Rainbow Woods



SOLD
Oil
20"x24"

I completed this painting last night during a painting demo at Renaissance Fine Art and Design Gallery. There were many that braved the heat and had an opportunity to see 3 floors of gallery works Kathleen Stevens has so nicely put together. Add it to your list of galleries to see in Carmel. The painting is part of my recent abstract series, bold in color and shapes.

River Watch



Oil
12"x16"

Painting this week with my class down at the White River, I selected the view West looking towards the bridge at College Ave. The blue heron caught my eye as he stands so still on the fallen trees or at river's edge.

Peaks of Autumn

30"x40"

This is one of my studio paintings I have worked on in the studio in between a lot of summer plein air works. The recent larger works are taking on more of the abstract design shapes that I enjoy working in.

Afternoon Shadows at the IMA



Oil
12"x16"

This was the 3rd and final day of painting over the 4th of July weekend. It was a hot one and I kept moving forward to find the shade. I liked the view of the larger open space beyond the path and road and the design of the ever changing shadows in the foreground.

Evening Light at the IMA




Oil
12"x16"

This was the painting completed the second day at the IMA. I love this view standing on the walking bridge and looking down at the service road and the new entrance to the IMA 100 Acre Gardens. The colors are cooler than the first on and a slightly different view of the road.

Shaded Passage at the IMA



Oil
12"x16"

I've been painting for the past two days at the Indiana State Museum Gardens. The weather has been perfect and this spot on the walking bridge is always in shade. As soon as I saw the dappled light and various greens from shade to light, the location was a must to paint. It must have been a major field trip for children under 5, because about 100 passed by during the painting time to look and comment. I am still hearing "I like your painting" ringing in my ears. I learned to paint and smile at the same time. Life is good.
