Peonies in a Vase

Oil on 3/4 inch canvas (30 x 20 inches)

My love affair with peonies continues, but I so wish they could stick around longer than just a couple of weeks, though I guess if they were here all summer, we might take them for granted.  I love the way they look and smell and since the time they have with us is so short every year, the next best thing is a painting of them ...

Fairlane Fans

Oil on 3/4 inch Canvas (24 x 18 inches)

I love the look of the vintage Ford Fairlane and was lucky enough to grab a shot if this beauty in full sunlight.  My favourite part was the reflected images in the shiny chrome – what a beauty!

Circle of Shells

Oil on Panel (12 x 12 inches)

I have been wanting to paint a shell picture again for a while and this set up gave me the opportunity to really focus on all the interesting bumps and colours on each of the shells.
