"Jennifer Awaits"

24"x20" Original Oil on Canvas

Jennifer is a friend whom I always enjoy painting and whose company is always a delight. She was getting up from a 20-minute pose to take a break when she looked up at me like this - I shrieked, "Hold that pose!!!" and painted her just as she sat. Sorry, Jennifer, no break.

I love these unusual formats on which to paint. Makes for an interesting composition.

"Sun-Filled Sill" sold

10"x8" Oil on Linen
Again, we opted to stay indoors to paint a still-life rather than brave the cold (I know, we're pathetic! 40 degrees and breezy is just too much to bear).
All in all, it was a fun day to paint!

"Sunflower Blooming"

8"x10" Oil on Linen
It was COLD outside despite the beautiful clear sunny sky. . . our painting group opted to stay indoors and paint this still-life of sunflowers.
This is actually the second of two that I painted today.

"Country Morning" & "Country Morning II"

"Country Morning II" is sold (it's the top painting)
I wanted to pull back a little bit from the original point of view and re-adjust the still-life on the format again. So I ended up with two!

"Middle & Center Street" - SOLD

SOLD Ah, to be back with the painting group again! What a boost to share the energy of such talented painters!
Noticably, each were all silently painting with great concentration and one could feel the synchronicity so strong between us all!
I've missed you all so much! Enjoyed meeting you too, Janie!
