Fog, Beach, Seattle

I stood in the rain, actually mist and fog working on this painting. After getting home I realized with just a touch of a bright color, you add a little life. So, when you're out on a misty day with little color, look for those little patches of brightness. It will make your day. Right Christine?
I'll wait to hear your thoughts on the matter.

Blue Bowl

This little painting is 6x6 painted in oil on linen. I'm trying to paint with less brush strokes and being fussy in my work. Painting is so much like life, don't you feel a sense of freedom when everything is uncluttered? It's probably a polyanna approach also but that's what artists are all about, seeing the beauty. So, how's life treating you? Let me know and yes, I'm interested.

Could Rain

I thought today would be a good day to post "Could Rain." The clouds seemed to promise rain and finally, it's late afternoon and the showers are here. I'm working on my small paintings to try less is more so, while we experience weather outside, I'll just stay warm and dry inside and continue to experiment with paints and brushes. What are you doing?

Yellow Pepper

This is the year I try new things and get out of my comfort zone. I've been working with lighter colors although in this photo it doesn't come across that way. I am also using a new camera setup so eventually, all of these things will come together. Bear with me in this process. So, what are you doing? Please drop a line and let me know.
