Progress Shots

Love a big blank canvas; this one has been in my studio for a bit but I got inspired by a friends comments to paint a big floral with white roses and pink/red hollyhocks. I’m using some photos from my treasure trove of images (where the flowers have their own big folder). I’m doing something I haven’t done before and that is to surround the flowers with a rich and creamy background. More images to come…

No Boundaries

As you can see, the colors don’t quite match. If I were more of a techie- I could correct that but here I am- standing in front of my painting No Boundaries, which was sold at the Little Compton Summer Art Show! The photo below was taken outside on the north side of the house. I’ve painted this farmhouse and barns many times, this time exploring the foreground to really lead the viewer back to the buildings.
