Pelican

When we were visiting my in-laws in Florida, we were standing on a dock watching fishermen clean their catch. The pelicans were very interested in any scraps that might be left unattended. This one bird landed just in front of the dock, turned to look at me as if to say, “So, what’s happening?”

This second orchid was also blooming in my home. The red blooms were oh, so brilliant. I gifted the orchid plant to a dear friend of mine. The original of this painting sold at Annmarie Garden’s Artsfest 2008 so I guess someone else liked the flower as well šŸ™‚

This abstract painting was a product of another attempt to try something new. I like the composition but don’t think abstract art is where I feel most comfortable.

Leaves

Original: $425

This painting of fall leaves was a composition from the leaves in my yard in Bethesda, Maryland. We used to have bags and bags of leaves – too many to use as mulch and too many to scoop over to the curb for curb-side pick up by the county. Many a leaf was raked but a few found another life in my painting.

Here’s the Indian Woman who is mated with my Indian Man. Hot colors abound. I’m not certain my instructor from Glen Echo would agree I’d used enough red; he seemed a hard guy to please.

Indian Man

Reproductions Available

This Indian Man and his counterpart, Indian Woman, were part of an experiment to try to force me to use more hot colors. An instructor at a Glen Echo program, the only art course I took outside of Montgomery County Public School, encouraged me to, “use more red.” So here is more red. Can’t say I ever felt comfortable painting in hot colors. I’m more a cool, blue person. šŸ™‚
