Completed on 2-24-2018 Just like the Elvis Costello song, Peace, Love and Understanding is something we could use right about now. 12x16 created with oils and acrylics on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.
My latest original painting. I enjoy looking through old vintage bird prints and came across this lovely creature! I wish the photo captured more of the fine detail. 12x16 on a flat wood panel. (Framing required ) I am continuing in a series of smaller animal, bird fanciful pieces! Thanks for looking!
Completed on 1-24-2018 Driving around with Sam the other day a magnificent Blue Heron swooped down in front of my car. I always consider unusual animal encounters some sort of sign. I like to think it means someone is watching out for us all. Just a reminder . Anyway, that's the idea for this painting. Yes Blue Herons can live near the ocean and fresh water. I am working on a series of smaller paintings for now. Thanks for looking!
Completed on 1-19-2018 This is a painting idea I had been thinking about for quite sometime. I decided to work on wood for this one with acrylics and oils. 16x20 with painted sides. I was inspired by one of my favorite painters Matisse. The purple dress I found in a fashion magazine and brought along some of my favorite things to balance out the composition.
The art director from a Unitarian Church in Los Angeles contacted me a few months ago about showing my images as a backdrop to their Christmas service . He sent me this shot which was before the service began. I felt honored my work was selected.
