September Squirrel, painting in oil

I could title this Fall in Canada where the squirrels are dashing about hanging from branches and scurrying up tree trunks gathering nuts and seeds.  A delight to see and paint with their fluffy tails and big black eyes, do they recognize me?  I titled this a painting to see it it would show up better on google, it is  oil on wood, 8×8″img_0140

Sweet Peas in the City, oil on canvas, 12×14″

Plein-air painting the last of the sweet peas.  There was construction both in front  of me and behind and I thought of Van Gogh alone in open fields as I painted in this city of relentless condo construction.  Still, the gardens flourish and these are the last of the sweet peas in August.image
