Rainbow in the Rain

Oil on 1/8" Gessoboard. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

From sunny sunsets to rainy rainbows. This was my view from my driveway. My main goal was to capture the density in the air, the humidity, and the misty rain coming down. Don't can't have a rainbow without the rain. Another note - I painted this whole painting with a #10 flat brush. It was huge and that made the painting go quick..and I don't feel I sacrificed any detail either. It's one of my favs right now.

Santa Monica Sunset

Oil on 1/8" Gessoboard. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

This is a photo I took when I was visiting my friends in LA over Memorial Day. They took me to Santa Monica beach which is a place I will never forget for a number of reasons. On our way back to the car the sun was setting and you could see the slight haze over the mountains. Incredible view.

Avocado Reflection

Oil on 1/8" Board Approx 6"x6" SOLD

I love how you can see both halves of the avocado reflected in the blue bowl even though only the seeded half is showcased in the foreground. I hope to use this bowl more predominantly in the near future. It has a cool look to it.

Awaiting Fate

Oil on 1/8" Board Approx 8"x8" SOLD

This poor little lemon. About to get sliced and diced. He sure will taste good squeezed into some iced tea, though.
