Oil On Pine Panel
It’s funny. I have walked by this Pampas Grass at hundreds of times, but this one day I had a feeling to photograph the little sparrows picking the seeds. Good thing I did, because the next day it was completely demolished along with about an acre of old growth trees, bushes and flowers, for a new housing development. You never know where inspiration is going to come from.

My little baby Koala and his Mom are completed, and will be glazed Wednesday. Ready to ship by next Tuesday. This painting is very colorful and brilliant. I wanted to convey the colors of the Eucalyptus tree. In Southern California there are thousands of Eucalyptus trees, and if you have ever stood under one, you might have seen purple, green and violet colors in the leaves. The bark is facinating the way it swirls and sheds in the summer.
The baby Koala lives in it’s mother’s pouch for five months and is blind when it is born. Koalas live to be around 20 years old, and primarily live on the East Coast of Australia. I hope you enjoy…This painting is currently available for bid on Ebay. Click on the photo to link to the auction.
“The Hunt” is a painting I am currently in the process of completing in the next day or so. It is of a Leopard coming from behind the bushes, and getting ready to pounce on his prey. I will admit, the spots, the position of this animal, and the leering look on his face have all been a very big challenge. Stay tuned, this painting should be completed by Friday.
You know, when you get an idea for a painting, it is very hard to sit still, concentrate or do anything else but think about that painting. In this case, I’ve been thinking about painting my lemon tree for about two years. It’s good to know, what I saw then, turned out the way I wanted, even after all of this time. I hope you enjoy this, it was a pleasure and loads of fun to paint. Especially because I could use my photos, and go out to my yard and see the real thing.

When you hit a creative block…Just keep going. Eventually you will rise above it, get out of it, break your creative ceiling!! In theory it’s supposed to work anyway! In this case I’m not exactly thrilled with this piece, but it has served a purpose in helping me break through and keep going in the creative process….Like Nike says “Just Do It”!!
