String of Lights 4 Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD. I had a request for two of these, which never got shown on the blog, so I thought I'd pop one of them up today. Nice to show off a little, I know you'll indulge me. Nothing new today. I have posted some more Metro sketches on my sketching blog, the link is on the sidebar.

Winter Snow...More Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $35.00 plus shipping. We've had another snowstorm, and still drifting. The world is white, with shades of umber and grey, just lovely, as long as you have power and heat inside and don't have to go anywhere.
Cows in Landscape Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12" SOLD at $30.00 plus shipping. There are many blogs and sites that one can use for resources. I'm thinking of the Different Strokes project by Karin Jurick. This one is from The Monthly Sketch Project blog, which I just recently discovered through a mention by someone in Kate Johnson's alumni group. I really liked the photo, and moved some cows around for this quick oil sketch.

Watercolor on Arches paper, 22" x 30"
Image area 21" x 28"
SOLD at $150 plus shipping. Detail shown.
That's a lot of petals. Painted on a full sheet of watercolor paper, mostly during our snowstorm of February 2010 in the DC area. I've cropped the top version, but it can be matted in closer still.

Watercolor on Full Sheet arches 140 lb paper, 22" x 30"
I generally don't show a work in progress, but this one has so many shivery hours into it, that I wanted to at least show that I have been working through our snow storm! A petal here, turn, a petal there, turn... I think I might paint some background color along one bottom edge, and add more leaves, but this is how it stands now. It's a big one.
And It Snowed... Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $35.00 plus shipping. No heat, no lights, no Internet, no radio or TV for news...and no hot water, except what we could boil on the gas stove. Nobody going anywhere, and lots of busy shovels. Huddled under blankets and using candles when the evening came. Makes you appreciate your electricity when it comes back on. I did manage to bundle up, turn my easel to the window, and paint this (with trips to the stove for heating fingers over the boiling water pots.) Today, of course (Monday) it's gorgeous, but it sure gets old quick, trying to stay warm. A pioneer I am not!
