Painting No. 26, 6x6in oil on canvasboard
I painted this one during my private art lesson that I teach each week. I was planning to paint outside with my student Matt, but the weather wasn't cooperating...so we stayed inside. His family had several of their travel photos laying around, so I choose this one out to paint. Landscapes are challenging in that there's so much information...I want to simply and stylize, but it's hard to know what to include and not go overboard and overwork things to death. I was really pleased with how this one came out and I love the little orange spots that poke through. :)

Here's the finished commission piece. I only wish I could have delivered it to Southern California myself! :)
Painting No. 24, 7x9in, acrylic on cradled hardboard
I was commissioned by one of my dear friends to create a painting for her daughters' room. This is actually my practice painting: The 'real' one was going to be pretty large, I wanted to test out my ideas first on a smaller surface. This is definitely more of a 'crafty' piece, but it was a fun break for me since I could just paint and didn't have to think too much.
