New Painting, Ivy Camping

"Ivy Camping" 8"x10" Oil on Canvas

“Ivy Camping” 8″x10″ Oil on Canvas

I finished a quick study of my daughter Ivy last night from a photograph I took while we were camping this winter.  I feel it captures her vivacious spirit and fun personality, not to mention the pure volume that comes with being a 2 year old.  This is a smaller painting, 8″ x 10″ oil on canvas.

Original Oil Painting, “A Quiet Moment”

I finished this little painting yesterday from a photo I took of some friends of mine.  The photo was taken at Carlsbad Beach in San Diego, CA last month while we were beach camping.

I love this private moment.  They were just a step away from our chaotic group and on their own.  Graham (the baby) is still becoming acquainted with this world and the wonder of the ocean.

White Lime Still Life

I painted this small oil this morning to compliment yesterdays black lime still life.  I think they go well together.  I’ll be posting this one on etsy too.
