The Red Tree Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 6" x 6" x 1.5" SOLD at $45.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Detail of Left Side Below. I am still playing with the lovely photo card that my friend in Massachusetts sent to me. Here I've simply played with a small canvas, and some of the colors taken from the card. The image wraps around and above. I'll paint the bottom when it is dry enough to handle.

Subdued Lavender Hydrangea Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $45.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Sometimes my choice of subject is determined by how much paint I have leftover and what mixed colors. Today I worked on an impressionistic style painting (see below) and had loads of mixed pastels leftover. Aha, a lavender hydrangea. This one has nice subdued leaves, lots of grey green.

The Mother in Splendor Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 16" SOLD at $85.00 plus shipping. Oh, yeah, this one is bright. My best friend Barbara sent me a card made from a photo that she took at a pond near her home in Massachusetts. It was too beautiful to pass by, so I did this one this afternoon. (Thanks, B.)
November Colors 2 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" Revised, see November 10 posting. There was a lot of response to the painting of fall foliage the other day, so I did another version. This one has more of the golds and yellows in it, with pine branches framing it.

Blue Abstract Rose Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. This one started out as a rose, but became more abstracted as I painted it. It has suggestions of an opening bloom, but really is more just an abstract. With lots of yummy blues.

Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping.
The colors are still magnificent, especially when the sun hits them. Maples are dropping their leaves, but it's still gorgeous, and there's that smell, you know the one. That certain smell of fall.
