Turn in the Road, Barre - NA

Turn in the Road, Barre
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
Not available, revised on 11/6/2011
I love how the splotches of sunshine work in this one.
The sense of dappled sun came out well, I think. I'm still happily using my reference photos from Massachusetts' falls.

Fall in Yellow Purple Turquoise - SOLD

Fall in Yellow Purple Turquoise
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16"
SOLD at $35.00 plus $7.00 shipping

You wouldn't think these colors would work so well together, but a limited palette is a fine thing, and results in color harmony. After teaching class this morning, I was itchy to paint, but something easy. This one was just plain fun.

Apple Plate

Apple Plate
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8"
Available at $35 plus $7 shipping in the US

My friend B is visiting from Massachusetts, and we've been able to get together a couple of times (YAY!) while she is here in Maryland helping her daughter. Since it's my birthday month, we "did" Tuesday Morning, and she bought me some new paring knives. I wanted to try one in a painting. Something a little different for me. Thanks for looking.

Peony Watercolor Cropped - SOLD

Crop One, 18" x 20"

Crop Two, 18" x 20"

The original watercolor is full sheet size, a 20" x 28" image on 22" x 30" paper.

I thought there might be too much dark in the watercolor, so I have tried a couple of ways to crop it. I like the first one the best, but you and your framer can try different ways to crop it. I will send the whole painting.

And here's the original:

Fall Pond - SOLD

Fall Pond
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 18" x 24"
SOLD at $135.00, shipping included
Detail Below

I've included the detail, so that the range of colors will show.

This one is pretty big, and it's satisfying my reaction to the colors right now. Have you noticed how very blue the sky looks with all the yellows and golds against it? Sitting on my deck, looking at "my" woods, I keep being amazed at how deep a cobalt blue the sky is on sunny fall days.

Pear on Teal - SOLD

Pear on Teal
Oil on Gesso Board, 6" x 6"
SOLD at $20 plus $5 shipping.

Since the first pear was well liked, I did this one with a different background. Now I really need to eat this guy up. The pear is so delicate, that sitting in the spotlight is baking it.

Single Pear - SOLD

Single Pear
Oil on Gesso Board, 6" x 6"
SOLD at $20.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

And now it's time to eat this beauty.

Autumn Landscape 2 - SOLD

Autumn Landscape 2
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16"
SOLD at $45.00 plus $7.00 shipping.
Detail views below.

This is the same landscape as the demo I did in class on Thursday last. One of my collectors asked for it, but since it was already sold, I enjoyed doing another one, more carefully. When you demo, you are also trying to be quick so your students have time to paint, and then talking at the same time. It's a skill I'm trying to practice.
