Adding to my wino series.  Trying to stay loose and play with color..my photo turned out a bit light unfortunately but it still comes across ok.  I am itching to paint some florals but I haven't found a good place to buy cut flowers at a good price around here...and spring is still a ways away. 
In other news, my floral paintings are marked 1/2 off until Feb. 14 on my Etsy site.

Southernmost

5x7 oil on panel $55
This gate is at the southernmost tip of Key West Florida. I really love the hard black straight lines of the gate against the cloudy sky and water.

Pink house

6x6 oil on panel
sold
This is another from my photos taken in Key West.  I loved the color palette on the island.  Most of the buildings and houses are white or pastel colors..all with metal roofs by the way because of those crazy hurricanes that like to swing through there occasionally.

White house

5x7 oil on panel $55
I recently took a trip to Key West with my best friend and got very inspired by the architecture, colors and hot weather..oh, and a few margaritas.  I took a lot of reference photos and this is the first painting from them.  This cold weather is perfect for painting island life..the memories are keeping my warm.

Through the trees

6x6 oil on panel $60
This is another from the photos I took this past fall.  I really love painting the little bits of sky through the leaves..those negative spaces are my favorite.  Loving the color too, especially now when everything here in Indiana is mostly brown and white.

Post holidays

6x6 oil on panel
Finally back to a regular schedule.  Now that the holidays and snow storm are over, for now, I can get back to work.  This painting is a recent commission done for a family in North Carolina, I love her wispy ears.
