Self Portrait in the Summer

Some days I just want to kick back and do a self portrait...checking in with whatever I think I look like on any particular one point as I was working on this I stood back and burst out laughing...there were so many wrinkles! who was this old lady Well I took care of that with one fell swoop of the brush...easiest face lift one can get...I like the color notes of the face...oil on canvas 16x20"

Laura Chester's Table

A few days ago I took the painting class up to Laura's newly renovated old house to work...everyone was outdoors painting the beautiful summer gardens and views except me... I had fallen in love with this wonderful table, chairs and cupboard...the daylilies were the clincher....I adore daylilies...watercolor and gouache 22x30"
