KMD2427 Hen in Turquoise (Chickens, hens, landscape, China, animals)

I found this scene while on my trip to China in the ancient village of Zhouzhuang, an ancient water city that is called the “Venice of China”.
We spent over 3 hours in this amazing village with a plethora of painting and photographic subject matter. My travel companion Pat was amazed at how many pictures I shot of this one scene with roosters and hens, but the light was perfect and I had to get every angle!
Although hens and roosters aren't my usual fare, when I saw this hen surrounded by the colorful background I had to put it on canvas!

KMD2426 View from City Park (landscape, sunset, urban, oil painting)

I have had this painting in mind for many years. I was plein air painting at City Park here in Denver one fall afternoon when a passerby offered to send me a picture he had taken with his new panoramic camera (film of course, so this tells how long I have held on to the picture). It was such a kind gesture and I regret that I don't have his name to thank him again and let him see what I created from his picture!

KMD2424 Pretty in Pink

As the days grow colder and shorter I seem to be drawn to the colors and warmth of summer! The rose is one of my most favorite flowers (second to the poppy of course!)
I am always drawn not only to colorful flowers but love fragrant flowers as well.
This is a quote that sums up the heavenly fragrances of flowers for me:
"To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat".

KM2420 The Red Barn (landscape oil painting)

Here is another plein air painting done last fall. I went to Prospect Park in Lakewood, Colorado on a hot, sunny morning with artists Anita Mosher and Wes Hyde. I usually paint the creek that goes through the park but most of the trees had been decimated by a serious tornado several weeks before we went. Luckily, this nostalgic barn remained untouched and a lovely sight to paint.

KM2423 Summer Hibiscus (Floral, garden, landscape oil painting)

I painted this scene last August in Washington Park near our studio with my fellow painter Anita Mosher.
I have been inspired to do more plein air painting as I love the time to be outdoors and one with my subject.
Of course, I am a "Fair Weather" painter and only enjoy painting outdoors when the temperature is comfortable, not too many bugs or wind!
I was amazed to find Hibiscus growing in Colorado, they are a different variety from what I have known in the tropics.

KMD2422 Fall's Last Hurrah (original oil painting, landscape, fall scene)

I came across this picture while attempting to get organized at the studio. I have wanted to paint this colorful scene from the Botanic Gardens here in Denver for some time now. I was drawn to the bright contrasts of yellow orange fall trees whose leaves are turning to the purple late blooming flowers. It feels so warm since our outside temperature at the moment is 20 degrees!
