Field with Purple Flowers

Field with Purple Flowers, 20"x20" Oil. This was done from a smaller painting I did for the 50 paintings in 50 days show. I did this with a hardware 1 and 2 inch paint brush and tried to stay loose. The photo came from a fellow artist, Stacy, she took it on one of her many walks in the bay area.

Going South on Hwy 101

Going South on Hwy 101, Oil 6 x 6. This is from a photo I took from my car window as I was driving down highway 101 going to San Lusio Obispo. I tried to make it simple with a few shapes and a few colors, like what I saw in the landscape.

Another Apple

Apples, Oil 5 x 5. I have been doing a painting a day for 50 days for a show I am in, so today I decided to do an apples. I needed a break. The apples are from a tree outside my studio, apples are great to paint and are good practice.

Bill, Oil 18"x18". This was done with my left hand, not the hand I normally paint with. This was also painted with a dollar paint brush from the hardware store. This is loose and the way I love to paint, I can't always get there, maybe I should always paint with my left hand. Bill is a dog I have painted many time, from different photos. He was a wonderful old dog that had really great poses. His owner bought two painting of him from me,  I continue to paint him from different photos she gave me, rest in peace Bill.

Black Dog

Black Dog, Oil 6"x6". I did two dogs for a person and the second one was chosen, this is the "other"one. I funked this up a bit by adding a green line around part of him and I changed the background to make him pop a bit. Anyone want a "black dog"?
