Figure studies at Gabriel’s

The Roses were a good warm-up; this week I’m on to the painting for my niece. I’m doing this from a photo which I will not post in its original form because it was taken about 8 yrs ago and one of my grand-nephews is not so happy about anyone seeing this image of him […]

“The Wonders” 9 x 12 oil on canvas panel  $125 This painting was for another challenge on Different Strokes for Different Folks. I added the child, and her wonder at the light making a great wheel on the floor, and accentuated the preoccupation of the other family members with the wonder of their i-phones. Even […]

Magical Miracle

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

” Magical Miracle” 12 x12″ oil on canvas $150 A couple of months ago I was asked to participate in the Annual Women’s Invitational at Rogue Community College. The theme was Abracadabra.
