The Vision

6 1/2" x 9", SOLD
Oil over prepared underpainting
(unfinished piece)

I am happy about the direction in which this
is going. It is a variation on a pose that I have
used before, and with which I am endlessly
fascinated. In this version the red dominates.


The Beautiful Parakeet

3 1/8" x 4 7/8" - Pastel Pencil on Wallis Sanded Paper
I am working on some more complicated
paintings right now, and cannot be a "painter"
as such, every day. As everyone knows who
uses them, we paint when we use pastels.
I am very fond of this little drawing. I'm thinking
of going to the pet store - I asked them if I
could photograph their birds and they said
"yes" - to get some more material.


Monotype of Spring in the Blue Ridge

Oil Color Monotype, 5" x 4" , painted on zinc, transferred to
Rives BFK using an etching press. click here to bid
This is a small monotype done in a loose fashion. I love this tech-
nique, and wish I had more time to do them. They're tricky though-
for every five that you do, maybe one or two are keepers... Although
this isn't my favorite - I've done so many - it has a nice feel
to it, I think.
Thanks for visiting.
