Vino

The double shadows were interesting and I loved the colors in this one.


Soaking It Up

6 x 6 oil on panel

I tried to loosen up modeling her skin. I'm not sure I succeeded, but that was my intention. It reminds me of patchwork. 

She is enjoying the sun. Something foreign around here right now. 

I thought I would try an auction this time.

Pinot Noir - SOLD

6 x 6 oil on panel
SOLD

Pinot Noir is my preference these days!
I've been painting every day this week but I haven't always had something to post. I did take a handful of wine glass photos that I hope to sprinkle in paintings of among the others.

I'm still preparing for my first Art Festival that will be in early June. I've ordered a back wall from Graphic Display Systems. This seemed like the most inexpensive, but professional looking system to get started with. They will work with or without a canopy, which was important to me. I got them this week and am happy with how easy they are to set up. They are still a bit heavy for me... but I guess it's time to build some strength! I'll combine this setup with tables I already own, and a canopy I still need to get.

Pebble Beach Ninth Hole - SOLD

SOLD

I think it was four years ago I took this shot at Pebble Beach. Such an incredible view at the ninth hole. This golfer had such a classic silhouette. 


Smooth Sailing

8 x 10 oil on panel

This guy looks like he knows how to spend his time!
Floating along on Lake Michigan on a warm sunny day! Ahhh...

Nietzsche - SOLD

5 x 7 oil on panel
SOLD

"If you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you." 

When searching for a name for this one, I googled "long gaze" which seems to be what he is doing. I came up with this quote by Nietzsche. I like it!

I'm Louder Than You!

My first rooster painting and this guy seems to have a lot to say! He was a lot of fun to paint which explains why so many people paint them.
