Red Onions

8"x8" Oil on board

These red onions came from the market, I don't often see them with the roots still attached like it was a lucky find! They look like they have to paint!! I liked the strong shadow the light created and muted reflection from my gray glass palette.

"Photo Session Over"

8"x8" oil on gessoboard

These geese did not want any more photos! I was taking some of them swimming over in the Estuary...they put up with me being there for a while, then just turned and waddled off. Ha! I won out. I actually liked this with the bit of attitude better than when they were in the water!!

Eggplant Babies

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

I bought these eggplant babies from the market...nice colors and shapes to paint!! It's good to paint something simple when short on time! I am finding it difficult to focus and stay in the ' zone' lately! I have plenty of paintings  in my mind, but that's as far as they get...I tell will get easier!!!

Palm-Dampier Beach

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

I found this small palm tree close to the waters edge on the beach in Dampier when I was on holiday in Western Australia last year and I've been wanting to paint it for a while. I love the bright green fronds against the blue water!! Very tropical!

Color on a Gray Day

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

I love the Agapanthus flower...I took this photo on a gray day when I was walking around the Estuary. There are a few of these growing along the walkway and they add such lovely color.  I loved the blue against the gray sky background!!
I'm a bit slow on the painting again...been too busy clearing out 'stuff ' so we can sell the house, I hope that will change soon!!
