This still life drew me in with the shadowed area of the painting and not just the textural qualities, but the change of colors and broken bits...

Beach Weekend - On Reserve!


An Alla Prima rendering of a wonderful weekend spent at the beach.  Something to think about in the dead of winter when one yearns to get out of the cold and into the lovely warm blue waters.  Btw, this painting is set in a black floater frame which is included in the pricing.  If you'd like to see 'Beach Weekend' in the frame, I would be happy to send it via email.

Rooster - SOLD

I love this guy.  He makes me want to give out a morning wake-up call as well.  Full of energy and fresh paint strokes rejoicing in another 'great' morning shout out to the world!

French Melodies - SOLD

The fact that the under-painting tone is visible throughout this painting unites it in a soft harmonious palette that makes the colors all the richer.  This window sets above a violinists shop communicating the fact that 'yes indeed, if your violin is in need of repair', you've found the perfect place.

I love that all throughout Europe (at least the Europe that I experienced) has window boxes with brilliant flowers.  And there always seems to be lots of reds, corals, and oranges.  This looks to be a rather elegant arrangement due to the balconies beautiful woodworking.  Another work of art in play.  I can almost hear Le Vie en Rose playing softly in the background.
