Pear and Red Grapes #2

Pear and Red Grapes #2 - 5x7 oil on canvas. I'm waaay behind on posting. I've begun listing on Ebay and there is quite a learning curve there. I listed my first few paintings with the wrong shipping (!?!) which I was sure was going to cost me an arm and a leg. But it all worked out as several buyers purchased more than one painting and that gave me the opportunity to offer different shipping options. I'm starting to get a feel for it now. It was a rough couple of weeks but it's all good! :)

Cup O Blueberries

Cup O Blueberries 6x6 oil on canvas. I've been debating high key vs. low key and I think for the minis - high key wins. I think. For now anyway. Nothing is written stone.

Thistles 5 Gone to Seed

Click to bid

Thistles 5 - Gone to Seed. 6x6 oil on canvas. Well, here we are, at the end of the thistle rage. I found one more thistle bush with unbloomed blossoms but it appears the goats are now eating all the blooms so I doubt I'll have anymore for this year. Maybe that's a good thing.

I spent much of the day re arranging my studio in the almost 90 degree weather only to realize I think I liked it better the old way. So I'm going back out after dinner to put it back. Oh well, you dont know if you dont try, right? Has to be in working order tomorrow because I have a few ideas I'd like to explore next week.

Thistles 4 Going to Seed

Click to bid

Thistles 4 - Going to Seed 6x6 oil on canvas. We moved our steer into my thistle field so I've lost my really good source for plump, fluffy thistles. The steer was bottle fed as a calf and behaves like a bad mannered puppy. The last time he chased me around the wheelbarrow was the last time he was going to chase me period! I no longer go into his field and so will have to find a new source for my little florals. He will only be a problem for a couple more weeks. After that....well, he goes where all fat steers are destined.

Thistles 2

Thistles 2 - 4x6 oil on canvas. Yep. Another thistle painting. Can you blame me? I get to use both my permanent violet AND my thalo green. These are cool weeds.
