"DREAMY THOUGHTS" 8x6inch oilon board

With the soft clouds filling the sky as the day begins its end, I say good by to the wetlands and all that it will be... With summer coming to an end I leave this place, go back to cars, traffic, cell phones, emails and a-like.... Could be be worse... I count my blessings.. Lots of under-painting in this one, each stage I let dry then build more color on top till I got what I wanted..

"HELLO DESSERT" 8x6inch oil on wood

So, my wife walks in with a sheepish grin on her face and at the same time extending her arm holding this bag out to me... I say, smiling back "what's in the bag" as she hands it over ... I slowly undo the folded top just to play the suspense a little longer for myself.... I peek inside and suck in my breath..."Candy Apples"! You must understand... I... LOVE... CANDY... APPLES!... Finding spicy cinnamon candy apples is really difficult or so it seems... Well, I immediately unwrapped the paper, salivating, I prepare carefully to take the first bite.... Fortunately I had the presence of mind to photograph it first... Then the challenge of figuring out how to begin eating this delectable, sweet, scrumptious candy apple.... At 7:14 am I had the second one for breakfast... Just couldn't wait any longer...:) Oil on Birch panel mounted on a varnished wooden box: (Sold)

"SANCTUARY" 8x6inch oil on wood

Back-bay and its wildlife preserve is truly a wonderful place to be. It is very much like a sanctuary not just for migrating birds, but for us humans that also need to stop and take a mental refuge amongst the waters, reeds, trees and flowers.... So much to learn here when one stops..

"CLOSED?" (oil on Birch 8x6inch)

Closed! I said to myself in disbelief looking at the gas-gage and hoping I'll make it to the next station.... Yes I found another just in time and could lean back and cruse happily into LA...
Road trips are like life.. A little miss calculation and you can be in trouble... Although... I do like a little trouble ever-now-and-then...:) 8x6inch oil on Birch panel, mounted on a varnished wooden box: (Sold)

"EAST 10" (oil on Birch 8x6inch)

With the sun glaring on my windshield I head east to Palm Springs on a hot summers late afternoon. My trusty camera in the ready, I click off one shot hoping to capture the subject for my next painting. So here it is in all its glory, painted in sepia colors, I handled this almost as a water color on top of lots of under-painting. The glazed color's gave the richness to the shadows I needed, popping the glare to the setting sun. This oil painting is a 6x8 inch on birch paneling that is mounted to a varnished wood box. $140 +s/h (Sold)
