'Little White Frock' by RK Schlueter

5x7" acrylic
Lately I've been working in acrylics. They are very different from oil. I'm enjoying their quick dry time. It's challenging in a good way.

'Gladiolas - Side by Side' by Theresa Oats


Jim brought home these gladiolas for me several days ago.  I chose 2 small jars to place the stems in
and leaned them vertically side by side against a large easel.  I painted from life with oils on a  16x12 prepared panel.  I find gladiolas to be wonderfully engaging challenge.

'Rhododendrons and Cherry Blossoms' by Jim McVicker

I haven't posted in awhile but painting all the time. This is a recent small still life, 10x8, oil on linen panel. This time of year we have so much blossoming in our yard. It's nice to walk outside the studio with clippers in hand and head back to the studio with fresh flowers. Painted under the sky light.

'Chief' for CatConLA by RK Schlueter


Oil on 4x5" panel
I love graffiti, and I'm not going out there on the streets. I do it this way. There's no risk and I'm still excited, it may lack the edge...that's okay. This painting is going to CatConLA! Can't wait to see all the cat people!

"Curve in the Road" by Andrew Daniel

went back out to Blue Lake to add another layer of paint on this one yesterday. I think it's done. I was really focused on using loose, fast, spontaneous brushwork. I figure if I make a mistake, I can just paint over it so no loss. When there is this much variety in the brushwork and color, it allows me to adjust things in the painting to follow the paintings needs...
