Morning Light on Hamilton
9" x 12"  oil on canvas
 $75


The Virtual Paintout is an art challenge where one uses Google Street View at a specific location to find a scene to paint or draw. We have gone to the Philadelphia area this month.  I wandered around the streets looking for something to paint. I found this scene in Darby, near the city limits. The sun was just coming up, and one side of the street was bright, while the other side was still in near darkness. The water tower hovering above added to the charm. Here's the link - you can see how I painted it!

This piece is painted on all sides of the canvas, so it could be framed, or you could hang it up, just as it is.

Up Close and Personal
9” x 12”  acrylic on box-canvas

Mini-carnations often grace my kitchen table, and often I have wondered how hard it would be to paint them. Turns out it’s pretty hard to get them just right. It has turned from a what I thought would be a quick’n'easy floral painting, to a very meticulous study, to a flower portrait. I may never need to get so involved again - it got very close and personal!

This is a wrap-around or box-canvas, and it is painted on all sides. It is 1.5” deep, and hangs flush against the wall. You could frame it further if you wanted, but it doesn’t need it.

Painted Roses
8" x 10"  oil on canvas

This is not a new painting, the one on the easel has turned out to be way more involved and is taking forever, so I am bringing this little piece out. You can bid on this at the Daily Paintworks, or visit my Gallery page there to see more of my work!

This piece is painted on all sides of the canvas, and doesn't need to be framed, but of course you could!  Thanks for looking!
