Grand Adventure, 36 x 36, oil on linen

 This painting composition created itself. I have been wanting to use some of my vintage suitcases in a painting for quite some time but couldn’t get excited about any of the ideas I was coming up with. I had these three cases stacked on a table and one morning I just happen to glance at them while the sun was coming up and shining through the window. The sun created the perfect light and dark contrast, the background looked to be a dark sienna. I grabbed my camera and quickly took several reference photos.

Strawberry Shortcake, 36 x 36, oil on linen

This is my belated Annual Strawberry Painting. I began this painting 2 months ago but put it aside several times due to other obligations.

I must say that the strawberries were the easiest part of the painting to complete. The whipped cream with all its ebb and flow and the biscuit with its nooks and crannies were time consuming to get Just Right.

Space Pilot, 24 x 48, oil on linen

I’ve been wanting to paint this Vintage Board Game for a long time. The graphics are bright yet the box has seen better days. My kind of game!

Pink Betty, 20 x 16, oil on cradled board


I love doing commissioned paintings that included old photos and memorabilia. The painting creates a very personal image of loved ones.

This photo used for this painting includes a Mother and daughter, a child’s drawing and a hand crocheted doily.

Cordial Cherry , 9 x 12, oil on masonite.

I don’t know if I wanted to simply capture the beauty of the cordial cherry or if I was just looking for an excuse to buy myself a box of chocolates! Yum!

Read about the History of the Cordial Cherry Here and Here, too.
