Party In The Park


 Had a great time helping kids paint river rocks at the Curry Arts booth at the annual (except 2 year hiatus due to covid) Party In The Park, July 9.   Non-profit organizations had booths where kids could play games, do art projects, get their face painted, do an obstacle course, etc. The weather was great, lunch was provided for the kids and their families at no charge and everyone had a good time. 6x12 oil on panel

The Valerie J


 Painted at Brookings Port.  The midday lighting was not real interesting and it took me a while to spot this little orange boat.  Loved the contrast of colors and reflection in the water!  I did give her a clipper bow for a more interesting profile.  Artistic license.  6x8 oil

Sunflowers


 A friend gave me these lovely flowers and pitcher vase.  I had to paint them to preserve their beauty!   9x12 oil

Grey, Calm, Cape Sebastian


 Painted Looking towards Cape Sebastian.  The water was glassy, like my eyes.  Not a breadth of wind, no white caps.  The water was a really cool color.  11x14 oil

Noah's Ark


 Painted in Brookings Port.  It was a cold, overcast morning.  8x8 Oil

Splender In The Grass


 Painted Hank in the pasture today.  The grasses were blooming purple.  11x14 oil

Reaching For The Sky


 From a visit to Stout Grove, part of Jedediah State Park just across the Oregon boarder into California.  These redwoods are magnificent.  Tried to capture their splendor.  12x6 Oil
