I recently had the honor of judging a gallery show. A nice addition to the art were these beautiful, fragrant roses. I know these aren't readily identified as roses. They started out looking like roses but I got carried away with my application of thick oil paint. Now, maybe they're peonies. 8 x 6 inches, oil on masonite.

Today I painted on Ampersand™ gessobord™ for the first time. Boy, is it slick. The surface improved after a while or maybe I just got used to it. We have sun for summer in Washington...and not a moment too soon. This kiwi was in kitchen sunlight. 6 x 6 inches, oil on panel.

The past week was unusual. "In sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, 'til death do us part." We're getting over THE COLD, great news this week - a job opportunity for a family member, and the sad, unexpected passing of journalist Tim Russert. Cloudy mornings here in Washington State but we're starting to get some sun in the afternoons. It is supposed to be summer. Somehow, I've actually had a good painting week with the three new paintings. Larger images and more information on my Current Work blog.

And, I'm posting this one to remind myself to wait for "real" peaches. These are small and hard; first of the season in the grocery store. I'll paint peaches again when our Frost Peach tree produces in a few months. 6 x 6 inches, oil on masonite.

I'm still putting my studio back together after tearing it apart to paint the walls blue. Haven't been able to get to my easel this week but I did frame six of the little daily paintings. They will go to Jeffrey Moose Gallery soon.
