"Quiet River" Oil Painting

"Quiet River"
12 x 24 inch Oil

This is my last painting of 2015.  I completed it a few weeks ago--- just before taking time off for the holidays. I had almost forgotten about it which is the sign of a good mental vacation.

It is a bigger painting but not too big  --- 12 x 24 inches.  I enjoyed the enlongated horizontal format which I think supports the feeling of being on the river at sunset.  

Now looking forward to 2016 and trying out some new ideas which have been percolating...

Happy New Year!

Art Sparkle for the Holidays

This Saturday night will be Sparkle on Market Street.  An annual holiday event on the first Saturday of December.

Here's what will be new in my studio.

For the holidays, I will be framing my frameable notecards in 8x10 frame.  $45 each.

Just finished framing "Middle C" for someone
I got this idea from a client who came back and told me she had framed 3 of them and hung them together.  I am using the leftover frames from my digital painting display a few years ago.  I will be framing them until the frames are all gone.  First come first served.

You pick your favorite image from the notecards and I will frame it for you.

And here are the latest paintings

"Pink Road" 8x10 Oil
"Winter Mist" 12 x16 Oil

"Old Scudder Barn" 8x10 Oil

Please stop in to see me if you are on the street!
