Horton Garden V. 3

"Horton Iris Gardens"
6 x 6
oil on Ampersand Gessobord

I've painted this before and I wanted to re-visit it to see if I could capture the light. This is one of the places I painted when I took a workshop with Marc Hanson last year, it was a gorgeous setting.

I wanted to let you know I havent dissapeared :) My Mother had surgery and I have been her caregiver for the last few weeks so it's taking most of my time. I've been working on a painting that I hope to finish tonight, painting has been my saving grace through all of the stress I've been experiencing... thank God for paint!

I also wanted to mention that having "followers" means a lot to me, it is so nice to know that there are people interested in my work. Thank you :)

Fresh Laundry

Fresh Laundry
5 x 7
Oil on linen panel

I took a few of my favorite photo references and with the use of Photoshop created this composition - I really miss the ocean, the scent of the salt air mingling with freshly laundered sheets hanging in the breeze is intoxicating to me.
