Hi there, I have sooo many paintings in my studio and I think from time to time I will post one here at a reduced price. This was in my studio for $160 but I am offering it here for $130 and that includes shipping. I will ship anywhere within the continental US. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas and framed in a 3" solid wood frame with a gold leaf finish that is crackled and glazed, the painting is wired and ready to hang on your wall. This is a sweet little beach scene with two little girls playing in the water. Email me with any questions at email@example.com You can purchase this using the paypal button or contact me and I would accept a check if you don't mind waiting for it to clear. Sorry there is a bit of glare.
Have a great weekend

Hi! Several weeks ago I participated in an event called Paint the Town in Loveland, Ohio. I know I posted about it but I don't think I showed you any of my completed work. I painted 2 paintings and this is one of those. This is oil on a 11 x 14 Raymar panel. I took photos and got started on this at home, setting up my sketch with thin paint. I spent several more hours standing on the curb in Loveland, in the sun, fighting the bees to complete this, lol. The wet paint sale was not well attended with only a few sales, such a shame. I always enjoy painting there. Loveland is a busy town in the summer, a bike trail goes right through it and there are cafes that have tables outside with wonderful colorful umbrellas.
Spent yesterday in Middletown Ohio painting on the street, still working on my large triptych for October, I'll share that with you eventually.
Have a wonderful day and happy painting!

Hi there, This is a commission, a cute little business in Lebanon Ohio. I met the very nice gal that owns this shop while demonstrating at the Warren County Arts Festival. This is oil on a 11 x 14 Raymar panel. I took it to a place where I was pleased with it and then took it to her to see if she wanted any changes made. She was happy with it just where it is, woo hoo. So after a bit of drying time and a coat of Re-touch varnish, back in the frame and I will deliver it to her.
Have a wonderful day!

Hi Everyone, I completed this recently and submitted it today to our local arts festival. This is oil on a 11 x 14 Raymar panel. The background color is unusual for me and I ended up custom ordering a frame for it that I liked. The festival isn't until September but the deadline for submissions was coming up soon.
I just finished a commission of a frozen custard shop, I think I am finished, lol. I am taking it up tomorrow for final approval. Really hoping I don't have to start making little changes now but you never know.
Also I am working on a triptych, a series of three stretched canvases with a city scene, having a great time with this one.
Having quite the heat wave here, we are under a heat advisory. Once the heat lets up I'll be back outside to paint. I must admit the older I get the harder it is to tolerate heat or really cold temps. I just want it perfect all the time, lol. Good luck, right?
See you soon

Hi there, I painted this a few nights ago from a set up, one of my new copper pots and some sweet daisies. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas.
I painted outside today on the street in Middletown, Ohio, that is the town where our new studio space is. Met a lot of nice people and a few strange ones, lol. One gal wanted to know if I was going to hang my painting on the outside of the building I was painting, lol. Why would you think that?? I love the people that tease you about painting them in your painting, I have noticed that it is usually men. It was the perfect day to be out, I loved it.

Hello, This painting is oil on a 8 X 10 stretched canvas and framed in a solid wood frame that is gold leafed, crackled and glazed. This painting was done from a set up using an antique mortal and pestle and pears. I am very pleased with this and I know you would be too. The painting has wonderful texture in it, very painterly. The painting is sealed with Soluvar varnish and the frame is wired and ready to hang on your wall. Email me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a wonderful day!

Hello, I painted this one a while back, it is oil on a 8 x 10 Raymar panel. I purchase the smooth cotton in the Raymar panels and love them. I do paint frequently on a stretched canvas but I love this firm surface too. Lots of texture in this one, I used a palette knife on a lot of it.
Tomorrow is the 4th of July, I have about 30 people coming for a picnic. Really hoping for dry weather, we have had a crazy wet summer.
Happy 4th to you and yours. <3
