This painting of "Sunflowers" sold last week.  I painted it about three years ago when I was doing more formal still lifes.  I had it in our home and decided it was time to take it to the gallery at the Mesa Arts Center in Arizona.  I am very happy that it has found a new home.

My dear grandson Alden is a terrific photographer.  He sent me a photo he took in the woods close to his home in New York.  I absolutely loved the imaged and recently painted it.  This is an 8" x 10" - I am thinking of doing a larger one from the same reference. The photo on top and the painting on the bottom.

The following paintings just sold.  "In the Sticks" - became interested in the stick houses that reside on the water in the Northwest - took many, many photos - this one is about a mile from our house.

And, "Elizabeth's Sunflowers."  A dear friend sent me several photos she took last year of sunflower fields - I could not resist painting them.

Painted "Here She Comes" from a photo I took in January from our deck in the Northwest looking at Vashon Island.

Several years ago, my husband took some amazing photos of the tulips in La Conner, Washington.  I finally got around to painting them this week - just in time for spring.
