Had time to squeeze a small painting in this week! I have always loved waterlilies, these are in a pond at Clive Square near town and always look beautiful when they are blooming. 
I am over half way through my exhibition paintings...whew!!! It has been a mission, I think I prefer painting smaller work...up to 12"x16."

Works in Progress

Thought I would post a couple of  works in progress as I've not had time to paint any small ones this week. The image is dark because I had to take the photo inside.
These  paintings of the Estuary are going to be part of my exhibition at Quay Gallery in October. It is good to be painting landscapes again... such a lovely place with beautiful light.
It's been a long time since I have done large work...there is still quite a bit of work to be done before they are finished and there are another two or three after that.

Mini Pumpkins

6"x8" Oil on gessoboard

Mini pumpkins from the Farmer's Market! I placed these on my printer until I was ready to set them up, but the bright back light streaming through the window looked good enough so I painted them like they were! The color is better in real life...sometimes the camera doesn't get it right!!!
