SOLD at $45.00 plus $7.00 shipping.

Since I have a few former online students who are interested in working in acrylics, I am starting to write my little mini-lesson on some basics that I've learned. Hence, playing with my acrylics.

Edge of the Woods

Edge of the Woods
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10"
Available at $35.00, (includes $7.00 shipping in the US)

Sometimes it is freeing to take a "dead" painting (one that nobody wanted) and just go for it.
This one started life as a big yellow flower. I turned it upside down, and reserved a few bits of the yellow petals as underpainting. Yee haw.

Watermelon Paintings - SOLD

Watermelon and Plums
Acrylics on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
SOLD at $20 plus $7 shipping.

Wedge or Slice?
Acrylics on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $15 plus $5 shipping.

A couple of sample paintings for our still life class today at Michaels. One of the students suggested watermelon last week, a wonderful idea. Thanks, Miss S.

Pansy Quartet - SOLD

This is a set of four Gallery Wrapped canvases painted all the way around, so no frames are needed.
It was a commission from over a year ago, so I think it's safe to assume that the collector may not want the set anymore. I've shown one possible configuration.

Each canvas is 10" x 10" x 1.5"
SOLD at $200, shipping is $15.

That sounds like a lot, but there was easily $50 worth of work in each one.
Thanks for looking.

Forest - NA

Revised on 7/29/2012

Okay, this is better, but I've now lost the sky completely. I'll rework that tomorrow, and post again.
This is revised from the other day, when I decided that my forest was wayyyyy too dark. I added more light colors today. Now I see I've got a severe "V" shape, and no sky. Hmmm. Sometimes it takes awhile to get there.

Mind Changes and Leftovers - SOLD

Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
SOLD at $15 plus $7 shipping

Single Hibiscus Bloom
Acrylics on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"

Bowl of Cherries
Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $15 plus $7 shipping.

A few leftovers today. A couple of these were "mind changes," folks had wanted them, and then later decided to pass, (which is perfectly okay.) The hibiscus was a sample painting from class last week.
