Mustard Field

Mustard Field
11" x 14" oil on canvas

Spring has come, and the mustard field around the corner from my house is in full spendor. Every year, I swear I will paint it, and so finally, I have done so. It was wonderful to stand there painting while this field of yellow went on and on before me.

This picture is painted on all sides, it can be framed up or hung just as it is.

The Yellow House in Summer
9.5" x 13"  oil on board

The Virtual Paintout  traveled to Vilnius, in Lithuania this month, using Google's Street View. While searching around, looking for something to paint, I came across this wonderful house, with its tall roof peaks and Hansel and Gretel feel. I loved this place, and could easily imagine it at the height of summer, when all the flowers would be in bloom!

Shoreline Park
11" x 14"  oil on canvas

Starting with a photograph I took last summer, this piece was an exercise in painting fast, getting it right the first time, and allowing only 20% for overpainting.   Well... that was the plan, and I pretty much stuck with it, so, not too bad. I did start with a good underpainting, so I would know where everything went. You painters should try it!

This painting is painted on all sides, so you can hang it as it is or have it framed.
