Minneolas - SOLD

Minneolas Oil on Canvas board, 8" x 10" SOLD at $20.00 plus shipping. Have you seen these? I picked some up at the produce place the other day, along with the tomatoes, and they have a Sunkist label on them. Beautiful orange red skins and these odd little knobs at the growing end. I had to try painting them, and got to use some of my more transparent paint colors. Thanks for looking.

Marsh Morning - SOLD

Marsh Morning Oil on Linen Panel, 11" x 14" SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping. I wanted something beautiful to paint today, and this photo of the morning light on a marsh did it for me. It was pure pleasure to paint. I am so grateful for the beauty that God gives us to enjoy every day. Thanks for looking.

Waterfall - NA

Watercolor Crayons on Richeson 300 lb Rough Paper, 11" x 15"
Not Available

New toys to play with. Lyra Aquacolors are a densely pigmented water soluble crayon (yes, crayon) that you can draw with dry and then wet to watercolor, or use a wet brush to pick up pigment from the crayon and simply paint. Very fun. This one was done as an exercise on depicting water for Kate Johnson's watercolor pencil class, and the photo was taken and shared by a classmate. Thanks for looking.

Tomato Six Pack SOLD

Tomato Six Pack Oil on Linen Panel, 9" x 12" SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping. I stopped with my friend Susan from church, at a wonderful little fruit and veggie place today, and bought these tomatoes, which really are on a six stem vine. Very cool. They reminded me of a six pack, a natural one, that is. Thanks for looking.

Grapes with Orange

Grapes with Orange Oil on Linen Panel, 9" x 12" Available at $50.00 plus shipping. I blocked this one in, and started to "finesse" it, blending, overworking, clarifying lines, but then, stopped myself. Before I got to the grapes and the orange. I'm trying to paint more freshly and directly. Aren't the grapes nice that way? Thanks for looking.

Floral Watercolor /Negative Painting - NA

Floral Watercolor/ Negative Painting
Watercolor on 300 lb Cold Press Paper, 15.5" x 17"
Not available.

This one was done as a demonstration in my watercolor class (a couple of years ago), and then finished in detail later because I liked it so well. We were working on negative painting, painting the space rather than the form, explained so well by Linda Kemp in her fine and inspiring books. It could be cropped almost anywhere and still make sense. Thanks for looking.
