May Apple with Trillium (2013), 8 x 10 in.

May Apple and Trillium are two of my favorite mid-western woodland wildflowers. I love how demure and unassuming they both are, and how you have to get down on their level to appreciate them. This is especially true in the case of the may apple which is usually hidden by an umbrella-like canopy of two giant leaves.

For sale at my Etsy site here.

My Billboard and Me

Here are a couple more pictures of my billboard in Urbana, Illinois...and me.  :-)  It was stunningly enormous when I was standing right under it!  At the time I took these photos, it was on Cunningham Ave. in Urbana, just south of the highway.

Commission: Field of Rapeseed, Lenham, Kent, UK (2013), 16 x 20 in.

This was a commissioned painting I completed recently.  When I saw the original photo, I just couldn't resist painting it.  This painting contained so much yellow; I used several for variation, straight out of the tube.  I did add some color gradation in the field (the green areas) to create a feeling of distance/depth--I wanted the field to seem huge!  It was also a pleasure to paint a larger canvas again.  I've been painting so many small scale works that I forgot how wonderful it is to fill a large canvas with color!  Click on the image above to see a slightly larger version of this painting.
