Double Shot of Sunshine


6x6
oil on 1 1/2" deep stretched canvas

I love the rustic beauty of Texas, especially the wildflowers.  More practice with painting the light.  I am always amazed at how much life the light brings to a composition!  These Brown Eyed Susans are painted on gallery wrapped canvas.  There is no need for a frame.

Brown Eyed Susans are one of the many beautiful wildflowers of Texas.  They are as tough as nails to  survive the relentless summer heat.

Squeeze In


8x10
oil on 1 1/2" deep stretched canvas

The composition for this original oil painting of oranges was inspired by the green bowl.  I thought the color of the oranges complemented it so well, and I really like how it captures their reflections.  I picked up the bowl at one of those Southern Living house parties a long time ago.  At the time, I felt like I had to buy something, but now I've grown to love it!
