On The Sunny Side
10x8
Starting bid is only $50.00!!


I love to paint still life.  I have an assortment of pitchers, bottles, cups, vases, creamers...etc etc etc.  It's fun putting them together to create an arrangement of interesting colors or compositions.  This particular still life is done on gessoed hardboard and is 100% archival.  It was a little study.  I've been doing a lot of little studies lately to get back into the swing of things after this lengthy move and some other 'life' happenings that have kept me from painting but I am hopeful that 2016 is going to be a great year...  I've leased a new space again and will start teaching again early next year!  Looking forward to that..it's been a while.

Take care friends and thanks for looking!

The Graceful Swan


"The Graceful Swan"  5x7

Swans are such graceful and beautiful creatures.  Caught in the right light, they are really fun to paint.  The photo I used for this painting was taken near the Cotswolds, England during a painting trip there a couple of years ago.  

Thank you for looking!!

Roses and Ribbons

"Roses and Ribbons"  
8x10 oil on gessoed board


I love to paint ribbons for some reason.  I think it's because they pick up so much light and different colors from the objects around them.  Also they are a great way of connecting things in your painting making for a better composition besides just adding interest.  I grew these roses in my yard which I think are the best because they are more relaxed than the roses you find in grocery stores.

Thank you for viewing my work!
