California Cuties (Clementines)

16 x 20 Oil

This is the first painting completed in my new studio. This was a painting of a still life I had set up and photographed. I had done a smaller painting from the same set up in the past, but I painted the plate blue and white.

Saturday Morning on Las Olas 10 X 8 Oil

This little plein air work was painted early on a Saturday morning behind the shops on Las Olas. Although I just finished a correction on it recently, it was painted last year. Looking at it now, makes me eager to paint en plein air again soon.

Still Life with Pear

Today is a red letter day....I am painting again! This painting may not be complete. I will take a fresh look tomorrow. I haven't decided what to do with the background, if anything. It sure feels good to be back at this again. After teaching a session of summer school, a new job teaching Art this year, and teaching two After School Art classes each week I have been too busy to paint! I'm gearing up for painting over spring break in my new studio.
