Dunes and Water Thoughts Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. Just because it's very cold, very windy, very winterish here today, thoughts of summer creep into my head. This one is very sketchy and loose, some palette knife work, some swishy brush work. Once in awhile you get to "slop" paint around.

Large Pink Peony Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 18" SOLD at $90.00 plus shipping. 2010, I like the way that gets said: twenty-ten. Happy second decade, and a blessed new year, new beginning. Thanks to all of you who have been so supportive, with encouraging notes, and many purchases. It keeps me going, that's for sure. I'm not much of one for making goals and resolutions, but I do feel that I need to stretch a lot this coming year with my painting. Really want to get some workshops and instruction under my belt. I've gotten a little stagnant lately. Need to move on, move on, grow, evolve, do more, do better...you know that feeling. Here's to a great year for all of us!

Sun Glazed Maples, revised Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. This one was a bit too dark, I thought, so revised it and am offering it again, with a slightly lower price. A good blast of color for this end of the year piece.

Mugs and Pears Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 16" Gifted, NA. Ovals are so tricky to paint, I take my hat off to the still life painters who use a lot of plates and cups in their work. Hope you are all staying warm, enjoying this mid-holiday week, and here's good news: the days are getting longer, yay!

Hydrangea Horizontal Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 16" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. I am running low on my favorite sizes of canvas, but did have a couple of these panels in the long size. Thinking about what I could use it for today, I decided to just lay out one of my stems of hydrangea and see what I could do. What do you think?

Funky Stack Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10" SOLD at $30.00 plus shipping. Today was mostly babysitting and running around, so I only had a couple of short hours to paint tonight. Some of my collectors surprise me when they like the rough and tumble paintings, so even though this one is very sketchy, very rough, I thought I'd put it up anyway.

Dusty Rose, Gallery Wrapped Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" x 7/8" SOLD at $45.00, includes shipping. This one will need no frame, unless preferred. I am painting all around the sides, continuing the image. I like this one, not so much for the rose, as for the color. That dusty, almost pink, but with brown, rose color.
