"White in Shadow"

"White in Shadow" - Oil - 12" x 16" - SOLD

The shadow side of this white house and fence made a perfect foil for the oleander blooms caught by sunlight that grazed the shrub. The morning light played against the cooler shadows.

"Flowers from Heather"

"Flowers from Heather" - Oil - 14" x 11" - SOLD

Almost yearly, I paint a portrait of flowers sent by my children on Mother's Day. They always know I'll love that rememberance. For this bouquet, I set it in cool light beside my studio window and I think the resulting harmony is successful. Thanks, Heather!

"Sunset Mirror"

"Sunset Mirror" - Oil - 24" x 20" - Exhibition Painting - $2400

Try as I might, I could not make this image show this painting as it really is. The color combination is unusual and harmonious, not garish. Dashes of color make this work lively and rewarding. It's one that went right from the first to last stroke... something that happens only rarely for any artist!
