Wine and Flowers   Oil on Canvas   11 x 14"
It has been quite a while since I have painted in a format other than 6 or 8 inch square.   However, my subject matter has not drifted far from my favorites ... glass and sunflowers.   Sometimes the comfort of the familiar is just what you need!   I set up this still life but also took a photo with my Ipad.   It was fun using both painting from life and technology tricks at the same time.   This will be on display at the art show on May 6 at MartinFine Art as well the San Dieguito Art Guild's Mothers Day Tour and then on to the Off Track Gallery in June if no one has decided to adopt it!  Cheers!

Mom's Taos

I am painting for the San Dieguito Art Guild's Mother's Day Art and Garden Tour.  I think of Taos when I think of my Mother. She often said her most precious moments were the summer days in Taos spent watching and listening to her children play.   I think we become a part of every person and place we love.  My brother took this photo of me and my sister in Taos a year after losing my Mom.  She was truly with us that day!
