"Dressed to Kill"

It's fun to watch the antics of quail in winter. I wanted to warm up the painting so I used
orange on sagebrush in the background - a good contrast against the cool blue.

"Winter Scratch"

Each winter, we throw out wheat for the Quail - I love watching them uncover it for a meal. So much fun, they'll scratch and throw snow out behind them, bury their head in the snow to get the grain...

Italian Stucco

"Italian Stucco" My challenge with this piece was to make Italian roofs, that are literally all the same color, interesting. Thru experimenting I found that a certain blue and a certain green did the trick. I liked the shapes created by sun on the one side of the buildings, while the shade side has all the beautiful nuances of color over color. Stepping away and then returning after about an hour, I find that it is working beautifully. Pastel on UArt 6"x11.5" offered at $175.00 unframed.
