The Chrysanthemum Paintings, So Far

Here they are. Prices upon request at rcanaga@gmail.com, heading "Mums"

Painting for the City of Lebanon Library

This 70x80 oil painting"Red Earth", will be hung at the Library in the community room on Wednesday the 26th at 11:00. I am so happy to be able to give back to the town that raised me. The painting is dedicated to the class of '68.

A Vase a Day...

Doing this one a day paintings of the same subject using very different approaches reinforces what I always tell myself: Paint what you want to see, not what you see.



Developing a painting, Series I

I'll begin by saying how much fun I've had over the last three days painting the same still life over and over. Here is tonight's effort. About two more ten-minute sessions in the morning should do it.
