Pink Rose Watercolor Watercolor on Arches CP paper, 7" x 7" image area SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping. A small painting today, and since I had my watercolors out anyway, figured I'd try a rose. I didn't quite get the glow I was after, but I like the little rose anyway. Hope you are enjoying the days after Christmas with family and friends, and a spot of vacation.

Palmetto Fronds Watercolor on Arches 140 Cold Press Paper, 12.5" x 19" SOLD at $85.00 plus shipping. I haven't done a watercolor in awhile, and my daughter's beautiful and colorful palmettos have been calling me since we moved here in July. I've taken lots of photos of them, and decided today for a change of pace, to draw one out. It took me lots longer to paint than I anticipated, but all those little spaces, well... The palmettos are actually a lot bushier and fuller than this, but I like it anyway. It just means I'll try it again. It can certainly be cropped to a more standard size.

Road from the Orchard 4 Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. This one is larger than yesterday's painting, and here I attempted to use the crispness in the details but still have a sense of impressionistic mystery, some blurred edges, to let the viewer use his own imagination. It is on hold, as the collector who has requested this image decided against yesterday's piece, and I thought to try again. Not a very Christmasy image, but I do hope you are all enjoying a meaningful and joyful Christmas Eve day.

Road from the Orchard 3 Oil on Linen Panel, 11" x 14" Available at $40.00 plus shipping. This is the third of the same scene. The collector who requested it loves detail, so this one has more careful leaf formation and a bit more detail in the trunk and branches of the main tree. Just generally a slower piece with more small brush work. It is a bit warmer in person than this photo shows. What do you think? Do you like the detailed work? Update: The collector has decided on a larger version or a different scene, so this one is available.

Winter Rose Oil on Canvas Board, 10" x 12" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. This is actually the same rose I have painted before, but from a different view. I came across the stray photo when I was hunting for something else. My studio is like that, and really hasn't been reorganized since I jumbled everything off low spaces and tucked away as much as I could before the hurricanes this past fall. So hunting is a pretty normal activity for me, LOL.
