VALENTINE KISSES 6x6, oil on board

I was inspired by Dar Presto's "kisses" paintings and just had to paint kisses. A friend of my mother's brought her a bag of candy which included these beautifully wrapped Hershey kisses--thus my painting. The same friend also brought red roses--maybe another painting???

A NEW DAY oil on board, 4x6

2/8/09 I painted this from a photo I took a few weeks ago. I liked the way the trees were backlighted with shadows coming forward.

PYRACANTHA oil on board, 6x8
