Spring Painting

Motivated by the first blooming flowers after a long winter, it was great to get outside and work without three jackets on.  

Forsythia, 12 x 12", oil on canvas

As I was finishing this up, I observed someone talking on their cell phone; I liked how his belly matched the sky.

View of Carpenter's Woods, 10 x 10", oil on canvas

Here, I was as much intrigued by the first hints of spring in the foreground as I was by the view of Carpenter's Woods in the background. 

Painting Along Cobb's Creek, 16 x 20", oil on linen

It was fun to paint not only a beautiful spot along Cobb's Creek, but to include my friend, painter Alexandra Tyng, in the piece.
