Peony

Peony - 11 x 14 - oil on canvas (top)
Peony - 12 x 16 - watercolor (bottom)

Indulging a new found passion for watercolor includes doing preliminary studies for all my florals. The top image is a glorious Peony, at bottom is the watercolor study. The oil version gave me more flexibility to be creative with the background.

Peonies are from the genus Paeonia, the only genus in the flowering plant family Paeoniaceae. They are native to Asia, southern Europe and western North America.

The peony is also named after Paeon, the Greek god of medicine and healing.
I hope to have several peony plants blooming someday in my flower bed.

Energy Company Acquires Three Wind Paintings

October Wind #3, 16 x 24, oil on panel (top)
Nine Canyon Wind, 12 x 16, oil on canvas (center)
Klondike Wind, 11 x 14, oil on panel (bottom)

I'm pleased to announce that an energy company has acquired three of my wind paintings.
Nine Canyon Wind and Klondike Wind are from my first series of wind paintings done in 2006 - 2009 and are featured in my book, Power of the Wind. October Wind #3 is from the second series which began in late 2009 and features turbines on the Washington side of the Columbia River gorge.

Thanks so much to Andy Perchlik at REimaginations. He does a wonderful job of promoting the beauty of windart.

If you are in the wind energy business, original windart is a beautiful way to decorate an office, board room or lobby. Please contact REimaginations to purchase or inquire about commissions.
