Chamberlain Farm - SOLD

Chamberlain Farm
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 18" x 24"

A Pennsylvannia farm on the cusp of winter, some trees with leaves still clinging, some already bare. Done for one of my dear, old high school friends.

Yellow and Purple Pansies, NA

Yellow and Purple Pansies
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10"
Revised on 5/26/2011

A little more traditinal approach, but still not much blending. So pretty, these little guys with their yellow faces.

Winter Trees - SOLD

Winter Trees
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 9" x 12"

This is another "homework" painting, done for the Webinar I'm taking. The idea was to learn how to depict bare winter trees, branches, twigs. Don't you love the subtle winter colors, and always a few oak leves clinging until spring.

Early Pansies - SOLD

Early Pansies
Oil on Canvas Panel, 6" x 8"
SOLD at $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

I've never done pansies this way, just swishing paint onto the canvas, without careful drawing beforehand. It's a fun way to paint, but I'm not sure yet about the way it looks, as opposed to a more careful approach.

Triple Sunflowers - SOLD

Triple Sunflowers
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10"
SOLD at $45.00 plus $10.00 shipping.

Sunflowers again, this time faced in three directions. Fun to do, in loose, swishy strokes.

Look Both Ways - SOLD

Look Both Ways
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $45.00 plus $7.00 shipping.

When I was at the grocery store the other day, I was looking for daffodils. I think I may have missed them this year, since the only ones they had were pathetic, tiny, frayed at the edges. So I got these guys instead. Not exactly springy, but yellow flowers anyway. I liked the idea of the two directions, like kids being taught to look both ways before crossing.

Strawberries on White - SOLD

Strawberries on White
Oil on Canvas Panel, 6" x 8"
SOLD at $20.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

A quick study, using up some of my little panels. I've tried to "fill up" my ebay store again this morning with new paintings, and revised work (red tulips.) A couple of them are copies of other people's work, so I've posted them with very low starting bids ($1.00) to simply recover my canvas and paint costs. Thanks for looking!

Tree Study 3 - SOLD

Tree Study 3
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16"

This one is a direct copy of the instructor's demonstration. I did it last week after watching the demo by Johannes Vloothuis, given in conjunction with his course (wonderful) through Wet Canvas. Since it is a copy, I am only trying to recover my canvas and paint cost, hence the low starting bid.

I found this printout of a painting I really liked, stuck in a book, as I'm wont to do. (Bet it's awhile since you've seen that word used.) The only clue I have is the signature, and it's either R.S. Brown or V.S. Brown, can't quite tell. I've googled them both, and can't find a listing. At any rate, this is a copy of someone else's painting, so I'm only out to recover my paint and canvas costs.

Two Red Onions

My fascination with onions continues. The colors are wonderful, but elusive.

Soft Winter Colors
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"

I'm not sure about this one, if it works or not, but I do like the colors.
