This painting went along swimmingly until I got to the lace. Boy, what on earth was I thinking????? The pears, the glass bowl, all were loads of fun. Then I got to the lace and suddenly cleaning the attic seemed like a good idea. Moving firewood around, ah yes the world is full of alternate activities to the desperate. It is crocheted lace and probably more work to paint than it was to crochet, but since I don’t crochet, what do I know? Finally I could no longer stand its nagging and accusatory looks whenever I was in the studio. So it’s done! It is 20″x16″ and acrylic on canvas. SOLD


These two paintings were accepted into the 2012 Contemporary Masters Artistic Eden III show which opened this month. The show is held at the Pasadena Museum of History and celebrates life in the San Gabriel valley. I went down for the opening and was hugely impressed with the size and quality of the show. The show is running through July so if you are in the area get in to see it. Click here to see some of the art on display.

This new one took a ridiculous amount of time, mostly because I was catching up on a lot of non-art stuff at the same time. Nevertheless, it is finally done and I can get on with some smaller ones. I created this with a show this spring in mind. It is acrylic on canvas and measures 18″x36″. SOLD

This still life is the very first time I have used this great vintage tablecloth in a set up. I wanted to emphasize the San Gabriel Valley area so I will have to do another to get the rest in. I am submitting this piece into a regional themed show and finished it up just under the deadline. Sadly the cinnamon raisin roll was far too stale for consumption by the time its services as a model were over. This piece is acrylic on canvas and measures 20″x16″. SOLD. This image is available as a print on Imagekind

I photographed these leeks after finishing the library still life as they were still full of color and up for another painting before hitting the soup pot. This piece is acrylic on canvas and measures 10″x20″. SOLD

This is one of those paintings that came about in the produce aisle. I wasn’t really thinking about red pears but there they were. Beautiful. On sale. Irresistible. This painting is acrylic on canvas and measures 12″x9″.  SOLD.

Here’s a new one. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything and that’s because it’s been awhile since I’ve painted anything. As winter moves in I have a long list of jobs to get done before the snow flies. This small piece features a polished silver dish and some delicious red grapes I can now eat. It is 8″x6″, acrylic on canvas. SOLD

I was so close to finishing it last night but it was getting too dark in here. Ten straight days got it done. This piece is 18″x48″ acrylic on canvas and is a commission for the new Kern County library in Frazier Park and will be on permanent display there.

I had hoped to complete this today but it was not to be. Still, I am getting close. 

Do I really want to post this? I think after 3 days it’s far enough along to do so. It is a commission for the new Kern Co library and measures 18″x48″. I’m aiming at getting it completed within a week and it is looking likely I’ll make it. It’s acrylic on canvas and the largest of this sort of painting I’ve tackled yet.
