Spring Song
9”  x 12" x 1.5"  oil on Gallery-wrap canvas
$75

Well, it’s spring - finally! The Spring flowers came into bloom but are now are leaving us. Can one show how quickly they come and go using paint and brush? It's part of the whole  “flower story” so it seems right to include that, while showing the idea of how beautiful they are, even in memory. The “minimalistic” approach felt right for this painting, putting in just the basics - flowers, stems and vase. I hope you like it!

This piece is painted on gallery wrapped canvas, the black background continuing on all sides of the canvas. It hangs flush against the wall and does not need framing, but you could if you like.

Flame Tree
9" x 12"  Acrylic on canvas
  $75

Ghana was the destination for The Virtual Paintout this month. Using Google Street View to find a place we might paint or draw, we travel around looking for just the right spot. I found this scene on Tema-Jasiken Road in eastern Ghana where the flame trees were coming into bloom. I like this industrious little yard - it seems like you could imagine a good story unfolding here. You can see it for yourself by clicking this link.

This piece is painted on all sides of the canvas. It can be framed, but you could hang it up just as it is.
