Orange Crush, 8X10, Oil on Linen
I painted Orange Crush immediately after painting Splash. Orange Crush was displayed with some of my other new artwork during the Grapevine Vintage Wine and Art Festival. It was fun experimenting with capturing the edges of light on the leaves. The light edges on the leaves are not dew, but reflections from the evening sun.

This is Winnie's Garden, 30X48 oil on canvas.

Winnie's Garden

I just finished a large painting called "Winnie's Garden" in honor of Winnifred Wigglepants, my constant companion and studio assistant who went to the Bridge on January 23, 2008. Wiggles was my light and my joy, and she never tired of being the divapug in charge of our hectic household of foster pugs, two stinky brotherpugs, and a mom and dad in constant need of training and supervision.
