Backyard Autumn - SOLD

Backyard Autumn Oil on Stretched Canvas, 18" x 24" SOLD at $100.00 plus $15.00 shipping. I originally posted this one earlier this fall at $225, but it never sold at that price. It does me little good on my wall, even though it's a successful piece, so I figured I'd clear it out at a lower price. It's a good sized piece, and has some "presence." Good to get rid of some older paintings, I'm revising a couple today, which I'll post later (they are already sold, however, to one of my clever regular collectors.)

Clementines and Bowl - SOLD

Clementines and Bowl
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLS at $65.00 plus shipping.

This is a study in two colors plus white. I used the complementary set of Ultramarine Blue and Cadmium Orange plus white. Limiting, but fun.

Christmas Tree 2010 - SOLD

Christmas Tree, 2010 Pen and Ink with Gouache on Paper, 9" x 12" SOLD. I was so blessed last evening to be able to go to a wonderful service at my brother's church...wonderful singing, wonderful worship, a thought provoking message. It's here, already on their web site, so you can hear it too, if you are inclined. (Covenant Life Church) I wish you all a meaningful Christmas, touched with warmth, music, laughter, good food, good family and friends, and a Christ centered year!

Monday, December 20, 2010

Little Pond - SOLD

Little Pond Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping. I love putting golden light in skies. A bit of orange, red, and it makes the sky just glow. Combination of brushwork and palette knife.

Little Blue Pitcher - SOLD

Little Blue Pitcher
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD

I really didn't think I'd get one done today, but I pushed this evening, and yes, here we go, a new painting. A bit high key, I moved my light to the opposite side from usual and I'm not used to it yet. Don't you like the pitcher, though? A find at one of my student's church's tag sale.

Saturday, December 18, 2010

Blue Glazed Drape with Apples

Blue Glazed Drape with Apples Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" Available at $40.00 plus shipping. This is another of my revised pieces. It looked like this before I revised it today. Much better, yes? I glazed the greenish looking drapery with blues.

Thursday, December 16, 2010

December Garlic - SOLD

December Garlic Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping. I did this milder version earlier this fall, and decided that I really wanted to punch it up. Good day to be inside painting, with the snow and slippery roads in the DC area today. A nice time at class this morning, when my dear ladies surprised me with a Christmas treat, a nice fat GC to Plaza Art, our local fine arts store, yeehaw! Thanks, ladies!

Red Pears Watercolor

Red Pears Watercolor Watercolor on Aquabord, 8" x 8" Available at $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping. This one is on Aquabord, which is a wooden panel, treated to accept watercolor. I will be spray-fixing it, and then a coat of varnish, so it can be framed like an oil or an acrylic, with no glass or matting (unless you want it.) It can be shipped tomorrow.

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

Lemons with Pear Napkin - SOLD

Lemons on Pear Napkin Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. People seem to like my cloth napkins, so here's another one. This one I've used before under pears. This time with some lemons.

Intermediate Oils Class Online

I've been working on a follow up class for my alumni for awhile now, adding ideas, reading and studying on my own. And I've gotten things to the stage in the writing where I can start enrolling. Class will begin the week of January 10, 2011, and with a couple of weeks off, we'll finish up the second week in March. Perfect for getting through the cold months. We have a new Yahoo group for the class, where lessons will be posted: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Intermediate_Oils and we will also have a new Flickr group or you can simply put your work on your own Flickr or blog, as before. You can enroll with this button, but also send me an email, so I can "invite" you to the new group. Cost of the class is $75.00.

Lemons and Mustard Bowl - SOLD

Lemons and Mustard Bowl
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8"
SOLD.

I wanted a warm painting. The background is not one of my usual colors, but it does look warm. (It's 23 degrees outdoors, no wonder I wanted warm!)

Field and Sky - SOLD

Field and Sky Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. I really want to work on skies this coming year. Clouds are something I've never been able to do to my own satisfaction, so there's one of my art goals right there. Though these clouds are fluffy and colored okay, they don't have the magic that I'm after. However, not a bad landscape, I like the colors in the field a lot, and that little bit of frost suggested.

