"Cousins," by Alicia Tredway

This is an early watercolor of two of my granddaughters who have children themselves now.  Sometimes I look at older work and like it better than where I'm at now.  It might be time to change mediums for a while.

"Autumn Blossom" by Theresa Oats

This rose appeared on our Westerland rose bush after we thought it's season for producing blossoms had passed.  I love painting the exuberant colors this variety of rose produces on each blossom.
I worked on a 7x5 inch wood panel with oils.

We found this rose bush at Fickle Hill Old Rose Nursery in Arcata California.

"Leah And Her Magic" oil by RK Schlueter

Oil on 10" canvas.
Leah is my daughter in-law, and surely one of the most wonderful women on the planet. Married to my awesome son Blake. They both create food art. Dining at their home is an experience you never forget. Whatever they cook up is art and tastes like a masterpiece. Leah is known for her off the charts custom wedding cakes. She is head baker at Ramone's.

'OTTO' by Theres Oats

'OTTO ' painted in my studio 2003
oil on canvas

Curtis Otto was a terrific artist and and strong 'personality'.  When you ran into him, he would instantly 'talk art'.  Never the weather, the state of his health, or the price of gas. His entire home was a studio and show space. Come to think of it, he often utilized his front yard in the same manner.
If he saw you (wether he knew you or not) walking down the sidewalk, he would likely ask for your opinion about the painting he was working on. He loved hearing the opinions of others
and often tried their ideas.  I always enjoyed these qualities in him.
He will be missed by many.

"Otto" oil by Rachel K Schlueter

Oil on 8" panel.
Remembering Curtis is easy, he sure had color. He definitely had the juice! I loved his work and friendship. He tirelessly enjoyed the topic of painting and inspired so many artists. E street will not be the same without his work hanging and dangling outside, come rain or come shine. "Otto" was painted many years ago and Scooped up by Jim and Sherry Gandee. See the updated Facebook page for: Curtis Otto
Thank you for visiting!

'Forrest Tree in September' by Theresa Oats

This tree is located on a friend's property.   The crotchety shapes of the branches combined with the 
contrast of the fresh luminous green leaves are what inspired me to paint this subject.

"Here Kitty" oil by RK Schlueter

Oil on 16x20" canvas.
I took the photo for this painting ten or so years ago. I used to walk around the city of Eureka looking for cats to photo and then paint from.  It was a wonderful experience, every cat either wanted to say hi or did not. And of course some ran away. What struck me about the process was cats I had never met before, would lavish their attention on me. It was clear they were happy to visit and have my attention lavished on them. I swear some even posed, like this one, tail up and straight toward me. I always felt extremely grateful for their compliance.
