Notes from the Studio in April

Studio time has been a bit limited lately because of my teaching schedule, but I managed to make a little progress on a few of my 20"x20" pieces.  See this post from March, where I started a group of pieces in acrylic and drawing media, then switched to oils.  These two are still in process:

This is where I left off in March.

And this is where the piece landed.  I'll leave if for a while and see if it wants more attention or tweaking.

Detail shot of the above.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Beautiful pieces. So interesting to see how you work and develop them.

  2. Isn't it exciting to go back to work on an unfinished painting and bring it closer to completion. Love the contrast of softness in the first painting and bold strength in the second.

  3. Amazing sense of balance and colour comes through in all your work - just love it!! It is gorgeous - lifts my day every time I visit your site!! Cheers and thanks!!

  4. Hello Jane, I love your video's! Such an inspiration! Thank you verry much!

  5. Jane, we used to have a cabin on Whidbey Island, and Coupeville was such a fun place to visit, eat and shop. I'm so glad you get to enjoy it for a bit!


I have had some spam comments lately, advertising of stupid stuff. So I am moderating comments until I can figure out a better way to prevent spam. THANKS!
