The Red Maple - SOLD

The Red Maple
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 16"
SOLD at $100, includes shipping.

I wanted something big today, and I am very pleased with the way this one turned out. I put on NPR and just zoned out, painting. I like the feeling of clear air in this one, and the disappearing path.

Sunflowers in Abstract Yellow - SOLD

Sunflowers in Abstract Yellow
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10"
SOLD at $45.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

I actually really like this one. I started with a realistic effort, and then when it wasn't working, began to wipe off the canvas. Halfway through the wipe, I liked what was happening, and decided to "go with the flow" and this is the result. Cool, huh?

Sunflowers on Dark - SOLD

Sunflowers on Dark Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. This will be the last of the sunflower paintings for awhile. Well, at least until I buy more stems, that is. The background isn't really black, but a mixture of phthalo green and magenta paint.

Sunflowers - SOLD

Sunflowers Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $35.00 plus shipping. Don't you love sunflowers? They are hard to paint though. I am anxious for another stab at these tomorrow.

Lake Needwood Demo Painting

Lake Needwood Demo Painting Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" Available at $45.00 plus shipping. This morning was an open house, fall kick off at the Chevy Chase Women's Club, and art teachers were well represented. I brought along my plein air gear, and set up for a little demo painting, deciding to do a landscape from a photo rather than a still life (which would have meant hauling along stuff to set up.) This was what resulted.

Mini Fruit Tart Sketch - SOLD

Mini Fruit Tart Sketch
Oil on Canvas Panel, 5" x 7"
SOLD at $20.00 plus $5.00 shipping.
I know I bought too many things to paint yesterday...donuts, a mini fruit tart, some sunflowers, now I'm feeling pressure to use what I bought, and rushed through this little painting. So it's a sketch in oils, which is also valid. Maybe I'll try it again, take more time. Or maybe I'll just do the sunflowers....

Seckels and Stripes Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $80.00 plus shipping. Another version of the Pears and new bowls, reversing the direction of the dishtowel and the stack of the bowls, green on the outside this time around. Lots of red stripes in this one!

Little Muffin - SOLD

Little Muffin Oil on Panel, 6" x 6" SOLD at $30.00 plus $5.00 shipping. A simple little painting of a golden muffin (corn.) I picked it for the top, which was a little more interesting than the others on offer.
