Beach View 1
Beach View 1, 3.5x5
These first 2 in oil are small because I'm trying "small pieces" with the idea I would be able to do more. But I think thats not always the case - Next time I'll do a bigger one. The key for me is to learn how to work faster.This is the first" beach" for me - and there will be more - since I'm spending more time there!

Valley Road 1

Valley Road 1, 3.5x5
My first oil in many months. Trying to change to oil for a while to try something new. The only thing I don't like is the drying time - for moving, scanning, etc.

Dream Day

Dream Day,8x8
I did this about 3 years ago. I decided to post this because I like the dream quality. The day was one of those magical days and the air was just right. The "loose kid"painted this one. I almost named this " The Three Musketeers".Soon, I will be painting more and posting new work.

Creek Reflections

Creek Reflections, 10x8
This would be my first painting since January.I chose this subject because I found a new monthly challenge blog, created by Pam Van Londen, .This was a challenge for me because I got stuck in the details - as usual. I guess I will be "reflecting" on that. If not for this" challenge", I would have chosen something less busy - hence, the challenge.

Columbia Gorge

Columbia Gorge,10x8
This was done sometime in January after taking a quick trip to the coast. I didn't post until now, because this is the first opportunity I had to "fix" some of the shadows.
