We are all sending positive messages to our long time colleague at work while she undergoes cancer treatment. Her favorite flower is the purple iris. These are for you Carmen.

Sunny Rose

acrylic on panel

This is my submission to this week's the "Artist's Choice Challenge" on DPW. The objective is to paint something that is a challenge for the artist. I have many but I would have to say the values and subtleties of color with roses are always a challenge.

My niece Aimee has always been generous with her photographic skills and her kids! Aimee is truly creative. We collaborated on a children's book this last year; "My FIFO Daddy" . It is geared toward families who have parents that "fly in and fly out" to remote mining posts in Australia.

You can see some of Aimee's photography by clicking here.

I am hosting the weekly challenge on dailypaintworks.com.

Cows

sold

Sometimes when I am working on a larger painting that is taking time, I have to take a break and paint something small, fast and furious. I loved the light and dark pattern the reference photo had (morgueFile.com).

This is one of my latest commissions. I love painting eyes and capturing or trying to capture the reflection. It is like frosting on a cake!

Happy 4th of July!
