Blue Delphinium



Blue Delphinium
5"x7" original oil on canvas board

Sold

More Blue! I had a light background first
and it just didn't work. So the artist in me
changed the whole feeling of the painting
by adding the drama of the darker background.

Blue & White Jar with Orchid

Blue & White Jar with Orchid
4"x6" original oil on canvas
gallery wrap, no staple showing
framing optional

Sold



A theme going on with all the blue
and white lately.
This porcelain jar
is after an English antique biscuit jar.

I did the china painting on the jar myself
with raspberries
and leaves.
The gold is 24K gold trim that puts off a

nice glow in the light. I tried to capture
the over glow
as the light hit the jar.

English Castle & Red Grapes

English Castle & Red Grapes
5"x7" original oil on canvas panel
standard size for easy framing


Sold 

Redware and red grapes make for beautiful
shadows and reflections on the white cloth.
The grapes in the creamer appear to be calling
out
to their fellow grapes that fell overboard.
Hope it brings a smile to your face!
