Watercolor Floral with Frame, Watercolor and Gouache on Paper Watercolor Size: 11.75" x 16" Frame Outside Size: 22" x 26" SOLD at $100.00, including frame, shipping additional. My friend and gallery owner Marilyn Klevit gave me this frame some years back. She thought I might find a use for it. It's amazing the things you find when you unpack, right? So I did this watercolor and gouache to go in the frame. Of course there would be a mat or a double mat between the piece and the frame, but I set them together to show the colors. The frame is wooden, with a painted matte surface, and it has a bit of an Italian flavor to it. I think it should go to a nice home. Thanks for looking.

Bright Hibiscus Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 18" SOLD at $100 plus shipping. My first hibiscus, and they are fun to do, all that lovely bright paint, and all that nice soft brush blending. We have a new one on the patio, which I promised my daughter to buy from her when I sold a painting of it. We are having fun learning new plants here. Thanks for looking.

View form the Carport Oil on Gesso Board, 8" x 10" Available at $30.00 plus shipping. Attached to the garage/studio is a car port where the lawn tactor and assorted large yard tools live, along with extra lawn chairs and such. A nice place to sit in the shade and look across the yards of the neighbors. Yes, I took out the swing set. Thanks for looking.

Calladium Watercolor on 140 lb Strathmore Gemini Paper, 13" x 17" Available at $40.00 plus shipping. Along one of the walls of the house, in the back by the pool, is a bed of calladium and impatients. These are just so appealing, though I know they are pretty common in the South. My first plein air painting here, sitting outside in the bed, taking lots of breaks to cool off. Thanks for looking.

Peony Dreams Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. The AC in my studio makes it really nice and quiet, cool and private. I wasn't quite finished thinking about peonies, so I sat in the coolness and used a photo taken in Maryland at my Mom's neighbors' garden (Frances). This turned out to be more about colors and patterns than the actual flower, but I do like it. Thanks for looking.

Louisiana Sky One Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $30.00 plus shipping. My first Louisiana painting had to be of the sky. This area is wonderfully flat, so the skies are big, and we've had really cool thunderstorms rolling through every day since we arrived. I have a feeling there will be lots of sky paintings. There are also lots of cows! That surprised me, I guess I never thought of cows in the South, not sure why. (So I put some in.) Space to breathe, geckos, armadillos crossing the yard, dragonflies as big as small birds...agapanthus, birds of paradise, calladium...this will be fun! Thanks for looking, while I continue to unpack and organize.
