Gone Fishing

Just a quick sketch at the end of the day--
the little daughter of an old friend trying her hand at fishing.

Somewhere It's Raining

Here it is a warm quiet night. The tree frogs and cicadas are whirring their nighttime music. Somewhere though, it is raining and people are hurrying home to their families for dinner and for some quiet time and a good night's sleep. Sweet dreams out there.

reprise of Perfect Day....

This painting needed a calm place for the eye to rest. Neutralizing the green under the chair a bit also allows the eye to go to the center of interest more effectively. I'm pleased with the results. I wish you could see it in person. The photo doesn't begin to tell the story.

Afternoon Light

16x20, oil on panel
This building, a WPA project during the Depression, has since been torn down by our city government, rather than being repurposed. I was sad to see it go.
