Blue Glazed Drape with Apples Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" Available at $40.00 plus shipping. This is another of my revised pieces. It looked like this before I revised it today. Much better, yes? I glazed the greenish looking drapery with blues.

December Garlic Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping. I did this milder version earlier this fall, and decided that I really wanted to punch it up. Good day to be inside painting, with the snow and slippery roads in the DC area today. A nice time at class this morning, when my dear ladies surprised me with a Christmas treat, a nice fat GC to Plaza Art, our local fine arts store, yeehaw! Thanks, ladies!

Red Pears Watercolor Watercolor on Aquabord, 8" x 8" Available at $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping. This one is on Aquabord, which is a wooden panel, treated to accept watercolor. I will be spray-fixing it, and then a coat of varnish, so it can be framed like an oil or an acrylic, with no glass or matting (unless you want it.) It can be shipped tomorrow.

I've been working on a follow up class for my alumni for awhile now, adding ideas, reading and studying on my own. And I've gotten things to the stage in the writing where I can start enrolling. Class will begin the week of January 10, 2011, and with a couple of weeks off, we'll finish up the second week in March. Perfect for getting through the cold months. We have a new Yahoo group for the class, where lessons will be posted: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Intermediate_Oils and we will also have a new Flickr group or you can simply put your work on your own Flickr or blog, as before. You can enroll with this button, but also send me an email, so I can "invite" you to the new group. Cost of the class is $75.00.

Field and Sky Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. I really want to work on skies this coming year. Clouds are something I've never been able to do to my own satisfaction, so there's one of my art goals right there. Though these clouds are fluffy and colored okay, they don't have the magic that I'm after. However, not a bad landscape, I like the colors in the field a lot, and that little bit of frost suggested.

Pears on Cherry Napkin Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $65.00 plus $10.00 shipping. One of the things I bought awhile back at Tuesday Morning was cloth napkins. This is one of my favorites, but I hadn't used it in a painting yet. It just seemed to be the time. Made for a bit of a busy painting, but with the contrsting color of the pears, I think it works.
