Oma's Pink Glads Watercolor on Arches paper 12" x 23" Frame size 17.5" x 28.5" Sold. Bid on Painting here. This is a watercolor of pink gladiolas which I did for my Mom some years back. The glass broke and the matting was sheared in places. I am including the wood frame in the auction on ebay. New glass and matting will have to be purchased, but the frame goes really well with the watercolor, has touches of pink and off white in it. Detail of the painting and a small photo of a section of the frame are included. Thanks for looking.

Purple Iris Dreams detail shown Full Sheet 22" x 30" Watercolor on 300 lb Arches rough Watercolor Paper Available as an ebay auction, 3 days, starting price $75.00 plus shipping. This is a large watercolor of iris impressions. I would say that it is semi-realistic, not a botanical, but carefully rendered. My daughter tells me that people are in the mood for spring, color, flowers, and to cool it with the winter scenes already. LOL, she's probably right. This one could be done in a floating frame, all the deckles are intact and could be shown. I'm trying something different with this one, and have put it on ebay as a three day auction. I haven't learned yet how to do the simple links, so bear with me, and here's the long version. http://cm.ebay.com/cm/ck/1065-29296-2357-0?uid=128011575&site=0&ver=LCA080805&item=320103562705&lk=URL Thanks for looking.

White Boat Waiting Oil on Canvas board 16" x 20" Sold at $50.00 plus shipping. Rain and sleet today in New England, so I stayed inside and did a study from photos of the beaver pond, with the little white boat that didn't get into the painting yesterday. While you miss the directness of painting outdoors (and I freely admit that I've a long ways to go before I'm a real plein air artist), you can take your time in the studio, and no wind to blow your easel over. Thanks for looking, and I join you in a respectful good bye to Kurt Vonnegut today.

Oil on Canvas board
16" x 20"
SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping.
A sunny day, and warm enough for awhile to head down to the beautiful little beaver pond on my daughter's road. I'm not sure if it has a name, but we'll call it Wauwinet Pond. From here I could look over my shoulder to see the silo and farm from yesterday. What a spot to paint! Spring colors are starting to happen. This one is a little bigger, since I'm out of smaller panels for the moment. Thanks for looking.

Doray Pines 12" x 16" Oil on Canvas board Sold at $30.00 plus shipping. My Mass native daughter laughed at me today in her backyard, bundled up in 2 shirts, a fleece jacket and a winter coat, neck warmer and hat. "Mom," she says, "it's not THAT cold out!" But to me, sitting in the wind, it felt cold enough. There was, however, sunshine and blue sky, so we are on our way. A study of the backyard pines. Thanks for looking.
