    This beautiful silver container has been sitting on my props shelf for some time. At one point it became a place to store these blown out organic eggs. I would notice from time to time how appealing this container might be in a future still life arrangement. Things evolved from there - adding a pair of European Goldfinchs then a nest, the twins, additional eggs including quail and candy ones.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
