Into the Light - SOLD

Into the Light Oil on Canvas board, 9" x 12" Sold at $45.00 plus shipping. I like this one. Playing with the idea of light shining out from clouds, and the sky starting to show blue again, and also trying to think in terms of mass instead of leaves, or cornstalks or what have you. It's a pleasant and successful little piece, I think. Thanks for looking.

Pink Purses - SOLD

Pink Purses Oil on Canvas board, 8" x 10" Sold at $35.00 plus shipping. Practice with people. These two ladies were in the Barre Farmer's Market painting, but I wanted to try them again on a smaller piece. I love the sunshine on them, and the fact that they were carrying matching pink purses. Maybe they got them at a craft fair together? Fun to speculate. Thanks for looking.

Road to the Hayfield - SOLD

Road to the Hayfield 10" x 12", Oil on Linen board Sold at $45.00 plus shipping. First I drove right on into the field, but the grass came up to the car door, and I was scared about "snakes in the grass", so I parked here instead, and fought with the mosquitoes for the shade. Bug spray is a plein air painter's best friend sometimes. (My daughter makes a really good one, called "Bug Away" which is available at her website.) Thanks for looking.

Scrappy Sunset - SOLD

Scrappy Sunset Oil on Canvas mounted on board 6.25" x 12" Sold at $25.00 plus shipping. Using up more scraps, and enjoying playing with clouds and colors. I like the little ray of light shining up too. Thanks for looking.

Autumn Collage - SOLD

Autumn Collage
Oil on Canvas board, 12" x 16"
Sold at $60.00 plus shipping.
I was thinking about missing the fall colors in New England, and so then thought of salvaging this old fall painting (the small one of the two boys walking), from early in my blogging days last year. It got misplaced in the move to Massachusetts, and I thought it was sold, so marked it gone. It served as a good base for this imaginary fall scene. And I did have some lovly leftover colors from the peaches to use up. I'm calling it "Collage" because there is such a lot of color here. Thanks for looking.

Peaches on Blue - SOLD

Peaches on Blue
Oil on Canvas mounted on masonite
6" x 9.5"
Sold at $20.00 plus shipping.

Since the kids want to eat these peaches, better get done with them. Here's a quick one on scrap board from Home Depot, using up what I have before the move to Louisiana. I have a ways to go on doing drapery, it's harder than you'd think. But I do like the peaches. Thanks for looking.

Pitcher, Peaches and Glads - SOLD

Pitcher, Peaches and Glads Oil on Canvas board, 9" x 12" Sold at $75.00 plus shipping This was one of those magic paintings that happens every so often. I don't know why, but it just seemed to paint itself. I didn't have to fight with it, struggle with it, or argue with it (which is normal.) I just love how it came out. The glads in the back I had just stuck in a plastic pitcher and hadn't intended to put them in, but they were there, so in they went. I wish painting could always be like this. Don't the peaches look nice and fuzzy? Thanks for looking.

Barre Farmer's Market - SOLD

Barre Farmer's Market 24" x 30", Oil on Stretched Canvas Sold.
This is a composite painting from photos taken at the Farmer's Market. It actually represents only one litle corner of the market; there are many more vendors. It's a very colorful event every Saturday morning, and it has that wonderful small town feel about it. Lots of people know each other, and are friends with the vendors. Kids romp, perfectly safe. Dogs trot around with their shoppers, babies get toted. This was a difficult and fussy painting, eleven people, imagine! I'm thrilled to be done with it. It's large, 2 feet by almost 3 feet. Thanks for looking.
