Woman in Black - oil on canvas - 18x24"

I took a picture of a friend of mine long time ago. She belongs to a networking group that was encouraging me to start painting. I love Lynn's sense of style and inextinguishable zest for life. It was fun to challenge myself with a portrait. There is always so much more to learn.

Palm Trees - oil on canvas - 30x24"

Palm trees always remind me how lucky I am to live where I live. And how much I like ocean and warm weather and sound of palm fronds in the wind. I took this picture of view from the restaurant window in La Jolla and painted it to always remind me of the smell of the ocean and the sound of waves and palm trees.

Reaching - oil on panel - 12x16"

The whole painting started as an attempt for abstract painting and as I said before, I have to have some connection to reality. I wanted to communicate, that I am reaching and trying to streach myself and my perceptions, but I still hold onto reality. Who knows where will this reaching take me.

Prague Castle - oil on canvas - 18x24"

I was going for color and simplified shapes. I don't really think I will ever get to pure abstract painting, but I love to play with pushing the reality a bit. Clouds, water, and color can be so much fun.
