Quiet Lake Shore - SOLD

Quiet Lake Shore
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 20" x 20"

Last week, when I put up some of the larger pieces on ebay, someone bid on the 20" x 20" I called "Lake View" and was outbid. The collector asked to have a redo and this is what I got. He liked it. Thanks, Mr. B!

Lazy Landscape - SOLD

Lazy Landscape
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 9"
SOLD at $25.00 plus $7 shipping.

Detail below:

This is a limited palette landscape, and it's lazy because I painted it at my friend Pastor A's home, and didn't want to lug along a whole bunch of paint tubes, so just chose some blues and orange. It's fun to see what you can come up with using just a few colors:

Blues: Ultramarine, Cobalt, Cerulean
Cadmium Orange, Transparent Red Iron Oxide

The model was a broken tree out in his backyard, with a bending branch (the storm we had broke a lot of trees) still attached to it's trunk.

Orange Hibiscus in Oils - SOLD

Orange Hibiscus in Oils
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at $80 plus $12.00 shipping

This is a larger painting in oils. I wanted to see what differences I could make between oils and acrylics. Of course the oils are much easier for subtle color shifts and blending. I do like the drama of light flowers on dark backgrounds.

A couple of "tries" at Hibiscus for our floral lesson at Michael's on Wednesday. I still need to simplify for my students, to assure a success. Maybe an easier pattern for them.
