"Geraniums in the Cottage"

"Geraniums in the Cottage"
oil, 8x8

Red geraniums have been one of my all time favorites to paint. This piece was in my
thoughts and had to paint it. Sometimes remembering what I have seen before.

What started the old window scene, we were staying at a cottage in Carmel,
the window in the kitchen was looking out at the beautiful landscape
with a window box full of red geraniums in front of the window. I have been
  painting them ever since.

oil, 8x10

I am always asked about my geranium paintings, so I thought I
would do some more of them.
When doing a painting I am always changing the composition
until it feels right. Maybe a flower shouldn't be there or
moved. Every painting is always a challenge from the
beginning to the end but that's what makes it so much fun.
