'Square Spot'
Original Oil
5" x 7"
Let's play 'Have You Ever'.  Have you ever painted a spotted dog?  YES and what fun, especially this soulful little fellow clutching his very own puppy.  For even more of a hoot, I added all-over squares. 
I have been off on some adventures.  Recently, I have come home to painting.

"If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint." 
Edward Hopper
Sometimes a photograph or words just aren't enough.  Your first home is just special.
This little house has been replaced by something much larger and now its owners wanted it remembered in paint.
 I so enjoyed painting this cozy little place and its trees.
Why do we always think bigger will be better?

'The Girls'
Oil On Canvas
11" x 14"
Robert Henri said, "paint the flying spirit of the bird rather than its feathers."
Prior to painting these young ladies, I had met two of them some years ago only for a brief moment; the third not at all. However, by the end of the painting, I  felt as if I knew them.  It was as if I could feel their personalities through my brush.
Speaking of the feathers on a bird, I have discovered that I really enjoy painting fabric patterns.
