Blue Bottle with Orange

5/23/10 "Blue Bottle with Orange",  14" x 10", Oil
Since today I am at my youngest daughter's college graduation, this is a painting from one of the two days last week when there was actually all day sun in Olympia.  Last summer I painted 50 block studies out on my deck in both direct sunlight and overcast conditions.  This is my first block study of 2010.


  1. Wonderful work, so happy to discover your blog!

  2. Really beautiful colors. The orange is luminous!
