"Buttering a Bagel" (sold)

8"x6" image size

Buttering her bagel at the Grand Central Bakery in Portland's Sellwood community on a rainy morning. I really like doing these backlit subjects and look forward to practicing them more and more! Though I like the muted tones in this painting, I'd like to try this subject again with some more intense color--we'll see!

It's been a while since I have visited. I spent some time looking and reading. What a time of inspiration! Just love the freedom in the strokes and how the colors are so soft and pure at the same time. Will be back to visit soon.

I'm a first time visitor to your blog and can really appreciate your paintings. I particularly like that even though often times you use photos for your main sourse they still feel fresh.
