Here is a progress snapshot of my midday summer painting: "Fallen in the Afternoon" 18 x 30 oil painting in progress.  

Here is a recently finished backyard plein air painting. It was a carryover from last year, and I waited until the bush came back into bloom. An excellent model was found for the unfinished flower, plus a few leafy additions : >)

It feels so good to be back at work again with "Shaded Pool," my summer morning painting in progress. I'll post some updates as it moves along.  
  3 days of gray weather allowed me to do this small plein air painting ... with a few rain breaks. I really enjoy these daffodils. They are petite, but their forms are so elegant: "Small Chorus of Angels" 8 x 10 oil painting.

Here is my afternoon March/April plein air painting in progress. I reworked some previously painted water, plus I decided that I really loved the April green understory more than the already painted orange-grays of March. Looking forward to next year: "Spring Chatter" 18 x 30 oil painting.

  Here is a plein air painting from our backyard. I was going to paint something else, when this sight stopped me. Glad it did! "Backyard Forsythia" 9 x 12 oil painting.

Friends, it is so good to finally get to share this painting with you:  “Advent” oil – 72 x 58. As you might tell by the size, it was an important painting for me, and it is my first painting obviously inspired by my faith. It is about the seeking, and the finding, in the climate, the time, and the flavor of the winter season.  May your own prayers, meditations, and evening walks bring you peace.
