Northwest Branch Two Oil on Canvas board, 10" x 12" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. A small one today, since I've picked up the family cold, and am feeling pretty raggedy. Another creek scene, all in roses, lavenders, soft oranges, and greens. Thanks for looking.

Northwest Branch, Lazy Creek 12" x 16", Oil on Canvas board SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping. I was going for the feeling of a shallow creek with sunlight playing on the water, but the creek bed visible beneath. I wasn't sure about all the colors I used, but it seems to work. Thanks for looking.

Eggies 8" x 16", Oil on Canvas board Sold at $60.00 plus shipping I wanted to use these eggs once more before the kitty decides to knock one off the table, and that's not a nice prospect, as they aren't cooked and have been sitting in my studio for a couple of weeks. Using the nice new canvases again, great for lining things up. Thanks for looking, and to all a wonderful day of Thanksgiving.

Lake Hollowell with Ducks 8" x 16", Oil on Canvas board Sold at $45.00 plus shipping. I got new canvases from Ray Mar, and wanted to try something with this new size. Since it's snowed here, and this photo just looked so "perfect summer day" (although painting there in August was hot), I used it to try the new format. Doesn't it look peaceful? Thanks for looking.

Rock Creek Two Oil on Linen board, 10" x 12" Sold at $35.00 plys $7.00 shipping. Rock Creek again, simply because I wanted to play more with the water and reflections. This one gave me some trouble, redoing the water more than once. I think I like it pretty well now though. Nice to work on the linen, which is a much finer surface than the cotton canvas. Thanks for looking.

Rock Creek at 16th Street Oil on Stretched Canvas (with brace), 20" x 20" Sold at $75.00 plus $15.00 shipping. I'm reading a book by Paul Strisick right now, in which he stresses identifying what it as that makes you want to paint a scene. What was it about that view that you liked anyway? Here it was the way the light played with the background, spots of yellows and oranges, and the wow blue of the spots of water. I think I'll try this one again sometime. Thanks for looking.

Limes in Glass Bowl Oil on Canvas board, 8" x 8" Sold at $50.00 plus shipping. I started out with this one wanting to try a painting with black in it. The composition turned out to be somewhat complicated and it took me forever to get the drawing as correct as I could. It turned out well, I think, over all. Thanks for looking.
