I love to paint from life, the values and colors

are right in front of you but I like to push or change them a bit

to make my vision work.

"Geraniums in the Window Box"

"Geraniums in the Window Box"
oil, 12x16"

This painting is painted on a cradled panel, can be hung 
with or without a frame.
I love painting red geraniums and this one had many. I also enjoy painting
what I is see in my mind without the whole composition 
in front of me. 
I saw geraniums in a window box, with an old window. I added the 
 valance later on, the top seemed to be empty without it.
 A challenge for sure.
I was really happy with this piece!

"Varnish Brush"

"Varnish Brush"
oil, 10x8"

I enjoy painting tin cans, their like a mirror reflecting images
that surround them.  
I usually use a sponge to varnish my paintings, the ones at Home Depot 
I found to be the best, they leave a nice smooth finish. I get a bit lazy
when it comes to cleanup, I varnish quite a few paintings at the same time, then
toss it. I also use water bottle caps taped on my palette for my 
medium, Liquin original, if there is some left over I put it in a sealed
container until the next sitting. I try to think of anything that makes life
a tad easier.
