Hydrangeas Turning - SOLD

Hydrangeas Turning Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. My hydrangea lovers will probably appreciate this one. I went for the subtle colors and green greys of hydrangeas turning their colors. Soft, cool colors here. Thanks for looking.

Purple and Blue Iris - SOLD

Purple and Blue Iris Watercolor on Watercolor Paper, 140 lb CP, 13" x 19" image area SOLD at $100.00 plus shipping. This one is actually pretty big, for a watercolor, half sheet size. And the colors, much more intense than what I usually use. But the photo I had from a friend in Kate Johnson's alumni group was deep, shadowed and beautiful (thanks, Hannah) so I went with the blue and turquoise. Turned out nicely, I think. Thanks for looking.

Delaware Sunrise Three - SOLD

Delaware Sunrise Three Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. Some of you will recognize this one, as being on my business card. This is the third time I have painted it, and I still enjoy the image. It's a photo I snapped on a sunrise trip to the ocean a couple of summers ago. Along with the irises, it's almost like a signature painting. Thanks for looking.

Light Play Revised - SOLD

Light PLay Revised Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. One that was too yellow, I guess. I played around with it today, and sometimes it's just fun to overpaint one that hasn't sold and isn't precious, as is. It looks more interesting now, and more refined. Thanks for looking.

Peony for Barbara - SOLD

Peony for Barbara Watercolor on Watercolor Paper, 13.5" x 17" SOLD Done by request for a floral collector. Thanks for looking.

Sorolla Study - Claimed

Sorolla Study Oil on Canvas Board, 12" x 16" Claimed. I haven't seen any painters do beach light and white clothing like Sorolla did. His work is stunning. I'm especially intrigued with how he did white clothes. So it was good to really, really look at a small section of a painting called Esplanade du Phare, Biarritz. It's good training to have to analyze the colors and the brushwork. Thanks for looking.

Evening Sky - SOLD

Evening Sky Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20" SOLD at $75.00 plus $15.00 shipping This canvas just keeps getting better. This is the same painting from several days back, on it's third revision. I think I like it now, and will let it be. Thanks for looking.

Floral Abstract - NA

Floral Abstract
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"
Not available.

I've been working slowly on two careful paintings (another peony watercolor, and another gnarly tree painting) for folks who requested them, so this one was intended to be just loose and swishy. The colors gave me some trouble though, so it turned out to be more tricky than I intended. In the end though, I do like it. Thanks for looking.
