It's Damn Cold In the Attic

Landscapes are not really my "thing", but I thought I'd give it a try. I tend to lose patience on a subject that has a lot of complicated elements especially on a large (for me) canvas. This was done from a photo my dad took, somewhere in Ohio...maybe Milan?
I took this photo during a walk around our Port Washington (Long Island) neighborhood this past summer. Hydrangea is everywhere, and reminds me of my grandparents' gardens in Westbury. So, this one's for you, Dad, and I hope it makes you smile.
Don't you just want to pet that li'l bee with your pinky?

New Work

This is a pastel done from one of my favorite photos of one of my favorite cats, Twinkie, who is no longer with us. Neither is the bush.
This picture was taken on Sanibel Island. (Pastel)
Another from Sanibel. Wish I was there right now!
This lone bloom against the Long Island Sound background caught my eye...and captured the mood of the day.

I know, "Zoey" is a girl's name...but I like it...and Zoey likes it even though he's a boy. He told me. Anyway, he is the most intelligent, affectionate young man. He even used to retrieve before is right hind leg went lame...and is painful at times. It's only a matter of time before the left knee dislocates, as he still races around the house and causes all kind of kitty chaos. Any offers to help defray the cost of surgery will be greatly appreciated!!!
