Still life painted in north light during a rainstorm.

10x8, oil on panel

It has been raining for days.  We are having historic flooding in our region.  Electricity and phone service comes and goes in the area. Many roads and bridges have been washed out. Yesterday I painted on the covered back porch while it rained.  I had rescued the roses from my garden. It was cold and windy, a raw kind of day, but the light was beautiful.

Into the Light



12x9, oil
Over the months of November and December, I've had the privilege of painting some commissioned pieces and illustrating a book.  Now I'm back at the easel, exploring ideas that have been gathering.
