"Mr. Pepper" revisited





















6 x 6 oil on masonite nfs

This little piggy was one of the first paintings I
posted 2 years ago when I started my Blog. He
and his piggy wife, Salt, belonged to my dear
Grandma. I played with them for hours on end
and still consider them to be among my most
prized possessions. I know...weird. Let's just say
it doesn't take much to make me happy!

"Green Frisbee" revisted




















6 x 6 oil on masonite SOLD

I painted this precious little boy several years ago.
He was playing Frisbee at the park with his Dad. Or
at least
his Dad was trying to play with him. The little
boy
was so mesmerized by the Frisbee itself that he
didn't want to throw it back. I like to think he was a
budding artist and was checking out how
cool the light
looked reflecting on that bright green!

"Asian Delight" revisited




















8 x 8 oil on canvas panel SOLD

I had completely forgotten about this Sake cup.
It is so cute so I don't know why I only painted
it this one time. As I remember, this painting
was also what got me going on objects reflected
in other objects, an exercise that I still find to
be infinitely rewarding
