Sharon's Pond II

This was painted this morning alongside a small pond
in a neighborhood filled with large trees and wildlife.
Beautiful spot in the middle of the city of Tulsa.
Painted on gessoed masonite, 9" x 12".

Rose Garden, Woodward Park, Tulsa

This is an oil 8" x 10" on gessoed mdf board with an orange 
underpainting. I really have to pay attention to keeping
things "loose" but accurate and I'm afraid it got away
from me in a couple of areas. But when I left the garden,
it was 99.9% done. I did add a few of the roses and highlights
on the water after arriving home.
Nice day today. Wish I could do this every day.

My grand daughter. Her brother Will is next. As soon
as I finish his portrait, their cousin Claire will
follow. I don't do many portraits and they aren't easy
for me but these three grandchildren make it absolutely
necessary to at least try. They are the age that makes
it a challenge but fun.
