11 x 14 Oil on Canvas $150.00

I took a photo of this Moped shop while dining at Lili's on Magnoia in Ft. Worth. I would love to jump on one and ride off into the sunset, but instead I painted it! I have been working on this for the past few weeks.

Bird of Paradise

10 x 10 Oil on canvas


I received these flowers from my Valentine, BJ. They were really beautiful and so appreciated I had to paint them. What a sweetie!

Sushi 2

20 x 24 oil on canvas


I did this as 8 x 10 before as a study. (posted Jan 17th.) I liked the way it came out so I enlarged it. It is always a challenge to get that loose look like the study. I have been working on this off and on for about a month.

Brazos River Grasses
11 x 14 oil painting on canvas
Painted 2/7/09 plein air
This is from the Brazos River in Pecan and one of my favorite places to paint. It was cloudy most of the time I painted this scene. The clouds did break up and occasionaly the sun would shine in select areas. It was an incredible display that lasted about 10 seconds. I had to work fast and from memory to capture that highlight. It was windy and in the high 60s.
This painting is available for purchase through Dutch Art Gallery, Dallas, Texas

Little Cuties

Clemintine oranges

5 x 7

Painted 1/31/09

I set this still life up in my studio this weekend.

What I really got excited about with this one is the reflections in the blue bowl.
