This is a park near my apartment, it's nice to have nature so close. I loved adding the sages with that pleasant plum color, rainy days are so moody but in a delightful way.

Juicy Fruit

Juicy Fruit 7" x 5" oil on masonite

I absolutely love that pink rose color, reminds me of bubblegum, especially juxtaposed against the robin egg blue. Recently I found out that watermelons have neat little swirls in the fruit, I like it when nature has organic patterns.

Orvieto

Orvieto 6" x 6" oil on masonite

This is a picture from when I studied abroad in Rome, we took a day trip to Orvieto in southwest Umbria.  This clock tower sits across from the main square next to Duomo di Orvieto, I sketched from the site to get this composition. I like clock towers, the time is indicated twice, on the face of the clock and with the sunlight.
