Flowering Tree - SOLD

Flowering Tree
Oil on Hardboard, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.

I've got to do at least one blooming tree portrait for Spring.  
This one looks a little more lavender than the painting actually is. I mean, it is pink/magenta, but not this purple. There may be more, they really are fun to paint.

Neighborhood Daffodils - SOLD

Neighborhood Daffodils
Oil on Hardboard, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $45 plus $10 shipping.

This one was crazy to paint, all those little leaves.  
I did it from some photos of one of the neighborhood front gardens in our neighborhood. 
Lots of daffodils!

Oil on Hardboard, 12" x 16"
SOLD at $35 plus $10 shipping

In this case, the painting felt closed in somehow, so I tried "opening" it up, and adding more space. The path also stopped fairly abruptly, with little visual explanation. Below is how it looked before:

Cherry Blossoms Take Two - SOLD

Cherry Blossoms, Take Two
Oil on Hardboard, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $25 plus $10 shipping.

So a little experiment: I put yesterday's painting away, and didn't refer to it at all, while working on a second painting from the same reference. Interesting the differences.
