New still life featuring Marigolds, Zinnia's and Dahlia's from my garden in an antique vase with a small painting of a woman in an oval and side handles that are lucifer's face. The smaller vase has rose hips and on the other side a bottle of tequila from Judith Starchild.
I just finished these two paintings for twin sisters. The paintings measure 36 x 48 and feature a floral and peacock theme.
The painting features Dahlia's and branches from a Crepe Myrtle tree. The peaches are also from the garden. The vase is a malachite with nudes and the bright yellow Chinese opium jar really pops. To the side is a Murano glass peacock.
The Blue Hibiscus is from my garden. The Tiger Lily lives outside the gate so the cats don't eat them. The peacock is an old Czech light that is broken and beautiful. The pitcher has peacock eyes and the glass vase has peacock blue crystals.
This painting was painted en plein air. You can tell by the sand showing in the oil paint. Painted when I was last in Laguna. The summer of 2019 when I did the Sawdust Festival. This was painted with my old gallery mate, Jim Wodark.
The turret in Victoria Beach was my favorite spot as a teenager. Next to the turret is a rock pool built to fill with ocean water at high tide providing a wonderful place to swim.
Persimmons and Zinnia's from the garden. The garden and painting go hand in hand. This is my world.
I am trying to keep busy in the studio but the state of the world is on my mind. And everyone's mind. Don't lose hope or faith. This time next year is what I am living for. I want to meet my granddaughter Nova and watch her grow up. So, I am staying home and isolating now.
It's hard to paint when there is no audience. I am used to my booth at the Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach. I miss talking to people all summer and painting throughout the year. We are all adrift.
