Although I spent much of the summer working on larger works, I had to take a break every now and then to revel in the blooms of summer. The color of the flowers in my backyard was irresistible. Every few days I had to pick a bouquet and mix up some paint. This is one of a series of backyard color that slipped off my paintbrush in the warmth of summer. This painting is 6x8 inches on stretched canvas with professional grade oil paints. The original is for sale in my Etsy shop. If I decide to have some reproductions printed, they will be available here, along with other floral paintings that are now available as reproductions.

The summer has passed quickly and by the look of my postings, it seems I have not been working very hard. This is only an illusion. I've worked hard and played hard. This 18x24 inch abstract mixed-media painting is one of a pair in a series I call my Glow Series that was created this summer. I call it glow because there is a reflective sheen in the design. Photography doesn't show it off well, but a layer of foil creates a surface that bounces light in a delightful manner. Reproductions of this work are available here. Please contact me at email@example.com if you are interested in purchasing the original or check out my "available" tab at the top of the page. I will post more of the work I have developed this summer, so please stay tuned.
