A Big Sunflower

A Big Sunflower
6" x 6"  Oil
$75.00 + $10. s/h

Some of the sun flowers in our back yard are big and start drooping when they get really tall.  I understand the feeling!  I feel like drooping from the heat we've had this summer.

$75.00 + $10. s/h
SOLD

Another sunflower from our back yard.  I love how there's both warm and cool yellows.  And I really like that with the sky in the background you get the feeling of how tall all of these have grown.

Back Yard Sunflower

Back Yard Sunflower
6" x 6"  Oil
$75.00 + $10. s/h

I decided I better spend a few more days painting in the back yard while the sunflowers are still in bloom.  We have several different types of sunflowers, the big "typical" ones and these smaller more daisy like ones.  The gold finches love these daisy like ones and our yard is filled with the singing of these birds.  And, the birds are the same color as sunflowers!  They are so beautiful!  I wish they'd stand still long enough to paint them!

Orchard House Shadow

Orchard House Shadow
11" x 14"  Oil
$245.00 + $10. s/h

I loved the shadow on the side of the Orchard House at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site.  I went back two mornings to get the same light and shadow.  Rock Ledge Ranch is next to the Garden Of The Gods and is a living ranch with animals, gardens, historic buildings from several periods.  I've been there many times and have painted their barn, sheep, flowers, pond, house.

La Foret Chapel Back Gate

La Foret Chapel Back Gate
8" x 6"  Oil
$75.00 + $10. s/h  


This is my second piece from La Foret.  This is the back gate into the Chapel garden.  

At one point in the morning I was inside the chapel and had climbed up a tiny circular stairway into the choir loft.  While up there I heard a motorcycle pull up.  Soon, a man walked into the chapel in his motorcycle leathers, and sat down and started playing.  You just never know what you're going to see when out for a morning of painting.

Springtime on Pikes Peak

Springtime on Pikes Peak
6" x 8"  Oil
SOLD

I painted this view of Pikes Peak one spring day when my plein air group, Garden Artists, was painting at the Garden Of The Gods Visitor Center.  It sold today at the Little London Market.  I love it when I get to meet the owner of a painting.  This man used to live in Colorado Springs but has moved to Arizona.

I recently got a "Square".  I've tried swiping credit cards and can't get it to work.  I used it successfully today by typing in the credit card number.  Any one out there using a Square and have any advise?
