Apple Tumble on Green Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $35.00 plus shipping. Another apple painting on green, using the techniques from the new book. This one is for a collector who wanted yesterday's piece, but missed it, if she wants it. (Yes, she did.)

Goldens on Green Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $35.00 plus shipping. This is another painting done by trying to use the techniques in the book I'm studying right now. Except I did blend this one more than the first. I still like it, and I'm getting so much out of this book. (Capturing Radiant Light and Color with Oils and Soft Pastels, by Susan Sarback. )
Mountain Road with Stone Wall Oil on Stretched Canvas, 24" x 24" SOLD. This one turned out so nicely, though it appears a bit washed out here. It was a larger version of a plein air piece I did a few years ago when I was visiting a friend, Carl Wolfram, at his home in the mountains of Massachusetts. He and his friends made the stone wall, and it's huge and beautiful, although it doesn't appear that big here.

Goldens Color Study Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $30.00 plus $5.00 shipping. One of the nicest things about earning a paycheck is new art books and materials. The book I'm studying right now is called Capturing Radiant Light and Color in Oils and Soft Pastels by Susan Sarback. This is my first attempt at following her theories. Her method makes some good sense, and it's a shift in thinking that I'm finding very interesting.

Red and Yellow Tulip Oil on Stretched Canvas, 4" x 5" SOLD at $20.00 plus $5.00 shipping. I think this might be the smallest canvas I've ever done. It was one of the tulip paintings from this past weekend. Not a great painting, just a sweet little one.

Deep Pink Tulips 2 Oil on Gessobord, 8" x 10" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. Also done during the weekend, really the same colors as the one from yesterday, only a better photo, and a slightly different colored background. I still haven't decided whether I like the Gessobord or not. I did put two extra coats of Gesso on it before painting, it just seemed too slick otherwise.

Deep Pink Tulips Oil on Canvas Panel, 6" x 6" Gifted, Not Available. I had such positive responses to my tulips from last week that I stopped at the street vendor's cart again on Friday evening after work. He had deep pink and yellow-red bunches, though I was looking for the soft pink again. (Not quite ready for white or deep red yet.) I managed to get three small paintings done this weekend, and this is the first one. (Sorry for the terrible photo, too much glare.)
