Three Great Flavors, Oil on Linen, 12x16

These three houses are only a few blocks from where I live, yet they have been on my list of subjects I have wanted to paint it seems like forever. It took three sessions to get them in good light. Twice clouds rolled in just as I was getting set up. Finally on the third attempt I had a perfect afternoon.

Are there Fish in There?, Oil 9x12

Yes there are fish in there. Little Sunnies. They were fun to watch as they watched me paint.

Backyard Profusion, Oil on Linen, 16x12
I like unusual color combinations - the faded green paint, the bright orange of the new wooden fence, mid summer greens and the pink - holy cow! The Pink! I had to add a red to my palette for this pink. I just couldn't get it with my usual reds.
