Gerber One 9" x 12", Oil on Canvas Sold at $40.00 plus shipping. This was a complicated but fun painting to do. I'm calling it Gerber One, becasue I'm going to use this plant again. The color of the flowers and shapes of the leaves are just beautiful. Thanks for looking.
The Hairdresser's Place 9" x 12", Oil on Canvasboard Sold at $40.00 plus shipping. Just past the remodeled house where my daughter's hairdresser does business is a picnic turn-in along the water, and I was tickled that you could see the house from the shoreline. Not many strip malls in the country. It was overcast and the breeze kept blowing the refections away, so I tried to show how silvery the sky and water were. Thanks for looking.

Mama and Baby 9" x 12", Oil on Canvas board Sold at $35.00 plus shipping. I got permission to paint on one of the local dairy farms today, Carter and Stevens Farm right here in Barre. They also have a lovely little country store, where they sell fresh milk and ice cream (which I've heard is quite wonderful.) So I painted cows, next visit maybe some of the cool barns. This mama and baby were separated from the herd, so I had a nice close view of them (although they didn't want to stay in the same spot for long.) The next painting is of the herd grazing. Thanks for looking.
Stevens Cows in the Pasure 10" x 10", Oil on Canvasboard Sold at $35.00 plus shipping. Behind one of the barns, looking down into one of the pastures. Sunshine, blue sky, and the swoop and sounds of barn swallows. Thanks for looking.

Lawn Chairs 10" x 10" Oil on Canvasboard, sold at $45.00 plus shipping This is such a cozy image that I'll probably take some pictures and do it again. Sitting in the backyard, looking across at the neighbors yard (and they are nice folks who don't mind that I rearranged their lawn furniture to paint.) New size canvas board as well, since RayMar will cut to order. Thanks for looking.

Curve in the Road 12" x 16", Oil on Canvas board Sold at $50.00 plus shipping. I've done a small version of this most appealing subject already, but wanted to try it again. I really love the high contrast of coming around a shady bend in the road into strong sunlight. Thanks for looking.

Purple Iris Pen & Ink with Watercolor 11" x 15" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping Detail included This is a little different from my other watercolors. I did a tight pen and ink drawing first, and then a loose watercolor over top. It had less "sculpting" than my normal watercolors. This plant is almost done blooming, but it has been a beauty. Thanks for looking.

Iris on Clayboard 9" x 12" Watercolor on Clayboard Sold at 20.00 plus shipping. My last piece of clayboard, and I really am trying to like it. It scrubs well, it sprays well, it takes color well, but it just doesn't feel right for blending. I think it might be good for washy landscapes. What do you think of this one? Thanks for looking.
