"Bougainvillea" Song of Solomon 2:10 oil painting, 6x6

Song of Solomon 2:10  "My beloved responded and said to me, "arise my darling, my beautiful one, and come along."

This bright pink flowering plant was stretching itself through a crack in a cedar fence. "Hello" Cynthia, paint me".  Although I passed it several times, egnoring it's plea, finally I stopped and painted this cutie.  It reminds me about the struggle it takes to get noticed, as an artist, and for anyone who has something to share. Maybe a story. So I listened to the flower's story. 

6x6 oil painting on Ampersand gessoboard. I have begun to add a primer of oil ground by Gamblin to these panels, I feel the paint is more vibrant since the ground doesn't soak up the oils in the paint. They do take longer to dry, and it has taken a little getting used to. 

Monitors vary greatly with how images look, if you have concerns, please contact me.

These small paintings are meant to be an accent piece either on a wall or table top.

"Nectarine Scan" Psalm 107:37 original oil painting 6x6

"Nectarine Scan" Psalm 107:37 
"And sow fields and plant vineyards, And gather a fruitful harvest."

I was thinking that still life paintings sometimes look as if they could have been painted hundreds of years ago, so I decided to include the barcode sticker on one of the nectarines. I wonder how long this practice will be in place.

Monitors vary greatly with their reproduction of color, this painting has more fresh colors than might be shown on your monitor.

"Invitation" 8x8 oil painting, newly painted of my paper series

"Invitation" 8X8 
Jeremiah 29:12  Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.

A backlit paper form that sits on a glossy black surface that reflects the form. Just interesting.
