Hello Magnolia Oil on Canvas Mounted on Masonite, 16" x 16" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping I am posting this from a brand new laptop computer, candy apple red (sounds like a car, doesn't it? My brothers bought it for me, and were thinking about fuzzy dice to go with it...I am very grateful.) This one is actually quite large, and turned out beautifully. The colors are different on the laptop, so I hope you can tell from your monitor the warm tones and nice mauves I got on it. Even though it's a white flower, I used quite a bit of yellow for warmth.

Magnolia Sprig 1 Oil on Linen Panel, 6" x 6" Not Available, Revised Magnolia Sprig 2 Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8" Not available. My daughter has a young magnolia tree in her side yard, and let me clip a sprig. I'm sure that the Southern ladies could have told me how incredibly delicate they are. Even in water, I could actually see them wilting as I painted. Pink on the outside, white on the inside.

A Certain Kind of Light Oil on Canvas Mounted on Board, 16" x 16" Available at $50.00 plus shipping. This one is all shades of yellows, light oranges and greens. Olive mostly. To depict the kind of light that happens late in the afternoon. The Impressionists called it the "Golden Hour" and that makes perfect sense. It just is, lovely light.

Golden Glow Creek Oil on Canvas Board, 12" x 16" SOLD at $30.00 plus shipping. More creek painting. This one was done from a photo that I snapped in Maryland, and if I'm remembering right, it was sometime towards late afternoon, and there really was this orangey golden light everywhere. So beautiful. I didn't quite capture it, but it was a pleasure to paint.
