"Green Pears"




















6 x 6 oil on masonite SOLD

I tried using a red ground on this to pick up the
complimentary green of the pears. I'm pleased with
the results and may do a series of pears with different
grounds.

"Snow Day"


















6 x 6 oil on masonite SOLD

This is my backyard. Not really. I'm in Dallas. The

ground is covered in thick white sleet...the closest we've
come this year to "snow". The entire city shuts down when
it gets icy because no one knows how to drive on the slick
streets. I just heard on the news that even with most people
off of the roads there were still nearly 200 car wreaks today!
It's kind of nice being literally stuck inside. It put me in a
Winter Mood. I put on a pot of beans and settled in to paint.
I found this vacation photo and thought it was apropos.

"Koi"


















6 X 6 oil on masonite
SOLD

I just read on someone else's blog how hard Koi fish
were to paint and I thought....no they aren't. Man, was
I wrong! I kept having to tell myself "paint what you see,
paint what you see!"

"Zen"




















12 X 12 oil on masonite SOLD

It was the coldest day of the year and my cat, Smokie,
found the sunniest spot in the yard and stayed there all day.

This was my first "loose" painting. I'm happy with the
left corner and the pink illuminated ear. However, I am
fighting the urge to correct the mouth, chin and nose.
Part of the learning experience will be to leave it alone.
