Dance of Three

Dance of Three (6x6)
  This is a still life where I used some transparent oil colors as an underpainting. I love the effect of the colors showing through the top layer of paint. It is always a surprise how it turns out.

DAFFODILS


   These daffodils can't help but to cheer us up in these winter months. There have been a few already blooming here in the south. These were a pleasure to paint. I love all the varieties of this flower. Welcome spring!

WATER LILY

Water Lily (8x8)
 Waterlilies make good painting subjects. The center of interest for the composition is pretty obvious and the shapes and reflections make a good natural composition. Longwood Gardens has a wonderful waterlily garden with every variety you can imagine

  I enjoy the challenge of painting objects reflected in shiny surfaces. It adds a lot of interest to a painting.
