Luscious Apple - sold


It's been a while since I have painted an apple. Just wanted to paint this beautiful apple that came from one of our local farms.
In painting this one, I really enjoyed leaving a little background showing through, and doing my best to make this apple glow.

Sunny Morning at Ground Coffee Shop

Ground Coffee Shop :: 6"x6" :: oil on archival panel :: unframed
Plein Air Painting in downtown Hood River, Oregon. This place is an institution in Hood River. It's been a coffee shop of some sort forever I think. A few remodels and owners later, it's now known as "Ground Coffee Shop". It's a complex scene, so I did a sketch with pen and ink before I did the painting. The car moved just when I got out the paints!

Alive with Pink! - not available


Painting in a Gardening Store in Hood River, OR. Beautiful Rhododendrons. I'm not sure, but I think this rhododendron is called Marie Forte. It was a spectacular day to paint at Good News Gardening this morning, with the other plein air painters. Not too much wind this morning, and beautifully sunny.

These flowers yelled at me exuberantly in the store, "buy me! paint me!" so I had to… Happy Mother's Day to all mothers in the universe.
