Some new ones - mostly florals

Some new ones...

Experiment with a genre used now and again by Gary Jenkins - floral with landscape vignette. In this case, the vignette is another scene of North Dakota sunflower fields taken from the train window on our 45th anniversary trip. 6" x 4" (sold)

The flooded quarry at Halibut Point State Park, Rockport, Massachusetts. The single red tree growing precariously in cracks in the quarry wall caught my attention. 6" x 4". Available in my Etsy Shop

An incredible gladiolus from our garden, a random survivor from last year... and from a random assortment. 4" x 6". Available; contact me for for more information.

Another random survival gladiolus, doubly incredible. I spent nearly two hours mixing purples until I achieved 0ne close to the original. 4" x 6" Available; contact me for more inforatmoin

Our glads and a hydrangea on a fence line graciously installed by our neighbors. 6" x 4" (Not available)

Long hiatus and a new direction

Busy as could be, for months... I've taken a new direction, dabbling in oils, and will be posting new paintings here. Meanwhile, here are a few:

Perfect beach day, northern Michigan (6" x 4") Available in my Etsy Shop

Two rose of sharon (6" x 4"). Available in my Etsy Shop

Sunflower fields in morning mist - taken from the window of our train last summer on a memorable 45th wedding anniversary trip... by train from Chicago to Glacier National Park via Amtrak's Empire Builder, then on to Portland and finally up to Vancouver Island B.C.
(6" x 4"). (Not available... Kittie wanted this... she loved the colors of the sunflower fields.)

Red daylily and bud, abstract background (sold). (6" x 4")

At the moment, I put selected ones on eBay for a little more than the cost of materials. (Trying to keep the hobby self-supporting).
