Green Shadows and Zorn Palette Portraits

"Green Shadows"
10 x 10 inches, oil on panel
$400
Sold


It's been awhile since I've painted my glass float collection, but I'm back in love! You can see a couple more new float paintings on Instagram.

Also - I'm really excited for my newest video workshop! It's being released tomorrow, August 5th, and I'm super proud of it. Are you interested in exploring the Zorn palette? (Or, as I like to call it, "training wheels for flesh tones?") Join me!

Lemon Water and Silver

"Lemon Water and Silver"
9 x 12 inches, oil on panel
$400

I get asked all the time if I eat the things I paint in my still lifes. The answer is - not always. Sometimes I try to get other people to eat them! But I drank every drop of this lemon water, along with batches made from those lemons lurking in the bowl. A favorite hot weather drink, for sure!

Radishes

"Radishes"
9 x 12 inches, oil on canvas
$400

We've been getting a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box every two weeks, and it's fantastic! These ravishing radishes stole the show last time. Summer cooking has been great - in fact, all cooking has been great since quarantine. I haven't cooked this much in years, literally.

Distance

"Distance"
10 x 10 inches, oil on canvas on panel


This year has not been what I expected.  If you've been feeling stuck, blocked, sluggish, or lost your creative motivation, know that you're not alone. I'm slowly returning to a semblance of normal - beginning to teach in-person while still teaching online, and planning to spend July and August doing a lot of painting. 

I'm grateful for the beautiful things that have come into my life this year, and for the perspective that all of this change/uncertainty has brought me. Warm wishes to you, thank you for reading.

Shelter

"Shelter"
9 x 12 inches, oil on canvas on panel

....Or should I say, "Shell-ter?" 

At least I didn't say shelter in place. 

Hope you are all well!

Green Juice

"Green Juice"
8 x 8 inches, oil on canvas
$300

I fell in love-at-first-sight with this little green guy at a workshop in Florida last week, and my hosts graciously gave it to me! That kind of thing actually happens pretty often - being a still life painter does tend to create object-obsession - and simple gifts (or long-tern loans) tend to turn into painting subjects I can mine for months - if not years!

Flowering Quince

"Flowering Quince"
10 x 10 inches, oil on canvas on panel
$400

February is one of my favorite months to be in Oregon - which I still marvel at, since it was the WORST month of winter where I grew up in the midwest. Things are beginning to bloom everywhere - including this Quince, or Chaenomeles, if you want to get technical about it. ;)

It's pseudo-spring in Oregon, and things are starting to bloom. I spotted this bush breaking out in blooms on my running route, and went back later in the day with scissors!
