Bike Time

Click Here To Buy It Now - Sold, oil on gesso board, 6x6 inches

I was following this guy on one of my early morning walks in California last summer.  The light was so great, the colors, the dog; I couldn't have asked for better subject matter.  This is another painting where I've been experimenting with different size and styles of brushes and also that scribbly/scratchy technique which is very fun.

Lady In Blue

Click Here To Buy It Now - $200, oil on gesso board, 8x10 inches

I photographed these ladies at a local art festival last summer.  I take a lot of photos in hopes of using a few for paintings, it always feels like Christmas when I load my photos and find one that inspires me like this one did.  These ladies were actually in the background and I cropped everything else out.  I also started experimenting with new painting techniques learned in a workshop this past winter and I'm having fun with scribbly scratchy brush work.

I need to note that the bright foreground sidewalk color is a tad more yellow than the photo shows but this was the best I could adjust the colors.
