High Summer Path - SOLD

High Summer Path Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10" SOLD at $85.00 plus shipping. I don't think I could like this one any better if it was painted by another artist. (And that's saying a lot!) I remember stopping on the road to take this photo in Maryland, I think it was on the way home from plein air painting with a group. It took all of twenty minutes to paint, nice thick paint to cover over a failed pansy painting that was scaped down but still tacky. Isn't it just a small gem? I really like the "air" in it. Thanks for looking.

Iris for Noelle - SOLD

Iris for Noelle Oil on Canvas Board, 8" x 10" Sold at $65.00 plus shipping. Noelle is one of my collectors, and a sister of one of my avid floral collectors. She liked the one from yesterday, but has a frame in this size, and asked if I would do it again in the size to fit her frame. Oh, well, since it's an iris... I was out of the 8 x 10's, so found my very first (dismal) apple painting, sanded it down, and voila. Thanks for looking.

Vertical Iris SOLD

Vertical Iris Oil on Canvas Board, 10" x 12" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. This was the second one today, mostly because I had all sorts of lovely colors mixed and left over. Too nice to waste. Also because there have been so many requests for florals, and particularly the irises. I am happy to know that I'm not the only one with a passion for these gems. Thanks for looking.

Pink and Lilac Iris - SOLD

Pink and Lilac Iris Oik on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. The last of my 12" x 12" canvases, and by request, more irises. (And to be able to afford my computer's new brain.) Thanks for looking.

Stream on the Edge of Spring - SOLD

Stream on the Edge of Spring Oil on Canvas Board, 10" x 12" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. First time out this season. I think I forgot everything I learned last year about plein air painting, but it was wonderful to be out in the sunshine and fresh air anyway. This is Galloway Brook in Cook's Canyon, here in Barre. The stream was actually golden with the sun shining to the bottom of it. I do like the birches in this one. Thanks for looking.

Purple Pansies - SOLD

Purple Pansies
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping.

I think this will be the last of the pansy paintings, at least for now. It's getting nice enough now to be outdoors painting, which is quite fine. It's been a while coming. Thanks for looking.

Deep Purple - SOLD

Deep Purple Oil on Canvas Panel, 6" x 6" SOLD at $25.00 plus shipping. Small pansy face in deep purple.

Two Faces - SOLD

Two Faces Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. We got more pansies the other day, and chose some with huge, deep colored blooms. I know there are a couple more pansy paintings coming up. Hope you're not getting sick of the florals yet. Thanks for looking.

Apple Reflection

Apple Reflection Oil on Canvas Board, 6" x 8" Available at $40.00 plus shipping. An apple on a mirror, painted as quickly as I could, with as large brushes as I could. It's a continuing effort to paint more loosely, with more regard for the paint and what it's doing than for the actual subject matter. (Besides, I'm working on taxes today. Yes, I know, "can you say procrastinate?") Thanks for looking.
