Little Applegate Oak 8×6″ oil on canvas $96

The weather for the last few days has been bright and sunny – the typical February Tease. We have been eating lunch out on our deck and reveling in the warmth. I makes me want to get in the garden but we often have frost in April so I have learned to be patient. Maybe I’ll plant some peas next week. It’s such a joy to be outside and we live in such a beautiful place that I yearn to be a good landscape painter. It’s hard to do well, but maybe with this new “daily” painting routine I will paint plein air more often and get better at it. The above was an attempt to catch a wonderful old oak in it’s full glory last fall.

We will be away for a couple of days, so I will post again on Monday.

“Amaryllis” 6 x8 oil on canvas SOLD This amazing amaryllis opened about a week ago and every day I have wanted to paint it. Nice of it to be so patient; cut flowers loose their flush just a couple of hours after you bring them in. I really liked the back-lighting from the window and […]

“Me at 30” 6×8 oil on canvas $96 All this talk about weddings has got me thinking back to what I was doing when I was my daughter’s age. This summer I cleared out an old trunk and found some photos, including the one from which I did this painting. I think I was thirty […]

Last night we went into Ashland to meet friends for Thai food and a poetry reading by Robert Pinsky which was very entertaining and thought provoking. I remembered to take my pocket sketch book and did a little pen drawing of the women sitting in front of us while we waited for the program to […]

We are usually lucky to get one or two snowfalls a year, here in Southern Oregon, but this year the snow has come and gone and come and gone several times. When there’s more than an inch or two we don’t even try to get down our driveway which is depicted in this painting, which […]
