"House Shopping"

"House Shopping" is a revised painting.  I originally painted this for the cover of a children's book.  It had a young girl and her pets on the roof.  I do prefer it with the bears as I'd like to have this house in my backyard and it would be fun to have bears visit.

Apple juicing day!

The apples are a month late this year as all of our garden was.  The nice thing about it is the bees did not attend the party.  It's usually a challenge to keep the drunk little critters out of the juice.  This is the front of our property, in the orchard.  What a beautiful day it was. A total of 67 gallons were pressed.

Princess Woo Woo's Problem

Princess Woo Woo (in the blue sweater) has begun a romance with Mr. Fluffy Kitty Boy.  This, understandably, has created tension in the Chihuahua community.  It seems not only humans have problems with diversity. I'm contemplating turning this into a series so I can see how it plays out with this star-crossed couple.  As you can see Princess Woo Woo is depressed that her friends and relatives just don't get that this is not just puppy love but the real thing.  Mr. Fluffy Kitty Boy is worried that he might have to sink a couple of claws in to make a point. Sold

A Color-filled Scene

I love the purples in particular in this painting.  I painted this scene originally plein aire in my own neighborhood.  I live in the country outside of Winlock, Washington.  It was my first try at plein aire and I was pretty clueless.  The painting sat around for a couple of years before I started a series of impressionistic and colorful landscapes.  I felt this painting had enough merit to be transformed and I'm happy I did because this is one of my favorites. It's 8"X10" in oil and painted on gessoed hardboard.  Check out my ebay auction.
