Apple Wedges Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $30.00 plus shipping. Changes and variations are sometime subtle. Today I noticed a slight change in the way I'm doing my brushwork. I like it, I'm pushing paint around with the brush as much as stroking it. Neat. I know, very slight difference, but it's those tiny increments that move us in a new direction.

Chintz Paintings 3, and 4
Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 6" x 6"
Wrap of 1.5", pattern extended.
SOLD at $80.00 the set plus shipping.
Another set of Chintz fabric paintings. These have a wrap of 1 and 1/2" and are intended to be hung without framing. The pattern is extended around all four sides, though I expect some of it won't show in the hanging. Tricky to handle wet paintings to paint their edges, but I wanted to use the colors while I had them mixed.

Chintz Paintings 1 and 2
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 6" x 6" with .5" wrap, painted in the dark color
SOLD the set at $70.00 plus shipping.
This is the first set of two of either Cretonne or Chintz fabric painting. One of my collectors sent me an arm chair cover of this fabric, and I'm having fun making up paintings to match it. The next set will have a 1.5" wrap, so no framing will be needed. On to the next set.

Goldens Posing Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 16" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. The lemons fit on my little stand better than these guys, but since I had the canvas, I thought I'd give them a whirl. They didn't turn out as interesting as the wonderfully colored Seckel pears, but still neat to paint.

October Turning Trees
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping.
Even though I had scheduled more requests today, it is one of those absolutely glorious fall days, pure blue sky, sunshine, warm, but crisp. Ahhh. So I went outdoors and found these trees just past the cut-through that I've painted before. Beautiful to sit outside and paint, especially now that I've had some recent plein air time. It really isn't so much about the painting today, as just having an excuse to be out in the beauty of it all.
Blue Apples 2 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. There was more response to my silly blue apples than I had imagined, and one of my collectors requested a redo, so this one is for her. These are blatantly blue, but same idea, playing with values, not colors.

Floral Blues, Hydrangeas Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. Little by little, I am catching up on some of my requests. Of course, I do the easier ones first, so here's another hydrangea painting done on request. If you are waiting for a painting, I'm getting there!

Deep Sienna Iris Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 16" SOLD at $125.00, includes shipping. I was doing a small iris this morning for a commission, and just kept on going, with this lovely dramatic iris. I've used the photo before, and every once in awhile, a big old iris is just what I want to paint.
