Hollyhocks At The Mission


Hollyhocks At The Mission  acrylic 9x12
Purchase info here. 

Painted from my photo reference taken at Mission San Juan Capistrano, a slightly different style for me, as I was using acrylic on a black gesso ground.  The black peeks through here and there giving it a nice unity and graphic quality.  Framed in a contemporary black floater frame suitable for this work.  Ready to hang.  I had a hard time getting a good photo of this piece.  If you purchase, your satisfaction is guaranteed.  Check out my return policy by clicking on the purchase info link above.

Jack-O-Happy  8x8 oil
Purchase info here.

Last fall I turned off the lights in my studio and positioned my plein air easel near the open door for just enough light to see what I was doing.  I lit a candle in this happy little glass pumpkin and dropped a handful of candy.  Custom framed in an antique gold (not shiny) frame.  Ready to hang with your other fall decor!  If you're considering a purchase, please email me for a picture of it in the frame.  Happy Fall, everyone!

Purchase info here. 

In January our Navel Orange tree gave us sweet oranges that found their way into several of my paintings.  Orange, red and pink together make a color combination that I love.
