Five Flower Pots

I painted this piece on Sennelier Paper.  It's CP, but has a smooth surface that produces a crispness I like for still life subjects.  This piece is 5.5 x 8 inches. 

Country Lane

This is typical of a rural scene in Pennsylvania.  Lots of hills and valleys.  And I paint these pieces from memory.

Have At It!

Lately we've had some discussions on WnW, and members have convinced me not to wait for a lightning strike of inspiration, but just have at it. This is one of the results: "Summer River" 5x7 on Arches 140 lb. block paper.

Patio Flowers

This is a preliminary study that I painted - a warm-up, kind of, for a larger flower market painting that I'd like to do. Always wanted to paint a French flower market scene. So many ideas, so little time. It's also inspired by my love for potted chrysanthemums. The pink is one of my favorite pinks: Sennellier Carmine.
