In Progress

This is the 18x 24 inch painting that I am working on.  Still much to do, but it is coming along.  Too tired tonight to work any more on it.

Ok...ok...I did say that I wouldn't change a thing.,...well the background troubled me....I wanted much more light.  I like it better....what do youall think?

This is the finished commissioned painting.  I refuse to touch it again.  I must not allow that to happen.  Sometimes I waiver....go back in....and wish I hadn't.  Sooooo, this one is going to be set aside and I will leave it.

This is a preliminary drawing for a painting that I have been commissioned to do.  Now I need to study up a bit and plan a palette.

Still Life # VII

This is a 9"x 12" Gouache painting on hot press watercolor paper.  This particular painting took quite a while to bring around.  I wanted to keep the colors fresh and lively.

Soft Pink Rose

This is a small approximately 6"x 6"drawing on Bristol paper.  I am planning on returning to drawing for a while until I feel that I have worked through some of the value issues.

Strawberries in Glass Bowl

This small gouache painting is painted on a 140# acid free watercolor paper.  I like the graphic quality of this small painting.

Red Rose

Working on gesture wipeout several times until I just gave into letting it happen with thought...if that makes any sense.

This little 6"x 6" painting is painted on a small stretched cotton canvas.  After all my work in gouache I see a definite change in my work. ( Brighter color and less mud)  It has been a good thing for me to change things up a bit and infuse my work with some new energy.
