Yellow Hydrangeas
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping.

One of my collectors from Barre asked me for some yellow hydrangeas, tipped with blue, and I enjoyed painting heres so much, that I thought I'd do one for the blog. Kind of fun to use a color other than blues, magentas and lavender.

Sunny Faces- SOLD

Sunny Faces
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping.

Another painting using my pretty sunflowers. They are lasting pretty well. This painting will also become the subject of a lesson, which I'll be offering later today at $15.00. It will be a step-by-step without a pattern to follow, so that you can set up your own sunflowers in a jar and use the lesson to know how to proceed with your own painting.

August Sunflowers - SOLD

August Sunflowers
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping.

Right now the sunflowers at the grocery store are pretty cheap, I was able to pick up a 5 bunch for only $6.99. I think that makes it worthwhile to paint a bunch.

Brookside Pond Revised - SOLD

Brookside Pond, Revised
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 18" x 24"
SOLD at $85.00 plus $15.00 shipping.

I took the path out, since I thought it was distracting, and extended the water. I like it better now. I also dropped the price quite a bit.
