Phlox in Crystal



Phlox in Crystal
5"x7" original oil on linen
gallery wrap...framing optional



Sold

White is always a challenge.
A good look at the white reveals
more about the surrounding colors
than the white itself.

Similarly with glass and crystal, one paints all
the colors reflected in the glass and then the
highlights or sparkles.

Looking through the glass reveals a distorted
view of stems and a leaves.

Phlox, Lace and Pottery

Phlox, Lace and Pottery
6"x6" original oil painting on gallery wrap linen
framing optional


Sold

A borrowed bowl from my mother,
Phlox from my garden and a vintage lace
handkerchief make up this painting.
I tried to use economy in the strokes,
especially in the Phlox and the handkerchief.

I love this bowl and am trying to paint
several paintings before I give it back to
Mom. :-)
Here is another one that's sold.

Tucked In

Tucked In
6"x6" original oil on gallery wrap linen
framing optional



Sold



Nestled in a quilt and looking all tucked in.
I may need my eyes checked again after
this one. Just kidding, but it was hard to keep
track of all the design on the quilt.
It was fun making lemons look like they
were inside the blue bowl.

I like how it turned out.
Hope you do too.

Cobalt and Rose

Cobalt and Rose
5"x7" original oil painting on gallery wrap linen
framing optional

This is a re-post of this painting.
I am re-posting it because I moved it to the online auction mode.
I figured it would go unnoticed otherwise.
Sold
I guess I could say blue is my favorite color,
although I have many "favorite colors".
I seem to be drawn to cobalt dishes and bottles.
Vintage items are especially nice.

Gentle Light



Gentle Light 
16"x20" Original oil painting on canvas

Thought I would post a larger painting
for a change. This is an actual place near
our home. It's a lagoon with a bridge fashioned
after Monet's garden. A very beautiful and
peaceful place. Hope you enjoy!
