Turquoise vase and cottage roses - Acrylic painting

Another flower painting from my garden. I cut some sweet peas and cottage roses from the garden this week. I wanted to paint the cottage roses before it withered away.

Here is my setup..


Here is the finished painting, 12 X 12 canvas with acrylic done mainly with palette knife.


Lone Kayak at Trillium lake - Acrylic


From our road trip to Oregon and Washington last summer. When things get hectic here, all I can ever think of are the beautiful places we have visited and painting them. Reliving my visit to Trillium lake through this painting. 8x 8 canvas with acrylic.


Here is a little WIP of the painting


Delphiniums and Foxgloves - Plein air painting

Hello, Sorry I have been MIA from the blog. I have been painting and sharing updates on Facebook page whenever I can, but keeping up with all of my social media is becoming a chore these days :).

Here is a plein air painting done from my backyard couple of weeks ago. Delphiniums and Foxgloves were in full bloom and I couldn't resist painting them. Done on a 12 X 12 canvas with acrylic.



And here is my set up from the garden.

Magnolias - Acrylic Painting

Bitten by the spring bug yet again. Magnolia's are everywhere. Last week when I was returning from a grocery run and spotted them couple of blocks away from home. I knew it wouldn't be long before they carpet the ground. Took some reference pictures which inspired this painting. Done on a 6 X 6 canvas.

Garden Daffies - Acrylic Painting

Daffodils freshly cut from garden. They looked fabulous in the green bottle. I was positioning them in different spots. Accidentally left them on my colorful macbook case and that settled the location :). Done on a 8 X 8 canvas.

Here is a setup of the flowers from my garden.

Sugar and Spice - Acrylic Painting

Camellias are usually the first flowers to bloom in my spring garden. I cut some some pink and red ones and set them up in vase. It is hard not to paint them or stop at one painting. Done on a 8 X 8 canvas.


Here is a collage of my WIP.

Grand Prismatic - An Acrylic Painting



It was a very chaotic January here and working on this painting was the only thing that kept me sane. I found myself picking up the brush every free moment that I got. Relived my visit to Yellowstone and felt I was painting this standing on the steep hill from where I took the photo from. Can't wait to go back.


It was quite a process to transfer that painting that was floating in my head to the canvas. Here is a little WIP video of the painting. Done on a 40 X 30 Canvas with Acrylic.

New showing @ William Arthur Gallery, Carmel Valley

William Arthur Gallery in Carmel Valley Village is the new home for some of my paintings.  Dropped off my paintings yesterday and drove around this quaint little town. Very different and much sunnier than the touristy Carmel-By-the-Sea side. The gallery itself is on village square amidst other galleries and stores. Such fun to walk around. If you are in the area, please do stop by.
