A vertical painting: white flowers, glass tabletop...

Here's a photo of an oil painting I've pretty much finished working on for now, It's 2 feet high, and 1 foot wide (12 x 24 inches), unframed, drying on the easel (pardon the door and other belongings visible in the background). This painting depicts some white flowers with green leaves, in a glass bottle filled with white stones, on my sister's glass-topped white wicker kitchen table, in front of some shuttered closet doors, near a window. As usual, the image quality and size have been reduced for uploading purposes. I expect the next painting I work on will be smaller and more colorful.

Been painting George....


Here's a photo of an oil painting I've been working on, remembering a cat I had named George. It's 11 by 14 inches, unframed, still on the easel because it's not quite dry (the doorknob on the right, etc, in the background is part of the room the easel's in, although the bookcase and binders on the left are obviously part of the painting). As usual, the image quality and size have been reduced for uploading purposes.

Recently painted Riley portrait... :-)


Here's a photo of an oil painting portrait I recently finished of my cat Riley. It's 11 by 14 inches, unframed, still on the easel because it's not quite dry (anything in the background around the edges of the canvas is just a room the easel's in). As usual, the image quality and size have been reduced for uploading purposes.

Portrait of Shanna's Barry and his Magic Hat...


Here's a photo of an 11 by 14 oil portrait of Shanna's adopted American Eskimo dog named Barry, along with his magic hat. Shanna got this portrait by me for being the high bidder in an animal rescue fundraising auction.
I took this photo of it while it's still on the easel, unframed (the background stuff behind the canvas is just books, furniture, etc., in the room). After I framed it I did slightly touch up the hind paw. As usual, I've re-sized the image and adjusted the quality for uploading.

Painting on wood, 16x20....


Here's a 16 by 20 oil painting I did on wood, still unframed on the easel -- when I took the photo I couldn't avoid getting stuff from the room in the background. It's my depiction of a scene from the Asian garden behind (and part of) Boston's Museum of Fine Arts. My sister and I spent much enjoyable afternoon time sitting here. The street just beyond the garden is Park Drive -- and the front door of the building where I lived for about 16 years, until 1998.

Two 8 by 10 oils...


Here are two 8 by 10 oil paintings I finished that depict roses in my sister's yard.
These photos were taken on an easel while they were unframed (my signature was still wet), so there's stuff (furniture, books, etc.) in the background behind the canvases.
As usual, the image quality and size have been reduced for uploading purposes.

Still Life....




Here's a couple of photos of a 12 by 24 inch oil painting I did on canvas. It's called "Route 101 Barn Sale, Bedford, New Hampshire".
Because the painting isn't framed yet and the top half is much darker than the bottom, one of the pics is against a lighter background for clarity / visibility (except for all the stuff in the background of the easel and on the table / wall). As usual, the image quality and size have been reduced for uploading purposes....
