White Violets/Teacup

"White Violets/Teacup
oil, 8x8

I set these violets up in my studio and painted
them from life. 
This is one of the teacups that my sister in law was so gracious 
to give to me. Love the color.

Crisp White Peonies

"Crisp White Peonies"
oil, 8x10

Painting flowers brings a joy in my life. They are so 
beautiful and so many to choose from. Before picking any out,
I examine them carefully to see which one strikes me the most.
It's hard because there are so many choices.
God brings so much beauty in our lives and it's all 
around us.

The Lemon

"The Lemon"
oil, 8x10

Set this still life up and painted it from life.  My son made this beautiful
bowl in his pottery class. He did so well with pottery but 
never pursued it, he was more into sports. I was drawn to the
 lemon casting a striking reflection on the table and on the bowl.

"Cow in the Meadow"

"Cow in the Meadow"
oil, 8x8

On a trip to California we stopped off at Duncan Mills. There
were cows grazing in the meadow, got a few photos shots of
them. They don't seem to be shy at having their pictures
taken. This one here seemed to love it.

Teacup and Comfort

"Teacup and Comfort"
oil, 8x10

I set this still life up and painted it from life. My sister-in-law gave me
this beautiful teacup along with many more that I plan on painting.
I used the plant to add direction with the leaves to encircle the teacup
leading to the book. The teacups shadow also keeps it in the circle. The plant
and book seem to be comforting the teacup just like those
that love you.
