New work!

The past couple of weeks I have been working on two paintings that couldn't be more different from one another.  One is glass, with bright colors and hard edges and the other is a flower with soft whites and soft edges.  I have really enjoyed going back and forth between them. 
A Rose By Any Other Name.. 36" x 48"  oil on canvas

While roses are not my favorite flower, I couldn't resist the challenge of the warm shadows and cooler highlights. 

Minding My B's and Q's 48" x 60" oil on canvas
The jars introduce my new flea market find!  The jar is a Quick Seal and I loved painting that big Q for a change!!

Both paintings will probably head south with me in October.
