Summer reading 18x24 in oil.

I did this one for Susan as a Mothers day gift, a most beautiful subject. I would be happy to talk about your commission ideas.

Simcoe fair Clydes. 11x11 inches oil.

This was a beautiful clear fall day and we spent the morning wondering in the horse barns and through the field as the draft horses were prepared for show. A few older guys did the same observing and offering a little conversation and obviously had years of experience in their day. I love how these huge impressive  horses are often handled expertly by the knowing  hands of women. When the morning light is added to the mix it can inspire a painting.

Apricot blossoms. 10x8 oil.

I  cant resist the blossoms in spring  after a long winter, these are from a tree in our yard and I was challenged to find such an interesting colour, not pink but with some orange and peach ... apricot.
