Iris in Lavender and Yellow Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I like working on stretched canvas, and I love the square format, so this one was just plain fun to paint. I think it's a good combination of swish and definition. Thanks for looking, and I hope you are all having a good weekend and avoiding the flu that's going about.

Sunny Shoreline Oil on Linen Panel, 11" x 14" Available at $65.00 plus shipping. The point of this particular painting was mixing grays. Is it grey or gray? Green gray and blue gray, with touches of warm, or touches of cool, even some purple and brown grays in the water. I was trying for the actual feeling of the shadowed trees in cool shade in the background contrasted against the glare of bright sun on the shore. Thanks for looking.

Orange and Purple Iris Watercolor on Strathmore 300 lb Watercolor Paper, 14" x 22" Sold at $85.00 plus shipping. This one is nice and bright, I love the combination of the purple and orange, fun to work with, really. This is an extra one that I had started last spring but not finished. I'm glad I took the time to complete it. Thanks for looking.

Pink Geranium Sketch Oil on Linen Board, 11" x 14" SOLD at sale price. I bought two little geraniums in pots at our local florist, Goldsmiths Nursery, simply because there wern't any tulips or daffodils to be had. I love the fact that in a small town, you can go in and browse, leave money and a note, and never see a shopkeeper. I started this as I would any oil painting, but I liked it so well as a sketch that I decided to leave it rough, and really didn't blend anything but the cast shadow a bit. Thanks for looking.

Petersham Pond Oil on Canvas Board, 12" x 16" Sold at $100.00 plus shipping. There were a couple of requests for this image, so I enjoyed painting it again today. This one is larger though (than the one from a couple of weeks back), and so I was able to fit in the overhanging tree and more background, which gives the little boat a nice environment, I think. Thanks for looking.

Distant Rain Oil on Canvas Board, 12" x 16" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. This one is noplace in particular. It started out because I wanted to use grey in the sky, and I also wanted to use some of the Elizabeth Tolley techniques and colors for the trees and water. Once you have sky, trees and water, you've got a composition and adding grasses gets the job done. Thanks for looking.
Marsh Morning Two (On Hold) Oil on Canvas Board, 12" x 16" Sold at $70.00 plus shipping. A repeat of the other day's painting. This one is a bit larger and I used more orange in the sunrise area on this one. It has a similar feel to it, but still a different painting. Done by request. Thanks for looking.

Peony Oil on Linen Panel, 9" x 12" SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping. Aren't you just eager for flowers, for growing things? This is from some photos I took a couple of years back in the neighbor's yard in Maryland. She grew wonderful peonies. Thanks for looking.
