Barre Farmer's Market - SOLD

Barre Farmer's Market
9" x 12"
Oil on Canvasboard
Sold at $40.00 plus shipping.
Sitting at the Farmer's Market today, on the Barre town green (commons) enjoying the summer day, and I finally got up the nerve to paint (in public.) The trick with painting in a busy place is figuring out what to include, what to ignore. So many details, so much to see. As a first attempt, I like this. Imagine if I did this all summer? Thanks for looking.

Purple Iris with Buds - SOLD

Purple Iris with Buds Watercolor on Arches 300 lb paper (rough) 14" x 23" Sold at $100.00, shipping included
Another huge iris plant, purple this time, and so generous with its blooms. This one bent over from its own weight and broke, so is finishing out its beauty in a glass jar. I hope to be able to paint it again tomorrow, time permitting. This is a large painting, good for a big wall space. Thanks for looking.

Glowing Light Pond - SOLD

Glowing Light at the Pond 16" x 20" Oil on Canvasboard, detail shown Sold at $65.00 plus shipping When I drove past this little pond in South Barre the other evening, the light was just catching the tops of the trees, so I had to stop and shoot a few photos. I really liked the orange glow on the trunks and branches, and brown earth had become sienna. I really am enjoyng all the little ponds and creeks around the area. Thanks for looking.

The various colors of green is what interested me here. Later in the afternoon, and the sun over the tops of the trees and the long lawn shadows gave a cool end-of-day feeling to this painting. Thanks for looking.
