Red Pear Parade - SOLD

Red Pear Parade Oil on Canvas board, 10" x 12" Sold at $60.00 plus shipping. Unusual colors for me in the background, but I bought some new craft papers, and these colors appealed to me. The red pears are in season, and they are just too pretty to pass up. Thanks for looking.

Jana's Roses - SOLD

Jana's Roses
Oil on Canvas board, 10" x 12"
SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping.

My friend and fellow artist, Jana Bouc, gave me permission to use her photo of a still life which she had assembled. We have a mentoring arrangement and I wanted to see what I could do with her photo. Her sketch blog is here: and I did this one as a tutorial of sorts, which I will post later on my own sketch blog. This one was intended to be very loose and directly painted, and I think I got it, at least for the most part. The colors are vibrant and dramatic, which is what I was going for. Thanks for looking.

The Edge of Autumn - SOLD

The Edge of Autumn Oil on Canvas board, 12" x 16" Sold at $50.00 plus shipping. I found this trail around Moss Pond and decided that it was a perfect day to be out painting it. There is just a touch of color in the trees and bushes now, sumacs turning red, hints of burnt oranges in the trees. The vines in the treetop here were bright red against the sky, just lovely. Thanks for looking.

Path to the Old Red House - SOLD

Path to the Old Red House Oil on Canvas board, 16" x 20" Sold at $75.00 plus shipping. This is a salvage painting that I had started some time ago, and put aside. It really only needed freshening up, and now I'm glad I didn't put it in the trash heap (at the price of canvas panels, I hesitated) as I was going to this morning. I always like the sense of shade into light, or light into shade; which makes either one pop out. Thanks for looking.

Kitchen Tableau - SOLD

Kitchen Tableau Watercolor on 140 lb Arches paper 9" x 12" Sold at $20.00 plus $5.00 shipping. A little watercolor with things from the kitchen, a few minutes here, a few minutes there. I see now that I could have composed these better, but I did something different with the shadow and I liked it (just let all the primaries float in). Thanks for looking.
