Dining Out

To celebrate special occasions, many of us go out to dinner. Breaking bread with dear friends is one of life's loveliest events. Good wit and wine, sparkling dishes and the luxury of luscious food without lifting a finger. Oh joy! I tried to paint all these feelings into Dining Out, Oil on Board, 24x30".

Foot Tappin' Festival

We stopped going to festivals a while ago but I did go to Folk Life a few months back and surprised myself but how much I liked it. Being outside in the sun surrounded by cheerful festival goers and hearing live music was a joyful experience. In "Foot Tappin' Festival", I tried to capture the movement of the musicians and the visual excitement that I felt. This painting is Oil on 24x36" canvas, my largest oil to date. If you'd like to see me and more of my oils, go to Covington Cellars Winery in Woodinville, WA July 16th, Thursday night from 5-8pm. Free wine tasting for friends of the artist!
