Red Letter Day Pears - SOLD

Red Letter Day Pears Oil on Gesso Board, 8" x 10" SOLD at $25.00 plus shipping. Two of "my girls" have birthdays today. Kate Johnson and my sweet grandaughter, Alex. I looked up the derivation of what is a red letter day, and it seems to come from way back, when Holy Days were marked in red in the First Book of Common Prayer in 1549, and then subsequently to mark Sundays and Holidays on printed calendars. Isn't that interesting? Happy Birthday, Red Letter Day girls!

Shadowed Iris - NA

Shadowed Iris Oil on Canvas Board, 12" x 12" Not available.. I've done this one before, and the results were quite different. Interesting that at different times, the attitude and maturity we bring to the easel makes for a similar but wholly new painting. Thanks for looking.

Frosted Black Irises - SOLD

Frosted Black Irises
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 14"
SOLD at $80.00 plus shipping.

Does anyone remember Brenda Starr, and how her Mystery Man was always looking for Black Orchids? Yes, I'm dating myself, but that was in the back of my head today as I was painting these guys. Not an orchid, but dark and frosted.

Riverside Overcast - SOLD

Riverside Overcast Oil on Gesso Board, 8" x 10" SOLD at $25.00 plus shipping. Just a little landscape today. I think this might be the Ware River or the Prince River, at any rate one of the little rivers that runs through Barre.

Awning Apples - SOLD

Awning Apples Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 12" SOLD at $85.00 plus shipping. Another fun painting with patterned fabric. This one was a little harder than yesterday's, more accuracy involved in the width and direction of the stripes. The red and white just reminds me of an awning. Don't the folds show up nicely?
