PLANES OF THE HEAD

Oil on Panel
6x6

Because of the many values this was a difficult painting, but one in which I learned - again - the importance of comparing values throughout the painting.  I squinted and scraped and repainted to achieve the results I wanted.  I'm pleased with the outcome.

FACE No. 119

6x6
Oil on Panel

I never tire of painting faces.  Although, we all have eyes, nose and mouth each face is unique and presents it's own challenges.  When I began this series of mugshots I had no idea I would get to 119.  With each painting I've learned something, sometimes technical, sometimes emotional.  I hope to continue this journey with many more faces.

SPRING BOUQUETS


SPRING BOUQUET
8x8
Oil on Panel


SPRING BOUQUET 2
8x8
Oil on Panel

These paintings were accepted into Dutch Gallery's "Spring Reflections", their spring juried show.  The second painting was abstracted from the first one and although I enjoyed painting both of them I have to say the abstract was more fun.  The show runs from May14 to July 16.  If you are in the Dallas area stop in and see some great art.

12 x 12
Oil on Panel

Back to mugshots!  This one popped out because of his hair.  Dreadlocks are fun to paint.

ASPARAGUS

6x6
Oil & Wax on Panel

This is a continuation of my Food Dance series.  With Spring here, I'm always reminded of how good asparagus is to add to a menu.  It tastes delicious and is beautiful with its many shades of green.

Roasted Asparagus

Place asparagus, that has been drizzled with olive oil, in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes.  

It's healthy, tastes good and so easy to prepare.
