11 x 14 oil on gessobord

This is a study I did today of my husband.  It is not completed as it needs some serious work on the hand - it's too small and not at the right angle.  When I paint sitting down I have distortions that I don't see until I stand.  Anyway I just wanted to post something but it needs another session.   5-7-13:  Worked more on it today and will probably leave it as is.  I posted on top of the previous photo I took last week.

Madison Landing

12 x 16 oil on linen - SOLD

This family was out watching boats come in at the landing near our house.  It wasn't a very sunny afternoon but it was one of the first pleasant days we have had in a while.   The canvas I used had accidentally gotten folded over and there is a vertical crease in it almost in the center of the painting.  Hopefully it will stretch out if I decide to do anything with this one.

Easter Bonnet

11 x 14 oil on stretched canvas

This is a painting from about 5 years back.  I have been getting ready for an art show this weekend and haven't had time to do any more painting, just the yucky part of pricing, labeling, varnishing, etc.   The weather has not cooperated for the varnishing so hopefully they will all be dry before tomorrow night.   I really should have posted this one on Easter!
