Orange Fan - SOLD

Orange Fan Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8" Sold at $50.00 plus shipping. This was a delight to do today, just because it was oils. Oil blends like you want it to, it moves as you want it to, it can be as subtle as you want it to, or as bold. It felt like a homecoming. Thanks for looking.

Foggy Pond

Foggy Pond Oil on Canvas board, 8" x 16" Available at $50.00 plus shipping. The third of this series. It felt so good to pull out the oil paints again, like a comfortable and familiar place to be. Ahhhh. Thanks for looking.

Creek Colors

Creek Colors Acrylic on Canvas board, 10" x 12" Available at $50.00 plus shipping. So far with the acrylics, I've been trying to make them behave like oils, adding mediums to beef them up and slow them down (drying time.) Today I decided to just go with the flow, and paint as the paints wanted to act. There is almost no blending in this one, just popping colors in where they needed to go, in the approximate shapes in the scene. Putting them overtop of one another. I like the way the foliage turned out, but it does lend itself well to this kind of painting. I blended a little in the water, but that's about it. What do you think of the results? Thanks for looking.

Shade Tree for the Cows - SOLD

Shade Tree for the Cows
Acrylic on Canvas panel, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping.

The perfect pastoral subject, and I like painting them too. Cows are so restful. And I know where I can find some to photograph. More cows? Could well be. Thanks for looking.

Doray House Winter - Sold

Doray House Winter Acrylic on Canvas board, 12" x 16" SOLD This one was a redo of the Winter Neighborhood from a few days back. The neighbor's liked it, since it was of their house, and asked for a repeat. This one is for Sharon, Happy Birthday! Thanks for looking.

Pine Needle Path - SOLD

Pine Needle Path Acrylic on Canvas board, 12" x 16" Sold at $50.00 plus shipping. I liked the subtle play of colors on the path when I took this photo, the bright sienna color of the pine needles, against the darkness of the trees. Still playing with the acrylics. Thanks for looking.

Homestead Two - SOLD

Homestead Two Acrylic on Canvas board, 12" x 16" SOLD This one is a repeat with some changes of the Homestead painting of December 22nd. Goodness knows I need and enjoy the practice, so it was fun to do this one over again. It actually turned out quite a bit differently than the first one. Thanks for looking. I hope you all are enjoying some peace and enjoyment tonight. Christmas Eve has it's own family traditions, and I hope that you are blessed with yours. If you are alone, I wish you contentment and rest. May the King of Kings, Lord of all people and all creation, all time and eternity, all worlds and all the universe, and each star by its name; bless us all as we celebrate His birthday.

Winter Flag Flying - SOLD

Winter Flag Flying Acrylic on Canvas panel, 12" x 12" SOLD at $20.00 plus shipping. This is part of what I see from my daughter's front porch. It was going to be a background for some closer trees, but when I got this far, I liked it just as is, so decided not to put the trees in. Don't you love the winter colors? And the image of the house with the flag out was just so nice today. Thanks for looking.

Winter Day in Grey - Gifted

Winter Day in Grey Acrylic on Canvas mounted to Masonite, 5.75" x 11.75" Gifted. I had leftover paint from the painting above, and since the acrylic doesn't keep (I'm ordering a stay-wet palette) I decided to use up a piece of scrap that was Gessoed and ready to go. A simple scene of what it's like today in New England. Thanks for looking.

Homestead - SOLD

Homestead Acrylic on Canvas board, 12" x 16" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. Another possible scene for mural work, which is to be in a powder room. Thanks for looking.
