As we continue to shelter in place, our bluebird neighbors are busy doing what they do each spring. This little jewel of spring caught my attention the other morning. 14×18 oil on canvas.
Seeking new subject matter during my Corona shelter-at-home, my 5-year old granddaughter suggested a butterfly while I was FaceTiming with her the other day. What a great, positive idea, given the state of the world just now. Butterfly Kisses is 18×24, oil on canvas. Enjoy!
In spite of the pandemic gripping the world right now, Spring — and all it’s wonder — is moving forward as scheduled. Inspired by the blossoming Candytuft growing along the stone wall I can see out my back window. Oil on canvas, 24×30.
Wind, sun, water. Always changing. Calling this one “Swept.” 36×36 oil on canvas.
A bright and cheery nod to a better day to come. Brilliant sun rays sparkling through the early morning sky. 40×30 oil on canvas.
Inspired by a picture taken by my son during a recent visit to Brazil to visit his fiancee, I tried to capture the relatively small place we occupy in a larger, more vast eternity. When we pause to look up, down, and around, it’s easy to realize there is most definitely something more — particularly in these very uncertain times. Oil on canvas, 36×48.
This is a slightly different take on the “Engaged” painting I created a few weeks back. I used a different color palette for this. 48×36, oil on canvas.
The snow fell, to a surprising depth. I peered down to the end of the driveway, the stone wall pointing the way. The world was muffled into near silence, save for a few Jays crying out here and there in search of a morning meal. Another of my paintings created during my Corona shelter-in-place. Oil on canvas, 18×24
Not sure of the inspiration behind this painting, but completed it the other day in the midst of my Corona shelter-in-place. I suppose, like everyone just now, I’m seeking positives. This rooster suggests the start of a bright new day ahead. Oil on canvas, 22×28.
