acrylic on panel

This is my submission for this week's DailyPaintworks challenge. I can't decide if its more difficult to paint rose petals!

Brown Horse

This is another painting that is part of the "Tiny" show at Studio Gallery. I love painting back lit subjects. Thanks to my niece Aimee for supplying the reference.

Studio Models

acrylic on cradled panel


I study with 3 great artists on a fairly consistent basis. Stanley Goldstein almost every Monday night. Tim Horn once a month for critiques and at least once a year with Peggi Kroll Roberts. Perhaps you see Peggi's influence here. Well, at least you see her daughter Ali in the forefront.
I brought this little painting into our critique session this past Monday. I won't state what I thought I needed to correct but it was suggested by Tim to do this as a larger work. I think I will!

If you are interested, I have 2016 desk calendars for sale. You can email me,  or go to my DailyPaintworks page to purchase for $10.

Side Tie Reflection

acrylic on cradled panel

When I come home, I walk down a ramp and this is what I see to my left. I don't think I truly captured the sense of light and reflection that captured me but its my "go" at it.
If you are in San Francisco this weekend, come by the Studio Gallery for the "TINY SHOW" reception, 1pm to 6pm.  Everything is 7x7 or smaller. There is a "HUGE" counterpart as well.

Green Sailboat

acrylic on cradled panel

I am situated right across from the fuel dock. I see boats go in and out all the time. Sometimes I see a painting coming my way.

Front Yard Roses

acrylic on 1.5" cradled panel

If you are a friend of mine, then you know I am annoying! Whenever someone tells me they are traveling or going to a function, I don't say "Have a good time!", I say "Take pictures!" My friend Kristie is always on the lookout for subject matter for me. She recently took this shot in her neighborhood. Apparently, she takes her assignment seriously! Thank you Kristie!
