Dad I'm stuck! oils 8 x 10

Dad I'm Stuck

In fact, she has a flat and needs me to come and fetch her.
That's what Dads are for. We worry about her riding in traffic on her bicycle and
 we'll drop everything to come and fetch, bundling her bicycle in my van.
You understand my feeling ..

Frog on green grass 2022

Frog on green grass

Acrylic 4" x 6" $220 Canadian dollars 

email ronjbw@gmail dot com

Studio paint - tubes and bottles, loose and spontaneous, no problem - see how fluid the frog looks,
and the colors are right here in my taboret here in my studio, no searching!

I relax when I can find my paints at my fingertips - they are kept right next to me in my desk of drawers  - what I call my TABORET. Usually, I keep a set of oils in a separate box for painting outside, en Plein air. This time the acrylic paints are right next to me. Great fun,
