Baby slept in and I had a chance to finish the big arboretum painting this morning! Yeah. I really like the edges.

It’s my birthday today; this morning we went for a nice little drive, and now I’m sipping an iced vanilla latte and painting. :)
I was jury-accepted for the 20 under 40 show at Tinman Gallery (Spokane, WA), opening Feb 4th! This was a great honor for me.
This painting was one of 4 that will be showing – The picture will be returned to this blog post after the show opens.

These backlit flowers and apple came out really nicely.
I’ve been painting some flowers set up in my window again… And in the process I pulled out some of the first flowers I painted. Here they are!
Above: Blossoms / 6×8 / oil on canvas / $75
Unframed, free shipping. White blossoms from the back yard. I like the translucence that came through in the green soda bottle.
Below: Weeds / approx 9×9 / oil on canvas / $100
Unframed, free shipping. These flowers look like black-eyed susans to me, and they are growing in huge numbers in empty lots around here. They’re very pretty.
With this one i was trying to work with thinner paint. I’m scrubbing it.

Love that good old orange and blue. Oil on wood, 6×6″.
Cows / 18×24 in / oil on canvas / framed / $600
I finished my big painting today – it’s a bigger version of my small cows in the field. Or I suppose it would be more accurate to say that the small painting inspired this one, and I used it for reference, as well as the reference photos. Oil on canvas board, 18×24″.
