Riverside - SOLD

Oil on Canvasboard, 9" x 12"
Sold at $40.00 plus shipping.

A gorgeous sunny day down by the water, and all I could really see (because there was so much to see) was a couple of bright spots of reflected water, an overhanging branch and spots of sunlit greens across the water. Thanks for looking.

After the Rain - SOLD

After the Rain,
Oil on Canvasboard, 16" x 20"
Sold at $50.00 plus shipping

This one is another redo of an earlier plein air painting posted on my sketching blog: It was done at Butler's Orchard with my painting class, and a few folks stayed to wait out the rain and paint afterwards. I had just bought a "slicker" and wanted to use it. The colors and the puddles appealed to me. This actually turned out quite differently than the original, but I like it just as much. Thanks for looking.

White Irises - SOLD

White Irises Watercolor and Pastel on Grey Watercolor Paper 25" x 19.5", all deckles intact, full sheet Sold at $50.00 plus shipping I went last night with a new acquaintance, Sarah Dyer, who is a fine watercolorist and teacher, to a meeting of The Massasoit Art Guild, link here:, and got to enjoy a pastel demo, which of course, made me want to get out my pastels. I had a "dog" watercolor on really nice grey paper, that never did quite "work" so I played over it with pastels today. It is so much better. It could also be cropped down, like one of the following, or into two matching sized pictures: Thanks for looking.

Gerber Two

Gerber Two Oil on Canvasboard, 6" x 8" Available at $25.00 plus shipping. These guys are harder to paint than you'd think. But this one turned out better than the last one, I think. I still want to try one more, to see if I can't get an image I really, really like. Thanks for looking.

Town in the Valley Two and Three - SOLD

Town in the Valley Two and Three 10" x 10", each at $30.00 plus shipping, Oil on Canvas Sold I did a painting a while back called Town in the Valley. Since it sold, two other folks asked for copies, and it was actually kind of lazy fun today to copy my own work as a photo. Thanks for looking.

Quiet Inlet -SOLD

Quiet Inlet 16" x 20", Oil on Stretched Canvas Sold at $50.00 plus shipping. I've been noticing the wonderful colors of the sky at sunset, the glow of yellow in the sky, and the beautiful almost turquoise color above. I wanted to play with these colors and this made-up landscape is what evolved. Thanks for looking.

Summer Field - SOLD

Summer Field 9" x 12", Oil on Canvasboard, Sold at $40.00 plus shipping. The sky was wild with clouds today, but they seemed to all be "over there." Where I was painting it was all about sunshine, the field and sky. I really like how the field and trees turned out on this little guy. Thanks for looking.


Suncatchers 10" x 10", Oil on Canvasboard, Available at $35.00 plus shipping. The old abandoned house again today, and the sunshine was creating spots of brightness on the leaves here and there. Splendid to be out and painting, just soaking in all the beauty of a summer day. Thanks for looking.
