Falling Petals, oil on canvas, 20x30" $1,650

The current figure series I'm working on is exclusively female.  I have been including bird imagery using different formats.  For some reason, this piece didn't seem appropriate for an aviary element.

Blue Orbs, oil on hardboard, 6x6" $99

The definition between the reds and oranges is much more defined in the real painting.  I shot this image so many times and the camera just wouldn't pick that up.

Petaluma 3 oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

Thought this boat created a wonderful abstraction.  You're never quite sure if you are looking at it right side up or upside down!

Petaluma #1 oil on hardboard 6x6" #99

You know how sometimes you travel to a place for the first time and you pick a hotel for no apparent reason? well, that's what we did when we went to Petaluma, California last year.  Lucky us! this was one of the views from our hotel room. It was very early in the morning and not much stirring.  That view and a cup of good coffee.  Didn't need much more.

"Long Shadows" oil on hardboard 5x7" $99

This was the view from the windows at a winery in Walla Walla, Washington.  The landscape is so different from our side of the mountains.  They actually have a horizon.

"Merge" oil on canvas 20x30" $1,650

I've had this idea hanging around, bugging me for quite some time.  I want to do an entire series of either figures or portraits all sharing the same background.  Since I was already playing with female figures/birds this didn't seem like to major a jump.  The drape of the fabric cascaded like water so it somehow made since to combine the two.

"Drift" oil on hardboard 12x12" $400

this is one of those pieces that I made myself stop before I had planned.  There was so much more in my head that I thought I was going to do but the painting said "done!"
