Summerfall - Howdy Doody- oil painting


Summerfall is another of my contemporary realism oil paintings, 30″ x 36″, featuring my vintage toys and ceramics. The main figure is the Indian Princess marionette, Winterspring Summerfall, from the Howdy Doody television show. Also included is a vintage scarf, a chalk figure (the kind you used to be able to win at carnivals) and a mule from an 1800’s mechanical toy.

Cordial Cherry


This painting is 9″ x 12″, oil on masonite. I don’t know if I wanted to simply capture the beauty of the cordial cherry or if I was just looking for an excuse to buy myself a box of chocolates! Yum!

This weeks painting - Coffee and Strawberries


This is the oil painting I just finished. Coffee and Strawberries is 24" x 18" on canvas. The coffee pot is a 19th century family  heirloom which has been past down to me.  I chose this subject because I like painting reflections in silver.

This painting can be purchased at the Salon International exhibit
