October Colors - SOLD

October Colors 16" x 20", Oil on Canvas board Sold at $100.00 plus shipping. Using the same reference photos as yesterday's combination plein air and studio painting, I did a lager version of the same scene. Lots of color! The fun thing about a painting like this is that it's all dabs, and you just keep popping in small bits of color. The underpainting is red, so that works too, in little bits coming though here and there. Thanks for viewing.

Plein Air Hodge Podge - SOLD

Plein Air Hodge Podge Oil on Canvas board, 12" x 16" Sold at $60.00 plus shipping. It was fairly late in the afternoon yesterday when I got out to paint, and I painted a little frantic. My usual system flew out of my head, and I was chasing the sunspots and the light on leaves before I even toned my canvas or blocked in my darks. Then I started to get chilly, and was having trouble with acorns falling behind me (it's a bear, it's a coyote!) So finished this today, and the photo was from another visit to the spot, at a different time of day, so hence the "hodge podge." Considering, though, not bad. Thanks for looking.

The Red Door - SOLD

The Red Door Oil on Canvas board, 12" x 12" Sold at $45.00 plus shipping. The last couple of days, I've managed to get out for some plein air painting. It's been gorgeous here. This was yesterday's, in the side yard, looking across the road. Thanks for looking.

Pile of Peppers - SOLD

Pile of Peppers Oil on Canvas board, 10" x 10" Sold at $50.00 plus shipping. I really like this one. It's getting closer to the way I want to be able to paint. These were called Anaheim Peppers in the store, so I'm not sure exactly what they are, but very neat shapes. Thanks for looking.

Pomegranates Two - SOLD

Pomegranates Two Oil on Canvas board, 8" x 8" Sold at $30.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Pomegranates again, but without the plate. I keep thinking that you have to "do a painting" in order to "do a painting." When you get to the second one, you've figured a few things out, and it always seems to go easier. What I really liked about this one was the blue reflections cast up by the blue paper. Thanks, as always, for looking.

Pomegranates - SOLD

Pomegranates Oil on Canvas board, 10" x 10" Sold at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping I've never done pomegranates before, and love their shapes. But I wanted to have the tops show, and also to try this look down view. I've hardly mastered it, but for a first try, not bad, I think. Thanks for looking.
