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.

Mt. Blanc - NFS

"Mt. Blanc", 4 x 4 In, Oil on Museum Board
This is a tiny painting done with a group of painters in France, in 2001. Our mission, as I remember it, was to paint fast and limited brushstrokes. I have always enjoyed painting like this.

Headlands Path - NFS

"Headlands Path", 18 x 24 In, Oil on Canvas
This is a painting I did in 1991 when I was living in Mill Valley. At the time I could only paint while my oldest daughter was in preschool. I did these larger paintings in two three-hour sessions and now, in my older age, I don't know how I did it! Marin County has some of the most beautiful vistas to paint.

After the Rain - SOLD

"After the Rain", 12 x 12 In, Oil on Museum Board
This is another older painting, done in 2005. It won an award at a show. It certainly represents the weather these days in the Pacific Northwest. My husband and I drove up to Paradise on Mt. Rainier yesterday and hiked with our snow attachments for our boots through dense fog (luckily many had gone before us), maybe to around 6200 feet elevation from 5400 at the lodge which was covered in snow up to the second story windows. The fog miraculously stayed at the lower level and a perfect view of Mt. Rainier was just before us. We could even see Mt. Adams for a moment above the clouds and fog.
