Magnolia Three - SOLD

Magnolia Three Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $40.00 pus shipping. A little one today with a creamier feel to it. I am definitely getting my painting time from this little fake flower I bought.

Magnolia in Blues - SOLD

Magnolia in Blues Oil on Canvas Panel, 10" x 12" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. This one was done as a request that didn't quite fit the bill, so I'll do another. But the effect I was going for was the fake magnolia that I've been paintig in very cool, blue light. I like the effect, the petals feel both velvety soft and solid.

Apple Metaphor - SOLD

Apple Metaphor Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8" SOLD at $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping. The Gala apples have such color variety that I wanted to contrast the red ones against one of the golder ones. You can figure out the metaphor, I'm sure. Just a small painting today.

Delicate Balance - SOLD

Delicate Balance Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD. This one just turned out clean looking to me. And kind of patriotic too, with the red, white and blue motif. But what I was really working on was the bowl. The way I had the set up for this one, I was looking a bit down and almost backwards at it when I drew if out, and the bowl really, really looked like this. It didn't "seem" right, but I decided to draw and paint just what I was seeing. And it somehow works, I don't really even spot it now.

Sienna Irises 2 - SOLD

Sienna Irises 2 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD Another painting by request from one of my floral lovers, a loyal collector. I have been happily painting in a semi-conscious state of mind these past days, as I work through a wonderful resource library of messages and talks from Covenant Life Church. With passion, solid doctrine, and wonderful inspiration, these messages fill my mind while my hands paint. Very cool. Check out the library here if you're so inclined:

"Mommy, Scatch"

"Mommy, Scatch", Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20", Not For Sale

This is my daughter's Christmas gift from me this year. It's Katie Grace in Mommy's lap, asking as she often does, for her belly to be scratched. She'll lift up her shirt for you. This particular morning, she was so relaxed and sleepy sitting in my daughter's lap, she had a lovely, dreamy look on her face. It doesn't lool exactly like her, and I want to add a bit more yellow to her skin tones, but I'll let it dry first, instead of trying to do something with the half-dry paint. All in all, my daughter and I are both happy with it.
