PRIMROSE oil on canvas 8x10

A little primrose plant in bloom in sunlight on a hand painted dish. I managed to keep it flowering all summer in the kitchen window. I finally over-watered it and now it's finished.

A FLOWER ON THE POND oil on canvas 8x10

I finally got around to painting the flower I saw floating on the pond at the New York Botanical Garden. It had been too many years since my last visit. What a beautiful oasis right in the middle of the Bronx.

WATERMELON FOR SALE 8 x 10 oil on canvas

There is a small market just off the corner near where my father lives in New York City. Early this summer I saw these watermelons, cut up, wrapped in plastic and ready to go in an open box on the sidewalk.
