I haven’t taken the time to post much. But here are a couple of paintings that I posted on Instagram. I had a hard time photographing these two, being very shaded with dark areas that have a lot of glare (note the upper right corner of Goutweed which should me much darker with purple notes.) Consequently, the photos are not super accurate, but are close enough (and as good as it gets with my current technology!)

Here are a few paintings that I had a hard time photographing without glare. Not perfect, but an improvement on previous attempts. That shimmering quality in the photo, particularly the two top ones? That’s just the light bouncing off the paint and varnish when I photograph them. They were all started in plein air.

My backyard lawn inspired my latest painting. It began as a plein-air painting one afternoon with the intention of completing it the next day but my husband mowed the lawn in the meantime. I was forced to finish it in my studio.
