Fruit Bowl, Apples and Red Pears Oil on Canvas Board, 12" x 16" Sold at $100 plus shipping. I had this one set up, and started it in a typical horizonatl format, and then half way through the drawing, I decided it would fit the canvas better in a vertical shape. I just love the colors of the dark pears and light apples together. Against all that wonderful blue, and I really like how this one turned out. Especially for a fairly large canvas. Thanks for looking.
Winter Study after Elizabeth Tolley Oil on Canvas board, 10" x 12" Claimed for Reimbursement for $20, includes shipping. I am still studying Elizabeth Tolley's work, and this is a loose copy of a winter painting she did, with some changes. The color palette and brushwork is copied directly, as closely as I could. I am offering it for materials reimbursement only, and shipping is included. Don't you love her colors? Thanks for looking.

Red Pears, Blue Plate Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" Sold at $60 plus shipping. This was an experiment over the last two evenings (more mural work today, almost done). I had heard of folks painting oils over acrylics, and it makes sense, since you can lay down an underpainting rather quickly in acrylics, and then the transparent colors in oil are easier to manage. This went quickly in oils, since I had the underpainting done last evening. Thanks for looking.

Reese Cup Torte Pen and Ink on Buff Paper, 8" x 10" SOLD at $25 plus $5 shipping. A little pen and ink done with my Ackerman pen and the Lamy Safari, using handmade walnut ink. Sometimes it's very relaxing to just scritch away at a small drawing. Thanks for looking. Detail.

Simple Overlook Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16" Sold at $50 plus shipping. I just painted today. Nothing to struggle with, nothing to match colors with, just let the image come along, and this is what evolved. (I know, definitely a recurring theme, the pastoral overlook, patchwork fields, distant mountains.) I can see, now that I've got it small and cropped, that it needs a little tweaking, but by and large, it's pleasing. Thanks for looking.
Limes on Blue Oil on Canvas Board, 8" x 8" Not Available.. This was a painting done in November, and although the limes were interesting enough, the background was a little "much" in red. So I changed it today to a blue background, and left the brushmarks loose. It looks much better. Thanks for looking.

Mieke's Deck January Oil on Raphael Linen Panel, 12" x 12" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. Sometimes the late afternoon, early evening skies in winter are so beautiful, I had to go and get my camera for this one. Just a hint of snow blue still visisble on the ground, but the rest was all glorious sky. View from my daughter's back deck. I think I misued this lovely linen panel though, it probably should have been saved for a more exacting subject (very nice smooth tooth.) Thanks for looking.
