Poplar Ghosts
16" x 20"   oil on canvas

This is a scene just off the Steven's Creek Trail in Mountain View. Well, it was a scene, but winter storms blew down a couple of trees and it no longer looks like this.

Though time has changed things a bit, it's still one of my favorite paintings, and I wanted to show it as an example of some of my work showing on a website I've recently joined.

Daily Paintworks is a wonderful online gallery - you can see lots of really good pieces from some very talented painters. If you enjoy looking at art you should check this site out, it has a feeling of feshness and excitement about it! I am proud to be showing among them. You can see the art for each day here.

Sadly, I am not a "daily painter".  I wish I was, but time and my obsession for putting out the best work I am capable of force me to go slower. But when I do put out new work, I am pleased to offer it in such in such worthwhile venues as are shown in this blog. Again, thank you for looking!

Hayfields along La Rue d'Egypte, Jersey
by Patricia Musgrave
13" x 9 1/2" oil on board

The Virtual Paintout is a painting challenge where participants paint from google maps at a specific location.
This month  that location is Jersey, a small British Channel Island just off the coast of Normandy. I caught this scene right after the hay was harvested, loving the look of the huge hay bales in the peaceful landscape.

A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place
30" x 30"  oil on canvas
(framed in redwood)

Sometimes you need one of these - a pleasant place where you can just sit and spend a few minutes reflecting, meditating, or just being quiet.

Willowgate Community Garden
16" x 20" oil on wrap-around canvas

It is growing season now, and one of the nicest places I can think to visit is a community garden. Each plot is cared for in a slightly different manner. All are proud displays of the owners' efforts, values and expectations!!
