Heinz Cocktail Sauce

This painting was one of my favorites. I just love the warm tones and rich red color in the cocktail sauce bottle. I guess I can't seem to escape my fascination with these still lifes.

Three Danish Pastry Still Life

I couldn't pass up painting these three danish pastries. This composition - which extends to the sides, is a contemporary still life that depicts a rather interesting design - if you like pastries. The painting utilizes a rather free and in places impasto type painting technique to create an expressive style.

Tomato - Olives and Family Still Life

This composition fills every corner of panel. I painted this still life arrangement using thin transparent layers of color and built up the tonal quality to create a rather intense and almost hyper real image. The tomato slices steal the show!

Donuts by the Dozen

This painting is larger than most of my other paintings (16 x 20) and was fun to paint. I felt like painting a variety of donuts and the arranging them in this composition. I thought is was a sweet idea.

Olives Still Life II

This painting is of two olives immersed in oil on a dish. I particular enjoy the high level of shine and reflection in this composition. The painting is painted on a smooth masonite surface to enhance the transparency.

1957 Chevy Auto/Landscape Painting

This painting is a rather interesting composition of a red 1957 Chevy. The angle is taken from ground level and is dramatically highlighted by the dark imposing sky - which is a painting within a painting.

Vintage Slinky Toy Dog

This painting was fun to paint. If you enjoy old vintage toys and slinky dog toys - this one is for you. This little painting is only 3.5 by 7 inches but packed with fun. The digital image does serve this painting well.
