No. 874 Tulips in Glass Vase


Tulips in Glass Vase
Oil on Canvas Panel
7" x 5"

Tulips are not easy to paint. Flowers in general are not easy to paint. I had a tough time this year doing any still life with tulips that I was very happy about. I did end up being pretty happy with this one.

No. 870 Emerald Bay - Plein Air


Emerald Bay - Plein Air
Oil on Gessobord
5" x 7"

Way back in February, my dear friend and past student, Peggy, invited me down to California to teach small painting workshop. What an amazing treat! It was the perfect break from all the Northwest cold and grey. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Not only was teaching the workshop fun but Peggy took me out to do a little local plein air painting too.  Thank you again, Peggy, from the bottom of my heart!!



Palm trees are so cool.


Me holding fresh picked grapefruit right off the tree! I'm still amazed!
