Roses and Coreopsis in a Vase

7 x 5 inches, oil on board.
Finally, here's something new, painted over a 2 or 3 day period last week. I basically repainted it twice in the process of searching for the right value relationships and colors. I tried every red and admixture I have, but never found one that satisfied me in conveying the intensity of sun coming through the red petals.

I'm hoping to post new paintings at least once, preferably twice a week. But July and August promise many distractions for me. Be prepared for more "classics" from the past.

Although I have avoided the issue of purchasing my work lately, most everything is for sale. For now, please email me if you're interested in something.

I just wanted to mention that I look forward to checking this site every morning for a new offering. I like what I see -- especially the paintings, both old and new. It's interesting to see how your style has changed over time. I particularly like the direction your moving in now. It's less declarative and more suggestive. It forces me to engage more in the work. I think that's a good thing.

I also feel I am glacially moving in the direction I want: looser, more expressive, trying to make my paintings unique and interesting.
