Recent paintings

Here's two painting I've recently finished, each very different in subject and mood.

Waiting for the seasons to pass
24X36 Acrylic on canvas

 This one was fun to paint, the changing of the season from winter to spring. I love the clarity of those winter days, and the skeletal structure of leafless trees before they burst with spring growth and foliage.

Tulips & Oranges lying over red
18X36 Acrylic on wood

I always love working on this wide landscape aspect, it makes for a fun composition. Balancing the repetition of tones and color of the subjects; for example the placement of the lemons and plums as they stretch across the composition.

Terrible news

My poor gallery in Carmel had a fire last night! (New Masters Gallery) My heart goes out to everyone at the gallery! Thankfully no was one hurt and I think all paintings we're rescued. Though I dont know whether any will suffer from smoke damage?

 A kind passer-by, rescuing one of my paintings.

 Here's a shot of a passerby rescuing one of my paintings! Thank you to the kind people people who helped rescue everyones paintings, and wishes and thoughts to everyone involved.…/fire-in-downtown-carmel-art-…/33445512
