"Alps Surrounding Engleberg, Switzerland"
Oil on Canvas 30 x 80 cm. Private Collection
This is one of the most enjoyable commissions I have ever experienced! Of course, the subject matter is magical and majestic. My friends were open to and very accepting, even enthusiastic about whatever my interpretation might be. They love color and they love this place. It was joy every minute to create it.
am sure, if given time, I would change some aspects about it. I think one of the lessons I am learning from painting small canvases often, then posting them immediately is that it is better for me, now, to do a work and then move on, letting it be as it came.

"October Roses"
Oil on Canvas Panel 11"x14" Sold
This is the latest in the season I have seen roses still viable in Idaho! I think it is because I love to paint using them and have had no time until now. The turquoise Chinese teapot was the container which would hold the short stems. I really like the color composition which results.

This is the 1st time I have painted a single apple.
I picked it.
I painted it.
I ate it.

"City of Rocks from Circle Creek Overlook with Penstemon, Wild Rose, Sego Lily, Red Paintbrush, Orange Globe Mallow, Sage Brush and Pinon Pine"
Oil on Canvas Panel 24"x48"
Finishing this painting kept me working all summer amidst guests and a few other projects. I was able to finish it and get it framed before my painting trip to Switzerland, but I did not get it photographed (I seem to be suffering from this as a chronic disorder...). I got it today!
