Done! “buoys”

No matter how often I type the word “buoys” it still seems like it’s spelled incorrectly. Isn’t it funny how some words will do that the more you look at them? “Buoys” if the third of four oil paintings from my “Vacation” series. It’s one of my FAVORITE paintings that I’ve created in 2010. If […]

20 gallons of Blueberries

The main focus of this painting should be the middle section […]

Iris, Narcissus, and Four Gerberas find a good home!
