Foggy Morning

8"x 10"             oil

With this painting I was challenging myself to keep the colors very muted to capture the lifting morning fog against the cliffs.  The sun only illuminated some of the newly greened grasses on the hillside and the highlights on the ocean. It made my day when a lovely couple from Reno who were visiting our coastal area bought it to remember their trip. Thank you, Janet and James!


Marigolds and Oranges

7"x 5"            oil

I really enjoyed painting this still life. I love the contrast between the cobalt blue vase and the oranges and yellows of the fruit and flowers. A friend (and collector of my work) loved this piece too and bought it! Thank you, Cathy!
