"Fading Godetias" (matted)


Fading Godetia
7.5x5
Oil on Prepared Paper
Archivally Matted
$140

Godetias are so lovely that they are even beautiful when they are fading away. I think the dark blue background perked them up.

"Orange Lillies and Delphinium" (Matted)


Orange Lillies and Delphinium
7.5x5
Oil on Prepared Paper
Archivally matted
$140

This is as bright as a contrast can get - complementary blue and orange. Anything looks good with delphiniums, but these orange lillies really pop!

"Three Daisies at Joe's Pond" (matted)


Three Daisies at Joe's Pond
7.5x5
Watercolor
Archivally matted
$115

When I was taking a summer education class at St. Johnsbury Academy in Vermont, I took a break one summer day and followed my nose to Joe's Pond, where I sat in the grass, enjoyed the sun and did this watercolor. Was the watercolor just an excuse for sitting by the pond that day? Maybe. Sort of like fishing. I always thought that catching the fish was second to actually being out there and having a reason to do so. Joe's Pond is in northern Vermont, and I always like to think of it as the pond where they put a figure in a chair on the ice and take bets as to when the ice will break up and the pond will gobble him up. No ice that day I was there, though.

"Two Open Godetias" (matted)


Two Open Godetias
7.5x5
Oil on prepared paper
matted archivally
$140

I think godetias are beautiful flowers. Not quite a rose, not quite a lily but with the softness of the rose and the structure of the lily, and a delicacy that I love. I enjoyed doing these two with the various shades of white.

Pretty wild color. I think the christmas cactus is a really unusual flower. In this one I thought I would make the most lively background I could think up!

"Pink Orchid" (matted)



Pink Orchid
7.5x5
Oil on prepared paper
Archival mat
$140


Everyone that paints flowers has to paint an orchid sometime. While my favorite are the more delicate and wild ones, like the "Nodding Ladies Tresses" that were near our pond when we lived in Vermont, I got this one at Valentines Day and painted it for my husband. But it's OK to sell it!

"Yellow Lily" (matted)


Yellow Lily
Oil on prepared Paper
matted archivally
5x7.5
$140

Yellow sunflowers, yellow daisies, yellow freesias, and now today a yellow lily! Hmm I wonder what that means. I don't think of myself as a big yellow user, but maybe its because there are lots of yellow flowers out there!  I remember painting this in a yard of an acquaintance. There were hundreds of the orange tiger lillies with the downward curving petals, but for some reason this is the one I chose, maybe because of it's rarity in the scene. Later, I regretted not painting the tiger lillies, and started looking for another opportunity. It took a long time to find it again, but I did eventually, in Maine, outside a motel where we stayed on a mini honeymoon. (I think every couple should have at least a couple of days of honeymoon each year!)
