Quick Sale - SOLD

I've redone the Blue Hydrangeas (called At the Florist before) and dropped the price.

Blue Hydrangeas
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"

Overcast Day
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16"

This one is a beauty, but the photo showing it before was very dark.
I didn't change the painting, just took another photos and dropped the price.

Glass Bottle

Glass Bottle
Oil on Canvas Panel, 6" x 8"
Available at $10 plus $10 shipping.

I was looking around for something small to put on one of the 6" x 8" panels, thinking I would then have time to spend at the "Paint-the-Town" plein air festival going on this weekend, poke around downtown. Hmmmm, maybe not my best choice. It turned out to be a lot harder than I thought. But well, it kind of looks like glass.

Simple Landscape - SOLD

Simple Landscape
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16"

I get emails whenever Johannes Vloothuis has a free Livestream demo going on. So I tuned in and watched him demonstrate and talk about scumbling and dry brush work, very interesting. I liked the trees he did, so tried some on my own, as a paint along.

If you want to see the Livestream demo and talk, it's HERE and it's free.

Spring Overcast - SOLD

Spring Overcast
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16"

I've been thinking about what it is that I myself like in a painting, and beyond admiring excellent craftsmanship, I think I like "moods" or something with drama, a play of light. So I tried here to do something with a little more drama than usual. I think it turned out well, for an imaginary landscape. All done with a palette knife, so lots of texture. (You can click on it to see it larger; some texture showing.)

Two Onions - SOLD

Two Onions
Oil on Canvas Panel, 6" x 8"

It's raining here today, chilly and windy, so I'm inside painting for the duration.
I will do either another hydrangea, maybe just blue, or a palette knife landscape, one or the other.
But meanwhile....onions.
