Oil on Board
A friend of mine built this beautiful boat and was kind enough to let me paint it. I wasn't feeling so good for a few days so I had to slow down and just be with what I was doing. It was a very enjoyable experience. Usually if I don't watch myself I am more focused on the outcome than the process, and that isn't so good, for me anyway. I left out the oars to add some mystery and I was happy with the results.

Oil on Canvas
Meet Peggy. All the squirrels in our yard are Peggy. She was so focused on eating this orange I was able to capture a great series of photos. Never having painted a squirrel I decided to give it a try and was pleased with the results and sure I'll give it another try in the future. I enjoy painting animals and trying to capture their essence.
