Glass Bottles - SOLD

Glass Bottles Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping. I've seen such cool paintngs of glass bottles on Daily Painters that I wanted to try one. Well, this isn't one of the "cool" paintings, but as a first try, it's okay I guess. The next one will be better, I promise.

Last Fall Painting - SOLD

Last Fall Painting Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. I am really enjoying my Escoda Bristle Brush, it scrubs so well. I am probably abusing it unmercifully, but I do like the feel of scrubbing with the sides of the brush. This one was mostly done with that brush, except for the detail areas. It's always nice to find a toy you love.

Self Portrait Fall 2009 - SOLD

Self Portrait Fall 2009 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 16" SOLD. I had a couple of good Veteran's Day coupons from Michaels, so picked up a mirror yesterday to do this with. The really tricky thing about a self portrait for a truly near sighted artist, is looking in the mirror with your glasses on to see, and then trying to take them off for the look you want. Hmmm. This is not too bad, the eyes got too big and they look a little buggy, but I'll try to fix that. I wore the scarf to try to hide some of my "wattle" LOL. Last time I did a portrait of myself, I saw my brother Bruce in it, this time I just saw glimpses of "Jansen."

Turban Squash - SOLD

Turban Squash Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10" SOLD at $20.00 plus shipping. You know how all the grocery stores have cool squash out for sale right now? Well, there was a display of these incredible squashes called "Turban" squash. I really thought they were cool, and had fun doing a really swishy painting of the one I bought. However, I can't imagine anyone wanting to hang a squash on their kitchen wall, so I've priced it low. (Unless, you have a red or yellow kitchen and want the pop.)

November Colors 2 - SOLD

November Colors 2- revision Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I liked the "bones" of the painting from earlier, but it needed some polish, so today I had fun smushing color around to perk it up. Ah, much better. (Actually, the color's almost gone, but it WAS beautiful.)

Large Red Passion Hydrangeas - SOLD

Large Red Passion Hydrangeas
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 24" x 36"

This one is really big. I kept having to crawl around it to get to my painting spot, and I've been at it for a solid two days. But I'm happy with the overall look of it, and hope the collector will be too. I always procrastinate on the large paintings, just because they are a little scarey to do.

Muffins and Polka Dots - SOLD

Muffins and Polka Dots Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. I actually bought three of these muffins, and ate one, as I figured with an 8" x 8", two would be enough. I like this one with all the yellows, browns and oranges. You wouldn't think of muffins as orange, but when I went to paint them, it's the color I saw.
