Paintings available through Eastern Shore Art Association, Fairhope, AL

Through the Eastern Shore Art Association, I have placed seven of my restaurant scenes for sale at Tamara's Downtown in Fairhope, AL This is one of them. The scene is from a restaurant in California.
I hope to soon take some photos at Tamara's! People have asked me if any of my restaurant scenes are local and I have to admit that I do not usually have my camera with me when I dine out locally-But I will work on that! Hope to go to Tamara's soon for her great food and great atmosphere!

Getting Ready for a cold snap

Taylor and I recently returned from a trip to San Francisco and Healdsburg, CA and as usual had a wonderful wining and dining experience. Today, I am working on photos I took at restaurants and wineries so I can begin some new restaurant scene paintings.
But first, here is a little painting from yesterday.
Having a cup of tea before going out to pick the last of my satsumas.
Expecting a hard freeze tonight.

Today I started sending out postcards announcing my blog.
Is anyone out there?
Since my website is under reconstruction, I decided to post some extra paintings here. Let me know if anyone is interested in viewing more paintings from a particular series.

I cannot go long without getting my fix of painting scenes of the Mobile Delta. I did three of these scenes last week. Today it was back to the still life!
