Southwest Harbor 3

10 x 10 Oil on canvas board   SOLD
This is a painting I did back in August, 2010 and painted over and retouched. I never really liked it, but I have to have a couple 10 x 10s for a show. I don't have a lot of paintings that size, so, I decided to rework this. I like it much better now. Take a look and compare if you have the time, and give me your critique!

Lily Pads

7 x 7 1/2 Pastel on paper
matted and framed 12 x12
Or ponds are filled with these plants this time of year. The flowers are so beautiful and delicate floating on the surface. They remind me of story book plants.

Blue Iris

9 1/2 x 9 1/2 Pastel on sanded paper matted and framed 14 x 14
I have been in a pastel mood, a little easier to set up than oils during busy times. Perfect for all the flowers in bloom now!

Red, White and Blue

6 x 6 Oil on canvas board
Not quite the 4th yet, and this wasn't intentional. When I looked at the finished piece, the name stuck out, being that time of year!

Spring Poppies

6 x 6 Oil on canvas board   SOLD
This is going to be a busy summer. All kinds of events along with my son's wedding in September. Why does everything seem condensed, I think we need longer summers to fit so many special things in. Especially here in the northeast, where we try to fit too much in, in a short season. I can sense that painting is going to take a hit! I will have to record inspirations and hope to get to the easel!

Key West Rooster 2

6 x 8 Oil on canvas board
I love these guys struttin their stuff and squawking at everyone that gets in their way. They make me smile when I see them in Key West. Noisy, but very entertaining. If you hurt one of these fellas, you get a fine!! So, beware if you visit, and make sure you go to the wildlife refuge, they have tons of birds and baby chicks, they give them to farms away from the town. A great volunteer service to support!
