Seckel Pears 2 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 16" SOLD. I rearranged the pears and did another painting, since I had the canvas, and these guys are too pretty to use just once. I had several offers on yesterday's piece too, so it makes sense to go with the flow.

Seckel Pears Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 16" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. Kind of like all the long lemons, but with these gorgeous little pears that I found in the grocery store last night. Are you familiar with them? Called Seckel pears, they have two sided color, a deep reddish and a golden green. Just lovely.

Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 16"
SOLD at $115.00 plus shipping.
Another beach painting, since so many of you wrote to say I should do more figures. I liked the repose of the two ladies, contemplating, resting, enjoying the sunshine, one with her book in hand. There were more chairs and people in the photo reference, but I took them out...artistic license.

Lemons for Susan - SOLD Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 16" My sister-in-law wanted a lemons painting, so here's one more. These lemons did not want to stand in a straight line, so it's apt for a "Jansen", since we don't stand in straight lines either. But we do like making the best of what life serves up.

The Cut Through Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 16" Not Available. I actually got outside yesterday afternoon to do a plein air painting. Granted, it was the back patio, with quick access to bathroom and coffee, but plein air nonetheless. Behind my son's apartment on the first floor in this complex, there is a stretch of woods separating this property from a large church/school complex. People cut through to get to the road and bus system, and have created a nice little path just there. The light is wonderful to watch as it changes throughout the day. I've been meaning to paint it, and I think there will be a couple more, different times of the day, different light.

Classic Study- Grapes and Apple Oil on Stretched Canvas, 9" x 12" SOLD at $30.00 plus shipping. I didn't realize until I was half way through with this one, that I was using only blues, reds and grey mauvey mixes. It became a two color study, more or less, and I think it has a sort of "classic" feel to it. Very still, very quiet.
Poppies 2 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20" Not available, revised 9/8/2010. This one was on hold for a long while, but since I never heard back from the collector I am reducing the price and offering it again. Something bright for a dull corner, and the quick sale will help me afford my brake job ( rotors, yikes) on Henrietta the Honda.
