"Lovely Lilacs" - purchase infooriginal acrylic on gessoed panel10" x 8" x 3/4"
I know it's really spring when the lilacs are blooming! I want to fill my arms with
the scented boughs, and revel in their delightful fragrance.
this painting has black painted sides, for a dramatic contrast to the painting. Palette knife technique adds rich texture to the subtle colors of the paint. This painting would be lovely on a shelf, as well as on the wall - a reminder to keep spring in your heart all year long!

|"Rising Moon, February" - purchase info|
Original acrylic on canvas, 6" x 12", framed
A recent plein air painting, started on location and then finished in the studio.
I love the way the moon comes up on a frosty evening
- it cooled off fast when the sun started going down.

I've been longing to get outside for a little plein air painting,
and yesterday was too nice a day to pass up!
Up on Mesa Rd., there's a tiny little piece of Open Space,
a beautiful, dry wild landscape.
with gorgeous views of the Peak.
Even though it was only 35 degrees out, I was in the sun and layered up -
long underwear, painting shirt, fleece vest, fleece jacket - so I was toasty!
It's been a long time since I painted with gloves on though.
The thin magic gloves work well.

I still haven't mastered the selfie, but I'm working on it !

The amber light of a gentle sunset illuminates the sky above an autumn hillside.
I am renewing my acquaintance with this paletter of colors - one of my favorites.
