Dark Iris

Dark Iris
Oil on Hardboard, 6" x 8"
Available at $20 plus $10 shipping.



I mostly missed the irises this year, because of the rain. When I went to shoot some photos at my scouted locations, the blooms were all water logged and dropped. Some years are like that.

Conch Shell Sketch - SOLD

Conch Shell Sketch
Pen, Ink and Watercolor on Arches Paper, 6" x 6"
SOLD at $10 plus $10 shipping.



You'll be seeing this guy and some of his buddies again later this summer. My new friends L. and D. brought me a whole basket full of lovely beach treasures: driftwood, crab shells, conch shells and lovely little clam shells. So pretty. (Plus some bonus vases.) Tougher to draw than I imagined. But with beautiful greys, warm browns and golden tones, so appealing to spend a little time studying.

A sweet little rhododendron flower, up close.
Or part of one anyway.
Still pretty Impressionistic.

Rhododendron

Rhododendron
Oil on Hardboard, 14" x 11"
Available at $35 plus $12 shipping



We have a rhododendron (I had to look that up, I always thought it ended in an "M") bush in the back yard, evidence that at one time, probably when this building was a single family home, that someone loved and cared for the yard. It's lovely, so I clipped a few blooms to paint this morning. The painting turned out simple and dramatic.

Serene Panorama - SOLD

Serene Panorama
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 20"
SOLD at $25 plus $10 shipping.



Don't you like this one? So peaceful, right?
There are some lumps and bumps here, since I used an old canvas, a piece that didn't work out.
Otherwise it would be more expensive.

Our Internet was down today ( I heard it was more than citywide) and boy, did I feel crippled without my connections. Amazing how dependent we are now on our technology habits.

Hydrangea Bush - SOLD

Hydrangea Bush
Oil on Hard Board, 16" x 16"
SOLD



This one was really fun to paint. So swishy and loose. Just plain fun.
I've gone high on the shipping, because of the size and the weight.

Pears and Stripes - SOLD

Pears and Stripes
Oil on Hardboard, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $30 plus $10 shipping.



Since I had the striped cloth out from yesterday, and the pears at the Natural Food Store were pretty this week, here you go. A little bit different with the orientation, but that's fun too sometimes.

Lemons on Red Stripes - SOLD

Lemons on Red Stripes
Oil on Hardboard, 6" x 8"

This was fresh and fun to paint after all the tulips.
Maybe a landscape again next.

Soft Pink Tulips - SOLD

Soft Pink Tulips
Oil on Hard Board, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $25 plus $10 shipping.



One last painting of tulips before I set that idea aside for awhile. I liked the idea of a blush color or very soft pink. Then the blue background just evolved. It looks good, I think.

Dappled Spring

Dappled Spring
Oil on Hard Board, 11" x 14"
Available at $40 plus $10 shipping.



I was so attracted to the reference photo for this one, with the high contrast and all the lovely new greens in it. One of my favorite parts of Spring. New Spring greens!

Deep Pink on Pink - NA

Deep Pink on Pink
Oil on Hard Board, 8" x 8"
Not available, Gifted..


This is a happy one, even though the tulip color got away from me a little.
OK. It's an oddball color, but it's still a happy painting. The background is a soft pink.

Red Tulips - SOLD

Red Tulips
Oil on Hardboard, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $25 plus $10 shipping.



Downtown at one of the banks, I love the red tulips set against dark mulch in the landscaping right now, I have to stop and gaze every time I go past. Soooo pretty!

Path with Blooming Tree - SOLD

Path with Blooming Tree
Oil on Hardboard, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $25 plus $10 shipping.



I liked the bones of this one, and since it's grey and overcast today, I am more settled to be indoors working. So I took some time to finesse this little guy. I went at it with a palette knife. MUCH better!

Blooming Tree Sketch - NA

Blooming Tree Sketch
Oil on Hard Board, 8" x 8"
Not Available, Revised on 4.24.18

It's Earth Day, and it's just gorgeous outside. I really want to go out and dig in the dirt!
So instead of a "real" painting, you get a quick sketch today. (So I can go play!) The reference photo is lovely, and deserves a more attention, so I should probably do this one justice sometime.

Last of the Magnolias - SOLD

Last of the Magnolias
Oil on Hardboard, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $30 plus $10 shipping.



The magnolias here in Chestertown are mostly old, majestic and large. They have been spectacular this Spring, they must like cooler Spring weather (since it has been so far.) They are all but done now, the hefty looking petals all over the ground. I really have enjoyed them.

The Greens of Spring - SOLD

The Greens of Spring
Oil on Wood Panel, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $30 plus $10 shipping.



This one was just delicious to paint, all these wonderful greens. Like Spring, where it's so lovely to watch everything greening up, and the sweet new bright greens you see at this time of year. I'm sure you'll see this one again, it was just plain fun to paint.

Lemons on Blue Plate

Lemons on Blue Plate
Oils on Cradled Gessobord, 8" x 8" x 1"
Available at $25 plus $10 shipping.



One inch cradle to the wall.

This one was just a BEAR to paint. Sadly, I realized about half way thru that I should have reserved this Cradle Board for a landscape, since earlier I had coated it with orange tinted gesso and it was still really smooth. Like painting on glass, with the added problem of the orange underneath. Yikes! My paint kept slipping and sliding around, so I had to go fairly thick, which is not how I like to do still life. Oh, well, it's done now. Painted all around the edges, so no frame is needed.
