Not a Rose - SOLD

Not a Rose
Oil on Primed, Loose Canvas, 6" x 6"
SOLD at $15.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

One of my students gave me a lovely flower arrangement today in class, left over from her son's recent wedding. I tried to paint one of the roses, a lovely palest pink color. Baby blush or some similar description. I painted, wiped, scraped, and repeated five times to get something even close. Finally I took my palette knife and turned the mess into a landscape.

Quick Couple (of Pears)
Oil on Primed, Loose Canvas, 6" x 6"

A couple of pears, small size.

Irises Two - SOLD

Irises Two
Oil on Primed, Loose Canvas, 11" x 15"
SOLD at $30.00 plus $7.00 shipping.

This is not the same painting as the other day. Since I was writing a lesson on painting these guys, I painted two, so I could photograph the steps. I'm willing to let this one go at $30.00 plus shipping.

Country Mood - SOLD

Country Mood
Oil on Primed Loose Canvas, 16" x 16"
SOLD at $20.00 plus $7.00 shipping.

Time for a landscape, after some still life work. This is the first time I've put telephone poles in from my photo reference, and I find I like them. Since this one is loose, it can be cropped down to a 14" x 14", or maybe even a 12" x 12."

Pears on Pear Dishtowel - SOLD

Pears on Pear Dishtowel
Oil on Primed Loose Canvas, 10" x 12"
SOLD at $25.00 plus $7.00 shipping.

Just a fun idea, putting pears on pears (which is why I picked up the dishtowel in the first place.)
