Reflected Yellow - SOLD

Reflected Yellow
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"

I liked the reference photo (from Google images) because of the dark sky and the single spot of bright yellow. I think it turned out fairly well.

Memories of Autumn
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"

What Greens May Come - SOLD

What Greens May Come
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 18" x 18"

Even though we haven't really had much deep winter weather here in the DC area, I am still eager for the greens of Spring. So a little deviation from the winter colors, and a dip into greens, treated as a sort of fantasy painting.

January Blues - SOLD

January Blues
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"

I'm pretty happy with this one, especially the spots in the back that show sunshine on snow shadows.
I like that sense of light.

January Stream - SOLD

January Stream
Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8"

If it has got to be winter, then these are my favorite winter colors; rust, deep blue, mauve and grey.
A cold stream flowing thru a frozen woods. Brrrr.

January Week One Paintings - SOLD

Simple Winter Colors
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD at $60 plus $12 shipping.

This one is an overpainting of the rather stiff girl from the other day (see below). I just can't bear to waste canvas, she had her chance. There s a lot of texture here, since it's painted roughly.

Winter Light
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 18"

I'm really happy with this one, it has a "FEEL" to it, which is what we are always striving for.
I want to tighten my scarf, it feels cold to me.

Ice Reflections - SOLD

Ice Reflections
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"

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.

Thanksgiving Walk
Oil on Linen Panel, 8" x 10"
NA Gifted

Got your pies baked, and all your groceries in the house? Got all your plans sorted out?
Hope you will all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
I am blessed, I will get to go and celebrate the day with my brother and his family tomorrow, always nice. And after dinner, we should all go for a walk here. Wouldn't that be sweet?

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.

Sunshine Ramble - SOLD

A little one this time, with lots of yellow and off yellow.

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?

Little Fall Scene - NA

Little Fall Scene, Revised from October 23, 2016
Oil on Stretched Canvas

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?
