 "Searching for Spring" 
36 x 11 1/2,  landscape, oil on gesso board.  
 A painting I made up just having a great time slapping oil paint on gesso board, pushing it around, using a 3 inch brush, a 1 inch brush and a 1/2 inch brush. Creating out of a sense of freedom, standing back, estimating where to put the next strokes, and loving the fresh greens, enjoying the whole process! I may not be finished either. What do you think?
"Meilyn",  watercolor,  20 x 16 on Arches 140 lb.
Meilyn, one of my precious granddaughters is ,painted in basically ultramarine blue and burnt sienna .  From a photo taken by by my daughter Kristi about 12 years ago. We were in Wyoming for a family get together.

Sunset Bunny

oil on gesso board   8 x 10   $135.00 SOLD

Bunnies are abundant this year.  They are beautiful and they sure do love my plants, as do the deer.  I keep planting and trying to have some color, but flowers and berries and lettuces have their attention.
Watch for them on the road, especially at sunset.

Eggs, Checks, and Butterfly

  14" x 18"  watercolor   $675.00 framed

An old fashioned kitchen or farmhouse painting.  Beginning with a still life class involving shadows, white objects and a darkened background with a checkered cloth, this was a challenging subject.  The students made it through a difficult class and learned to make values and shapes an 
important part of their work.  Showing now at Arati Artists Gallery, 2425 W. Colorado Ave. in Old Colorado City, Colorado Springs, CO.