Sunday, December 12, 2010

Pears on Cherry Napkin - SOLD

Pears on Cherry Napkin Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $65.00 plus $10.00 shipping. One of the things I bought awhile back at Tuesday Morning was cloth napkins. This is one of my favorites, but I hadn't used it in a painting yet. It just seemed to be the time. Made for a bit of a busy painting, but with the contrsting color of the pears, I think it works.

Saturday, December 11, 2010

White Onion - SOLD

White Onion Oil on Artbord Panel, 6" x 6" SOLD at $20.00 plus $5.00 This is the last of my fall paintings that were claimed but not purchased. This one is all set to go, so no waiting.

Thursday, December 09, 2010

Red Delicious Apples - SOLD

Red Delicious Apples Oil on Linen Panel, 9" x 12" SOLD at $45.00 plus $7.00 shipping. Every once in awhile I treat myself to some linen. It is just so delicious to paint on, a completely different feel from cotton canvas. This is one of those splurge paintings. Didn't the apples turn out nicely?

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

Amherst Autumn - SOLD

Amherst Autumn Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $50.00 plus $10.00 shipping. This one was claimed but never purchased. So I've dropped the price, and am offering it again. It is dry, signed and varnished, so can go out right away, in time for a nice Christmas gift for someone who loves these kinds of colors.

Monday, December 06, 2010

Grandma's Kids - SOLD

Grandma's Kids
Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 12" x 24" x 1.25"
SOLD.

This is one of the last of my Christmas commissions. It was hard to push myself to do it, figures are hard, but once I got into the painting part, it was fun. One of the little guys still gets a couple of back -of -the -ear pieces for his glasses, but otherwise done. Isn't it sweet?

Sunday, December 05, 2010

November Pansies Repost - SOLD

November Pansies, Repost Oil on Artbord, 8" x 8" x 1/2" SOLD at $40.00 plys $5.00 shipping. This one was posted in November and was wanted ("sold"), but never redeemed or paid for. So now becomes available again. The edges are painted, so no frame is needed.

Saturday, December 04, 2010

Rock Creek, Palette Knife - SOLD

Rock Creek, Palette Knife Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 16" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. If you have been watching my work for a time, you know that I love painting landscapes with lottsa trees and maybe a creek. This is from one of my fall photos in Rock Creek. I really like the front shadows.

Friday, December 03, 2010

Bay Sunset - SOLD

Bay Sunset Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $40.00 plus $8.00 shipping. OK. I did paint this afternoon, but didn't get one done. So here's this sunset one last time, with the water darkened. I promise that I won't post it again.

Thursday, December 02, 2010

Two Apples, Pears and Bowls - SOLD

Two Apples, Pears and Bowls Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. Time for a still life. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

Poinsettia 2010 - SOLD

Poinsettia 2010 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. This is one from last year that didn't sell at $75.00. It was probably too close to Christmas, but I've always liked it. So I pulled it out this morning, and spruced it up a little, darkening some of the reds, brightening up the background a little. It might make a nice "get it out for the holidays" painting for someone.

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Red Barn Three - SOLD

Red Barn Three Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 18" SOLD. This is another one of the red barn paintings, this one larger by request. I even had a little room for the fence on this one. Thanks for looking.

Monday, November 29, 2010

Winter Hydrangeas - SOLD

Winter Hydrangeas Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $55.00 plus shipping. Don't you just love these colors? Even dried out from the bush, these are gorgeous flowers.

Sunday, November 28, 2010

Deep Fall Hydrangeas - SOLD

Deep Fall Hydrangeas Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. I've had a wonderful time away. I was invited to go along to the Eastern shore with my dear cousin's family, and filled my senses with the wonderful sights, sounds and smells particular to "the beach house". Now back refreshed, thankful. And on the way back, I clipped some still beautifully colored hydrangeas off my cousin's back bushes. Ahhh. I've got another painting for tomorrow, slightly larger.

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Dried Hydrangea, Aubergine Bowl - SOLD

Dried Hydrangea, Aubergine Bowl Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping. This was a timed painting with bristle brushes, so very fast, and very loose. (I gave myself one hour, but did go a little over.)

The Cut River - SOLD

The Cut River Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 12" x 12" x 1.5" SOLD. I'm trying to get some of my Christmas commissions done now, so they'll have time to dry and get shipped before the holiday is here. This is one of them.

