Pink Tulips in a Creamer



With Spring upon us and flowers filling the stores
I couldn't resist these pretty pink tulips.
I placed them in a lovely white porcelain cream pitcher.

Young Scissortail



This young Scissortail rests on a branch
in a contorted crabapple bush,
filled with pink blossoms
 against a bright blue spring sky.

Promise of Spring



The snowy white blossoms of our Asian pear tree
hold the promise of the golden fruit to come this summer.
These blossoms reveal the many 'shades of  white'.
Painted with palette knife and brush,
for DPW's "Mostly White" challenge.

Brothers



Painted for DPW's "Paint your friend or relative" challenge.
These are my three grandson's.
I compiled a selection of photos from their Zoo trip,
 to make this scene.
I am happy with the resemblances.

Street Cafe



I found this scene of interest to paint. Are these people friends or strangers.
Because they all seemed to be absorbed in their own pursuits.
The cute little dog was the only one who noticed me,
in fact he never took his eyes off me
as I laid down a quick plein air sketch to finish in the studio.
