Lemons on Polka Dots - SOLD

Lemons on Polka Dots, plus Detail Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 20" SOLD at $100.00 plus shipping. I really like this one. Two shoeboxes and my polka dotted cloth from Hobby Lobby, and of course, the lemons I've been painting for a couple of days. I think it turned out fresh and clean looking. The dots aren't all straight or placed correctly, but I think it works overall (should have seen me with my Q-tips soaked in mineral spirits moving dots around.) Thanks for looking. This will be my last post for several days, as here in Lake Charles, (Louisiana) near the Gulf, we are in the path of Gustav. Tomorrow the decision as to whether or not to evacuate, though my daughter is hunting for a hotel suite that will house 7 people and the 60 pound "puppy" and having no luck at all. The whole neighborhood will be gone, and so we will probably follow suit. (Though where we will go is a good question.) I am spending the rest of the day getting things in the studio off the floor and away from the windows. Wish us well.

Blue Bowl with Lemons - SOLD

Blue Bowl with Lemons Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8" SOLD at $45.00 plsu $5.00 shipping. Much better on the lemon colors, I think (than yesterday). And as someone yesterday suggested, the olive green background may have been too distracting. Thanks for looking.

Lemons and Avocados - NA

Lemons and Avocados Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 14" Not Available. This one is a little strange, even to me. I loved all the brightness of the lemons and the olive background, and in the painting of it, I was really enjoying the colors, but in the end it looks a little odd. Maybe it's drawing problems with the ovals? Not sure, but I'll call it done. Thanks for looking.

White Onions - SOLD

White Onions Oil on Gesso Board, 8" x 10" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. These were tricky to do, with their silverish colors, touches of blue, browns and purples. Very interesting. It was also different again working on the Gesso board, which has a slick surface. You wouldn't think it would take oils, but it does, in a much different fashion than canvas, but it does. Thanks for looking.

Radlo Barn - SOLD

Radlo Barn (detail below) Oil on Gassoed Panel, 12" x 16" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping.

Radlo Barn (detail)

This is a larger, more detailed version of the painting from the other day, which I named "Glimpse" since it was always a quick peek while driving. The Radlo's liked the painting and requested another one, larger and more accurate to their actual barn, which has a lovely history of rebuilding involving some friends and loved ones. So I hope they like the larger version. Thanks, everyone, for looking.

Pink Iris Face - SOLD

Pink iris Face Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8" SOLD at $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping. No blending! Okay, barely any. Almost none. Thanks for looking.

Skydancer Irises - SOLD

Skydancer Irises Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 20" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I'm tickled to tell you that this one was designed by one of my collectors, who sent me a rough Photoshop image that she wanted, in a format that she liked, with the colors that she wanted, and we then agreed on a size. Isn't that cool? If you have a format and an idea that you want done (in a subject you think I could do, which means probably no portraits or pets) I am open to your ideas. Thanks for looking.
