Rehoboth Beach

Rehoboth Beach

oil on panel

I’ve never been to Rehoboth Beach. In fact, I didn’t even know where it was until after I painted it (it’s in Delaware). This is a painting I created for Karin Jurick’s new blog “Different Strokes from Different Folks.” Karin is a great artist and her success on eBay is a real inspiration to me. On her newest blog she posts a weekly photo and invites anyone to submit a painting inspired by the photo.

Goldfish

4 x 6 inches
oil on panel

This is a painting of my goldfish. The amazing thing about this goldfish is that it was entirely black when I bought it. Months later over a period of a week or two it turned into gold! After I finished the painting I thought about how a dark background, fading to black would have made it look more traditional. But I like the lighter background, it’s more fun.
