This is Tait, a neighbor boy on our street.  He loves to ride his bike over to play with my daughter.  I painted his brother, Reid a while back...sweet little guys.

Green bucket

5x7 oil on paper
I always love watching kids on the beach, they can entertain themselves for hours playing with sand and water.  I remember how much I loved it as a kid..and still do, especially with my daughter.

Lake view

4x4 oil on panel
This was one of the views from the window in my lakeside studio.  Ok, it is not really my studio, but I temporarily used it as such last week while on vacation.  The house we rented was high on a bluff overlooking the lake in Grand Haven Michigan....beautiful.

Picked these last night with my daughter on a walk through the neighborhood.  Experimenting with color and edges is fun stuff, especially with many great colors and shapes to work with..isn't nature awesome?

Sun bouquet

Enjoying painting flowers lately.  Working out some challenges for myself, trying to stay loose with my brushwork.  Lots of subject matter around the neighborhood for me to pick from.
