Summer Marsh - SOLD

Summer Marsh
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10"

We have a perfect summer day here in Maryland.
This one feels like the day, crisp, sunlit, not too hot.
It's revised from a sky demo I did in class.

Trail through the Wheat Fields - SOLD

Trail through the Wheat Fields
Acrylics on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"

I liked the reference photo for this one so much that I decided to use it for my meeting today with my private student. I've done it in oils before, but the acrylics turned out okay too.

Trail Away - SOLD

Trail Away
Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"

Just as I was sitting down to paint this afternoon, a thunderstorm blew through, and we lost our power. I decided to tilt my easel to the dim light outdoors and kept painting. Not too bad for not having lights, though the colors are a bit off, predictably.

Impressionistic Flowers Two - SOLD

Impressionistic Flowers Two
Acrylics on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"

As often happens, when someone sees a painting, but it's sold, and I do a second one, it just doesn't "sing" to them the way the first one did. I did this one today for a collector who liked yesterday's sketchy floral, but this one didn't sing to her. Maybe someone else will like it.

Two Summer Landscapes - SOLD

Summer Hillside
Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"

Mountain Grasses
Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"

I am pretty happy doing these summery landscapes right now. So you'll probably see a few more. Like the clouds and sky series, it feels good to concentrate on one genre for a bit.

Path on the Hill- SOLD

Path on the Hill
Oil on Canvas Pane, 11" x 14"

I am so thinking summer time. Doesn't this feel like June or July?

Impressionistic Flowers - SOLD

Impressionistic Flowers
Acrylics on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"

Someone from class requested "Impressionistic Flowers" last week, so this is what I came up with. The doing of it, with big brushes and swishes of paint, is not hard, but I'm expecting the "teaching" of it to be a little more tricky.

Field Sheds - SOLD

Field Sheds
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"

Blogger and I are finally getting along again, thanks to my friend, PJ, a computer guru.
(Don't we need these talented folks!)
Nice to be able to post again.
Thanks, PJ!
