Sunflowers

This is a 14 x 11 oil done on linen that was painted in a Trisha Adams’ workshop. It is hanging in the home of a friend that has many of my paintings.

This is a 6 x 6 oil on a panel. My niece took this beautiful photo. When I saw it, although I don't paint flowers, I couldn't pass this one up.

My niece took the beautiful photo reference I used to paint the above. When I saw the photo, although I don’t paint flowers, I couldn’t resist painting this one.

Sours’ Grocery

11 X 14 oil on a panel.  This little grocery is now history. It was an iconic little store in it's day and all the locals kept it going, but now all that is left is mostly just a memory of that. I was glad to make a painting of it in its prime.

Stopping By

Posted on Updated on

This is an 11 x 14 oil on a panel. It's around the area where I live. I've had the reference for a long time and even painted a smaller version, but it was when I cropped the reference close up that I fell in love with the scene. To me, it depicted a friend stopping by for a visit - a stranger would have parked in the lane.

Just Us Chickens

This is an 11 x 14 oil on a panel. I was attracted to the lovely colors I saw in the barn. The chickens added some life and helped with the story.
