This painting will be in a group show that opens today at Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery in Shelburne.  I just dropped off 5 new pieces.  This one is 7"x7" and titled "Tender tulip".  I'm enjoying the tight close ups of different blossoms and trying to create a pleasing composition on a small piece of paper.

Sit or walk

I thought this piece was interesting since the young lady is sitting in front of a sign that is announcing a "walk event today"....funny how that happens..I like the way her hair gets "lost" in the background...edges are so important....

The poor irises didn't last too long around here...we had soooo much rain, but I managed a few pictures of some colorful beauties...this little painting is titled "Royal" and is on display at Frog Hollow State Craft Center in Burlington.  Rich, royal purples and hearts of gold....

This little painting (7"x7") is titled "Curious"...I get that feeling when I photograph these feathered friends that they either give you the hairy eyeball and send a warning of caution your way or they simply don't care and go about their business...I know I take a few steps back if a large rooster takes a curious interest!

polka dots

More pear portraits!  This time the little green pear sat on a green cloth with white polka dots...I exaggerated the dot pattern and pushed the background color to a rich red..

small pear

Little pear paintings...they are super fun to do...I love the shape of pears and they have all sorts of landmarks and curves plus their own personalities.  This little piece is in a sketchbook and is small..I love the hit of turquoise on the left.
