Painted on Ampersand Gessobord.

I am starting an Elizabeth Robbin's online painting class. This is my first attempt using one of her online video instructions. I am so excited that she is offering an online course. I admire her flower paintings so much. Wish me luck and I will post one a month.

The course is closed now but you can email Elizabeth Robbins and see if she will let you in. Just use the link above.

Original Oil Painting Hand over Hand

Hand Over Hand

12"  x  12"

Painted on Ampersand Gessobord.

I painted this cross over composition in my studio. I like how the composition has the objects cross over each over. It reminds me of how we use to choose who is up to bat first by placing your hands on the bat 's neck and the last one to get their hand over the other person's hand wins. Is it the onion or the scallion? I will let you decide. 

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!

Original Oil Painting Random Gathering

Random Gathering


12" x  12"

Painted on  Ampersand Gessobord.

There is no real reason for these objects other than I felt like painting them. I arranged them in a circular composition making the vertical lines in the painting a nice contrast and balance to all the curved lines. It turned out to be a very complimentary gathering.
