Two Red Apples

  Who doesn't love the fall season with all the beautiful apples being harvested? These were two luscious apples that escaped pie-making for a setup. This is a small oil painting, 8 x 10" done on canvas. I love doing fruit and vegetable paintings from a still life set up, and red is always fun to paint!

Shimmering Lights


"Shimmering Lights" is a real departure from my normal genre in watercolor. It's a small piece, about 5 x 7", which I matted to about 10 x 12". It's a moody, atmospheric painting, depicting that special twilight time between sunset and night. I liked the calmness of the still water and the indication of what could be a shore town or lakeside community. I sometimes attempt this type of painting in oil where you can also capture that luminous quality, but I really enjoyed doing this small piece. Hope you like it too--someone did, as it recently sold!
