"Color World"

3 x 11"
oil on masonite

Happy Spring to you - although I have a great appreciation for the soft, grayish tones of winter, I found myself eager to place something colorful in front of me and play with my paints. I've been nothing short of brain-dead after finishing up 18 new pieces and getting them to the galleries - I've even done my spring cleaning, tax returns and whatever else I've neglected since November. Time to get back into the groove.


This painting is a quick, painterly, cheerful portrait of the flower before me, sitting in my favorite POM glass.

This is great. It's 35 and snowing here in Dallas.

Gosh, Karin. I love the shape of the canvas here. These would make a great grouping in a home with a nice hallway. Nice colors and a fun piece that makes me long for the spring weather to make a reappearance (we have had rain mixed with snow for two days now).
