Lemonade: Sold

This vintage ball tilt pitcher was a "find" from Stillwater, Minnesota. I love it, and have used it in many paintings. It looks good with my favorite mug and a beautiful fresh lemon.

Alki Beach Seattle: Sold

This is a painting of Alki Beach in Seattle on an April morning. There are lots of opportunities for painters in this area, with lots of people, dogs, ferries, and other subjects ....the trick is narrowing down and simplifying.

Santa Rita Mountains: Sold

This piece was painted on a beautiful April morning after a plein air workshop with professional painter Phil Starke. His class was wonderful, and it was really fun to be able to work quickly to capture the feel of the morning and the gorgeous scenery. The Santa Rita Mts are South of Tucson, AZ. and are well known as a haven for birds.
