"Dawn at the Summit"  18 x 12 inch oil on gessoboard
I have developed a love affair with painting mountains.  This one is better in person.  The shadows are a tad more purple and the sky is a little more light peach.

"Iced Tea with Lemon"  16 x 16 inch oil on gessoboard
This is another one of my "deck paintings".  I like taking the reference shots for my still lifes outside in the natural light and sometimes I even include the natural background in the painting (trees, sky, etc.).  I am planning to try to do some even during the winter and seeing what kind of paintings I can get utilizing the cold light, long shadows, and who knows....maybe even snow!
