Red Passion Hydrangea Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I have a commission for a large painting with these flowers. (I got mine at Michaels. ) So I'm playing around here with ideas for how best to paint them. It's good to experiment, but I'm still not quite sure how I'll do a large painting with them. Maybe petal by petal?

First Touch of Fall Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 16" SOLD at $100.00 plus shipping. I had this one that didn't sell, called The Cut Through. I was sitting outside and looking at the same scene this morning, and noticed that some of the colors are just starting to change, so I played some more with it, and now I like it. I added loads of warms and cools, some spots of changing leaf color, but mostly kept the same basic shapes. It just seems richer and more interesting now.

Garlic Flower Oil on Stretched Canvas, 6" x 6" SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping. I found some garlic in the fridge, popped them in a bowl, and am relearning how to paint. I pointed the stems all inward, and it looks a bit like a flower to me, hence the name.

Delaware Dreaming Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Home in Maryland, but I can't quite let the lovely time at Quillens go. So here's a quick little piece, done mostly with palette knife. I have also forgotten how to paint, so this small one is a way to "get back into it."
