The Little Artist

This is a painting of my granddaughter Bailey from a photo taken 10 years ago. It's my largest oil painting to date - 30" x 30". I love doing portraits that show the person doing something rather than a mug shot.

The River Li Near Yangshou

A scene from along the River Li from Guilin to Yangshou. It was like we went back in time. Water buffalo and fishermen with cormorants fishing like they have done for hundreds of years.

A Walk in the Woods

A scene from a little stream bed close to home. Painting trees are a real challenge for me. So much green! I love all the textures though.

Scenes from China

"Girl with Baskets"
oil on linen       8" x 10"
Framed    $495

"Guilin Canal Boats"
pastel on paper     11.5" x 15.5"

We recently got home from a 2 week trip to China and I am now recovered from jet lag. I will be  recording scenes from our trip in oil and pastel. We toured 5 cities, Shanghai, Guilin, Zhouzhuang, Yangshou and Beijing. I have over 2000 photos to sort through. We covered a lot of territory and I didn't want to overlook anything that might be paintable. This was a trip of a lifetime. Lots more paintings to come.

"Little Beijing Shop"     7" x 9" on watercolor paper

Inspired by my fellow artists in China, I decided to try pen & ink with watercolor, which I haven't done  in a LOOONG time. Nice break from oils and pastels.

"Rainy Day in Montreal"

Scene from a recent trip to Montreal, Canada. So much charm. Some of the best food I have ever eaten. The historic district was so walkable - even in the rain. I couldn't resist the red umbrella to paint.
