"Peony" 6x6

Oil On Hardboard 6"x 6"

Though the peony is a complicated subject to paint  my issue with this flower was  the color. I don't know what my problem is but I find pink a very difficult color to paint.  Pretty much on the same scale of difficulty as yellow. Both pink and yellow are a real challenge for me.  I keep thinking if I just keep trying to use these colors one day they will make sense to me.  I would love to hear from anyone that has conquered these colors.

This painting will be available for sale at the Laguna Festival Of Art this summer.

"Lilies" 8x8

Oil On Hardboard 8"x 8"

 Recently spent sometime going through my photo archives.  Like most artists
I have thousands and thousands of reference photos.  Just can't seem to delete any of them.  Who knows one day I might need one. Isn't it always like that?  Come across a series of lily images from years ago.  Always really like this composition.  Though I would enjoy painting a new version, and I did.

"Green Rose With Freesias" 6x6

Oil On Hardboard 6x6  SOLD

It has been a little while since I have posted anything to my blog.  Have been busy with several commission pieces.  Now that they are finished I can turn my attention back to my small works.  Found this green rose and freesias at a local florist.  The green was a little allusive at first but I feel I did right by this rose.
