Lake House Nocturne

" This was painted for a DPW challenge - 'A view from a cabin window'.
  on a lake with a dock and boat. 
There are wolves in the area, and their song is often heard at night. 
The light in the forest is often 'green' 
and it was this special glow that I wanted to achieve."

Thoughts of Spring

A branch holds a lovely butter fly 
among its delicate purple blossoms. 
Painted using the limited colors of the Zorn palette, 
of cadmium red, ivory black, yellow ochre and titanium white.

Season's Greetings

Used the Zorn palette of  Cad. red, 
yellow ochre, ivory black and titanium white, 
to paint this winter scene.
I live in a rural area
and saw this lady getting or sending her mail
and knew I wanted to paint her 
and her iron mailbox.
