Just for the fun of it I painted this still life 24" x 24".

Ancelle Apartments


I got this painting out of the store room after a couple of years. It had a drawing problem in the proportions of the building, I sanded it down and made corrections and now I'm happier!

A larger cityscape


I started this painting about six months ago and it stalled out so I put it away. I got it out again and have been adjusting and changing and for now it's done. 24" x 36"

Friday the 12th


I got to paint again today!




I had a chance to paint in between classes yesterday and set up a really dark still life. Will try to replace this blurry photo later in the day.
8" x 6"

Spring


There are so many flowers in the garden. I brought these in yesterday for class then stayed late to paint them myself.

This is a little unrelated to my daily painting but not to art and creativity. My daughter Mia is completing her MFA in Fashion at Parsons and has a Kickstarter to help her fund the final push to get to her graduation exhibition and her show at New York Fashion Week.  Very exciting but very costly.
I am posting this link in case there is anyone who would be able to make a contribution and also to share the link.
Thanks!

A student cancelled at the last minute this afternoon so I took the time to paint the roses that are still sitting on my table. I like this one much better. 6" x 6".

Laurel Canyon


Sometimes I get paintings out of the storeroom and when I look at them after a few months I know exactly what to do. This one was done from the tennis club and I just couldn't finish it but now it's done. 16" x 20"

Roses!


The roses are just about to bust out so I brought some into the studio and painted along with a student who was there earlier in the day. It's just 6" x 8" but loaded with paint!

I did this one at the Thursday class. It's been so busy in the studio with classes that I am in need of starting the daily discipline again.

Yesterday I went down to Murrieta teach my Thursdat class. We all did this still life.

peppers again


I'm not finished with the food paintings yet, in fact I haven't even gotten out of the produce department. Ralph's has this ongoing sale on peppers and they seem so good to paint that I can't pass them up and besides all old pepper paintings have left the studio.:)
