"Mental Game" oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

This is the first in a series of the same dancer in all forms or repose. I'm not sure that's the correct verbiage. She isn't resting but she isn't dancing either. At any rate, there will be more.

"Contemplate" oil on canvas, 12x12" $396

this turned out to be one of the most difficult portraits I have ever tackled. I am very happy with it now but getting there was a real challenge.

"Cat Watch" oil on hardboard 5x7" $99

I've painted hundreds of pets. This is the first time I have painted our dog Moqui. This is the landing where she waits for us if we are downstairs in the studio where the cats live and she isn't sure where they are. Two of them, one of her. She knows the odds are against her

"3...But What Road?" oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

this was an interesting piece. When I finished painting I was really frustrated. The next morning, seeing it fresh I was pretty pleased. How does that happen?

"Lagoon" oil on hardboard, 6x8" $132

Well!photos went considerably better today. It's a beginning.
This is the first plein air painting I have done since our move. This is actually the lagoon right below our house. In fact our property comes right down to the waters edge. Just guessing but you will probably be seeing a lot of this little body of water.
