Oranges in the Bag Watercolor with red ink on Watercolor Paper 10" x 14" Sold at $40.00 plus shipping. Isn't this a fun one? My daughter bought a large bag of oranges, since the kids are orange happy right now, and they were sitting on the kitchen counter. Looking so round and bright. So I decided to quick do a watercolor before they got into them (as soon as I was done, of course.) This will be a sporadic week for paintings, since the kids (my daughter and sil) are gone to Italy, and I'm with the children. I don't anticipate much painting time, except perhaps for small watercolors that I can do in the kitchen during nap time. Thanks, as always, for looking, and for the encouraging words, and of course, the purchases.
Paperwhites with Purple Ink 8" x 13", Watercolor and Ink on Watercolor Paper Sold at $20 plus shipping. This was to be paperwhites, from bulbs I picked up at the grocery store, but I forgot that the purple ink was water soluble, and it bled, of course. So the paperwhites aren't paperwhites anymore. Just a little floral. Thanks for looking.

Winter Creek Sunset 12" x 16", Acrylic on Canvas board Sold at $80 plus shipping Can you feel how cold the water would be if you were to touch it? A few lingering leaves in the trees, and lots of leaves on the ground. Done from a photo that I took in Maryland and have used before, but I love the image, so here it is again. Thanks for looking.

Summer Sunrise Acrylics on Canvas Board, 11" x 14" Sold at $80 plus shipping. I wanted a nice summery painting today, and have worked from these photos of a trip to the Delaware shore before. I had some success getting the rising sun to "bite" away some of the color from the two trees. Thanks for looking.

Donuts Acrylic on Canvas board, 8" x 10" Available at $50.00 plus shipping. These donuts looked so good in the grocery store, that I wanted to try to paint them. I've had to keep the kids from munching until I could paint them. They'll be happy I'm done. Thanks for looking.

Cook's Canyon Acrylic on Canvas bord, 16" x 20" SOLD at $100 plus shipping. This is an image from Cook's Canyon in the snow, which isn't really a canyon, but it does have a few places to park, a little creek and a nice walking trail, and it's right here in Barre. The shadows were so nice, and the late afternoon light was just catching a few branches. It turned out quite well. Thanks for looking.

Holiday Leftovers Acrylic on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12" Sold at $40.00 plus shipping. I have another cold, and I think it shows in this one. It just didn't want to happen today, and there was the further distraction of another snowstorm, kids home from school, and some shoveling that needed to happen. The colors are good though. Thanks for looking.

Sweet Field Acrylic on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12" Sold at $60.00 plus shipping. I get a lot of comments about how colorful my paintings are, and I wanted to try something with more subdued colors today. Just a touch of color here and there. This one has a lot of white mixed in it. Very simple subject, just a field with some trees. I was trying more for the subtle color and the mood of misty, wet air and breaking clouds. Thanks for looking.
