Here are some shots of what I've been working on.
Above is a close up of a doll that I think will be playing a mandolin in a field of grass.
Below is a detail picture of a oil painting I've been working on.
I've never really painted water- that was tricky but I think I'm liking how this one is going.


and finally, this is Dakota, who keeps me company in the studio when there are no humans around.
