Yellow and Red Flowers

"Yellow and Red Flowers", 14 x 11 In, Oil on Museum Board
This was done at the Plein Air Washington Paint-In yesterday. The last painting of the day, I worked on it for maybe 45 minutes. I wasn't trying to make it look particularly realistic, just slapping on the paint. That's really what I want to do at this point in my painting life.

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.


  1. I like the energy in this. That is fabulous and done in 45 min! Nice!

  2. Thank you Cathy--I really appreciate your comment!

  3. This is a very lovely painting. There is a lot of expression and energy to your brushstrokes. Impressive and stunning work.
