Path in Morning Light

The amazing light on the dead, fern-covered tree in the back attracted me to this scene. The very early sun rays reflected in the yellow glow of the ski and the blue/pink shades on the ground reflected for me that special early morning feeling... stepping on dew drops, walking into spider webs...... oh yeah, Halloween is around the corner!!!

Harvest Duo

Squash and pumpkin for a harvest still life. I loved the color reflections that showed up on the dark green.

Persimmon Trio

Painting a still life, I usually stand pretty close to the set-up, focusing on the subject. For this one I stepped way back. It really helped to ignore details, put emphasis on colors and include more of the surroundings.
