Sunset Wall - 5x7

We got home late last night from our Denver trip.  Little breaks like that always make me so excited to get back to painting.  Hopefully I'll paint some great stuff this week!

Milpas Tree - 5x7

I stumbled across this view while I was at Trader Joe's the other day.  I love when the setting sun makes even mundane street corners suddenly luminous.

Sunny Beach - 5x7

This is very much the opposite of how it looks outside today.

Purple Moment - 5x7

I love this brief time everyday, right before it gets completely dark, and everything seems to glow in pinks and purples.

Another shot of this harbor dog.  I had to try painting his face right?

Harbor Dog - 6x6

I've never painted a dog before (and I really don't have plans to make this an ongoing thing), but I liked how the light was hitting this guy, so I thought I would give it a whirl.

Potsdam Trees - 5x7

I haven't posted in a few days.  Not because I haven't been painting, but because I've been too busy painting to get around to photographing the finished ones.

Empty Beach Morning - 8x10

I love how empty and peaceful the beach is early in the morning, just after the sun comes up.

Beach Rain - 6x12

I loved painting this piece, it came easily and I loved just letting myself be playful with it.

Beach Palms Sunset - 6x6

I can't believe it's January, I wore a tank top today and I think I got sunburned while riding my bike this afternoon.  Crazy.

Biltmore Wall II - 6x6

I had another go at this group, I felt rushed while I was painting it though, so I'm not as happy as I was with the first one.  However there are certain parts of it that I really like.
