"Beach House II" shown outside and in my library. 54" x 60" is very large - I could barely get it up the stairs from my studio. It took forever to get the right shade of yellow, and I'm really loving how it turned out.

I know it's a little hard to see, but the blue paint is actually a mosaic of the reversed side of a latter color. I work in layers, and I wasn't entirely happy with the bottom part of the painting, so I scraped it off. The back side of the dried paint was much more intriguing, so I flipped the pieces over and stuck them back on, giving that section of the canvas a significantly different look and texture than the rest.
This one was a lot of fun to make, but the oils took forever to dry!

It's always fun to see just how big a 7' canvas is in reality. This one is currently brightening up my living room, with a 50" plasma tv for scale. I love the bright colors!
"Where the Water Lilies Grow" was chosen for the Angad Art Hotel's 2021 biennial. Building the frame for this was a fun challenge, and this is a good way to see how large a 48x60 canvas really is!
