Magnolia 5x7 oil Sold

Magnolias grow as trees or shrubs and as evergreens or deciduous plants, producing flowers that bloom in several different colors. I love the large white magnolia that grows on trees, they are messy though. At my last place of residence I could look out the window and see this magnificent grand magnolia tree.

Pansies in White 6x6 oil SOLD

I was sitting out on my deck and I looked down at these pansies, the sun was casting wonderful light and shadows. So of course I had to paint them. We are surrounded by so much beauty that God has created. Sometimes I take it for granted, or I am not paying attention or I get caught up into everyday life that will someday vanish. Dear God, let me see You and not myself.

Geraniums 2.5 x 3" oil framed Sold

This is a miniature of red geraniums. I am selling it with a frame. I have sold and won numerous awards for my mini's. They sometimes are as much work as larger paintings but very enjoyable to paint.

Apples 6x6 oil Sold

Painting fruits that have been cut, turn color really quick. Had to get it down fast, the apple in front is a tad bit more yellow in the original. I thought by adding the twigs it made the composition more interesting and brought more balance. I scan my small paintings,  makes it so much easier than photographing. I sometimes have to photoshop them to get it as close as possible to the original. What makes it nice is that these panels are smooth, if I scanned canvas, every weave would show. They are ampersand gessobord 1/8" panels.

The White Cottage, Russian River, CA, 6x6 oil

This painting is of a small cottage that is being used as an antique shop in Duncan Mills, which is in the Russian River area. I was so drawn by the light that was shinning on this quaint cottage. We travel their once a year, my grandfather built a cabin in the Monte Rio hills. As a child we would spend a lot of summers there. The river, the ocean and the redwoods all in a short driving distance. So many memories of the Russian River.
