WINTER SUNSHINE oil on panel, 4"x6"

Today is a beautiful day! It started out with a thick fog, but it lifted pretty fast. It lifted before I could get outside to paint, and there was just a little fog left in the distance when I painted this en plein air. I wanted to capture the cold, crisp morning with the warm sunshine.

RED PAJAMAS oil on canvas, 20"x16"

I've been working on this figurative painting and I think it's finished.

I also have my website up and almost finished. I still have the bio to add and some more paintings, but it's presentable. Check it out:

BEYOND THE SHADOWS oil on canvas, 24"x30"

I've been working on this landscape the past few days and I think I'm finished. I'm intrigued by the bright light beyond the trees. That's what caught my eye here. I did a small painting of this scene a while back and have been wanting to paint a larger one.

A MOTHER'S LOVE oil on canvas, 24"x20"

Here's what I painted today. I've been wanting to paint this picture I took about a year ago of my niece holding her baby. It's 31 degrees and it's nice to look out the window of my studio and not have to go out.

EVENING GRAPEFRUITS 8x10, oil on canvas on board

This is a plein air painting done in La Feria, Texas in the Rio Grande Valley on our recent visit with my in-laws. It was a beautiful day with sunshine and the temperature in the 60s.
