Winter 2012 - 13

Tin Cup and Funnel, oil on canvas (11" x 14")I remembered how the texture of paint and the smell of linseed oil and turpentine evokes memories of doing and making.  All sorts of nostalgia came flooding back as I started to work on the little painting behind the cup - it was a present to my Grandmother that I painted for her birthday over thirty years ago.

Winter Skulls and Pumpkins, oil on canvas (18" x 24")  Trying to articulate the space gets complicated - finding that marriage of paint and object, color and space, line and shape.

Punk'n Bunny, oil on canvas (18" x 24")  I would never have thought that this stuffed rabbit would provide so much painting material.  I have a lot of other plans but making time to paint between semesters ending and beginning is a challenge.
