"Native Treasures"


Oil on Board

Another painting from a recent trip to Santa Fe. . .this one shows one of the native artists displaying her work across from the plaza. I like the contrast of the woman in the bright sun to the artist in the shade.

Oil on Board

Dinner guests brought over a bunch of lovely fall flowers and I challenged myself to paint this chrysanthemum. I love how those flowers are like little fireworks!

"Summer and Fall"

Oil on Board
contact River Bend Fine Art for purchase information

The autumn colors have been truly outstanding this year. Then again, I think I say that every fall! And every fall, I think "Wow! What a great subject to paint!!" like I've never noticed them before.

"At The Ore House"

Oil on Board

This painting is done from a trip to Santa Fe to attend a great workshop by Carol Marine. It was a great experience! I'm trying to translate what I learned from watching Carol painting her beautiful still lifes to how I paint figurative pieces--a challenge!

Smith Rock in October

Yesterday was a gorgeous fall day, nice and warm and I had TIME! I went to paint here at Smith Rock State Park--one of my very favorite places.

The painting is 8"x6", oil on board.
