I painted over a landscape painting to get this one and there is only a speck or two that is left of the original painting. I wanted to create beautiful color. As one of my friends likes to say, “I just wanted to push paint around.”

One might not know that the reference for this painting was taken from something real. I really wanted to pull away from trying to make it look true to life.

I continue to make a liar out of myself by painting flowers. Three weeks ago I stated in public that I don’t paint florals or still life because I’m not a gardener or a collector of things.  I think that I paint landscapes or figures like crazy for a while and then need a visual break and a different kind of challenge.  This must be my break.

I started sketching these flowers and came up with a decent composition.  First I started painting big white blossoms but it never wowed me.  I kept painting from the sketch and photo the first day, but when I came back to it the next day I put those away and concentrated on what was happening on the canvas.   Next I plan on doing a large canvas full of flowers!

Aspen trees!  One of my favorite subjects.  Although this is a pretty large painting it felt small compared the one I finished last week (“Entanglements.“)  This one would fit into my car.

The Willamette Valley is full of farms and fields.  I am inspired by the buildings and farm land surrounding me and take great liberty with the subtleties in the land with rolls, sweeps, caligraphy and color.

I can totally see a dress made out of feathery strips of fabulous soft fabric that flutters when a person made the slightest movement.  Wouldn’t that be a hoot to wear?  I actually hate to shop so don’t have a lot of nice clothes but I do like to dress up in pretty things!
