Mary Cassatt

Hi there, I painted this Monday on one of my little 6 x 6 Raymar panels. This is painted looking at a painting by Mary Cassatt. It isn't exactly like her image I just looked at her painting and free handed everything. I cropped it a bit to fit this square format. I have painted so many different subjects on these and I'm having a ball. I think I have a dozen and I am going strong, hopefully they'll go over big in October at our studio.

Please check out some of my artwork on Ebay- free shipping this time.

So nice of you to stop by~ Enjoy your day!

Silver Teapot, still life

Hi! I painted this recently, a bit larger for me. 16 X 20 oil on a stretched canvas. I purchased this old silver teapot a while back and set up this somewhat elaborate set up. I hope you find it interesting, I think the tulips and the spoon lead you back into the painting. Silver can be fun and a bit challenging to paint, I try hard to paint what I see and hope that it ends up reading like silver.

Little Barn Painting

Hi Everyone, Another little 6 X 6 painting on a Raymar panel. This was painted from a reference photo I took somewhere here in Ohio. These little paintings will sell for $50 and that includes a wood table top easel. Let me know if you might be interested in purchasing any of them, there will be a bit of shipping added to the price. I photographed this one outside on a bench in the front, I am always struggling to get decent photos of my work. I feel they look so much better in person, they seemed grayed down in the photos most of the time. I'll just keep trying.

Hello, As you can see I painted another boat painting, I love the colors in and around the water. This is another 6 x 6 Raymar panel and it comes with a table top easel. I just ordered 20 more of this size panel, I'm really hoping these little paintings go over well in October. As I mentioned I am the Featured Artist in October at our studio in the Pendleton Art Center and I also have another event I will be setting up for on October 11th.

Hi, I hope your day is going well. Well as you can tell I am having a great time painting these little 6 x 6 canvases. I think I mentioned it but I ordered black wood easels for these. I am selling them with the easel for $50 at my opening in October. If I post one you are interested in let me know and I'll sell it to you with a bit for shipping before then. I posted the last one on Facebook and it sold right away, yea! I'll be painting more boats.

I painted this on Monday, I love chickadees. Such a sweet little bird. This is oil on a 6 X 6 Raymar panel.

Thanks for stopping by.

Acton Lake

Hi, This is another little one, 6 x 6 on a Raymar panel. I painted this in Houston Woods looking over Acton Lake. It actually was a full moon but I thought if I painted it that way it might look like the sun. There was a row of pole lamps off to the right reflecting light on the boats. My first boats I think, I tried to paint what I was seeing and not analyze it so hopefully everything reads correctly. I purchased little easels to set these panels on, I think they display wonderfully that way.

Please check out some of my artwork on Ebay - offering several paintings at reduced prices.

Fall will be here before we know it, this summer has been unbearable with such high temps so I'm looking forward to getting out this fall and painting some fall colors.

SOLD! <3

Have a wonderful day- see you soon. Hugs

My plein air paintings from Milford, Ohio

Hi, These are the 2 paintings I did last Saturday at the OPAS event in Milford Ohio. I had several nice comments on them but neither sold. They are oil on 6 X 6 Raymar panels and it was fun working on this small canvas. It was a fun day, great weather and nice people.

I just went camping the last few days and I painted outside one evening by the lake after dark. It was such a pleasant experience and I had a full moon looking down on me. Still need to tweek that one a bit and then maybe I'll share it with you.

A Bunny

Hi there! Isn't he cute? I had fun with this one. It's fun to paint things with faces every once in a while. This is oil on a 6 x 6 Raymar panel. I have decided to paint the pack of 10 I bought and try to sell them at our studio in October when I am the featured artist. This size is cute on an easel on sitting on a shelf. I painted another rabbit yesterday and I may do some birds.


Have a great day

Rose of Sharon

Hi there, I painted this a couple of weeks ago and may go back in and tweek it a bit yet. I cut some blooms from my Rose of Sharon bush and set this up. I love purple, my favorite color. This little bowl I picked up a while back keeps showing up in my paintings, what can I say? I like it! This is oil on a 8 x 10 Raymar panel.

I painted in Milford yesterday at the OPAS event, Ohio Plein Air Society. A fun day, artists painting all over town and then we meet for a wet paint sale. I love seeing the results of the event. I painted 2 6x6 panels and was pretty happy with them. I received some nice comments on them but they didn't sell. Oh well, no regrets it was a fun day. All we can do is try to do our best work and the rest is up to the customer I guess. I think it's a tricky business, selling I mean. I want the customer to love my painting and buy the work for that reason. I want to be friendly and not pushy but I notice some artists are kind of all over people and I see that sometimes works for them. How do you handle customers that attend shows?

I deleted a few artists from my blog list, I am sorry if you happen to be one. I hate to send people over to blogs that haven't been updated in months but I completely understand if you can't keep up with your blog for some reason, life happens.

Thank you for visiting

Middletown, Ohio

Hello there, I have been working on this triptych for the last several months. This is a street scene in Middletown Ohio near the Pendleton Art Center where I share a studio. I am the featured artist for October and I thought this would be interesting hanging outside our studio. When I am the featured artist I get to hang my art on the exterior wall of the studio and the inside of that wall also. I think I am finished with it but I was tweaking it again today, lol. The center canvas is 16 x 20 and the 2 outside canvases are 12 x 16. They are the 1 1/2 deep canvases and I painted the edges dark. I will spread them out a bit so the length will be somewhere around 45".

This Friday the 5th is "First Friday" at our studio from 5-9, Saturday is second look Saturday and we will also be open 11-2. Please stop by if you are in Middletown Ohio.

Saturday I won't be at the studio, I plan to do a plein air event in Milford Ohio. Hoping for a dry day. We paint from 9-3 with a wet paint sale from 3:30 - 5.
