Winter again.

6x6" oil on prepared card stock
This wintery painting was part of my summer 2012 show. She was a bit out of place on Cape Cod in August, but in December she fits right in.

Big Sweetie

oil on Linen   22"x24"   2010

I usually paint on panel, but this one is on stretched linen.
I loved painting this one - It was fun to swap my go-to regular old surface for the linen, and it's larger than I usually paint too (partly how she got her name "big sweetie")  The dark outline around the figure was a last minute choice and I love it.

this piece was in a museum show in 1995 in Riverside, California "Angeli"
and then it sold to a good friend in Sweden.  I've always loved this one.

Uncle Arthur

18 x 24" oil on panel on decorative paper.  2010

This painting hangs in my dining room and I can just feel Arthur's wonderful sense of humor radiating out of the painting.  Looks like he's thinking about his next zinger.

Ediths mom

I painted this way back in the mid 1990's.  (wow- I've been doing this a long time)
I painted this in Sweden where I worked and lived for a while after undergrad.
I loved it there.

Not everbody likes dogs

6x6" oil on wood block. 
This is based on my grandmothers neighbor, Mrs Murphy, she probably actually does like dogs but she looks a little grumpy and that's what came to me.
