful times of year.  I haven't been painting much lately, just haven't been motivated with all the distractions of the holidays and busyness that happens this time of year.

Oriole #1

 6 x 6 oil on gessobord - SOLD

For my birthday my wonderful husband gave me an IPad.  I have been wanting one to use for painting and this was my first try with it.  I still have a few kinks to work out, especially how to prop it up to view my reference photos as well as just general knowledge of how it works!!!!????  I have an IPhone and have "issues" with it also - just can't teach an old dog too many tricks, so it's a S-L-O-W process.

Pigeon View

8 x 12 oil on linen panel

I believe the hardest part of having a blog is trying to come up with a title for each post.  This is the best I could do for a title today.  I know pigeons are nuisances but they have such pretty colors which are fun to paint.   We don't have many out where I live but we do have them downtown.
