Blooming Apricot - SOLD

Blooming Apricot
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $25.00 plus $8 shipping.

The neighborhood is divided about whether this might be a peach or an apricot. The fruit is always hard, little fuzzy ovals, like walnuts. (The fruit doesn't mature, just gets walnut sized, and drops.) But when it blooms, it's a joy to stand under it and take pictures, especially against a bright blue sky.

Practicing "Messy" - SOLD

Practicing "Messy"
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16"
SOLD at $20 plus $8 shipping.

If you click to see this one larger, you'll see what I mean. I am practicing being messier, sloppier and more rambunctious in my painting. Not easy, when the natural inclination is to go carefully, and be controlled. The market seems to want either photo realism, or really loose and sketchy (messy.) So it takes some practice.

Blush Tulips - NA

Blush Tulips
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
NA, Revised and Sold

I didn't want white, but I didn't want pink or yellow either.
So here you go, we'll call it "blush."
