Wild Azaleas - NA

Wild Azaleas
Oil on Canvas Panel, 10" x 10"
Not available, revised 7/11/2011

The azaleas are in beautiful bloom right now in Maryland, and the colors are stunning. I see them in the neighborhoods, everywhere. This is an imaginary landscape with some of the spring bloom colors tapped in. Isn't it nice?

Pink Dogwoods

Pink Dogwoods Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" Available at $65.00 plus shipping. Same view as the previous post, but under an overcast sky. And substituting pink for white dogwoods. I don't do buildings very well, so it's good to practice and work on getting better at architecture, all that perspective and all those straight lines.

Spring Greens and Dogwoods - NA

Spring Greens and Dogwoods
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
Not available.
 Sitting on a friend's back deck, looking out over the suburban backyards, dogwoods in bloom, and afternoon sunshine. This one is actually nicer than the photo shows, lots of good contrast, lots of that lovely young green.

Mixed Apples on Red - SOLD

Mixed Apples on Red Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. Revised from Apples on the Edge, March 28, 2010. I changed the background on this, and I think the color works better now.

Going Green - SOLD

Going Green Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $30.00 plus shipping. I should have posted this one yesterday, right? All this green. Thanks for looking.

Light Play Landscape - SOLD

Light Play Landscape Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. I had some lovely red peppers all set up to paint, but once I got sketching them, decided that today was instead an easy and fun little imaginary landscape. Just wanted to swish some paint on the canvas. With landscapes, where I really want to learn is how to paint light and air. Pushing in that direction anyway.

Golden Lit Creek - SOLD

Golden Lit Creek Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 18" SOLD at $100 plus shipping. Not the best photo, but a really nice painting. At least I'm pleased with it. It's got a nice warm glow to it, and is fairly good sized.

Dappled Creek - NA

Dappled Creek Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" Not available, redone on May 7, 2010. I'm pleased with this one, and it feels like a nice change from all the "window view" paintings that I've been doing lately. Nothing like a good landscape, and it seems there's a small series going here, creek scenes. Nel

Spring Forest - NA

Spring Forest Oil on Stretched Linen, 11" x 14" Not available, see revised version 4/28/10. I always think it's a treat to paint on linen, but I forget to take advantage of it's fine properties, and wind up painting as I normally would. One of these days I'll remember to paint something fine and careful on linen.

Rocky Creek NA

Rocky Creek Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 12" x 12" x 1.5" wrap Not available, revised on May 12, 2010. Detail of Edge below. This one is gallery wrapped and painted around the edges, so no frame is needed. One of my favorite subjects, creeks with dappled water.
