Stockbridge Bowl Marshes

When I arrived at this sight to paint, the sky was really lovely...I had to paint very quickly as all the clouds disappeared and a clear blue sky took its place....not as inspiring to me...oil on canvas 30x30"

Color.... and Black and White

Same flowering kale different day...a totally different way of describing what I see...every color change creates form and so it is simple, in a way, to paint what I am looking at and have it become a recognizable thing....with the black watercolor paint I am limited to line and value...light dark ...very simple in a different way...I like  them both, I love the kale...Any thoughts ?? oil on canvas 20x30" watercolor on paper 22x30"

Portrait of Josh

A friend who was willing to pose one afternoon...his father was from Ecuador...I loved his dark curly hair and innocent expression...just 21 years old...I did a couple more studies before this ...I liked this one the best...still trying to stick with the black watercolor on paper  22x30"

A most amazing vegetable...a fractal....every time I look at it I see it as a more beautiful and white watercolor simplifies the design...there is one more in the series....then there are 2 oils.....16x20" each
