Sunset Lakeside - SOLD

Sunset Lakeside
10" x 12"
Oil on Canvas Board
Sold at $40.00 plus shipping.
An oil version of the same photo as I used for the watercolor a few days back. The comparison is interesting, in that each medium has it's own joy. The watercolor is fairly unpredictable, but has a transparency and vibrancy I can't get with oils (at least not yet...). The oil gives me more control and forgiveness. Don't you love that little swish of "glow" in the water here? Thanks for looking.

Keep in Touch - SOLD

Keep in Touch 8" x 10" Oil on Canvas board Sold at $40.00 plus shipping. Playing with blue shadows today, some apples on blue paper with light behind and above them. I liked the way the apples were just touching. It might also have something to do with my wish to keep in touch with folks I've gotten close to as I plan a major move. Thanks for looking.

Dried Hydrangea Two - SOLD

Dried Hydrangea Two
10" x 12"
Oil on Canvas board.
This is the same stalk as yesterday's painting, done a little bigger and with pink paper underneath and behind it, to make a shadow. Once you shine a light on a dried hydrangea, it's amazing the colors you can see. More subtle than this, of course, but really there. This one is on hold for a day for Laurie. Thanks for looking.

Dried Hydrangea - SOLD

Dried Hydrangea 8" x 10" Oil on Canvas board Sold. There's something so appealing about hydrangeas, whether they are in bloom or dried. I have been wanting to try some paintings with less color, more monochromatic. And this one is the beginning of that direction. Very loose application of paint today. Thanks for looking.

Morning Farmland - SOLD

Morning Farmland
10.5" x 14"
Watercolor of Strathmore Gemini 300lb CP
Sold at $30.00 plus shipping.
Another watercolor this morning, with less fussing and more thought to the way watercolor works. That is, lay it down and leave it, let the paper and the water do their own thing. I like this one, done from a photo I took on a summer morning, on the way to the beach. Thanks for looking.

Intense Sky Watercolor - SOLD

Watercolor on Gemini 300lb CP Paper
14" x 10.5"
Sold at $30.00 plus shipping.
A quick detour into some watercolors tonight. Playing with brilliant colors, not exactly a delicate watercolor, but you can get some intensity with these pigments too. Thanks for looking.

Iris Profusion - SOLD

Iris Profusion 18" x 24" Oil on Stretched Canvas Sold.
Done from photos taken at my friend Jill's house this past spring. Irises are my absolute favorite flower, so showy and fragile at the same time. Thanks for looking.
