Tattered Lady - SOLD

Tattered Lady Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. This old beauty was back in the woods along Muncaster Mill Road, in Montgomery County, Maryland. I think she's been demolished now, but even boarded up and tattered, she had such an elegance to her, whispering of what she once was. The awning was hanging in rags, but the size and shapes of this grand old house made me think of some large family from the early 1900's. Don't you love old mysterious buildings that have such history and character? Thanks for looking.

Mauve Irises Watercolor - SOLD

Mauve Irises Watercolor, Detail Below Watercolor on Arches 140 lb paper, 14" x 19.5" SOLD at $100.00, includes shipping.

Mauve Irises, Detail

I'm pretty happy with this one, especially the way those front petals turned out, with the dark purple and the ice blue. I'm lucky I was able to do most of this one yesterday, as we are hunkering down again today, this time for Ike. I do expect some flooding in the studio, so it's paints away and boxes up off the floor. Stay safe everyone, and thanks for looking.

Hurricane Watch - SOLD

Hurricane Watch
Acrylic on Canvas Board, 9" x 12"
SOLD at $35.00 plus shipping.
Using up some of my acrylics, and with Ike on the news and weather here in Louisiana, this is an imagination skyscape. Just for the feeling of storms brewing. Thanks for looking.

Koi Pond 1

Koi Pond 1 Acrylic on Stretched Canvas, 24" x 24" Available at $75.00 plus $25.00 shipping. Our Koi pond is right next to the patio and pool, so I sit and look at it when I take my little breaks. It has a circulating waterfall system, so there is always movement and ripples, dancing light and color. I am thinking of a series at different times of the day in different light. This one is done in acrylics, not trying to blend, which is hard with this fast drying medium. There is the advantage that you can change and adjust to your heart's content though, so if you work with that, it's a joy. Thanks for looking.

Iris in Blues - SOLD

Iris in Blues Watercolor on 140 lb Arches paper, 14" x 17" SOLD at $85.00 plus shipping. Playing with the opaque blues over transparencies of purple. I've used this photo reference before, but they never do turn out two exactly the same. (You can always tell when I've run out of canvas by the posting of an iris in watercolor, LOL.) Thanks for looking.

Lemons and Avocados NA

Lemons and Avocados Revised Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 14" Not Available (Overpainted) I have such savvy collectors. Some of my subscription group folks wrote me with suggestions for improving the painting I posted about a week or so back. I took every single one of those observations (nothing like a fresh eye, and a canny observer) and revised this piece. Much improved, I think. Thanks for looking.

Deconstructed Pears - SOLD

Deconstructed Pears Oil on Canvas Board, 8" x 10" SOLD I've been in a bit of a rut lately, and feel like I'm not growing in my painting. I also greatly admire two painters that I'd like to emulate, Carol Marine and Karin Jurick , whose individual styles are fabulous. Both of them use clean, unfussed-with brushstrokes, just wonderful. So I'm trying for a bit of that feeling here, but there's much not yet on target. It's very hard for me not to go back and fuss, blending the life right out of the brushwork. But this isn't quite it either. Keep on swimmin'. Thanks for looking.

Pear Diptych - SOLD

Pear Diptych Oil on Canvas Panels, 8" x 8" each SOLD as a Pair of Pears at $45.00 plus shipping. A set together, painted by taping the backs together and doing it all as one. The line in the background is actually straight, but shows off kilter in the photos here. Thanks for looking.
