After the Blizzard

5x7 oil

This is the view looking out the kitchen window. The storm has passed and now the sun shines brightly throwing shadows on the snow.

Once Bitten,Cherry Cordial

Once Bitten,Cherry Cordial 4"x4" oil on gallery wrapped canvas  

I wanted to try to paint the sensation of biting into a cherry cordial.
At Christmas I bought a small box of them with the intent of painting at least one of them before they know.
I did a pratice painting on a longer piece of scrap masonite. This painting is based on the study I did at Christmas.

The sides of the painting are painted black, and the decorative easel comes with the painting, or it can be hung on the wall as is, either way  no framing is needed.
The painting is for sale in my Etsy shop. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Thanks for looking,

Conservation Island,Promised Land State Park

9x12 oil on stretched canvas- Fredrix float canvas- no frame needed.

This is the view we get when fishing from our boat. We usually head to this cove( we call it Keystone Cove) when we want to escape the winds on the main part of the lake. This cove is good for some bass when you fish the first dropoff from the side. On days when we are not trailering the boat we walk the trail on Conservation Island.
