America, Motherhood and Apple Pie, 36 x 30, oil on cradled board

This Trompe L’Oeil is a bit of a departure for me but so much fun! This homage to mothers has the Stars and Stripes created by Betsy Ross, the Mother of our flagAlso included are poster images of Mom as she was depicted during the first half of last century and little Apple Pies. Its completed with star shaped cookies just like mom used to make. Yum!

Sea Shell #3, oil on cradled board, 12 x 12

This is my third and last (for now) painting of this intriguing sea shell

Again, I chose a limited palette using only raw sienna, white and cadmium red.

I love the slight amount of pink in this one.
