Trumpet Vine

I started this as a watercolor. I was not happy with it and making drastic changes on a transparent watercolor is beyond my capacity. I then painted 2 coats of clear gessoe over it and painted it with oil.

White Rose

This was painted for a monochromatic challenge. I used what was left on my palette hoping that would be somewhat gray.

Wilson Lake after the Snow


We had 7 inches of snow a couple of days ago. When the roads cleared I took the dogs out to Wilson Lake. The little dashound Lucy hopped from one footprint to another to get through the deep snow. She finally figured out if she walked under the evergreens the ground was cleared. Maybe I should buy a sled and she can ride on that. She was still excited the next time I went out.

White Roses

I am not as good as I would like to be at painting roses, so I keep trying. I think this one is better than the last one. This is good enough for now.
