Halloween Rose Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10"x 10" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. Okay, it's not a pumpkin. I tried pumpkins and I don't really do them well, so here's a rose interior, with touches of orange and pink. Happy Halloween, everyone! And thanks, MG, for the use of the photo from your garden.

Brush Play Landscape
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $30.00 plus $5.00 shipping.
I am more and more enamored of brush work, what you can do with it. Today I took a bristle brush, which I don't generally use, and just went at an imaginary landscape, swishing paint. I love the texture of thick paint, don't you? I am also intrigued with the lovely grays you can mix, so this one is pretty much high key with lots of gray.

Red Passion Hydrangeas 3 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 9" x 12" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. This is my last experiment with the Red Passion Hydrangeas. I think this will be the way I'll handle the larger painting. I sat down and actually drew these out tight on the canvas, sprayed the drawing with fixative, and painted loosely. This way I'll have a choice on a large canvas whether to go realistic in spots and loose in others. I like it, plan to do about five blooms on the larger painting.

Shiny Red Pears Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 16" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I am actually very happy with the folds of the drapery on this one. The pears, too, but the drape is the success story on this one. Maybe a little more darkness under the right pear, which I can fix, but otherwise, it's pretty okay.

Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 6" x 6", by 1.5"

After the large painting yesterday, I felt like something sweet and manageable today. Hence this elegant and simple red pear. Sides are painted extensions, no framing needed.

Double Magnolias Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 24" x 24" SOLD at $225.00 plus shipping. This one is really big. This is actually the first time I've seen it, since it's so big that when I worked on it yesterday and today, I really couldn't "see" it, it's too big to see it up close. I'm glad it turned out as well as it did! The wrap will be painted in the blue green, muted tones of the background. The edges to the wall are 1.5" in depth. No framing needed. Thanks for looking.
