"Toppings" 12 x 12 inch oil on panel

I'll admit that I was intimidated to paint this.  The glass coupled with the partial opacity of the icing clinging to it, the whisk......and the zillions of sprinkles had me sweating a bit.  I am so glad that I finally delved into it, however.  I learned a lot and I really like the result!  The cookies were good too!

"Water Colors" 9 x 12 inch pastel on archival paper

The shadows thrown across the whitewater is what really drew me to paint this image.  I enjoyed developing the color scheme so much that I plan to do a larger oil painting of it so that I'm not limited to the range of color offered by my set of pastels.

"A Nod to Summer" 24 x 24  inch oil on panel

I wanted this rose to embody the gentle, dreamy feel of a warm summer afternoon.
