Peanut Butter



Oil on Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

Finally a new daily painting! I have been doing a lot of gallery paintings and commissions lately. Both of which I am truly grateful for. However, there is nothing more freeing to an artist than painting what they want and how they want to. I love the expressive brushwork...and of course love the subject matter. I'll give you a hint about tomorrow's painting. It's the sister to this one :)

Wooden Shoe with Bottle



Oil on Canvas Board. Approx 10"x10"

Another new piece for Susan Powell Fine Art. This was a tough painting to photograph. The bottle in the background was my great-grandfather's and the license plate came from my Dad. It is a composite material since it was during the time of conserving metal for the war. As for the wooden shoe mold, I bought it from the resale shop I patron and instantly fell in love with the shape. Carved out of one piece of wood. For purchase information, please contact the gallery at 203-318-0616 or visit their website at www.susanpowellfineart.com.

The Red Pair



Oil on Board. Approx 11"x16"

I can't believe it's been longer than 2 months since my last post. I assure you I have been painting. This is one painting that I spent some good time on. I wish I had a better pic of it because in real life it is full of subtleties that the camera just didn't get. Anyway. I have another show opening at Susan Powell Fine Art in CT and will be posting those paintings in the coming days. Stay tuned...
