Mc Neil's Produce
9" x 12"  Acrylic on canvas
starting bid:  $75

The Virtual Paintout is an art challenge using Google Street View to paint or draw at a chosen location (somewhere around the globe). This month we are in Nashville, Tennessee. Using the little peg-man, I traveled around downtown and then to parts beyond, looking for a scene that I could relate to. I came across this little produce stand, which also seems to sell plants and flowers. It looked like the perfect spot for me to paint - a charming little place - half garden, half small business, and completely picturesque. Small businesses like this one are what give character to the community. You can see what I mean by clicking the location, here!

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

 Nocturne in Blue
12" x 16"  oil on canvas


This is an imaginary landscape, made from slathering on favorite colors with knife and brush, working up textures and adding lines till there was "something". I really didn't know how it would all come together, but eventually a scene developed. I like the feeling of calm and mystery; it turned out well.

This painting covers all sides of the canvas. It can be framed, but you could hang it up, just as it is.
