Catching the Glow - SOLD

Catching the Glow Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. Detail Below. The bones of this one was a painting done last week, called "Partly Cloudy." NOW I'm pleased with it. It just took some careful palette knife re-working to harmonize it, and push and pull the values. The sky has a lot of lovely subtleties to it, which doesn't really show well in the photos. It's much richer now, too.

Perched Peppers - SOLD

Perched Peppers Oil on Stretched Canvas, 9" x 12" SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping. Detail below Figured I'd better use these peppers again, quick before I eat them. They are just such amazing colors.

Hydrangeas in Pottery Pitcher - SOLD

Hydrangeas in Pottery Pitcher Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 18" SOLD at $80.00 plus shipping. This one was first posted on July 6, and I was surprised that it didn't sell, since the hydrangeas are generally very popular. But then I thought maybe it was the odd colored yellow green background, which was a bit different, and maybe not fresh looking. So I've repainted the background, and softened up some of the darks in the cloth. Better?

Yellow and Lavender Irises - SOLD

Yellow and Lavender Irises Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. Every once in awhile, the irises call to me. This one went so smoothly, I love when that happens, it just floated off the brush. Started it last night, and finished it this morning. I wanted to name it "Oh, My Lovelies" but with keywords and so forth, you have to name it what it is.

Lemons in Blue Bowl - SOLD

Lemons in Blue Bowl Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. My cousins have a set of wonderful turquoise blue bowls, which of course, had to make their way into a painting sooner or later. Very fun having new "stuff" to play with. Nel

Partly Cloudy - NA

Partly Cloudy Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" Revised on July 17, 2010. Now called "Catching the Glow." I am a little ambivalent about this one. I like the parts of it, like the sky, like the water, like the trees, the grass, but it somehow could "harmonize" better. Still, a restful little scene, want to go wading? It's no real place, just an imaginary place. I'm thinking of hunting down a nearby lake this week. Nel

Strawberries on Turquoise - SOLD

Strawberries on Turquoise Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $35.00 plus $7.00 shipping. This one went easy this morning, glad I did it. Strawberries and avocados were on sale at our Girant this week. so that's what I'm eating (and painting.) Don't you like the drama of this one? Nel

Gone for a Walk - SOLD

Gone for a Walk Oil on Stretched Canvas, 18" x 24" SOLD at $100.00. Even though I haven't seen the ocean this summer (who knows, it could still happen) this beach painting is for an old high school friend, who has requested it. It's a composite, done from a set up in the back yard, some chairs and beach towels I found to shoot, and some older photos of the water and sky. Does it give you summertime thoughts? It does me. (The horizon is actually straight, but because it's a bigger canvas, I got the fish eye effect.) Nel
