Plein Air at the Chevy Chase Women's Club - SOLD

Plein Air at the CCWC
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $15.00 plus $10.00 shipping.

I did this one as a demo at class, and wasn't thrilled with the results. But then, I wasn't keen on the plein air piece from Brookside either, and the response to that one has been surprising. Hmm. So I decided I'd post this one, and see what you all think. The azaleas were gorgeous that day, and it was clear and bright. A few of my ladies did try their hand at plein air.

Rock Creek Spring - SOLD

Rock Creek Spring
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at $115.00, includes shipping.

I'm happy with this one. It has a good mood to it, sunny, fresh. I like the rocks, which have nice shadow colors, I think. It's one of my favorite subjects.

Painting at Brookside Gardens - SOLD

Painting at Brookside Gardens
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping.

What a glorious day to be out painting. I sat in the shade across the path from my fellow painter, and watched 10 little goslings follow their parents around, into the water, then out and up the hill, then back, and repeat. So cute. The post above shows what she was painting; I took her spot after she left. Thanks, KB, for being my model.

Pears and Polka Dots - NA

Pears and Polka Dots
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
Not avaialable, revised.

Before I eat these pears, I figured I'd better paint them. It's been a rainy week here, lots of showers, seems like on a daily basis. Not a good week to get outdoors to paint.

Coral Iris - NA

Frills and Folds, Coral Iris
Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 12" x 12" x 1.5"
Revised 7/18/2011

This one will be continued around the sides, top and bottom, so needs no frame. Of course, this kind of canvas is more expensive to begin with, and costs a bit more, weight wise to ship. But there's no fuss when it arrives, it just pops onto the wall.

Soft Winter Colors - SOLD

Soft Winter Colors, Revised
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping.

This one sat for awhile, and then got sold, revised, not sold, and so I've been saving it to post again. Simple, serene and aren't the colors lovely? The colors are actually a bit richer than this photo shows.

Frilly Lavender Iris - SOLD

Frilly Lavender Iris
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping.

It's time for irises, and I've been spotting them all over, sometimes where I can stop and take photos, and sometimes just as a drive by. I'll be doing some new ones this week.

Cloud Study - SOLD

Cloud Study
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 16"

This one was just such fun to paint. It's always good to study clouds. Done by request.
