I love summer. It is, without a doubt, my favorite time of the year.

This year, I share painting time with friends and also brought art supplies with me on the road as we traveled as a family on summer trips and excursions. It was wonderful! I let me kids paint along and create their own masterpieces and I got more creative exercise as an artist. Win/win.

Some recent work from summer 2016…


The above landscape is from a stay at my in-laws farm in Creswell, Oregon. Oil on board, 8″x10″.

The inquisitive face below is an acrylic re-do of a commission I did last year. I so enjoyed painting that cow face the first time I simply had to do it again for myself. 11″x14″, acrylic on canvas.
