Florals Featured!

Elizabeth Steinbaugh, owner of Aurora Gallery in Vancouver, is featuring two of my floral paintings in her March Spring exhibit. Also pictured above is a watercolor by Vicki Nelson and an oil by Bev Jozwiak.

This painting was inspired by a John Salminen DVD I watched with art friends. His focus on a strong abstract concept and keeping the light pattern interesting, unexpected, and oblique helped me decide how to place and paint the white alstroemeiria flowers.

Yellow Iris
24 x 18

This painting was done plein air at Schreiner's Iris Gardens in Salem, Oregon. I set up my easel in a less-traveled part of the garden and painted these sunlight-filled blooms.

If you're in the neighborhood, I hope you'll stop in and see my work in person.
