This was one of those paintings that practically paint themselves. The pink tummies of the cows next to the green, with the cool light- I am really fond of this painting.
The Cow Creamer 7.5x10" $360
This graceful little cow creamer caught my eye and seemed like a nice still life version of painting cows. It's framed in a dark wood frame with gold laurel embossed lip- very pretty.
Beside The Lake 8x8" $350
The color of the water is one of my favorite parts of this painting...but I also like the subject matter of my adorable little nephew with his shiny little foot, and the unusual square format. This painting looks fabulous in it's rustic dark wood frame with gold lip. I will be a little sorry to have it leave my hearth.
Tidy Little Ship 6x8" $160
Bright, sunny childhood with the ducks and toy boat- I love the mood in this tiny painting.
Welcoming Spring 22x40" $1950
Sometimes a dream comes and lingers and begs to be acted on in spite of all it's encumbering inconveniences. This was one of those satisfying times when the real painting came out very like the picture in my mind. The mustard and forsythia were found, my cousin's little girl made a very sweet Pan-like child, and everything came together. I love the way this piece looks with a bouquet of daffodils before it- the flowers seem to spill into life out of the painting.
Baking Day 18x22- Sold!
The bright, cheerful colors were what I was going for in this piece. The yellow bowl was found as I went through one of my cupboards- it belonged to Cameron's grandmother, as did the dishtowel. The nectarines, the fun little bowls, and my favorite part- the loaf of bread- the whole painting really began to sing when I decided to change the background to green.
Sparkling Day 9x7.5" $350
The sparkle in this piece reminds me of the joy of running in and along the edge of the surf on a spectacular day at the Pacific Ocean. The colors remind me of Sorolla- if I do say so myself :)
Back Pasture 11.25x8.5 $400
Evenings are incredibly beautiful at Cameron's parent's farm. The shadows stretching across the farmland as the light richens before it fades- just lovely.
By the River 12x7.5" $380
Th McKenzie is a beautiful river. Here it is swollen in the spring with my beautiful model before it. The edges, cool light and impasto passages in the paint make this an interesting painting to me.
Red Bucket 7.5x7.5" $250
Color and energy in a tiny painting!
Spring Party 9x14"$400
A carefree Spring party begun in advance by the flowers on the table. I am very fond of white tulips. They even looked good on my counter after they had finished living. In my opinion. Tulips begin to do such interesting things when they are put in a vase.
The Architect 9x14" $400
This cheery, breezy painting got it's inspiration from a perfect day on the beach with a beautiful girl who agreed to model.
Roses and Violets and Bok Choy 9x14" $400
Roses and baby BokChoy- two of my favorite things to paint. I don't know why BokChoy is so fun, but it is an picturesque little vegetable! Add romance to your kitchen or an earthy element to your bedroom with this painting. This dimension- 9x14"- is one I've really been enjoying, and I love the way it looks in it's dark wood frame with gold embossed lip.
Hymn of the Bullfrogs 16x8.25 $450
I have enjoyed this painting! A beautiful piece to live with. I wrote about this painting last year... you can read my post about it by scrolling down my blog.
"All This Joy" 29.5x39.5" $2500
In my new house we have a picture window with a view of the neighbor's flower bed. As I sat there looking out at the rain over breakfast or lunch, the crocuses across the street delighted me. I began to imagine the scene as a painting...and pretty soon I had to do it.
Here is a preview of my paintings for the show "Daily Graces" at Art On The Boulevard. The show begins April 7th with an Opening Reception from 5-9pm. I hope you enjoy!
