This young fella really enjoys the beach! It was fun to do the portrait of such a lively, congenial youngster. I posted the portrait of his brother "Yogi" last November which was also a 24x16".

This is a still life of a green tinted glass tea cup with a tea bag in it and an orange. There is blue-green drapery behind and under the cup and orange.
I saw this Morning Glory at the end of this last summer. The blue Morning Glories fade to a purple color at the end of the season. I loved the pinwheel pattern in the center of the flower.
I loved the way these philodendron leaves gracefully flowed "Toward the Light" of the window.
This is a still life of two green apples and an orange sitting on a patterned surface. The orange does not quite fit in and stays off to the side.

This aqua dancer is in a classic ballet position. I wanted to convey the movement with the brushstrokes. It is very similar to the golden dancer that I finished earlier, except the dancer is looking up and it is from a different viewpoint.

Last Fall, I shot the reference photo for this painting. Lydia was playing in the grass; she loves being outside. The sun was just at the right angle when she peeked out from behind some tall grass.
