Paragon Park Carousel Horse 24"x36"

This is a painting of one of the horses at our beloved local carousel, a remnant from the former "Paragon Park" amusement park at Nantasket Beach. The horses and carousel have been lovingly maintained and definitely prompt a smile.

Figure Study 24"x30"

It was kind of cold and I was ready to settle in for the evening but I packed my paints, easel, and canvas and headed for a figure painting session. Glad I did. She was a great model and I love painting with other painters from life. I will need to go back and paint more models.

Field of Honor II

I started painting this at the annual "Field of Honor" in Cohasset, Massachusetts in May, 2013, was unable to finish it and put it away, then pulled it out a couple of months ago and completed it. The actual scene appears to have about 1,000 flags and is quite moving.

"Greasy Spoon" 6"x6"

Our "Girls Just Wanna Paint" challenge for May was the theme "Delicious." I immediately thought of an awesome diner that I go to but I took it down a peg to "greasy spoon" status for the purpose of this painting...I love these kinds of places...often the food is good and no pretenses. Just easy.
