Sunday at the Beach

I'm trying to stay on track with my painting...quite a challenge. If I just didn't have to work and pay bills, taxes, etc...Oh well.
Anyway, I was back up at Lake Michigan recently and was agian inspired to do some small paintings. I love the Lake.
It was a breezy and somewhat cool day but the sun was out and it was absolutely beautiful.
This is a 5" x 7" oil on linen panel that I was inspired to create. This little boy was with his mom and dog, and was having the best time. It was fun just watching him have a great time.
If anyone is interested in this painting just let me know.

Mel O Cream Chocolate Glazed

Well, I am trying to get back to my painting, my 'paintings a day', as well as my blogging. These seem to be challenging tasks for me right now, but here I am...this is a start, again.

This is a lucious little chocolate glazed donut that somehow seems more impressive and important set on the fine china (Richelieu, sp???). It is a simple little morsel that is elevated by its presentation (not unlike people ??). This is an oil on canvas, 4" X 6", if you are interested in it let me know.

I'm going to wrap it up now.
