You Heard Me! oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

This is part of a recent series of portraits.  No matter what else I paint, the face and figure are always the most challenging and in some ways the most rewarding.

Two Faced, oil on hardboard 5x7" $99

I read somewhere that you should never have the horizon enter and exit on different levels.  Guess I'm not such a good listener

This little group of clouds up in the left corner just tickled me. They are little escapees.

Eyelet, oil on canvas, 6x6" $99

Small departure from produce for a bit.  My friend and very talented painter Lori Twiggs loves to paint on canvas.  As you know, I'm fond of hardboard.  Decide to take a little side trip.  I actually did 2 small portraits on 2 different canvas's.  This one I am very pleased with.  The other one? you will NEVER see it.  I also will NEVER buy THAT canvas again.

Plated Up, oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

Remember when the turnips shriveled? wellllll...the greens on the beets didn't last 2 days! had to give them a haircut.  Can't say I'm disappointed
