Size:  12x12 Price:  prints available Acrylic on Canvas Paper, then mounted on 1/2" pressboard (edges painted) I found the reference photo for this puppy on pmp-art.com. and couldn't resist painting his portrait.   Pmp-art graciously allows Artists to use their photos without fear of copyright infringement.   Unless I take the photo myself or ask permission to use a friends photo, I use this site when I am looking for subject matter.  My still life attempts are set up live, however.   I have a gallery set up on that site that directs you to the original reference photo and photographer.

Birdie 4

Price: $50.00
Media:  Acrylic on Gessoboard
Genre:  Birds

A grouping of 4 birds so far.   This one looks a little worried, I wonder what he sees.
When I adjusted the color of this photograph, I matched the painting for the bird and
in the process, the sky ended up a little less bright.  It has a little more Phthalo Blue than
this picture shows, too.  Cheers!

Birdie 3

Price:  $50.00
Media:  Acrylic on Gessoboard
Size: 6x6

This is one of three in a bird series. I really like birds, and I'm trying to capture the same
painting style on all of them.  I feel that the first one and this one are the look I was going
for, so will try to match the next few to that style (vs. the dove I painted yesterday).

Relax at the ocean

Seascape 24x36 Media:  Acrylic on Heavy duty stretched canvas Back stapled 1.5" thick, scene continues around the edges. Price: prints available This ocean scene reminds me how much I love the ocean.  The color of the water, the movement of the waves.  I can almost hear it and feel the moisture in the air.  The foam of the waves was quite the challenge, but I found that if I paint it upside down, it helps me to see the shapes and depth of color instead of trying to paint foam.  Contact me for shipping costs.  The heavy duty canvases are pretty heavy weight wise.  I'll have to bring it to the post office once I know the destination.

Pretty Pink Peonies

Price: prints available Media:  Acrylic on canvas Size: 20x24 These flowers are Peonies.  My husband does landscaping, so the picture was taken in one of his customers' yard.  The surprising detail he got with his Iphone is wonderful,  of course I made a few artistic choices but I'm happy with the way it turned out.   I was in the mood to paint something pretty, so this was just the ticket.  This painting brings me joy,  I hope it gives you joy too!
