Sienna and Mauve Irises Oil on Stretched Canvas, 18" x 24" SOLD at $100.00 plus shipping. This one is big, and it took me a while today. Actually, this is the drawing I did for yesterday's painting, not realizing that it was the wrong size canvas. So it became today's painting. I'm not sure if it's a good thing to plod along like I did on a large piece. After a time, you just get so eager to be done with it. And that's when you just start stroking. No fussing, just get the thing done. Good or bad? I'm not sure. There's a lot of color though, and it got to be more or less "Impressions of Irises." Thanks for looking.

Frosted Purple Irises Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20" SOLD. The collector who requested this one liked the Black Frosted Iris from awhile back, but since they were gone, I painted this for her. It came out nicely, I think. My daughter says that the petals look "velvery" which is a nice compliment. Now on to other requests.

Broken Color Landscape Oil on Red Gessoed Panel, 11" x 14" SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping. For whatever reason, and that I had a red gessoed panel ready, I felt like dibs and dabs today. I like the way this turned out, and it really is mostly dabs of different colors, with the red undercoat allowed to show through wherever. I think if you click on it, you'll be able to see the little spots of red here and there.

Reflecting Tree Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $35.00 plus shipping. I've been working on a large couple of paintings (by request) the last couple of days, and they came out really well. When I was shooting photos and details, this one little secton just popped, so I did this small paintig of just one small section of one of the paintings. Since I had the colors mixed anyway. All that green and lavender with just a blast of yellow, isn't that cool?

Purple Folds Watercolor with White Gouache on Watercolor Paper, 300 lb, 5" x 5" Available at $20.00 plus $5.00 shipping. I was working today on two larger oils, and knew I wouldn't be getting them done, so did a little watercolor in the meanwhile. When it was done, it looked so ho-hum, that I decided to use a little gouache on it to see what difference that might make. It's different. I'll let you be the judges.
