Winter Weave Watercolor on 140 lb Arches watercolor paper 10" x 14" Sold at $100 plus shipping. A departure into slightly "funky" for me today. I actually started on this one yesterday, but it involved painting two of the same painting and then weaving it together. (The lines of cutting really are straight, I've got a little distortion in the camera.) From a distance it's fractured colors and the impression of winter. The idea came to me on the front porch, where the tree limbs seemed woven with the sky. Thanks for looking.

Watercolor on Cold Press 300 lb watercolor paper
9.5" x 14" image area
Sold at $40.00 plus shipping
I am working on two unusual techniques right now, and wasn't able to finish either piece for posting today, so this is a loose watercolor done for Kate Johnson's online class in watercolors from last year. I really like how the vase turned out on this one. Sometimes it's nice to have some older pieces on hand. Thanks for looking.

Golden Muffins Oil on Gessoed Board, 5.75" x 7.75" Sold at $60.00 plus shipping. I never did have a chance to do actual "browse around" Christmas shopping this year (all online buying) so today I went to the nearest Stop and Shop, about 25 minutes from here, and just poked around. Bought another poinsettia for $2.00 and a cyclamen, along with these yummy looking corn muffins. They were just so golden that I had to get them to paint. I love the browns and oranges against the white. (They tasted good too!) Thanks for looking.

Garlic Bulbs Oil onn Canvas board, 8" x 10" Sold at $65.00 plus shipping. This probably seems like an odd subject matter, but I love seeing loose garlic in the grocery store. The interesting colors, the shapes, the dry skins. Anyway, this was a tough painting, I'm not sure why. I think it was one of those days when I just forgot how to paint. They happen now and again. Thanks for looking.

Poinsettia Watercolor and Watercolor Pencil on watercolor paper Image size 14" x 18" Sold at $75.00 plus $15.00 shipping. We didn't have a poinsettia for Christmas, what with the little ones, but when I was at the grocery store the other day, there were two leftover, raggedy plants sitting in the back room. I took one to the checkout and it was free, so I wanted to honor it with a painting or two. I'll keep it in the basement with me, and maybe paint it again before it's done. Thanks for looking.

Winter Creek Blues
Oil on Canvas board, 16" x 20"
Sold at $100 plus $15.00 shipping
I've been wanting to do something with snow shadows since we've had so much snow (another 8" last night.) The other day I went for a nice little drive, when the sun was shining and took a bunch of photos. This is a little feeder creek across from Moss Pond. It's been altered a lot, since I could barely see the creek through all the brambles and branches, but it was great working with all these blues and lavender grays. Thanks for looking, and the best to everyone for 2008.