Monday, November 22, 2010

Sunflower Brights - SOLD

Sunflower Brights Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. I'm done with these guys for now. Sunflowers are tough, they either turn out magically, or they flop. There doesn't seem to be much in between.

Sunday, November 21, 2010

Orange Dyed Sunflowers

Orange Dyed Sunflowers Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" Available at $65.00 plus $10.00 shipping. I couldn't resist these orange sunflowers when I spotted them in the grocery store. Fun. The water turned red, so I knew they were dyed. A swish painting for today.

Saturday, November 20, 2010

Red Bowl with Pears - SOLD

Red Bowl with Pears Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. A revision of an earlier painting also called Red Bowl with Pears. I changed the background and brightened up everything else. Much better.

A set of pansies for a collector's request.

Thursday, November 18, 2010

Dried Hydrangea

Dried Hydrangea Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" Available at $45.00 plus $5.00 shipping. When my friend, B. and I wandered around Tuesday Morning recently, she spotted this great bowl in a cool mauvey-brown color, and pointed out that it would be perfect for a hydrangea blossom. I bought it, and have been planning to do that ever since.

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Lake Needwood, Fall 2 - SOLD

Lake Needwood, Fall 2 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 16" SOLD at $45.00 plus $5.00 shipping. For a collector who liked yesterday's paintig, and asked for a repeat. Isn't it interesting the differences?

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Fall, Lake Needwood - SOLD

Fall, Lake Needwood Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 16" SOLD at $50.00 plus $5.00 shipping. It's been a seemingly "long" fall here in Maryland. We still have gorgeous colors, and in the rain today, so rich. This is from a photo I took at Lake Needwood a few weeks back.

Marti's Irises - SOLD

Marti's Irises Watercolor on Paper, Paper size full sheet 22" x 30" Image size 19" x 24" SOLD. An iris watercolor today, done by request.

Intimate Iris - SOLD

Intimate Iris
Watercolor on Aquabord, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $30.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

I am running low on canvas, and have a watercolor to do, so thought I'd play with this little piece of Aquabord. With this, you only have to spray fix the watercolor (which I'll do, like a varnish), and then it's sealed, and you can frame it like an oil or acrylic, no glass. Cool, huh?

Friday, November 12, 2010

Peaches Lined Up - SOLD

Peaches Lined Up
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 16"
SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping.

These guys were harder than I thought they'd be. All those colors, frosty mauves, bright yellows, oranges, reds, deep red-purples, tricky.

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Just Peachy 2 - SOLD

Just Peachy 2 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD as replacement painting. My friend sold her painting, Just Peachy, to someone else, and asked me to make a replacement painting. I tried to come as close as I could to her original, and this is what came out of it. Hope you're happy with it, D!

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Agricultural Park - SOLD

Agricultural Park Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping. It was so beautiful today in Maryland, that I hooked up with some of the Montgomery County Plein Air folks, and ventured out to our lovely agricultural park. I didn't last for more than 3 hours though, cold ears from the wind, glare on my canvas (from insisting on being in the sun) and chilly hands. I liked the dapples on this little shed.

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Pink Pansies

Pink Pansies Oil on Board, 8" x 8" Available at $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping. I kow, have you ever seen pink pansies? I never had, but found these, here at the tail end of the flowering season. Good old Home Depot.

Peony Tweaked - SOLD

Peony Tweaked Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 16" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I always liked this one (Peony Bud Opening), and figured maybe I could tweak it up a bit and change the background color, and offer it again. I think the blue is better (it used to be green in the background.)

Sunday, November 07, 2010

November Pansies - SOLD

November Pansies
Oil on Gessoboard, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

This panel has a small thickness of about 1/2" which will be painted. The panel has slots in the back for hanging, so once the edges are painted, it will need no framing. Happy to find pansies still at the Home Depot, besides all the mums and Christmas trees (potted ones, of course.)

Amherst Autumn Two - SOLD

Amherst Autumn Two Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20" SOLD at $115.00 plus $10.00 shipping. This one is pretty big, and was intended as yesterday's post, but it just didn't seem to want to be finished, so I worked on it some more today. It's a lot of canvas to cover lovingly and I'm quite pleased with the results.
