Watercolor of Paper, 22" x 30"
Another full sheet watercolor, done carefully petal by petal, leaf by leaf. Probably why I don't do more of these, since they take so long to do. It's hard to visualize the size by this small photo, but imagine a yard stick, and cut off 6", you'll have an idea of the length. It's a good size painting.
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"
Available at $20.00 plus shipping.
This one is done as a step-by-step from the Elizabeth Tolley book, Oil Painter;s Solution Book. Sometimes it's nice just to follow along. The price simply reflects materials.

SOLD at $130.00, includes shipping.
Bad news floating around, people loosing jobs, feeling the stress and worry of this tough economy, lots of folks not being able to afford food, worried about loosing their homes....we all need some hope right now. Something about the fresh light of morning, sunlight catching on distant farm buildings, says hope to me.
It's been awhile since I've done one that I really love. This one works, I'm so pleased with it. It gives me hope too.

Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10"
SOLD at $35.00 plus shipping.
My sunflowers are about to die, so I wanted to do one more painting with them. They really didn't last long, must have been old already when I got them. This one is very thick and swishy. I would even describe it as "scrappy."
It has thick, loose strokes of color.
