"Great Aunt Margaret" SOLD

12"x12" Oil on 1/4" gallery-wrapped canvas
This is the painting I did today (8-25-10)

This painting was painted Alla-Prima and I haven't touched it yet. I will have to "live" with it a couple/three days and look at it again to see if there is a need to retouch. But as for now, I am pleased.

This location is "The Wreck" at Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant. I posted an earlier painting of the docks at the Wreck with a full description of what the Wreck is. . . This is just to the left of the building that I painted last time. This place offers myriads of vignettes from which to create a beautiful painting.

"Cathedral on Broad" SOLD

10"x8" Oil on Linen SOLD
Another presentation of the church series paintings. This one shows the steeple as well.

"Still-Life with Jar of Honey and Watermelon Slice" SOLD


8"x10" Oil on Linen

A Breakfast Still-Life at a friend's house.

The morning sun glowed through the honey in the jar and tipped the edge of the watermelon slice. I had to paint it.
