Two cherries 105


oil on canvas panel - 6" x 6" (15 cm x 15 cm)

I don't know if it's the cherries or the complementary colors but this little painting reminds me of an other time, a more raw and sincere time.  Love the way they hang from the nail.

Apple 103


oil on canvas panel - 6" x 6" (15 cm x 15 cm)

I really like this apple.  I stare at it from the moment I painted it and I would keep it at home if I didn't believe that every little painting has a life of its own and a place somewhere else it belongs.

Moonlight 99


oil on stretched canvas painted around its sides - 8.4" x 5.9" (21 cm x 14.5 cm)

It's the first romantic fantasy I've ever done.  A snail on a branch watching the full moon into the night.  The moon is huge according to the snail, the night is quiet and smells grass and loneliness.  The snail is fascinated by the mesmerizing power of the moon on him and absorbs the moment in quiet stillness.  I just love it!

Cherry 98

In the middle 97


oil on stretched canvas - 8.4" x 5.9" (21 cm x 14.5 cm)

I wanted to paint this small painting for a long time.  The yellows are my favorites and going into the flower made it abstract in some way.  It's like diving in a sea of sunlight.  It rests the eye and makes me happy.  The colors are brighter than they look in the photo.

Ladybug cocooning 89


oil on canvas panel
10.2" x 7.2" (25.7 cm x 18.2 cm)

As everybody knows about me, I love ladybugs.  This insect conquers many of my small paintings just because.  When I saw this photo, I just had to paint it.  I couldn't live without hugging in a painting this couple of ladybugs that cocoon in a dried leaf.
