Rabbit cards

I painted these three Rabbit card Easter week. I gave the middle one to my grandson and just posted the other two to my nieces in Winnipeg as their birthday cards. Hope you like them!

Cruise Gifts

These two 5X7 paintings I gave as gifts to our Waiters on our recent cruise on Celebrity Eclipse. I have been painting a lot since then and in the last year but have been too busy to post. SORRY. I will try to keep more up to date this year. I have actually been painting a lot .

Spider Bouquet

This bouquet I also painted in February.I took the reference photo for this looking down on the flowers and the vase from above to exaggerate the pedals of the mums.The carnations and white rose diminish in the grander of the mums.I did several light washes on one petal at a time.

Feburary Tulips

                                        This floral study of Tulips I did earlier in February.

Cindy & her Goldens

I did this painting for a nurse I work with. It is of her with her dog and her daughters dog. It was a fun painting to work on.for the flesh tones I used a mixture of Cad. red, lemon yellow and yellow ochre; alizarin crimson and burnt sienna; and for the shadows cad red,burnt sienna and cobolt blue.the dogs fur was light washes of yellow ochre and the second dog had some terra rose added.
