Red Floral '09 - SOLD

Red Floral '09 Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I've done this one before. One of my collectors saw it and liked it, and requested a repeat. I think this one turned out nicely, the little tiny red flowers add to it. Lots of color here, lots of drama.

Just a Hydrangea - SOLD

Just a Hydrangea Oil on Linen Panel, 6" x 6" SOLD $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping. One of my collectors suggested "Just a Hydrangea" in blue, so this is for her, if she likes it. Thanks for the idea!

Long Landscape - SOLD

Long Landscape Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 16" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. Detail Below. Another palette knife landscape, also covering up another painting that didn't work. This time I was able to do a bit of manipulating with clouds and sky. That seems to have worked. This is a fairly bright painting, lots of fresh color, not much subdued here. You can see from the detail how much paint gets layered on the canvas this way.

Just a Pear - SOLD

Just a Pear Oil on Linen Panel, 6" x 6" SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Slowly using up my very small panels. I was thinking about "taking a stand" while I was painting this one, and how sometimes that's fairly precarious, as this pear seems to be. A little ponder for painting.

Grogan Road, Barre - SOLD

Grogan Road, Barre Oil on Stretched Canvas, 18" x 24" SOLD at $80.00 plus shipping. This is one of my favorite paintings, but it never sold. I did some revising on it, and thought I'd offer it again, and lower the price a bit. It does have some presence , at the larger size. I love the light on the tree trunks here.

Forest Fantasy Walk - SOLD

Forest Fantasy Walk Oil on Canvas Panel, 16" x 20" SOLD at $65.00 plus $15.00 shipping. This is a repeat of the Techniques Landscape I did a couple of weeks back, done by request for a collector who wanted that one, but it was already sold. I used both brush and palette knife for this one, mostly the knife, since it makes such neat marks. I left the underpainting to dry overnight, and then went back on top with the knife, which worked out well. Since I had the first painting to work from, this one is more deliberate looking.

Blustery - SOLD

Blustery Oil on Gessoed Board, approx. 16" x 16" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. Detail Below A combination painting, some brushwork, some palette knife work. I do like the palette knife for foliage, but not so much for sky and water, though I did use it a little in both areas. I really am happy with the sky in this one, and if you wanted to, you could saw the bottom of the painting right off, to accentuate the sky more. I mean, of course, if you bought it, you could, LOL.

Transitions Pepper - SOLD

Transitions Pepper Oil on Linen Panel, 6" x 6" SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Another in the "Just a..." series, using up the little linen panels. This was an interesting pepper, with a lovely gradual transition color from green to yellow.

Palette Knife Landscape - SOLD

Palette Knife Landscape Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8" SOLD at $20.00 plus $5.00 shipping. I worked on two terrible paintings today, and gave up. Not my day to paint, one is scraped off, the other is about to be scraped. But I did this one the other day, just a simple imaginary scene, without much to it. Done with the palette knife, I wanted to see if a sky would work. Not so well, but the land seems to be very easy with the palette knife, foilage especially.
