Water Garden

Japanese Bridge
14" x 18", Oil on Canvas

This replica of Monet's Japanese bridge is located in the Water Garden at the Cox Arboretum and Gardens MetroPark in Dayton. The pond at the Cox is not full of water lilies as at Giverny, but still has many lovely reflected views.

No Trumpet Flowers?

Fence Row 9
16" x 20", Oil on Canvas

There's more than trumpet vine, grass and poison ivy in those fence rows! This view has some blackberries ripening, but not ready to pick.

Still Life at AAPs

AAPs– Still Life 9
10" x 8", Oil on Canvas Panel

Still life painted from set up at Arts Alliance Painter's Monday morning session. This was about an hour and a quarter's work after watching a video by Qiang Huang on still life painting. I tried to follow his value set up to start, but then got into painting in my own style.
