Around and Around
Oil on canvas on panel
6 x 6
SOLD




While looking at this painting I noticed that my eyes kept going around and around the painting starting at the bottle, down the flower stem to the first apple, up to the second apple and back to the bottle, down the stem, and over and over again. I hope you don't get dizzy.

I'll be hanging some of my art Tuesday March 1 at the Scooters in South Austin. My painting buddies Deborah, Ruthie and Sandra will have work up too. It will be there until the end of April. So maybe you'll get a chance to stop by and see it in person.

Morning Bottles
Oil on canvas on panel
6 x 6
SOLD



I have been having so much fun painting these bottles and setting the light low and from behind. It feels so much like early morning light. Which is my favorite time of day. It holds so much promise.

Morning Oranges

I just love this little painting. It has such a warm glow to it, like the morning light.
I think I am going to paint more from this set up.

Niece Elise
Oil on Canvas
16 x 16
SOLD



I finally finished this portrait of my niece. I had to wipe the face many times because I just couldn't get the likeness or the expression right. But I think I finally got it.
