Zebras of a different color

11 x 14, acrylic on stretched canvas. You may have noticed that I like color in my paintings so I couldn't resist adding a little extra to the zebras.

Italian street

16 x 20, acrylic on canvas. 

Flower study

This is another 8 x 10, oil study done in black and white, couldn't tell you what kind of flower but I really like the way this one turned out.

Tulip

This is a black and white study of a tulip in oil, 8x 10
Black and white is difficult to paint in for me because I really like color in my pictures, but I thought I would give it a try.

Barn and tree

This is a 16 x 20 acrylic painting.  I have to say that the worst part of painting is naming the picture, I'm guessing you know that by now because of my scintillating painting titles. Sold.

Old barn

This is a watercolor painting with pen and ink.  It's a picture that I had for a while and wasn't happy with the colors, then I used Inktense water color pencils to up the intensity of the colors and it really brightened the picture up.
