Plum Crazy, oil on hardboard, 6x6" $99

This silly tray actually prompted this painting.  It's black plastic.  It think it came as a carry out tray for something picked up at the grocery.  Not by us.  Someone attending a potluck here took a short cut.  However, my husband has adopted it as his favorite carrying device for hauling corn on the cob to the barbecue and back. That glossy surface just seemed to beckon.

The Dresser, oil on hardboard, 12x12" $396

This is the beginning of a small series utilizing the same pose.  Each version portrays a totally different emotion for me.  Consequently I expect each painting to evoke similar differences for the viewers.

Singled Out, oil on hardboard, 6x8", $132

This is another one of the series I began posting.  It's so chilly here this AM that it's hard to remember standing in that hot sun, painting.
At least in this one you can see the cow.  We were actually set up in the parking lot of a little gas station/stop n shop.  It was hard to concentrate with all the cars whizzing by.  That said, several customers came over to chat.  That's always fun.  It's amazing how many people say "I'm a painter". :)  Kind of a feel good moment.  Painting can be so rewarding....when it's not totally frustrating you!
