"Apples & Vase", plus a video DEMO!

"Apples & Vase"
6" x 6" Oil on panel

I've been wanting to do a video demo for so long; I finally bit the bullet and decided to post this one, despite it not being "perfect". I love this little painting, which happens to have one of my favorite color combos - red and turquoise!

Here's a link to the time-lapse video of it on YouTube (some folks have had issues viewing it, so if this happens, let me know!). And for you "daily painter" followers out there, I'm sure you'll notice a Carol Marine influence in my painting approach. That's because she's been a huge source of inspiration for me over the years, and I've studied her work extensively.

"Magic Carpet Ride"

After a mini-hiatus from doing my daily paintings, it's time to get back into the saddle! The good news is that I have been painting; just trying to get a few larger pieces done for some shows I have this summer. Here's one I did to help loosen me up.

Painting Giveaway Winner!!

I just realized that I completely forgot to announce the winner of my painting giveaway from back in January... wow, I'm way, way behind...

The winner was Chantal D., who happens to be an old friend of mine from high school. How cool is that :-) And we managed to get together for coffee so I can hand-deliver her painting, which was great since we had SO MUCH to catch up on!

Here's the painting she chose, which was definitely one of my favorites, too. Good choice! :-)
