Final painting for the Red show. This is a new take on a photograph I've painted from before. I like the juxtaposition of the red hips against the abstract background. Choosing which part of the rose bush to focus on and which hips to include in the painting was a large part of the fun with this one.
Another for the Red show at Columbia Art Gallery in Hood River, Oregon. I enjoyed pushing the contrasts in this one. I'm looking forward to seeing other artists' interpretations of the red theme.
One of three paintings that will be in the Red show at the Columbia Art Gallery during February. It's been a real challenge to find time to paint since my 5-month-old son has been getting mobile, but the red theme has been a helpful inspiration. I'm thinking of child-gating part of my studio so he can play in there while I paint.
