Little Pansy Face - SOLD

Little Pansy Face Oil on Board, 6" x 6" SOLD at $20.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Browsing at the DC Utrecht store yesterday, I thought I was being so clever when I saw and snagged a package of 4 aquaboards for around $4.00. Wow, what a deal, and no bad corners in the bunch. However, I will Gesso the other three, since this one absorbed all the oil out of my oils as soon as I painted. Odd way to paint, so the pansy is not as nice as I hoped. Nel

The Duck Pond - SOLD

The Duck Pond
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 18" x 18"
SOLD at $150.00, includes shipping. Detail below

This is the largest piece I've tried yet with the palette knives, and I thought I'd never be done with it today. One of the challenges with this one was to show some of the shallows, which I probably wasn't bold enough to really go for. But the suggestion is there. I especially like the sky and trees in this one. Nel

Fall Reflections - SOLD

Fall Reflections Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SLD at $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Revised from Painting Below. What do you think? Better? I lowered the horizon line, and made the sky more interesting, changed the colors to be more subtle, and turned the bare trees into leafy trees. I like it better now, wonder if you do. Nel PS. Check the blog for a small give away for my students and collectors.

Give Away Painting

Give Away Painting Oil on Canvas Panel, 6" x 8" Appreciation Painting. Won by Dana Pritchard. My students will recognize this one. It was one of their exercises in value study for the class in oils we just finished. It was done from a photo by Martyn Pattison, called Path Through the Woods at Lambdown Hill. It has a creative commons tag on it, so it was okay for teaching and studying, but I can't sell it.'s a give away. If you like it, and are either a former student or have bought one of my pieces within the past year or so (I'm not checking) please leave a comment here on the blog. Thanks for all the encouragement and support! Nel Addendum: Congratulations to Dana Pritchard, winner of this little piece.

Study in Grey - SOLD

Study in Grey Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 12" x 12" x 1.5" No Frame Needed. SOLD at $80.00 plus shipping. Detail of Knife Work below. I put down a wash of yellow on the sky and water, and a wash of blue on the land, in anticipation of trying a sublte study in greyswith the palette knives. All my mixes were greyed, either with their complements or with a tube grey. Nice, huh? I like the softness of it. The painting extends around top, sides and bottom, so no framing is necessary. Nel

Textured Fruit on Red - SOLD

Textured Fruit on Red Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping. This started out three times to be a gorgeous rose, leftover from a really unusual bouquest from Mother's Day (rose red on the outside of the petals, yellow on the inside, spectacular) but it just wasn't making sense, roses are hard. So I wiped it off after the third attempt and just did some fruit instead, which turned out a little ho-hum, but might be a bright spot in a corner somewhere.
