Reflected Hydrangeas Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. For some reason, the Internet wasn't connecting at the house last night, so this is yesterday's painting. My daughter's bank of hydrangea bushes partly overhangs the koi pond, and I've been enjoying the reflections of lots of pinks and purples for a couple of weeks. Thinking, "I should paint that." So here's my attempt. Of course, I want to do it again, make it better.

Woodland Light Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. This subject has been done and done and done, but it's still lovely to paint the light on a creek or lake shoreline, with the sunlight bleaching colors on it's way through the foliage. One of my favorite things to paint. And, no buggies while you're there!

Louisiana Sky Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. Don't you love the sky when it starts to change colors in the evening? All the layers of color, all those lovely subtle tones, and the trees silhouetted against the light. This one is a small palette knife piece.

Walking Path, Brookside Oil on Canvas Panel, 16" x 20" SOLD. A walking path at Brookside Gardens in Maryland. It's one of those terrific gardens where there's something for everyone. The kids used to love playing in the greenhouse "jungle" with all it's little bridges and huge tropical trees. If you look closely, I've hidden my granddaughter's name "Katie" in the foliage. You'll probably have to enlarge to search.

Hydrangea on Mauve Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. There were a bunch of requests for yesterday's painting. I guess hydrangeas are a popular subject, and since I do enjoy painting them, all loose and swishy, here's another one, a bit larger and not on cradled board.
Seascape - SOLD Oil on Stretched Canvas 20" x 24" This is the larger painting that I've been working on lately. Both the gallery owner and I are happy with it, and I hope the collector will be too. The line on the horizon is actually more straight than this, but I got a little fish-eye effect in the photo.
