If You Like Pina Colada, nude, Oil on Cavas

"If you like pinacoladas and getting caught in the rain!" What a very bright painting! Eye candy. A nude red haired woman in the glass of Pina Colada appears to be showering herself in the rain -- under the orange cloud. Around the glass, there are orange butterfly wings...This is a Summer painting of pleasure and delight.

Not finished yet; wings still need feathers, but I really like the composition. This is an older painting.

Golden Sunset - Oils on cradled hardboard

This a very bright painting, with a sense of glow, where the lit parts stand out even in the darkness. Look for all sorts of shapes in the clouds! Since this is a digital photo of an actual, still-wet painting, this image desires to be reproduced better - the colors are still brilliant but on the photo are much darker than in reality; and yet when I brightened it in Photoshop the photo has become washed out, losing most of it's rich orange and mahogany colors; in a week or two I will try to scan it. Here is a good example of a direct, one sitting painting. Since I don't use any mediums or chemical dryers I will let the painting dry on its own and then will apply another layer of transparent yellows and oranges and will perform minor adjustments, and then sign it. This is number 9 in my Liquid Creations series, which is all about drinks and where they take me. I think this is the brightest painting I've done so far.

Pomegranate Bliss, 8x10 Oil on Canvas

Everyone knows that both pomegranates and wine are good for your heart -- in fact, they are so loaded with antioxidants, they are called "a miracle drug for aging". I see a lot of cheer in the darkness and richness of shadows, this velvety darkness adds a mystery to the painting. The brightly lit sides contribute to the"singing colour" and create a simple, yet subtle beauty with an internal glow . The three seeds of the pomegranate contrast beautifully with the white of a tablecloth. They look delicious even from up here. The canvas was specially primed and sanded to an eggshell smooth surface, thus a superior handling of the paint. There are quite a few glazes that helped me achieve this glow, and it took about 8 hours to complete this painting.
