New England Beach

New England Beach
12" x 16" on Canvas Board

This was painted by request from my sister as a surprise gift for her friend.
It goes without saying that when my sister asks, there is no charge..
but a humble gratitude that she would ask me.

Painted for fun and waiting for an organization to donate to.

Fall Remnants

Fall Remnants
Shoshone National Forest
8x10 Oil on Board

For this painting, I switched out the big canvas for a small, homemade board and pulled my smaller, fine tip brushes from the can.  I kept my focus to one area at a time, concentrating on detail as opposed to slapping color on here and there as I thought I should in keeping with the style of impressionism.  This seems to have worked better for me, and I was pleased with the outcome.
