Fresh Colorful Paintings of Still Life, Gardens and Figures

ON THE TOWN
OIL ON PANEL
I came across this little guy on a morning walk in San Diego. There is a certain freedom in painting dogs instead of humans. I think it's that unconditional love thing and they don't really care if you got a likeness or not.
My work is a continuum of exploring the still life. For me, the still life is an endless source of subject matter. I have painted the figure and landscape but am always drawn back to the beautiful organic shapes and colors of flowers, fruit and vegetables. I use flowers from my garden when possible as well as objects I have collected for many years. Patterns in fabric and reflected light also play a strong role in the entire composition.
