The Umbrella tells a story of longing. The Umbrella is left unfurled, it is not leaning against the wall,… just thrown on the ground.  Maybe the umbrella is hers, the color gives it away…

The Dallas Arboretum

I have been planning to paint this statue for a while at the Dallas Arboretum.  Finally got around to it. Oil on Linen Panel, size 6″x8″.

I have started doing value sketches, before starting a painting. I highly recommend it, to get a feel for color notes.  They don’t have to be perfect, just quick and dirty to get a feel for what you are going to do.  Here is one for the above painting.

Neighbour’s Car

This is all in Gouache…  I have been seeing this car for the past 2 years in our neighborhood.  I don’t know the model and the make of the car, atleast I was not able to find it on the car?  If you do let me know.  Thanks and Enjoy!

The first plane left, fortunately another plane came in its place so I was able to complete this.  This was the second plane, taxi-ing off.
