Tomato Medley
Oil on MDF Panel, 7" x 7"
SOLD.

Yes, I have some tomatoes: Heirloom, I think; Cherry and Roma.
I'm not sure about the grey lavender background, but I'll do some more of these lovelies tomorrow. Maybe try a different color.

Light Play


Light Play
Oil on Hardboard, 12" x 12"
Available at $20 plus $12 shipping.

Still playing with light effects, though no sunset today.
I'm pricing this one cheap, since I'm in need of paper goods (TP, Viva, laundry soap) and you can't go far without those!

Simple Marsh Sunset
Oil on Hardboard, 8" x 8"

Continuing with the sunset series, this one is setting over marsh grasses.
Smaller was indeed easier today, plus I got to go to the grocery store, a nice monthly treat!
Thanks to my good neighbor, B.

Summer Sunset

Summer Sunset
Oil on Hardboard, 14" x 14"
Available at $100 plus $15 shipping.



After several days of work on this guy, I can say I'm pleased with it.
Mostly inspired by Sara's Workshop. The thrill remains, in site of everything else going on.
What do you say to a whole series of sunset paintings?

Workshop Sunset

Workshop Sunset
Oil on Hardboard, 8" x 10"
Available at $35 plus $10 shipping.



Last week Wednesday and Thursday I was able (thru a gracious scholarship from River Arts) to take a workshop with Sara Linda Poly. If you've never seen her work, you are in for a treat. It's just beautiful. Beyond that, she is a wonderful, caring and generous teacher with a good dose of fun and inspiration thrown in. We had a lovely time, and I came away refreshed and eager to try some new techniques and apply some new insights. Met some wonderful local women artists, a bonus!

So here's a painting I did during the workshop, with one of Sara's reference photos, which she allowed me to keep. I'm pretty happy with it. Doesn't it have a nice "feeling" to it?

I found some wonderful, lumpy, bumpy Packham pears at the organic food store the other day. They'll probably show up in an oil within the next coupld of days, but for now, here's a small watercolor.

July Sky - SOLD

July Sky

Just a little sky study for today.
I did a lot of running around, so something simple was in order.

Summer Slice

Summer Slice
Oil on Har board, 7" x 7"
Available at $20 plus $10 shipping.



It's been too hot here to do much of anything outside. Downright brutal. I feel for and greatly respect those folks...construction workers, mailmen and women, road repair persons, farm folk, anyone who HAS to work outdoors in this heat. Whew! Hats off!

Citrus Medley - SOLD

Citrus Medley
Oil on Hardboard, 6" x 8"

Summer Stream

Summer Stream, Palette Knife
Oils on Hardboard, 14" x 14"
Available at $45 plus $15 shipping.



On this one the board is fairly heavy, so I'm asking a bit more for shipping.
It was definitely a topsy turvy palette knife, wild painting day.
But then sometimes those days happen, right?
A brush was simply too tame today.

Lemons with Pewter Candlestick - NA

Lemons with Pewter Candlestick
Oil on Hardboard, 6" x 6"
Not Available


The candlestick has a fun history. It was originally given by my Mom and Dad to my cousin as a wedding gift; the cousin whom I just visited in Georgia. She gave it to me for fun and to paint. I do remember my folks giving pewter and using pewter at home in the 60's, musta been an "in" thing at the time.

Lemon with Strawberries - NA

 Lemons and Strawberries
Oil on Hard Board, 6" x 6"
Not Available


Quick on the berries, before I slice them up for dessert!
Figured I'd better make some use of them besides gobbling.

Lake Sunset - SOLD

Lake Sunset
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.


This is just an imaginary place, inspired by the lovely orange and yellow skies I can see peeking thru the trees, when I sit on my little back porch. I just wanted to play with those colors in a sky, and summer makes me want water...lakes, streams, rivers, oceans...all manner of waters.

Lemons and Limes - SOLD

Lemons and Limes
Oil on Hardboard, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.



While away, I got some lovely new fabrics (from my cousins' "potential stash") and this one wanted to be under the lemons and limes. Looks good, don't you think?

Yellow Iris Heart - SOLD

Yellow Iris Heart
Oil on Hard Board, 12" x 12"

I love these colors together, and this one was just plain fun to paint. No struggle at all.
Such a treat, when that happens.

Early Light - SOLD

Early Light
Oil on Hard Board, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.



This is the third time I've painted on this one, and I think it's as beautiful as I can make it. I won't revise it any further. It has a wonderful sense of light. It's also as cheap as I can offer it, so someone will be lucky!

Georgia Peaches in Georgia

Georgia Peaches in Georgia
Watercolor on 300 lb Arches Paper, Paper Size" 11" x 15"
Image Size: 9" x 10"
Available at $40 plus $10 shipping.



These peaches may well be from somewhere else, but because we are in Georgia and they were bought in and happily being devoured in Georgia, we'll say they are delicious Georgia peaches (although not quite as good as the Eastern Shore peaches.) Several of these guys got into a fruit salad tonight for supper. So yummy! On my cousin's pretty red plate.

Early Sunlight - NA

Early Sunlight
Oil on Hardboard, 11" x 14"
Not Available, revised and sold


This is a revised version of a previous painting which didn't sell, called Dappled Spring. I liked it very much, but it needed a refresher and some softening. I've also lowered the price some.

PLEASE NOTE: This one will not be shipping until the end of June, as I will be away.
Thanks for your patience.
