WIP (work in progress)

See my inspiration on the left. See below for finished painting.

Cantalope and Sunflowers

16 x 20


The sunflowers continue to bloom and continue to inspire me to paint still lifes. With temps in the 100's its best to be inside right now.

Sunflowers and Peaches

16 x 20 Oil on Canvas


More sunflowers from the garden and peaches from the grocery. The paint is good and thick, applied with a pallet knife.

Sunflowers and oranges

16 x 20 Oil on Canvas


I still have sunflowers growing in the garden and have enjoyed painting them. I just love the bright colors.


8 x 16 oil on canvas board


I painted this while participating in Last Friday Gallery Night in Granbury. I was painting at Stringfellow's Restaurant by the window. A storm blue in and the clouds got darker and darker. Between that and the romantic light in the restaurant it was a challenge. To top it off the electricity went out. It was time to go but I still managed to paint a bright happy picture.
