"Precious Time"

"Precious Time"
oil, 10x8"

Time is precious and it goes by so quickly. Sometimes I seem to waste
time by thinking too much and not doing. I know that when Christ is first
in my life it's always through Him that shows me His ways and not my
own ways and it always brings a peace. I usually talk to God as I paint, 
which is so comforting. I am here for such a short time, will I put my trust in the
world system that will never satisfy or will I put my trust in You Lord 
that created everything, I choose You Lord!

"Daisies" Botanical

 "Daisies" Botanical
oil, 8x10"

I had quite a few daisies in a vase but decided to paint just a section of them 
  as a study for a botanical painting.
So many flowers to choose from, each with their own charm.
God gives us so much beauty to absorb! 
What a wonderful God He is because of His Love for us!

"Pansies in the Old Blue box"

 "Pansies in the Old Blue Box"
oil, 10x8"

I painted some of my favorite flowers, pansies, impatiens and lobelia.
I thought they looked good grouped together along with the old blue box.
When I first started this painting the background seemed to light so
I darkened it to bring out the pansies more, which helped a lot.

"Botanical Geraniums"



"Botanical Geraniums"
oil, 10x8"

I love looking at botanical paintings, so I decided to paint the geraniums in
that style. Observing the leaves, flowers and stems. Doing more of
a study on the subject most backgrounds are usually a solid color and
value, mainly focusing on the plant itself.

"Geraniums in the Shadows"

"Geraniums in the Shadows"
oil, 8x10"

Painting flowers makes me happy, so many to choose from.
Also painting the light makes me happy. What drew me to painting
was exactly that, the light. I studied mainly value for about a year and
found it to be extremely important. 
When visiting museums or galleries I always went to the paintings
that portrayed the light along with beautiful shadows.

"Rhododendrons Abundant Blooms"

These rhododendrons are in my yard that bloom beautifully
every year. Living in the Pacific Northwest it is amazing 
how abundant and large they get. When I was
living in California, never could I even keep them alive.
So it is a treat to live amongst such beauty!

"Daisies in a Basket"

 "Daisies in a Basket"
oil, 11x14"

I set this still life up a few times until it finally felt good.
I am always drawn to painting floral and still life, it just stirs me
 inside when a vision comes to mind, not always happens though but 
when it does it's time to put the brush to the canvas pronto.

"Red Geraniums on Display"

 "Red Geraniums on Display"
oil, 10x8" Sold

More red geraniums, I can't keep count on how many 
red geraniums I have painted, they seem to
be quite popular.
Maybe it's the lush reds against the greens, or maybe
it's just because they are red geraniums. I have had some commissions
that the client said they brought back wonderful memories.
  I love painting red geraniums!

"Time for Tea"

 "Time for Tea"
oil, 8x10" Sold

Set this still life up to paint, I really like using clocks in my paintings,
I have used this one before. For a better balance I added the painting in the background. 
I haven't painted in over a month, been remodeling bedrooms and my studio.  When I pulled everything out of my studio I was shocked on how much stuff I had in there.
I have commissions to get to, it will feel 
wonderful to get back to painting!

These gerberas came to me in a beautiful flower arrangement,  
   I plucked out the gerberas and put them in 
this small glass pitcher. Loved the harmony with reds, oranges and
