I was walking down by the Marina one Sunday morning and saw this boy, doing what boys do, throwing stones into the water....  each time trying to see how far he could throw them! I sat and watched...eventually he stood still enough for me to get this photo. I liked the soft morning light!!
I am still clearing out 'stuff ' so when I move it won't be too much to do. It is taking a lot of my painting time...trying to stay calm!!!

Dancing Daisies

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

These daisies were swaying in the breeze along the beachfront...all that was missing was the music!!  I love the violet color of the petals and the bright green leaves...brightens up the day!!

I like painting animals close up and trying to capture the expression in their eyes....this is another one where the title came to me before I painted it! He looks pretty serious about something...could be me with the camera telling him to smile!! 
This looks better in real life...I spent a lot of time trying to get a good image and it only seems to be on my blog that I have frustrating!!!  This was the best I could do!
