Lemons, Roughly - SOLD

Lemons, Roughly
Oil on Hardboard, 6" x 8"
SOLD at $24 plus $10 shipping.
( $  .50 per square inch)



This was uncomfortable, but I really want to be able to paint loose, so....
Big brush (okay, I cheated a little, just a bit) and only a little blending, concentrating on value and color, and holding myself back (mostly) from fussing. The idea is that from across a room, the details don't matter, only the shapes and values. So, if you sit back in your chair about three feet, don't they "read" lemons?

Here's a close up shot.

Three and a Slice for Tea - SOLD

Three and a Slice for Tea
Oil on Gessoed Hardboard, 4.75" x 10"
SOLD at $23.00 plus $10 shipping.
( $  .50 per square inch)



OK, this one was supposed to be very loose, so I started out with a large brush, and we were rolling along nice and sketchy, until I realized that there were some drawing mistakes. Then things got tighter, tighter, tighter, until I am painting in my usual style. So hard to break from habits. Now I know I have to start out with a very accurate drawing in order to really get loose. Sounds like a contradiction, doesn't it? I'll try it and let you know.

Zinnias with Celosia

SOLD at $40 plus $10 shipping.

So my flowers from the Farmer's Market are almost completely faded, I made two vases into one this morning, and decided that I'd better get them painted while I still could. I'm pretty happy with this little guy. The little glass vase was a gift from my dear cousin (thanks, B!)

Two Toned Pepper

Two Toned Pepper
Oil on Gessoed Hardboard, 6" x 6"
Available at $18 plus $10 shipping.
( $ .50 per square inch)






The peppers from yesterday were just so neat, it would have been a shame not to paint them twice. Now they can go to the neighbor for her stuffed peppers. She had admired them when I bought them, mentioned that they'd make good stuffed peppers.

Combo Peppers - SOLD

Combo Peppers
Oil on Hardboard, 10" x 10"
SOLD at $50 plus $10 shipping



Another fun find from the Farmer's Market (can you say that five times fast?)
The farmer said that they start out green, and turn red in the sunshine. I couldn't resist, even though I had just bought a bouquet, which you'll see later this week.

Meanwhile, I am in denial.
Summer is NOT almost over. Summer is NOT almost over. Summer is NOT almost over.
