  • Family Outing: Acrylic Geese Painting

    This summer, I am exploring adding more color to my paintings. While the photo doesn’t do it justice, this one has a lot of cerulean and warm washes of sienna and some greens, and even alizarin – all colors that you can see reflected in the ever-changing waters. It was fun to paint what is…

    A few days ago, I set up a still life in my studio with a lilac sprig that I took from the bush outside. I wanted to paint my impressions of light and color, following the Hawthorne method as best as I could. Because of the late afternoon sun, there was a lot of golden…

  • What House Cats Dream About

    A couple of years ago, I painted a portrait of my tabby cat on the hunt. This is a whimsical one, I call it “What House Cats Dream About,” since he looked as fierce as any lion or tiger when stalking through the grass.
