Of love

6x6 oil on panel

Really having fun with the combination of hard straight lines with the loosely painted flowers.  Makes an interesting composition.  I need to play with more negative space and different patterns..and maybe patterns that are more hidden in some areas..Oh so much to learn.

Open spaces

5x7 oil on panel

Left lots of negative space in this one.  I wanted the feeling of open air and room to breathe.  Again, playing with the stripes in the background.  I am liking them so far, but need to play more with the lines fading in and out of focus.

Latest article

6x6 oil on paper
This is Ellery, a sweet girl I painted a while ago.  I am posting her to go along with my latest article on emptyeasel about having fun with portrait painting.  The silly ones are always the best in my opinion.

Late blooms

5x7 oil on panel

The farmer's market has the best selection of cut flowers this time of year..unfortunately it doesn't last too long.  I am experimenting with my backgrounds.  I am playing with simple patterns to add more interest.  I like how the hard lines contrast the soft edges of the flowers..we will see where it takes me.
