NY Stock Exchange

10"x8" oil on canvas
Another contribution to Karin Jurick's Different Strokes From Different Folks. This one was a little tough, I have never painted so many figures in one scene before -- but I wanted to challenge myself.

My studio companion

Just thought I'd include a photo of my studio companion, Sophie. She just naps away on that old chair while I work at my easel -- I'll often hear her snore, she's quite a little character.

Painted Saw

Oil on old saw
This was commissioned by one of my cousins. It is on an old saw she found in an antiques shop. The scene is of my parent's house in Healdsburg, California, which looks over the beautiful Dry Creek Valley. My dad designed it and did a great amount of the building of it on his own, all while battling liver cancer. My parents loved it there.

My wife got me an assortment of beautiful squash to paint and this is my first arrangement. I plan to do more.
