Latest Paintings from Dr. McDonald
"First Day of Summer"
16" x 12"
Oil on Panel
When I first saw this scene, I was captivated by the color of the flowers. After I began painting, I became fascinated with the warm and cool shadows and their soft and hard edges. This painting is now in my own stable. It will stay in the family until I paint a new favorite. I like to live with my work for a while. I continue to learn as I critique what I have completed. Hopefully, in the future, I will be able to paint this one better. It is a continuous learning curve as I continue to learn from other artists who are miles ahead of me.

McDonald Oil Painting: "Garden Party"
"Garden Party" is the latest "fresh paint" from my easel. The mother was gracious and let me take pictures of the little girls having a tea party in the garden. I love the reflected light on the little girls face and the bright sun on the clothes.
