Blue Butterfly

Don't know the names of either the pale green flowers or the butterfly,
but I really liked both so I put them in a painting.
The butterfly has bluish, semi-transparent wings,
with black outlining which gives them a stained glass window look.

Decided to paint the butterfly in a smaller painting and
submit to DPW "Seeing Double" challenge.

Yellow Azaleas and the Old Wash House

Painted for DPW's "Yellow" challenge. I actually saw his scene
on a drive in the beautiful Oregon countryside.
A ramshackle old wash house with a very overgrown garden
with Azalea bushes growing over the roof.
Wet clothes hanging on the clothes lines.

One With Water and Air

Painted this for Dana Marie's Rendition Me This challenge "Canard".
We are to paint a 'rip-off' of the challenge painting,
similar but with our own spin on it.
I wanted to bring out the metaphysical environment
of this duck's life through the water, air and colors.

Geese in Flight

Besides mountains and valleys, high desert and coastlands,
another beautiful natural resource in Oregon is the 
bird sanctuaries. 
This was painted from a photo of the Klamath wetlands bird sanctuary,
which is host to many species of birds, who flock there in great numbers.
