Capitola got Framed

My Uncle sent me a picture of the Capitola piece after they had it framed.  It turned out great, I think.

The whole banana.  You may remember that my Aunt and Uncle asked me to do a picture of Capitola, CA.  This is the finished product. I think you can click on it to see it bigger.  At least I hope you can. 


Another Detail. 

Smith.  He just wanted to be in a picture.

I've been experimenting with some different combinations of paint and stitching. This is small--about 4x6 inches. It is not of any particular arch, since I was busy with wet paint and didn't want to go look for a reference. I think this technique has some good possibilities.

Orangey Flowers

#3 in Flower Series. This was shown at the Grinnell Artists show and sold. So, I never did take a decent picture of it.


This has been the year of starting and not finishing much of anything so far. I have four shows coming up in the next two months though, and need to have something to show. This is the latest in my flower series---#4 to be exact. It is a picture of the clematis in the backyard. Molly made a joke and said that if I did a copy of this picture in opposite colors I could call it "Anti-Clematis". I thought that was funny.
