New Shoes

Last Christmas we gave our granddaughter, Nora, a dress from Paris. We included a sweater, beret, and red patent leather shoes to complete the outfit. She liked the new clothes, but she loved the "gorgeous" red shoes - a girl after my own heart!

Planting Season

Another scene from our trip to Pleasant Hill. The surrounding fields are newly planted and spring green is beginning to replace the gold/brown colors of winter.

View From Wheeler Road


Patti McNutt, Victoria Biedron (fellow DPW painters), and I drove down to the Pleasant Hill area this morning to do a little plein air painting. Patti had previously spotted this hillside with the rocky outcropping, and suggested that it would be a good spot to paint - and it was sublime! The day was perfect - good weather, good scenery, good company. Isn't that what it's all about?

Room Enough For Five

This is the same tulip set up that I used for a previous painting. This time I painted the background in low key rather than high key. It's interesting to see how the mood of the painting changes when the values change.

Hangin' Out

So many tulips, so little time.
