Logs and Blue Stream


Paler sky, softer colors than the last stream painting. Looked downstream this time, and wanted to try a vertical composition. Still caught by the strong movement and shadows of these logs, plus the blues and purples of the stream in sun and shadow.

10 x 12 inches (25 x 30 cm), oil on board, 2013.

$250 total (frame, shipping, and all taxes included).

Logs Across Stream, Spring




















Wintry woods, still very little color. I found myself looking for water with reflections after all those cattail paintings. Ended up at a stream with deep blues and purples, new green, and warm orange. Peaceful and quiet but for the wind and the spring birds.

Merry Cattails




























Reminding myself to "Play, don't produce" today. (Seems like I remember this on Friday best...maybe it feels like time to play :-)) Scraped the whole thing down at one point and started over, trying to capture the feel of what I was seeing, and the colors on the fly. Sunny and windy, alternately cold and warm; had to wait while the clouds passed for the warm colors to come back. Cool green reflections of trees.

12 x 10 inches (30 x 25 cm), oil on hardboard.

Resting Cattails
























Windy, colors shifting. Intimate scene with just a few reeds. I chose the spot for one set of colors and then the light changed, but it was all still pretty so I just kept going, picking up the new colors along the way.
