Beaux Arts, 8x8 oil painting

Beaux Arts
8x8 oil painting
on Raymar cotton panel
Unframed

I named this painting Beaux Arts after the fund-raising event at Scottsdale Artists' School last Saturday. It was a fun night and a successful event for the school.  I'm pleased to say that the two paintings I donated to the silent auction were sold.  I was on the Decoration Committee, and we had made sunflower arrangements for the tables; so we all took some home after the event. My sunflower arrangement died quickly, but I had taken lots of reference photos, and I painted this from one of those photos. Beaux Arts is an annual event, and you can see all the paintings in the auction here.

This painting is available through an online auction on Daily Paintworks.

Thank you for viewing my art.

Matilija Poppy, 9x7 watercolor painting

Matilija Poppy
9x7 watercolor painting
on 140 lb. Fabriano watercolor paper
Unmatted and unframed

I painted this from a photo I took of a Matilija Poppy at Mission La Purisima in Lompoc, California last year.  These poppies have large petals on tall stems, and they float in the breeze like angels.  They are so elegant, and challenging but fun to paint.

What Did You Say? 7x5 watercolor painting


What Did You Say?
7x5 watercolor painting
on 140 lb. Strathmore paper
unframed, but matted to 10x8 size


This little bird was in a tree when I was visiting one of the California missions, and each time I tried to get closer with my camera, he would move farther away from me.  So my reference photo was a little fuzzy, but he made a good subject for a quick little study.

Today I finally finished a painting I started a few months ago in a session at my friend Krista Eaton's studio.  I no longer had a reference photo, so I just winged it.
