Late Fall Colors
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 24" x 24"
Revised on 2/17/2012

I had one last canvas, painted with water lilies, that didn't work. So today I got brave and found a nice photo (from a free online image library) with colors that feel current to our season. Doesn't it feel "chilly?" Thanks for looking.

SOLD at $15.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

One of my students gave me a lovely flower arrangement today in class, left over from her son's recent wedding. I tried to paint one of the roses, a lovely palest pink color. Baby blush or some similar description. I painted, wiped, scraped, and repeated five times to get something even close. Finally I took my palette knife and turned the mess into a landscape.

SOLD at $20.00 plus $7.00 shipping.

Time for a landscape, after some still life work. This is the first time I've put telephone poles in from my photo reference, and I find I like them. Since this one is loose, it can be cropped down to a 14" x 14", or maybe even a 12" x 12."

SOLD at $30, shipping included

In the spirit of Thanksgiving leftovers (that yummy turkey sandwich), I am posting another revised older painting that didn't sell. I have brightened the blues, lowered the shoreline, and generally tweaked this palette knife piece. It's highly textured, just so you know. Some of the palette knife work does show here.

The Colors of Fall
Oil on board, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping

This one was done from imagination. I don't think the light would ever really be like this, but artistic license gives me permission to make things up. Nice, isn't it? I'm not quite ready to set aside my oranges and yellows, but soon.

From a photo. In this neck of the woods, the colors are almost gone. Most of the leaves are down now, and the temperature feels like winter. It has been a beautiful fall, though. Now to hunker down for the long winter.

The Sunday Drive

The Sunday Drive
Oil on Archival Canvas Paper, 14" x 14"
Available at $65 plus $7 shipping.

I'm probably dating myself, but do you remember "drives" as entertainment? As recreation? As what you did on a beautiful Sunday afternoon? (In our case, the destination was the "Skyline Drive.") This just feels like one of those afternoons.

November Glow

This is just an imaginary place, but I was playing with colors, and it has a sort of rainbow fall feeling to it. The sky has blue, pink, orange, yellow and white in it. Fun, yes?
