Little Blue Iris - SOLD

Little Blue Iris
Oil on Canvas Panel, 6" x 8"
SOLD at $15.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

This one was a reject for a small floral grouping for one of my collectors. He chose a small red iris instead, so this one is up for grabs, and I dropped the price.

Overhanging Tree - SOLD

Overhanging Tree
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at $130.00, includes shipping.

My fellow painter, Dee Sanchez showed a lovely photo on her blog the other day, and gave me permission to paint from it. I liked all the blues in the photo, and the sense of sunshine and shade ( yeah, I know, I do a lot of those.) Now that I've done it once, I know for next go-round, what I'd like to change, refine, edit.... but I'm pretty happy with this one. Lots of palette knife work in here.

Pink Peonies in a Jar - SOLD

Pink Peonies in a Jar
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping.

I tried some different pink colors with this one, and let a little of the jar show in the painting.  My bunch seems to be lasting pretty well, but I feel like somethig different for tomorrow, maybe back to landscape again. I've taken a lot of photos for the winter watercolors.

Pink Peonies: Take Two

Pink Peonies: Take Two
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10"
Available at $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

I added some thoughts of lavender, mauve into the shadows, and got a little closer on the light pink peony. The deeper pinks still aren't quite there yet, but it's getting closer to what I want to do.

Peonies: Take One - SOLD

Peonies: Take One
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $30.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

I was perturbed with myself for missing both peonies and lilacs this spring, but voila! there were some peonies in the floral case today at the Giant. I scooped them up, took 'em home, and stuck 'em in a jar. I'm not sure how to paint them, so I'll have to try several approaches. Here's the first attempt. We'll see how I do.

Neighborhood Lake
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at $80.00 plus $15.00 shipping.

Isn't this one summery? Done from my photos of Lake Artemesia in College Park, a lovely man made neighborhood lake, wonderful for walks and bike riding.

Portrait Play

Portrait Play
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10"
Available at $30.00 plus $7.00 shipping.

In my critique group, we've been talking a little about a simplified palette, and some of my bloggers there are interested in portraits, so I did this one as an example of a face done with our simple palette. She looks like she's about to laugh, but she's nobody I know.
