Lily for Easter Oil on Canvas Mounted on Board, 16" x 16" (approx.) SOLD at $100.00, includes shipping. There was such a response to the Night Lily I did that I am doing a couple more. Not all in a row, but eventually. This seemed appropriate too, for Easter. May it be a blessed day for you, of celebration of the Lord's goodness to us, and His victory over death. I wonder if the angels in Heaven celebrate the day? Or is it Easter every day there?

Watercolor in Spring Green Watercolor on Arches paper, 12" x 16" SOLD at $45.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Spring green, and lavender mostly. Great combination of colors. I like the detail in this one, lots of brush marks and a few splatters, touches of blue green here and there. I'm happy with the results.

Dark Velvet Iris Oil on Canvas Mounted on Board, 16" x 16" SOLD at $85.00 plus shipping. Mostly I wanted to see if this canvas would behave beter wih gesso on it, and indeed it did. So now I know. The iris just caught my eye in my photo stack, and I cropped the photo to a square. Don't you like how rich that deep, deep red-purple is? The touch of cobalt blue is almost icy next to the darks.

Amaryllis in Oils Oils on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. This is painted from the same blossom I used on Sunday, it's lasted well. Though the wind and the chilly snap has not been kind to the stems outside. It has a real "red" presence, for a spot where bright red would work. It was nice to do today, after working in small areas yesterday (strawberries). I think that 10" x 10" squares and up to 14" x 14" are my favorite sizes to work on. Love the square format.

Bowl with "Heart" Berries Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping (for VB) Another painting with strawberries, done by request. I also wanted to include a detail, for one of my students who wants to paint strawberries. The little highlights really make them sparkle. Look for the little ovals in the highlights, squint in order to really spot them.

Amaryllis Face Watercolor on Arches 140 lb Paper, 6" x 6" SOLD at $15.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Here in Louisiana, the amaryllis grows in the ground. Outside. Not in January pots indoors. This is very new. I've never seen these gorgeous flowers growing outdoors, they are in yards all over. My daughter has a huge, mature plant that is now sporting around 12 blooms. One of the most perfect blooms just "happened" to fall off the stem, while I was looking at it. So of course, I had to paint it. I did paint the whole blossom, but without a background, it needed to be cropped.
