Path Thru the Pines 2 - SOLD

Path Thru the Pines 2
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"

A short "series" this time, with just two paintings. This one is done using the same reference as day before yesterday's posting. With a different format, rectangular instead of the square format, (which I love using.)

Puddle in the Road, Revised - SOLD

Puddle in the Road, Revised
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at best offer plus $10 shipping.

I actually repainted most of this one today. I liked it well enough, but there was something lacking.  I think it may have been detail. I used the palette knife for a lot of the foliage, especially where it overlapped, to give some fine leafy edges. I straightened the road, and made the puddle edges crisper. Repainted the sky, the puddle, get the idea.

Much better, I think.
Here is what it looked like before:

See what I mean?

Path Through the Pines - SOLD

Path Through the Pines
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $28 plus $7 shipping

This one was so hard, took me hours. I just forgot how to paint. Isn't that weird? But sometimes it happens. I have been busy with other things, and when I sat down to work, I just wasn't sure how to paint. Eventually it came back, after much hesitation and slow going.

Poppy a la Georgia 2 - SOLD

Poppy a la Georgia 2
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $25 plus $7 shipping

Even thought there is a terrible glare on the black center, if you tilt your screen, you can get an idea of how this actually looks.  (At least that works with my laptop.) I apologize for the glare.

I had so much red and orange paint left over from the other day, that I thought I'd better make another poppy painting. I'm happy with this one. A splash of red on a grey December day.
