Ethereal Pink Tulip - SOLD

Ethereal Pink Tulip Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 14" SOLD at $90.00 plus shipping. I had all these soft colors left over from the sunset painting yesterday, so I found one of my photos from Brookside Gardens, and used some of them up. I'm also playing with pinks in preparation for a set of poppy paintings that has been requested. Thanks for looking.

Sky Gold - SOLD

Sky Gold Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 12" x 24" Wrap Depth is 1.5" SOLD at $100.00 plus shipping.

Sky Gold Detail, Left side painted

The sky the other night was an incredible sight. It's been a long time since I've seen such a gorgeous sunset (probably because we can see so much of it here, the land is flat.) Piles of golden yellow top clouds, and all those sunset colors below. Just amazingly beautiful.

This one is gallery wrapped and painted around all the edges, and so needs no frame, although if you wanted to, you could use one. Thanks for looking.

Pink Tulips - SOLD

Pink Tulips Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 14" SOLD at $80.00 plus shipping. An armload of tuips from the grocery store in early spring, but they only lasted a short time. I am glad I took a few photos to work from. Thanks for looking.

Glimpse - NA

Glimpse Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" Not Available, revised on 02.15.10 Before we left Massachusetts, right along Wauwinet Road, I kept getting glimpses of this tucked back barn while driving down the road. I stopped and asked the Radlos if I could set up and do plein air in their yard, and they said sure. I never did get to do that, but have some photos. I like the image and might do this larger. Thanks for looking.

White Rose, More or Less - SOLD

White Rose, More or Less Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping. This one I could pick and putz at all day, but I'm calling it done. I'm still very interested in white and it's shadows, so that's what I'm studying here. This is a distance painting, I think. I keep liking it better at a distance than close up. Thanks for looking.

Iris in Lavender and Green - SOLD

Iris in Lavender and Green Watercolor on 140 lb CP Arches Paper, 13" x 19" image area SOLD.

Iris in Lavender and Green, Detail

This is something a bit different for me, in doing watercolor. I taped the edges and used the whole image area to paint in. With mask I protected the edges of the petals, and then floated in color wet-on-wet behind the flowers. It got a little rough and messy, so there was a lot of layering and lifting to do to the background after it all dried. But even though it's different for me, it's also kind of cool. Thanks for looking.

Red Glass with Berries

Red Glass with Berries Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" Available at $65.00 plus shipping. I really like this one, it's just so different. It was a challenge to do though, with the perspective on the squares, and the changing colors in the white and black. My favorite part is the way the red glass flavors the other colors. Very cool. Thanks for looking.
