Cloud Study - 6x6

The power was out one day so I painted this little cloud study from my studio window.  Now up for auction with a very low starting bid of $10!

Lemons and Circles - 6x6

I'm selling out of these still lifes faster than I can post them! No complaints here though, I love to paint them.

Lemons on Purple - 6x6

Wanted to paint some lemons, which later turned out to be very helpful when I got a sore throat.  Hot water with lemon and honey is more soothing than I thought :)

Carpinteria Cliffs - 6x12

I played with the surface a little before painting this piece.  I like the feeling of linen (because it's finer than canvas) but it's still a little too porous for my liking.  I prepped this one by applying a pretty thick coat of gesso with a palette knife. I really liked the result, maybe I'll try it with some old canvases I have lying around.

Afternoon Walk - 6x6

I'm really fond of how this one turned out.  I textured a few of my panels with extra gesso recently, I think it adds a little something extra to the final product.

Golden Light - 6x6

Carpinteria sure has an interesting mix of trees around.  I enjoyed how the light was playing on this one.
