Strawberry Grouping - SOLD

Strawberry Grouping Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD. This one is a combination of loose and swishy technique and then careful and blended on the berries. I really like the look and feel of painting in the sketchy style, but always want to go back to careful painting. Somewhere between the two is where I am headed. Thanks for looking.

Strawberry Abundance- NA

Strawberry Abundance Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" Not Available, overpainted. Another unstructured piece, just lay the paint down and leave it. I found some nice fabrics at Hobby Lobby the other day, polka dots and this checkerboard fabric. So I thought I'd try it out here, make the painting more interesting. This one was fun, very direct. Thanks for looking.

What's In the Bag? - SOLD

What's In the Bag? Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping. I was looking around for something to put the pears in, so I could take them from the studio to the house, and I found this paper bag. When I packed the pears into it, it was a painting waiting to happen, so I did a quick sketch and liked the effect. Doesn't it look like you've just peeked to see what's in there? Thanks for looking.

Yellow Bounty 2 - SOLD

Yellow Bounty 2 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. Can you tell I'm having fun with this small series? I did this one before the pears, but hadn't posted it yet. I like the shiny feeling to these. Thanks for looking.

Green Bounty 2 - SOLD

Green Bounty 2 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" Sold at sale price. I liked working with these colors so much, that I decided to do another version of the pears in a tumble. I think they both turned out well. Thanks for looking.

Green Bounty - SOLD

Green Bounty (detail below) Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping.

I am truly trying to not "blend" on this one. It's hard, because my brush and my hand want to go there. But I really like the look of a painting where you can tell that an artist just put the stroke down and left it be. Or as I tell myself, "Lay it down and leave it!" (little mantra for painters.) I did better on the middle and bottom pears, more painterly. Do you like the look too?Thanks for viewing.

Yellow Bounty - NA

Yellow Bounty Oil on Canvas Board, 8" x 10" Not Available. I am thinking of a series of paintings of "bounty", all bunches of things tumbled together. Red bounty could be strawberries, apples, red peppers. Purple could be a tumbled mess of plums, maybe eggplant. You get the idea. I've got pears next, a bunch ready to go for green. Thanks for looking.
