Framed ~ "Petals of Sunshine"


Well, it's the last day of January and time for my final "clear the studio" listing.

I framed this piece in a 7/8" dark brown (almost black) wooden frame, which really makes the rose stand out and complements nicely the dark background of the painting.  The framed size is 11 1/4 x 11 1/4" so it's an easy piece to hang for a bright spot of color.  This watercolor was done on 140# cold press watercolor paper, and framed with acid free mats and backing and u.v. filtering glass.

Snowy Field at Sunset


With the extremely cold weather we're experiencing, I had to post this scene of the farm field adjacent to our home.  I guess a trade off for the cold weather is the beautiful sunsets in winter.  This is an oil on canvas, 11 x 14.  There certainly is great beauty in all seasons, we just have to look for it.

Crimson Glow ~ Framed

Still in January organizing mode!  This small-ish watercolor piece is being offered framed.  It is not only double matted, but the mats are spaced apart by 1/8" to give the piece a real feeling of depth in the frame.  The frame is a 1" rich dark brown wood, with subtle lighter shading on the inside and outside edges.  The image area is 6.25" x 9", and the total dimension with the frame is 13 1/8" x 15 7/8".

The process for painting this piece is wet into wet and is done quickly and freely.  It's Winsor and Newton watercolors on Arches paper.  Enjoy!

Two Red Apples ~ Framed


Well, it's January and time to make some room in the studio for new work.  This 8 x 10" oil painting of two red apples comes frame in lovely gold frame with blue/gray accents.  There is a little glare in this photo due to the varnishing, but the background is a nice solid dark.
