Winter Blanket

This was done from a photo I had taken in Ouray, CO. It was the first snow and was so beautiful! It was like a blizzard and you really couldn't paint out so lots of photos.

Onions and Garlic

This is a study of simple shapes and bold colors. I had so much fun with this one, it went very quickly, limited palette, big brush loaded with color!

Head Study

This is a study, totally made up. I worked to keep my focus on the large shapes without calling attention to individual features. Worked to keep it loose and not get blogged down with the details.

Mary Beth

This is Mary Beth and what a great model she was! I didn't get it finished in the time that I had but I do like it sort of in this unfinished stage. Or truth be known I really didn't want to finish it from the photos that I took for fear I'd tighten up. This was done in a workshop and actually set her up outdoors.

Figure Study

This is a 11X14 oil on linen panel. My goal with this piece was to have fun and not worry so much about likeness and alot of detail. This was a fun piece!
