This is the revised version of the now-unavailable Peonies from the other day. Good to have a canvas that you can paint over.

Pansy Pot - SOLD

Pansy Pot
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10"

Thanks for looking!

Shadowed Creek - SOLD

Shadowed Creek
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at $125 $90, shipping included

As you can see below, this particular canvas is slightly flawed, in the top right corner, so I have reduced the price. I think that if you can find a frame that has a deep front overlap, you'll be okay with this. No, I didn't drop it, it came like this from the store.

Thanks for looking!

Winter Mountain - SOLD

Winter Mountain
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at $125, includes shipping.

Revised from Yesterday's Painting

I did some revisions on this one from yesterday; changed the shape of the mountain, enlarged the trees on the left. changed the line of light trees in the back, this and that. I think it looks more balanced now.

December Colors - SOLD

December Colors
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 16"
SOLD at $100, shipping included.

Isn't this one nice? I guess I am partial to the subtle loveliness of the winter colors, though don't you just love the fall as well? Since it's dark now, the photo isn't quite correct (room lights) but this one has a really pretty blue in it. I'll post a daylight photo tomorrow.

Thanks for looking.

Abstracted Peonies - NA

Abstracted  Peonies
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
Not Avaiable.

I just completed a large commission painting, (30" x 24") with this subject. Had some paint colors mixed, so decided to do a smaller painting as well. Fun to be a little splashy.

Reflections - SOLD

Mountain Road, Fall - SOLD

Mountain Road, Fall
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 18"
SOLD

This one was done on commission, with a furnished photo.
It was both a challenge and a real pleasure to paint.
And, since my collector is happy with the painting, I figured I'd post it. I loved the fog in the photo, and the glow in the mountains.

Apples Posed on Colored Paper - SOLD

Apples Posed on Colored Paper
Oil on stretched canvas, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $25 plus $10 shipping

The top version is the revised version. I took out the corner apple, and it seems more balanced now.

This one is done with practically no blending at all. What do you think, too messy, too rough?
Or okay without all the polish?

Fall on Swift River
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at $125 plus $15 shipping

This larger painting done from a photo sent from Massachusetts, where the fall colors always seem more intense. To me, anyway. Maybe its all the maples? (Thanks for the card, B.)

Gearing Up - SOLD

Reflections
Gouache on Paper, 13" x 15"
SOLD at $30 plus $10 shipping.

I'm not sure why it's so hard to get started again, but it is. I do need to get various supplies, but in the course of "settling," I found this gouache painting that I thought had sold, but hadn't.

Below is a small video clip showing the view from our sixth floor apartment balcony; in a high rise apartment building where I am renting a room from a dear gentleman from church. We've got a wonderful view, there could be some sky studies in my future.

The State of My Studio

The State of My Studio

You never really can predict what might happen next. Yesterday, without advance notice, another couple moved into the trailer here. (The young niece of the man I was housekeeping for, and her boyfriend.) It was arranged about a month ago without my knowledge. I was told on Tuesday evening this past week that I had to be out in 8 days, which was later amended to 30 days, which has now been amended to whatever time I need or even "stay here and be the cook/maid". My studio was needed for their bedroom, so everything was shoved into a corner of  an adjacent room to make space. This is what the corner looks like, with the table on it's side. Oh, and it was nothing I did or didn't do, the niece needed housing, so here we are.

So, I am in transition again, after only 6 months. I am trying to have faith and figure out what's next. Meanwhile, trying to pack and maintain. Please pray for me, to discern what is God's will here, and to keep calm, and not panic. You can't get anything done in a frazzle!

I know that many of you helped me out a lot six months ago, but I am asking again, for a couple of dollars here or there to maintain myself while I can't paint, and must pack and make decisions instead.
Thanks in advance, all!

Addendum: Thank you ever so much, to the four folks who sent funds to keep me going. So very much appreciated! (You know who you are, so I won't mention names.) I am now settled temporarily into the parsonage of the church I have been attending for the last 6 months. The pastor and his wife kindly took me in, to avoid homelessness. I now have about three months to figure out what's next, while my dear cousin stores all my things in his garage, thanks so much, H. On we go!

For me, the Gouache seems to work best in small dabs, where lots of blending isn't needed.
The "leafy" landscapes seem most successful.
I used the same reference for the July 4th scene, and I like both results.

Since a collector wrote me and said that she was going to buy yesterday's, but it had already sold, I was encouraged to do a second version of the same one. They always turn out differently.

As was the case with the first version, this one can be cropped to any smaller size you need.

It felt good to paint again today, after a pretty big clean-up post Missy Kayla's visit (my 7 year old granddaughter). We had a great time, she really enjoyed VBS (Vacation Bible School) and even though all the grown ups were exhausted afterwards, I'd do it again next year in a heartbeat.

Isn't this one nice? I took my time, spent two days on it, it "feels" summer-ish to me.

Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
SOLD at $10 plus $10 shipping.

My painting time will be limited this week, since I have my granddaughter visiting, and attending VBS with me at church next week. (Vacation Bible School). I arranged to be teacher's helper in her grade group, so it should be fun. The rest of the time we'll spend playing with blocks, coloring, reading, swimming, her tablet and little games (at which she' s a whiz), and goofing around with the piano here. So far we've picked out "Hot Cross Buns" and "Twinkle, Twinkle" , so much fun. (Well, with help from the online free piano lessons.)

Here's Miss Kayla:
reading "Where's Waldo."

This painting she started for me this morning by painting the sky, a deep, deep blue.
It reminded me of beach, so I took my palette knife and went at it.

This is the second painting I did the other day, and since it was tucked into the blog, it wasn't really seen, and did not sell. I have revised it a little this morning, changed some of the shapes, and refined it in some places.
