Oranges with White Bowl - SOLD

Oranges with White Bowl Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $70.00 plus shipping Today I used the same still life, very simple, but used all the color I wanted. (I did cut a fresh ornage for the slices.) Actually, it was more difficult than yesterday's. More options, more color matching efforts.

Study in Orange and Blue - SOLD

Study in Orange and Blue Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD This one is done only in two colors plus white. I chose Prussian Blue and a mix of Cadmium Orange and Winsor Orange ( a reddish orange color.) It's done with this artists network challenge in mind, (and up for winning is $50.00 worth of books from North Light. ) Also, my niece, Emily, is getting trained and preparing to serve on the mission field in Kenya for a year, and raising her support money. Her blog is here. She is very excited about becoming a dorm resident director at one of the mission schools in Kenya. The proceeds from this painting will go to her support, and I will chip in for shipping. Please consider what you would like to pay for the painting... I am suggesting between $50 and $100 to make a small dent in her financial needs. Thanks in advance.

Summer Daydreaming - SOLD

Summer Daydreaming
with Detail of Foliage
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 16"
SOLD at $80.00 plus shipping.
This one turned out so well, I think. I really like the foliage on it, there's some nice touches of earthy brown (Transparent Red Oxide) showing. Farm buildings nestled across a grassy field, with a summer sky clearing above.

Pear Upended - NA

Pear Upended Oil on Canvas Panel, 6" x 8" Not Available. I know I said no more pears from this series, but just one more today. I like how it feels like you're looking down on it, as I was.

Strawberries Squared - SOLD

Strawberries Squared Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $45.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Quick, before these strawberries are really dead and smushy, get a strawberry piece done. I painted for one of the new galleries this morning, so I raced the sunlight to get this done for the blog. (No lights yet, so I need daylight to paint.) I think it turrned out pretty well, in spite of rushng.

Creekside - SOLD

Creekside Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 16" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I really wish that you could see the subtleties of the colors in this one. It turned out beautifully. Even the digital photo does not do it justice. There is a real sense of light in the water and the foliage. There is a lot more "depth" of color in the water than appears here.
