"Red Tulips And Calico"

6"x8" Oil on Raymar panel

This little gem was a bit time consuming with the extra detail in the calico cloth.   Just the same,  I will use this calico fabric in future paintings as I enjoy a challenge sometimes.  I have several more reference photos of still life set ups I photographed using this cloth.   This set up just appealed to me to try to paint first.

"Simple Elegance"

6"x8" oil on linen Raymar panel
I seem to be concentrating on flowers lately and loving every moment of painting them.  Lilies are quite elegant and I shall paint more lilies in the near future.

"Special Vase"

6"x8" Oil on Linen Raymar Panel
$300   Sold

Painting the various colors reflected in this vase was a challenge, especially since it is a miniature painting.   I might use this as a study to paint a larger painting in the future in an effort to more fully capture the colors in the vase.  

Thank you for viewing my work and please feel free to comment here or contact me 808.536.0650   or
