"Sprig in the Cottage Sink" oil 8x8

This old sink was in a cottage in Carmel that my husband and I stayed in. I have painted this sink before in different perspectives. I picked the sprig of geraniums from the window box outside the cottage. I am so attracted to old things, they have so much to say without speaking. 

"Spring Brings the Lilacs" oil 8x10

The lilacs are in full bloom right now and are so beautiful. I have a lilac tree in my backyard that is covered with lilacs. I clipped some off the tree to paint this painting, they started to show a sign of wilting so had to get the painting done soon. I took some pictures of other set ups to paint, one of them are the tree itself.

"The Painted Apple" oil 6x6 Sold

On the turps container I took some turps and paint and let the red and blue colors drip down.  Wanted to get that dripping effect, seemed to work real well. Getting ready to teach a workshop tomorrow, it is always exciting to see the end results of each students paintings.

"Past Memories" oil 8x10

My friend Ken took this photo of this old collapsing barn, located in the Santa Cruz mountains. I grew up in the foothills of that area. Been to Santa Cruz quite a few times in my life as a child and adult. I was drawn to the beautiful blue in the shadows . So many memories lie within this frail old barn.

A Walk in the Park oil 8x10

This is a painting of my husband and our bichon dog, Toby. It was a hot summer day and the light was coming through the trees casting these wonderful shadows. There is a lake in the middle of the park, you can walk around it and view the beautiful surroundings. The photo was taken a couple of years ago, I had always wanted to paint it and finally I did. Toby just took a few brush strokes and was done.
