The Triune

"The Triune" is 3"x4" Acrylic on Illustration Board

Triune means a collection of three things.  But only two of these boats have names.  All the time I was painting them, I was wondering what the third would be called.

"Shelled" is 2.25"x2.5" oil on clayboard

When I was in Florida this year, just like on those Pier 1 Import commercials, these shells were calling to me.  The sun was shooting prisms of color reflected off the glass surrounding them...color everywhere.  Who can resist painting shells when they call to you?


"Catty" is 2"x3" oil on Bristol Vellum

These carved cats were colorful and inspiring, and just begging for me to paint them.  I obliged.

"Dozing" is a 4"x6" acrylic painting on Crescent Watercolor Board

I saw these bulldozers set up to be snow plows, sitting in our neighborhood pool parking lot.  They are all dressed up and waiting to go to work on the winter snows.  Virginia had no snow this winter.  So they sat in the lot and "dozed" all the season.  On this particular morning, with the green grass and dappled sunlight, I felt so sorry for these sidelined workhorses!

After two years of blizzards that shut down D.C., I must say I was thrilled for the mild weather this year, though!

"Black Holes" is 5"x7" Acrylic on Watercolor Board

Black Holes.... They suck you in, and the next thing you know, an infinite amount of mass has collapsed on itself and you are caught in this gravitational pull.  It's a chain reaction that is all consuming and cannot be stopped.  Not at all unlike the pull of that case of doughnuts!!
