The Steese Highway
North-East of Fairbanks
9 1/2" x 13" oil on board 

This month The Virtual Paintout has traveled to Alaska.  The weather's great, the clouds are like cotton, the vegetation is rich and green, contrasting with the flowers, which look like a beautiful  magenta carpet on the hillside.

This painting is for sale by contacting me, or through my Daily Paintworks site, which you can see it by clicking here.

Also, I have a nice little piece, up for auction on The Daily Paintworks site. It is framed in redwood lathe and ready to hang. Here's a small image:

You can get a better look at it, and even bid on it by clicking here.

Again, thank you for looking!

Pink Dahlia
13" x 9 1/2" oil on board
Very often people tell me that as much as they'd like to have "real art" on their walls, they just can't afford it. I sympathize. I wish more real art was affordable for me, too. I'm pricing this and other paintings very low in solidarity with folks who have to live on a budget. You can buy this painting directly through me, or see it at my Gallery page at The Daily Paintworks listed at a very reasonable price. I hope someone who wants a beautiful little painting in their life will get to have it.
It can be framed, but has a "floating frame" attachment on the back, and is ready to hang.

The summer garden is in full bloom now, all the plants are at their best. Zinnias compete with daisies, the zucchini and tomatoes are in abundance, sunflowers reign over all. Mother Nature in full glory!

Cuesta Park Annex - Summer
Oil on canvas, 16" x 20"

I love summer. I love the heat, the light and all the flowers and vegetables that grow now. I love the way the the fields turn golden and the shadows seem to dance with color.

Cuesta Park Annex is one of the last "natural" pieces of land left in our city. It is easy to stand here and imagine how the area looked a hundred years ago. Before the powers that be step in and change things ("for the better," they say), it is good to walk here, listening to the birds, the squirrels and the daytime crickets. Very peaceful.

This painting is on wrap-around canvas, painted on all sides. No need for additional framing.
