"Maybe....not" oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

I've taken some time off from the flowers to work on some portrait/figure pieces.  It's amazing how much you have to re-hone when you change subjects.

"Flame" oil on canvas

Some days the flowers that grow on stems just aren't what floats the boat

"Waiting for the Bus (not)" oil on canvas 20x30 $1,600

I'm posting both these images out of shear frustration.  Two different settings on my camera, same painting, same location, same time of day.  Neither is "on the money" but you get the general idea.

This truck has been parked for eons in next to a house near us.  I don't know the owners or the story but it makes me smile.

"Working My Way Back" oil on hardboard 6x6 $99

If you have followed my blog at all you know I'm always complaining about the photo images.  WELL!  let me tell you, this painting is no more blue than a honey bee.  It's very much in the purple (red side) family.  I've been sitting here with Adobe and the original propped against my screen trying to get even close.  The camera I have seems to have deleted a major part of the warm red element.  With that disappeared the little spots of yellow and oranges.  You've just got to love technology....or not!
