Rose' and Onions


While one probably wouldn't want to pair onions with rose' wine due to their overpowering taste, I loved how the purple and green of the onions coordinated with the orange-pink of the rose'. I discovered the onions at our local farmer's market and thought they would be a good addition to my current exhibit at the Artist's Hand Gallery of Indiana, PA. The exhibit runs through October 22nd. SOLD.

Rose, Rose' and Figs


I usually paint from photos because my subjects often include travel scenes or things that move, such as people. Recently I was in the wine store and I saw a lot of pretty bottles of rose' wine and thought they would be great in paintings. We are lucky to have a great farmer's market in our town on weekends where I've been finding flowers and veggies to include. Because my only time limit for still lifes was the life of the rose and the figs, I could take my time and actually paint my recent still lifes from life. Oil on 11"h x 14"w stretched linen. SOLD.

Cafe Gerbeaud


I painted this from a photo I took during our visit to Cafe Gerbeaud in Budapest. We had to go there twice so we could try twice as many desserts. This painting will be on exhibit at The Artist's Hand Gallery in Indiana, PA. The show starts tomorrow and goes through October 22nd. Oil on 20" x 20" stretched linen.
