In the Garden

Pen and ink and watercolor.  Question is - should I do this as a large oil or paint more birds?

Girl at the Window

Latest large oil painting - 36"x36" on stretched canvas.  Mendocino ocean, Greek windows, and a very altered Amber portrait.  I got creative with the shadow.

Gold and Green Self Portrait

#3 of 6 attempts at Self Portrait.  Each one looks like a different person with some resemblance to myself.  This effort was supposed to be an abstract but, for some reason, a picture insisted on emerging of a more youthful me.  Mixed media (acrylic, Schmincke Bronze pigment, ink, watercolor and oil on marble dust gesso on birch board) 8x10
