Massacre Pond

10 x 10 Oil on canvas panel
$100 unframed, additional for framing

History of the area has it that an Indian battle took place on this waterway, hence the name. I don't remember the date, but it conjures up some vivid images for me.

I love poppies, and could keep painting them. It must be their wonderful colors. I have some great soft salmon colors in my garden, too.

A Cherished Life

12 x 12 Oil on masonite
$150.00 additional for framing
$10.00 Shipping
email for info

The name for this painting was difficult, it is a statue from an historic cemetery I just toured in Portland. I have never been there before, seeing it is not near my neighboring haunts :), and was astonished by it's beauty. I can't wait to go back and hopefully do a guided walking tour(in warm weather). I really don't have a lot of info, but it is on the national historic register and is filled with beautiful statues and sculptures of the victorian era. It has a walking trail and wetlands, so it is also a wildlife habitat of sorts and is used by the Audubon for bird migratory studies.
There was snow cover and a lot was hidden, and I did not find any names or history on the statues I photographed. But after painting this sweet, angelic figure I would love to find out more! I really loved this study and felt there must be a story and now I need to know. As I was enlarging the photo on the computer, I even noticed the eyes are blue, and the lips are red which was a big surprise, the eyes matched the color of the sky, it is captivating!

Through the Birches

$115.00 unframed, $135.00 framed
$12.oo for shipping
please email for paypal info

This painting reminds me of the cold day that it was, gray with those patches of snow. A typical early winter day, the kind that make you look forward to going in and sitting by the fire. It was the experience, because it does have those warm grass colors, even though I am still feeling the chill!

I had driven by this barn and eyed it many times before I finally photographed it and painted it. Sometimes I scold myself for not taking the time to stop for special places I find, always in a hurry!
