Moving towards abstractions, I'm working on a series of birds.

This image is painted on a wood panel that has been primed with two coats of gesso, then one coat of lead oil ground. Painting on wood panes dates back centuries, but is a new and wonderful experience for me. If the painting is a failure, it can be sanded down when dry, then recoated with lead oil ground, and, viola, a new painting surface.

This week, Monday Morning Painters was invited once again to Truett-Hurst Winery, and I selected these red chairs at the back of the winery to paint, with the sound of Dry Creek flowing in the background. Yes, I did put the umbrella in the exact center of the painting, but I think the red chairs offset my compositional error.
