Bowl with Avocados on Stripes Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 12" SOLD at $85.00 plus shipping. I really didn't think I would ever be done with this one, the stripes took forever to paint. Okay, maybe not forever, but the better part of yesterday. I really am happy with the way this one turned out, and I'm glad I chose the avocados for in the bowl, since I really didn't want the focus on the contents of the bowl, but on the bowl itself. I also like the way the light plays on the fabric.

The Light Beyond Oil on Gesso Board, 9" x 12" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. I am working on a larger piece with stripes again, and wanted to take a bit of a break from it. So decided to do a fast landscape, and what was meant to be a "quick and dirty little painting" turned into a fairly detailed piece. Probably because I was working on the Gessoboard, which can take detail easily. I like the feeling in this one.

Onion Perched, Revised Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" Available at $30.00 plus shipping. With the help of some of my readers, offering suggestions, and after just looking at this painting for awhile, I went rough and loose on it, and revised the whole thing. The colors work much better, the background was yellow before.

Oil on Canvas Panel, 5" x 7"
Frame measures 7.75" x 9.75"
SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping.
While hunting for an older painting (never did find it) yesterday, I came across this little frame that I'd picked up at a frame shop sale. Thought I'd paint something to go inside it. As you can see from the middle photo, the inside corner edges don't quite match up because of the irregular pattern, but it isn't really noticeable (see bottom photo.) Add a couple of tiny tacks to hold the painting in, a wire for the back, and you've got a nice little completed piece (or maybe a Christmas gift.)

Red Glass with Onions Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" Available at $50.00 plus shipping. This one was a challenge, and I'm not completely happy with it, but at this point it's about the best I can do. The glass turned out glassy, but the red light through the glass, shining on the onion in the back just wouldn't be identified. I kept squinting and guessing, but the color just wasn't clear to me. Overall, though, I'm satisfied with it.

Lemons in Blue Pottery Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. This will be the last of the lemon paintings for a bit. I have so much enjoyed doing them. The bowl is by potter Beverly Halpert, and is one of my treasures. Thanks for looking.

Lemons with Leaves Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8" SOLD at $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping. I think in the small sizes, the 8" x 8" size might be my favorite. There is just enough room to move, but not so much room that you have to flounder to fill it. I like this one, also of the lemons, leaves now drying up, from the backyard.
