Watercolor on 140 lb paper, 5.25" x 8"
Available at $15 plus $5 shipping.


A little sketch with pen and ink plus watercolor. The sky and water grey is very pale, with a touch of rose warmth in it. I do love this color, there's just something about grey.

Fall Hydrangea - SOLD

Fall Hydrangea
Oil on Wood Panel, 7" x 7"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.

Hard to admit, but I've forgotten how to paint! Yikes.
I wiped this one off about 4 times before I was able to get anything I even liked. And I know how to paint a hydrangea, or at least I thought I did. Just goes to show, that anyone can get rusty.

Thinking of getting some canvas panels, to see if that makes a difference.
Thanks for looking!

Fall Yellow Sketch

Fall Yellows Sketch
Oil on Wood Panel, 12" x 12"
Available at $25 plus $10 shipping.



I put aside my regular (small) brushes, and picked out the (almost) biggest brushes I had, and went to town on this one. So it necessarily sketchy and chunky, but I actually like it. Very loose.

Dusty Rose Rose

Oil on Wood Panel, 7" x 7"

Something a little different; a series of faces. Especially those which I think show a lot of interesting character. We'll see how it goes.

Georgia on My Mind
Oil on MDF Board, 14" x 14"

Really fun to paint so organically, with such soft shapes and lines.

Plum Stack - See 3/7/2019

Plum Stack
Oil on Wood Panel, 6" x 6"
Revised on 3/7/2019


I'm not sure how tasty these plums will be, they are really hard right now, probably picked before they were even close to ripe, but they sure are pretty for painting.

Red Onions, Palette Knife - SOLD


Red Onions, Palette Knife
Oil on Wood Panel, 5" x 7"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.



Sometimes it's just something different to try to apply paint with a palette knife. It necessarily (at least for me) comes out rougher than a smooth, blended study. But kind of cool too. It has its own appeal.

Large White Tulip - SOLD


Large White Tulip
Oil on MDF Board, 14" x 14"

Simple Sunset
Oil on Wood Panel, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $10 plus $10 shipping.



This is a revision of a piece I did in the workshop I took this summer. It was posted about a month ago under the name "Workshop Sunset", but I think this version is better, even as simple as it is.

Overcast Woodland Path - NA


Overcast Woodland Path
Oil on Wood Panel, 14" x 14"
Not Available, Revised on 3/8/2019.


I think this one turned out beautifully.
I'm fond of those blues and lavender colors in there.
It's been awhile since I did a "path" painting, so this one was really lovely to do.

Walking Path
Oil on Wood Panel, 12" x 16"
Revised on March 23, 2019


The photo reference for this one was almost perfect; 2/3 dark, 1/3 light, 2/3 cool and 1/3 warm, with an almost perfect placement of the focal point on the Golden Mean.

You gotta love when that happens.

Peachy Pair - NA

Peachy Pair
Oil on Wood Panel, 5" x 7"
Not Available, revised on 5/02/2019

Peaches - SOLD

Peaches
Oil on Wood Panel, 6" x 8"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.



Summer fruit has to include peaches, though these are from the grocery store, and will probably never ripen. Sure are pretty anyway.

Red Onions - SOLD

Red Onions
Oil on Hardboard Panel, 7" x 7"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.



My friend L. brought these very cool onions with long growing greens still attached. I cut them off when they started turning brown and dry, but so fun to have these nice long stems to add to the painting.

Single White Peony - SOLD

Single White Peony
Oil on Hard Board, 7" x 7"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.



This is my favorite of the peonies so far. It has some nice, subtle tones in it (which really don't show up much here.) More of a stylized approach today.

Thursday, August 16, 2018

Peonies Three - SOLD

Peonies Three
Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 8" x 10" x 1.5"
SOLD at $30 plus $10 shipping.




This attempt I went for a more yellowish cast in the front peonies.
A few more paintings, I might actually start to feel like I know what I'm doing, LOL.
This one wraps around, so no frame is needed.


Sunday, August 12, 2018

Peonies 2- SOLD

Peonies 2
Oil on Wood Panel, 8" x 10"

Another run with the peonies, and though these are more pink than yesterdays, I like them.
Still want to try the whites.

Saturday, August 11, 2018

Peonies One - SOLD

Peonies One
Oil on Wood Panel, 7" x 7"

I'm definitely going to try this technique again.

Big Fat Juicy...SOLD

Big Fat Juicy...
Oil on Wood Panel, 6" x 6"
SOLD


Bet you were thinking "steak" when you read the title. I did too, and thought "how interesting." Or maybe a hamburger. But our associations go to meat, I think. Yum.
But no, this one is just a big, fat, juicy tomato on grey cloth.
