I brought home some yellow tulips the other day, and couldn’t resist painting them.
I spent a couple of weeks in Vancouver, and loved it (especially the good coffee and riding the SkyTrain). Here’s a painting based on a few photos I took of one of the beaches there.
Because I sold my “Faith” painting awhile back, I decided to repaint it, with a slightly different emphasis. Here is Faith 2: “Faith 2”, oil, 16 X 20, canvas wrap.
This week I set up a still life with some praise instruments from my church. I decided to use a limited palette, with warm tones for a more intimate feeling. This is the final painting. “Praise” original oil, 16 X 20.
I love blue jays, so couldn’t resist painting this one. The colors scanned brighter blue than in my original oil painting (I am still learning about color adjusting), but this shows the overall effect. I hope you enjoy him!

I have a special friend who has a birthday coming up, so I painted a picture of one of her favorite themes. It’s in oils. The original is a bit warmer, this is the best the photo shows.
I have a good friend who also likes to paint, and she created a combination oil and acrylic painting that represents this season of Teshuvah (repentance) in the Jewish calendar. Here’s the result. I really love this, and hope that you enjoy it as well!
All of my life, I have loved horses. when I worked on a horse ranch in Texas, I dragged one of the show saddles into my kitchen, and painted this painting. I had fun creating the glazes and the textures in the saddle and the horse blanket.
I took a photo of some seagulls a few months ago near Lake Michigan (Ludington beach), and decided to paint them. I call it “The Gathering’ because these little guys do love to gather together!
