Those First Few Drops Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. I didn't mean for it to happen when I started, but the sky got rainy and I went with it. You can almost smell the ozone. The move is still ongoing, (my grey mood maybe?) more trips back to the old place, boxes everywhere in the new place, oh, la. Kids running around, U-Haul got stuck in the mud when the guys tried to save some steps and drove it into the grass. What a mess. I got settled enough to paint though, so we are getting back on track. I think I'll add a few dots of white in the water to represent those "first few drops."

Bay Inlet Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 16" SOLD at $80.00 plus shipping. I've had the photo reference for this one knocking around for about 5 years, ever since I took a weekend plein air class with Beth Kinsella Cople. The class met on the Eastern Shore, and it was wonderful. So today I dragged out the photo and used it as reference for this piece. My online class is doing landscapes this week, and some of the students want to paint water, so this one will become a step-by-step for them.
Grogan Road 3 Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 22" x 28" Wrap Depth is 1.5" SOLD This one was done by request, and the edges aren't done yet, since I'm waiting for it to dry, but it was a two day painting because of the size. It's been awhile since I've done one as large as this. I'm very pleased with the reults.
