Ice Reflections

Ice Reflections
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
Available at $125, includes shipping in the continental US

I wanted to try a winter landscape, found a somewhat complex photo that I liked because of the backlit sunshine, and this is what came out. I'll let you be the judges.

Late November - SOLD

Late November
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"

A hazy November day, overcast afternoon.
A darker fall piece than my usual, but I think that the color harmony works well here.
Love those mauve grays.

November Afternoon - SOLD

November Afternoon
Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.

I've been working on a couple of commissions, which have been keeping me busy. But today: clear, cold, brisk sunshine, made me want a landscape again. Outside is winterish but sparkly. Inside is nice and warm to paint and look out the window.

Autumn Stream - SOLD

Autumn Stream
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 20" x 20"

This is a larger piece, with a concentration of oranges and greens.
I did the water in a slightly different way this time, with ripples instead of reflections.
I like the color harmony here.

Woodland Stream, Fall - SOLD

Woodland Stream, Fall
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"

I wanted to try something darker yesterday, but only got about half way done, finished this up after church this afternoon. I used the same reference as in Fall Colors, Quietly from November 2nd, but while this one may be darker than the usual fall piece, it's not exactly "quiet", is it?

Fall Colors Quietly - SOLD

Fall Colors Quietly
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.

I wanted Fall, but I wanted something a little less colorful, so I found a good reference photo, and here's what came out. More of the red browns, darker water and more purples give this one a more calm look and feel (as compared to the color blasts that I've been loving and painting.)

Village Lane Watercolor - SOLD

Village Lane Watercolor
Watercolor on Arches Paper, 13" x 16"
SOLD at $15 plus $10 shipping.

I got in my email, a  post from Bob Davies at Art Tutor, and liked the step-by-step so much, I decided to give it a whirl. I think it must be an English village scene; the reference photo was most appealing. Of course I played, so this one is a bit overworked, with gouache and pastel over the watercolor, but hey, I was playing. And yes, I want to try it again.

Here's the link if you'd like to see how different my results are from Bob's.

Autumn Reds - SOLD

Autumn Reds
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at $125.00, includes shipping (Continental US only)

I found a good fall photo reference, which was all reds and greens. Lovely.
This landscape painting isn't quite as subtle as my beautiful reference, but I'm very happy with it.
More often I go for the bright yellows, but this is nice, yes?

Four Painting Commission

Here's what I've been doing lately.
(Published with permission from the buyer.)

These have been done as a wedding gift for a bride of Japanese descent marrying a groom from Georgia, hence the Cherry Blossoms, the Cherokee Roses (state flower of Georgia), the Red-Crowned Cranes and the Georgia Peaches. Each is 10" x 10" x 1.5", on gallery wrapped canvas.

 All are painted top, sides and bottom, but I'll just show the one side, here.

Misty Morning - SOLD

Misty Morning
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $40 plus $10 shipping.

We had some great fog the other morning, so I found a photo to go along with the feeling. Nice, hanging mistiness over the water, and in the low lying areas.

The Last Peaches

The Last Peaches
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10"
Available at $40 plus $10 shipping.

I have a commission for a painting of peaches, so scouted around...aha, Walmart still has peaches, so bought some. Very pretty. Knowing in advance that they would be inedible, since they were hard as hockey pucks. Isn't it sad when you buy fruit already knowing you won't be able to eat it? But at least I have some models for my commission piece.

Cherry Blossom Oil Sketch - SOLD

Cherry Blossom Sketch
Oil on Linen Panel, 8" x 8"

My large easel is out for repair right now. Over the years, my oils and solvents had corroded the little shelves where the paintings were propped, so a handyman at church is building me some new canvas perches. All that by way of telling yu that the little blue shadow on the left is from my plein air easel, which has little metal prongs to hold canvas.

I have a commission for cherry blossoms, and did something I'm not sure about, so I thought I'd play on a used canvas, nonthreatening. The demise of the little watermelon piece. Sweet, isn't it?

Summer Sketch - SOLD

Summer Sketch
Oil on Linen Panel, 9" x 12"

A quick oil sketch, paying very little attention to exactness.
Just a sketch in oils.

Touch of Red - SOLD

Touch of Red
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"

Here and there are small touches of color; the sycamores on the way to the library are already ochre.
So, here's a little fall preview.

September Air - SOLD

September Air
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"

I used the same reference as yesterday, but I had a lot more room to play.
