May Magnolia - SOLD

May Magnolia Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I haven't done a floral in awhile, so pulled out my magnolia stems and came up with this one, for May, a magnolia blossom. Dramatic, all the white against a deep, dark red purple background (which looks black here.) Hope you're all having a gorgeous weekend. Nel

Dappled Creek Redux - SOLD

Dappled Creek Redux
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping.
Below is the original version.

Base painting.
I thought this one was done, but after spending so long in the field the other day, looking at this one again, it occurred to me that maybe it was under done. Maybe I have to be aware of underworking, not overworking. The bones, as you can see, are the same, but I went over most of it again, and made it more polished. Better, yes?

Papa Berry NA

Papa Berry Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" Revised on June 1, 2010. I had strawberries from two different containers, and this arrangement tickled me, all the little guys with one big one. It suggested an instructor..."If you want to get as big as me..." or maybe a storyteller, but in the end, I decided on a papa title. Fun, isn't it? Nel

Two Plein Air Paintings - SOLD

The Cut Through to Peppertree Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping.
School Yard 2
Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10"
Revised, SOLD.
The complex has contracted for new windows and screens in all the apartments, and today was our turn, for men who banged with hammers, drilled with drills, and carried things in and out. (The new windows and slider are lovely.) I fled to the field out back, and got 2 plein air paintings done. The first one, same thing as the other day, of the huge old trees up and across the hill, and then I followed the shade and faced the other way. I really took my time (waiting for the guys to be done) with it, and I am really pleased with the way the Cut Through turned out. You can just see our building through the trees.

Barre Roadside

Barre Roadside Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" Available at $70.00 plus shipping. I had several titles in mind for this one...Honeysuckle Bushes, Barely There Clouds...but in the end, decided to just call it what it is, a roadside in Barre, Massachusetts, from one of my photos. Working to get a feel of distance in more of my work. Thanks for looking! Nel
