In Her Room



Spring Bloom
8 x 10 inches
Oil on wood panel.

After five days of painting and tiling in the basement, I needed to get back to art. I decided to do a quick painting of a nude lady in her room. It took around an hour to do and I really enjoyed the fast work. I like the way the room seems to vibrate around her, in celebration of her loveliness.

I was walking one morning and spotted this fruit tree glowing in the brilliant sunshine.

Notting Hill Lady


Notting Hill Lady
5x7 inches
Oil on Masonite



This is a fashionable young woman walking up Portobello Road, one morning, in the Notting Hill section of London. I was actually taking a photo of my daughter, and later realized this lady in the background, would make an interesting image.

The Wrong Kind of Painting

I have been doing a lot of painting lately, unfortunately, it has been the wall, doors, and woodwork kind. Our daughters have fled the nest, and we are in the process of redoing our basement, or as we like to call it, the lower level luxury suite, in the Brauker Towers.

I hope to be able to start my oil painting again in a couple of days, until then, I will be posting some paintings that I did the last couple of weeks, but haven't had time to upload yet.

This painting was based on a photograph by David Spencer, a terrific photographer based in Massachusetts. David graciously allowed me to use his wonderful shot as inspiration for this painting. It is Popham Beach, Maine. See David's web site here: http://www.davidspencerphoto.com/
