                                                         5" x 7" Acrylic on Raymar panel

This was a fun painting, but sometimes it is hard to tell when a painting is finished and that was the case with  this miniature painting.    Perhaps I will do another lemonade painting soon, and maybe one of ice tea as well.    Hope you enjoy!   Remember "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade"!

Sunflower Sunshine Duo

                                                          5" x 7" Acrylic on Raymar panel

I am beginning a new series of miniatures that are a little less detailed than my previous work on this blog.   The subject matter will be fruit, flowers, vegetables, and anything else that strikes my fancy to put on panel or canvas.   For the most part they will be on Raymar quality art panels or Ampersand gessobord.  

I intend to have a great time painting these more expressive and less detailed works.   This was the first time in a long time for me to paint sunflowers and I had such a blast I want to paint more sunflowers immediately!   However, a couple of other still life are on the easel right now instead.   Hopefully will be posting one of them in a day or two.   

Shipping is free within the USA and $14 internationally.     Thank you for stopping by and look forward to hearing from you.

"SLC Landscape With Quail"

9"x12" Acrylic on watercolor paper

This scene is also in the suburbs of Salt Lake City.  There were abundant quail in the area that day.  This was very near the area shown in this past Friday's post.   Again, for some reason I applied the paint very thickly as shown in the close-up below.

Not sure why I went through this stage of thick applications of paint.  Regardless, it will be necessary to mat and frame this painting under glass.   For further information, please feel free to contact me at  or 808.536.0650

Thank you for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you.   Please feel free to leave any comments here .    As always, shipping is free within the USA.

"Stellar Jay And Iris Garden"

                                                       9"x12" Acrylic on watercolor paper

This painting is of a suburb in Salt Lake City, Utah, and the garden is to the left of the owner's home nearby.   I added the Stellar Jay just for fun and for interest.

This is a close-up shot of the painting so you can see - for whatever reason- I applied the paint rather thickly on the paper.   It will still have to be matted and framed under glass like a regular watercolor.

Shipping is free within the USA.   Other countries, shipping cost will be $14.00
