"Join Us"
Oil on canvas board
16 x 20




















I love to go outside and paint from nature.  But it is so hard. The sun moves, clouds come it, and in a very short time the scene I am painting has completely changed.  It requires both speed and accuracy.  So, I decided to go on to my back porch and paint. I did this over 3 days, going outside at the same time everyday for about a couple hours until I got it.  I think this is my most successful plein air painting yet.

Desert Apples

I am having to much fun with the color. Juxtaposing warm and cool. I hope you enjoy viewing these as much as I enjoy making them.

Fun fun fun!  I am using more bright color, thicker paint, larger canvases and am having a blast.
