Roo Time - SOLD

"Roo at Max Patch"
8x8 Oil on Linen Panel

Painting dogs is usually not my subject of choice.  But when my cousin 
shared a photo of her dog, Roo looking so regal, it had to be done.

Palm Trees - SOLD

"Distant Hills"
5x7 Oil on Linen Panel

I enjoy painting these really tall palm trees.  I find myself searching my California photos for palm trees in the hope that there will be a scene to support painting the trees.  Weird, I know.  But whatever floats your boat.

Quietly - SOLD

"Quiet Day on the Farm"
5x7 Oil on Linen Panel

I'm sure farmers don't have many quiet days on the farm, guess that's why I'm a painter.

Just Indicating - SOLD

"Mountainside Lupine"
12x12 Oil on Linen Panel

Had fun trying to just "indicate" the beautiful lupine. There's always that line 
that you don't want to cross & hopefully I've stopped just short of it.

Cast Shadows - SOLD

"Cast Shadows"
9x12 Oil on Linen Panel

A new subject for me.  A challenge color wise because I haven't painted in a 
primary color palette. I enjoyed painting the shadows as much as the buoys.
