The series of 5″x5″ oil paintings continues. Delightful to paint in series, which can either stop or continue, as the fancy dictates.

Another of the series of West Virginia wildflowers, created after several fine days of botanizing in the mountain woods, filled with fabulous wildflowers, only to be seen by those who know where to look.

Lots of new work, and way behind in putting them online, like this 18"x24" watercolor of Hellebores.

Delphiniums
