I am so excited to show you this next photo from Allison.  She and her husband, Khoi, just added one of my paintings to their collection and it looks fabulous!!  Allison plans on adding some burnt orange pillows which will add a pop of color on the sofa and help tie into the colors of the painting.  Look at how the lines of the curtain go with the lines of the sky in the painting.  It is such a warm, comfortable and happy room!  I’m thrilled that my painting found a beautiful home.

I pushed myself towards using a different color scheme with predominately blues and purples.

This is the second painting I have finished recently from reference photos that I took while walking in MacDonald Forest in Corvallis, Oregon.

I’ve included a couple of photographs of it hanging on a wall in my house too.   (Note:  the wall outlet is 4.5″ x 2.75″).   In the second photo you can see how I’ve continued the image around the edge of the canvas.

There are some beautiful trees where I enjoy walking in MacDonald Forest at the end of Oak Creek Drive.  I have taken some photographs of them.  They are huge!

This is the largest painting I have ever finished.  We hung it in the living room so that I could photograph it on the wall and it made the 4′ x 3′ painting that had been hanging there look very small indeed.

It is raining and quite dark today so I had to turn on every light I could which made the light look a warm yellow.

I loved the first “Birch Banter” painting that I did and was very excited to do a sister painting to expand the experience.  If you are planning to do a diptych I would suggest doing it all at once rather than one at a time, but sometimes one doesn’t know that the urge will be there to do another one.

Here they are together.  I’m hoping to sell them as a set but they do work as well separately.

This painting was partially created during the Open Studios tour. People were able to see it take form. I know those during the first weekend really wanted to see the final painting … so here it is!

Yes, it is an actual place in the Portland, Oregon area but unrecognizable it its incarnation here.
