My computer in the Studio is dead. My son is getting me a new one. It will take a little time to get it uploaded with my files. In the meantime I will put up older paintings that I have on this laptop that I use up in my house. This painting sold a number of years ago to a nice neighbor who was just walking by with his door and came in to see my art work.

I have a large mock orange bush/tree in our front yard. The fragrance is wonderful. So I painted just a small cutting from the tree. My studio smells great even with the wed dogs on the sofa.
