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

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

One single cherry hangs in the air in a plain green background.  The very red cherry and the very green background just clicked in me.  Simple yet lovely.  I really want to eat this juicy cherry...

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.

Abstract flower 95

16" x 12" (40 cm x 30 cm) - oil on stretched canvas painted around its sides

After many florals, an abstract one.  I love going inside the microcosm and paint flower close ups and insects.  This one touched an other parallel universe of florals. :)

Pink flowers 93

24" x 12" (60 cm x 30 cm) - oil on canvas
Two pink flowers, one on top of the other, none of them whole.  I am still mesmerized by the petals and the shadows.

A game between red and white with a glimse of yellow.  I don't know the name of the flower but I loved the way the light falls on it and the subtle shadows.

Fruit ladybug 91

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

A ladybug checking its fruit or just standing on it to admire the view of the rest of its world.  It's a colorful painting that makes the eye happy.  The original is a lot better than the photo.

Inside 90

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

Microcosm inspires and thrills me.  In my imagination whole worlds inhabit inside the very small that deserves our attention and admiration.  I've painted a lot of flower close up paintings.  This one with the curling petal is one of my favorites.

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.
