Never tire of Roses

I just finished this rosebud painting of one of my favorite yellow/peach colored roses.   I grew up in Oregon and Mom was an avid gardener/rose grower.   “Freedom” was one of her favorites.   More coming as I search my volumes of pictures.   This painting is a 18x18 gallery wrap acrylic wrap canvas.

Return to Still Life. Such a challenge

First  title was Back to Basics 2.   I have been painting some of my favorite pots.  Fired in a gas kiln with a great shape and with a lightweight bottom, this was one of the best Bowls I ever made.   I still love and really miss working with clay.  Years ago i did all still lifes in oils.   It takes a little practice creating the same effect with acrylics.   Still learning. 

This great little teapot given to me by a ffacorite niece.  Getting there with acrylics.     Oh yeah.

Workin on oils

The oil paintings above were all painted from memories and photos while visiting and living in Colorado.  We lived in the middle of an Aspen grove up French Creek at Breckenridge.    Wonderful memories.  When i paint landscapes I prefer oils.   I just love the soft edges.
