Brookside Cottage - SOLD

Brookside Cottage, Amherst Massachusetts
Watercolor on 300 lb Cold Press Strathmore Gemini
9.5" x 12.5"
Sold at $30.00 plus shipping
My friend Barbara will recognize this little cottage, which is tucked into the woods along a path through Amethyst Brook conversation area, just a charming little house. I took photos on my last visit there, walking with B, and have always intended to do a small painting. I had to do this twice to get a decent watercolor. They are tricky and always have a mind of their own. Thanks for looking.

Vine Tomatoes
6" x 8"
Oil on Canvas board

I decided on a small painting today, so I'd have a little more time for other things. And it looks like maybe BLT's for lunch tomorrow, if I don't decide to try these guys again. Thanks for looking.

Morning Silhouettes - SOLD

Morning Silhouettes
Oil on Stretched Canvas
11" x 14"
Sold at $50.00 plus shipping.
Another comparison painting, done from the same photo as the watercolor from a few days ago. Again, more control and forgiveness, but less transparency and magic. I do like the colors here very much, and the feel of the light just catching the clouds and trees. Thanks for looking.

Sweet Lady

Today I attempted a person. Something I have been shying away from for awhile, except in drawing. But this sweet, dear lady was kind enough to allow me a photo last summer in front of the Dutch Market in Burtonsville. I loved the hat, and the little fanny pack. She was very classy, white stockings, sandals, a nice floral skirt. So here she is, and I do want to paint her again. The face was the hardest part, and although it doesn't look exactly like her, I did get her pleasant expression. Detail of her face included. Thanks for looking. Oil on Gessoed Masonite 13.5" x 14" Available at $75.00 plus shipping.
