Sophie and Her Blue Mouse

14x11 inch oil on linen panel
Purchase Info

Another portrait of my beautiful Sophie! Though she is cross-eyed, she asked me not to paint her that way. I think she is adorable that way so my next painting of her is going to be a less dignified one. She loves her blue mouse and this one is a lot cleaner that the real one. In fact, hers is barely recognizable as a mouse!

Here's a photo of it framed. This painting is not for sale at this time but may be later in the year. I plan on putting it in a show in February 2019.

Portrait of Naila

20x16 inch oil on canvas
Purchase Info

Naila posed for one of my portrait classes this year.  She wore a traditional Pakistani outfit and it was so beautiful that I wish I had brought a larger canvas.

Apple Trio


9x12" oil on linen panel
Purchase Info

This painting was completed as part of an online course with Elizabeth Robbins. She is an absolutely wonderful teacher. We could use her still life setup photo or do our own. I chose to do my own even though my apples didn't have leaves! So I improvised with silk leaves and my imagination. I love the color harmony in this painting.
