This is the last of the painted Christmas presents for this year. I made it up to fit a particular spot in a particular house. I first did a small study and then painted this large version of it. It was very enjoyable to paint large and intuitively. ( I hope it looks good in the house!)

This was a totally fun painting to do. I had a great time playing around with the colors in the shadows and highlights.
Soon to come - fantasy flower.

This is a painting I did from a small plein air study in the backyard of my friend Sharon's house on a morning when the snow started coming down really hard. We left soon after so we wouldn't get stuck in her pasture.

Well, its been awhile since I posted anything - lots of Christmas painting going on. I had fun painting these for something different. I'm still working on my very small oil sketches and trying to figure out the cool/warm relationships. But these are fun! Wait till you see the tomatoes . . .
