Still Life with Stripes 2

11 x 14 Oil on canvas   Sold
email: mcary1@maine.rr.com
This is an oil from the past that was hanging around my studio unloved. I kept eyeing it with unhappiness, but with some hope attached. So, I tackled it, just a little, lightened it up and now I have a bit of a crush on it. Not quite love, but better........

Deconstructed Shadows

18 x 18 Oil on cradled canvas
email: mcary1@maine.rr.com
FINI! I think.... I am pretty sure I could keep finding things to correct, but for now I am done. I will have to reshoot this in different light, the colors are not that accurate. This is showing way too blue, the shadows are really a grayer color, I will repost when I get it right.

Iris Sketch

10 x 10 Oil on canvas
email: mcary1@maine.rr.com
I found this in a reject pile from quite a while ago. I forgot about it, but remember not being happy with it. Well, I decided after seeing this again that it is not too bad for a quick sketch. Since I have nothing new to post and I'm going out of town for a week, here is a filler of sorts. Interesting to look at something anew, it's a little easier not being so hard on oneself.
