Picking Flowers-Study, oil on panel, 8"x6"

This is a little painting of a lovely lady picking spring flowers. After working on larger paintings that require a lot of preliminary work it's nice to do a small quick painting.

Courtship, oil on linen, 18"x24"

My latest painting, a pair of Wood Ducks. After a long winter I wanted to paint something with a the feel of Spring. I used a small plein air painting I did of a murky shoreline for the background inspiration. The drake and hen are courting for now but after the eggs hatch the drake will take off with the other "bachelors" and leave the hen to raise the ducklings alone all Summer. I used a limited pallet of Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow and Titanium White, with just a few touches of Transparent Oxide Red for the deeper shadow tones.

If you have a home or landscape, a certain wildlife painting, or even a family member you would like to have painted, I would love to create that painting for you.
