South Beach Beauty

16 x 20 Oil on Stretched Canvas SOLD
I am working to finish pieces I have started or get rid of starts I don't want to work on.  This is one of my favorites that was stalled.  I did this scene in watercolor a while ago with good results.  It captures the Art Deco of the Miami Beach strip on a hot sunny day.  I was drawn to the bright sun and shadow. This feels like a lazy lunch on a great day to me.

Waiting for Spring

 6x6 Oil on Panel

I saw this proud guy outside my sister's window a couple of weeks ago.  So much snow.....and yet she feeds the birds and they gather throughout the day.  A nice splash of color in an otherwise white landscape.

Perfectly Nice Pear Painting

 16 x 20 Oil on Stretched Canvas

In order to gain some momentum again, I decided to finish some starts.  This is one that has been hanging around the studio. I brightened the background, played with some contrasts, etc.  It is a nice painting- I like the interplay now - the warmth of the walls and table against the blues and greens.  I may touch it a bit more, but for now, I am happy with it.  It is bright and sunny and restful.

Early Morning On the Road

8x10 Oil on Panel. SOLD

It is always early morning when I leave my Ohio hometown to head back towards Boston.  The farms are majestic-the long flat fields in a patchwork and the light catching the barn roofs-the mist rising.  That is what I see and sense and feel.  So here's to Ohio, always home.
