Grumpy Bunny #30 - Betty White, oil, 6x6

I couldn't help myself. I painted Betty White, Chelsea's rabbit, once again.

Grumpy Bunny #29, Stella!, oil, 6x6

Georgia is my beautiful foster rabbit. She goes to her new home on Saturday. I wanted to do this study of her before I paint a large picture of her. She is so regal. Georgia has big, dark doe eyes.
Georgia came back from her new home because she was chasing and attacking the dog at her new home. Georgia doesn't like or tolerate dogs. She knows it is either her or them.
So, now that Georgia is back with me I am keeping her! She is the most amazing rabbit. I love her spunk! So, I have renamed her. She is now Stella Artois.... STELLA!

Eggs and Stripes, oil, 8x10

I continue to paint eggs (compliments of Chelsea's chickens, Ethel/Ginger/Agnes) in different poises. Practice, practice. In this painting I tried for looser and more painterly strokes; a more relaxed style. The eggs and stripes are not as refined as in the previous paintings.

Left on Foothills Rd., oil, 18x24

This is a painting of Lake Oswego's main street, State Street. Just past the railroad tracks heading south is the intersection of State Street and Foothills Rd. That is the view in this painting last October. The trees were firey red.
