Wild Rose - Sold

"Wild Rose", 10 x 8 In, Oil on Museum Board
When I studied with Ovanes, I learned to put a lot of paint out on my palette, but for a long time that didn't necessarily translate into painting with a loaded brush. But more and more I am getting into it and sometimes, such as with this painting, I do it intentionally in order to make it more of a habit.

I've sold a second painting during this holiday week, and this time, my donation of $25 of the purchase price goes to the Orca Network in Puget Sound, as requested by the purchaser.  As with the last donation to Safeplace, I am thrilled to donate to this organization--on the link, take a look at the new baby orca, L115, born to the "L" pod, on December 6, presumably somewhere near San Juan Island.


  1. I love seeing your brush strokes! Your palette is beautiful. Very nice painting!

  2. Gorgeous! I love the way you make the subtle grays glow--colors that could be mud in another's hand. I'm so glad that my friend Kathryn Law gave me a link to your blog. I love your work!

  3. Linda and Jana--thank you for your comments!
