Large White Peony Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20" SOLD at $100.00 plus shipping. I've had this one drawn out for a few days, and spray fixed, but waited until yesterday to begin it. It takes awhile to paint a good sized piece like this, so finished it up today. Don't you love peonies? I've done this one in watercolors before, so this time it's with oils.

Christmas Tree, 2009 Pen and Ink, watercolor, and markers on Cream Paper, 9" x 12" SOLD at $25.00, includes shipping. A Blessed Christmas, everyone! I hope that this day, you have the blessings of our Lord in your life and in your heart. What more could we hope for, a closer walk with Him. One of my collectors reminded me that a couple of years ago, I did a pen and ink of my daughter's Christmas tree in Massachusetts. So I did one for this year, a little different, and maybe it will become a tradition for this blog. This was so restful to do, all those patient little scritchy lines, which seems to me relaxing, just stroke along until it fills in. I am happy with the results, it seems a bit Victorian looking, don't you think?

View from my Window Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $55.00 plus shipping. I generally have my back to this window, to catch the light, but the snow is still so lovely, that I turned my chair around today to paint this. Of course, with the wild growth, there is a lot more vine and scrap, but I condensed it. For those of you who celebrate Christmas Eve, I hope that yours is meaningful and precious.

Christmas Poinsettia Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" NA, Revised Dec 1, 2010. One of my collectors asked me about holiday images recently...like, hey, when? LOL. So, I figured I'd better do something besides a watercolor with my lovely poinsettia plant. The grey shadow (top, center) was a cast shadow from my easel, and isn't in the painting.

Landscape Series, Number 4: Snow Colors Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" Gifted. I loved all the snow yesterday, and was thinking about a painting in greys and whites, but today is sunblasted, with drifts everywhere, just gorgeous. So instead I did one of the series with today's colors.
