Yesterday Once More

Nostalgia isn't always an easy hand to play when producing artwork. It seems so easy to go too far and  produce work that turns into nothing more than a cheap greeting card. For me creativity is an important component when doing paintings of this kind. Producing artwork of this nature is also a therapeutic process. It takes me back to those pleasant childhood memories.

I enjoyed painting this monopoly board.  We've had the board for over thirty years.  We along with our children played the game numerous times.  I've shown some of the wear in the painting.  The dog figure is very tarnished as you can see from the artwork.

Zinnia with Clouds

Our zinnia garden is in full bloom.  I saw this unique cloud pattern while in the garden the other day.  I photographed the cloud knowing it would work well with the flower.  I then combined the two photos to use as reference for this painting.

The reflections on the swan's feathers are my favorite part of this piece.
