Signs of Fall

3" x 3" oil on canvas panel

This acorn was painted from a photo sent to me by some friends. It is a lot smaller painting than my usual posts, about 1/4 normal, but I have a frame for this size and I had some panel left over after I cut out some other paintings......lucky thing I did not throw away what looked like junk! I love the springy green color of acorns when they fall before they are supposed another month or two they will be all brown. Thanks for the inspiration, Janice and Rick!

Lucky Find

6" x 6" oil on canvas panel
$95 plus $12 shipping

I call this one Lucky Find because I think that finding a pear with its leaves still on at the grocery store is super lucky! I actually hand carried it through the check out line and out to the car! I was thinking that I needed a red pear to complete my pear here it is. A friend told me that she thought these pears look wooden...I think she is right. I took a few pictures of this little guy so you might be seeing more of him in upcoming blog posts. I hope you like it as much as I do!
