Champagne Celebration

Oil Painting Vase Still Life Art Bottle Ice Party DrinkII

Oil on canvas, 10" x 8".

It's time for a celebration and to pop the cork!  Of course I loved painting the ice cubes and glass bucket. The grays and golds of the painting were what kept me interested.

Radical Radishes

Oil on canvas, 8" x 10".

An arrangement of my homegrown radishes was my subject again as I wanted to work with the light and dark patterns on these earthy vegetables.  The playful roots were an added bonus.

Sadie in Summer

Oil Painting Pet Cat Art Animal Portrait Siamese Feline Sunshine

Watercolor on Bristol board, 10" x 11 5/8".

I painted this portrait of a beautiful Siamese cat a few years ago when I was exploring painting with watercolor on Bristol board.  I remember how I liked the "puddling effect" of the paint on the smooth surface.  It's also much easier to lighten an area that has become too dark or intense on the Bristol without ruining the surface of the painting.  I think I captured Sadie's intense interest in her environment!

Potted Bell Peppers

Oil Painting Vegetables Still Life Art Kitchen Garden

Oil on canvas, 8" x 10".

I spotted a display of these potted peppers at the Home and Garden Show in Little Rock, AR recently.  I don't remember what the vendor was actually selling, but these three guys really caught my eye.  The individual peat pots have interesting personalities too!

Cold Water Goose

Oil Painting Wildlife Art Animal Portrait Canadian Goose

Oil on canvas, 8" x 10".

This goose was with several of his buddies in the shallow water at a river's edge.  The sun was bright and warm but the water was very cold in the Arkansas winter.  I liked his patterns of light and dark against the blues and browns of the water.

Winter Woods

Oil Painting Landscape Art Winter Trees Snow

Oil on stretched canvas, 8" x 10".

I was intrigued by this composition of a tangle of trees in winter. The snow and vegetation are alternately lit by the sun and cast in deep shadow. The sky coming through the bare trees was also colorful.

Feisty Rooster

Oil Painting Pet Portrait Art Chicken Farm Animal

Oil on Canvas, 10" x 8".

Some roosters look very confrontational.  But they can also be seen as simply assertive I think.  This one has a certain look and the viewers can decide what his attitude represents to them.  I think he's feisty.

Lee Creek Harmony

Oil Landscape Painting Water Tree Leaves

Oil on canvas, 12" x 9"

A stretch of lazy Lee creek in Arkansas was lit with summer sun falling on its water and rocky bed when it was captured in a photo. The addition of dioxazine purple to my palette added a dreamy quality I decided.

Tabby With Toy

Oil Painting Pet Cat Art Animal Portrait

Oil on stretched canvas, 8" x 10".

This guy's human family shared a photo of him playing with a toy near the hearth of their burning fireplace. I thought it was adorable and I got the feeling of him enjoying the warmth of a fire in these winter months. The sides of the canvas are painted making it easier to hang unframed if desired.

Group of Pears

Oil Fruit Still Life Painting Garden Kitchen Food


Oil on stretched canvas, 11" x 14" x 3/4".

Pears are always interesting to paint because their shapes resemble characteristics of the human form. These multi-colored pears really glowed when their forms were brightly lit in this setting. This painting has staple-free sides that are painted if you'd like to hang it unframed.
