This past week I've been spending a lot of time in the garden and making a waterfall for the koi pond...I guess that could be considered another creative endeavor as well. I think of Monet when I'm out there. Today was so nice I sat outside and did this 9x12 study of the daffodils. I really didn't want to cut any more, since they're the only thing blooming. Ah spring!

Faded Hibiscus...I gave this to my Sister for her Fiftieth Birthday in September of 2005. One my favorites. 16x20, oil/canvas. These are shriveled up buds from my red hibiscus tree.
I'll be in two exhibits in Milleville from now until May 16th. I have a dozen smaller paintings in the "Alcove" at the the Rennaisance Art Center and two large paintings in the spring juried show for the Society of New Jersey Artist's at 501 n. high street.

This is only from a couple of years ago, but I just now took a photo. The painting was commissioned to me by my Sister's Fiance'. They are Wine Buffs and these are some of their favorites ...with a picture of the winery in the background. The photo in the painting was taken by them earlier that year while on a visit to Italy. Of course it was fun to record my own image in the bottles...an added bonus, heheheh.
The painting is 16x20 oil on canvas
