This is a 12 x 16 inch oil painting inspired by my garden of Hollyhock. I have scarlet, lilac, pink, black, pale pink and various shades in between.
Speaking of Hollyhock, I just joined a painting group called Let’s Paint New Mexico (Thank you John French). I was excited to see that Hollyhock are on the menu. They grow like weeds around here.
This 16 x 20 inch palette knife oil painting was inspired by a camping trip to Sumner Lake. While we fished, I watched the skies as they filled with trails of who knows what. There were lots of cactus. My dog, Petey, seemed to find all of them. We spent some time pulling cactus quills out of his feet. The cactus were not in bloom quite yet but I needed something to represent danger. My brother in law suggested drops of blood on the quills. Blood isn’t really my style. Red flowers however, are.
This is a painting I did several weeks ago to match another I had done for my sister.
This is an 11 x 14 inch floral oil painting in the complementary colors of red and green. I really like watching the colors change during the day as different light hits the painting.
