48″ x 24″ | Oil | CJK I was inspired to paint this beautiful arrangement, from Anita’s Garden Shop and Design located in Avondale, Jacksonville. I am full of good intentions of planting many more floral arrangements in tubs and pots for the patio this spring. Love the mix of foliage …. inspiring ideas!!!

12″ x 12″ | Oil on Canvas Board | This is an oil study in preparation for a larger painting. The colored under painting shows in places, these are pentimenti, traces of the previous work. Its fun to leave zings of color otherwise not expected. For me it adds something unexpected to a painting and gives me ideas for future works….! This a bouquet of hydrangea, peonies, twigs and greenery.
