"Royal Purple" 12"x12" oil sketch $195.

"Royal Purple" was inspired by the color of the goblet itself. I have a hard time passing by a garage sales and stores like T.J. Max because the clearances boxes can be such a fun treasure hunt. I bought this goblet for a quarter at a garage sale. The color and size and semi-transparent glass make it one of those challenging pieces to paint again and again.

"Mac Red" 8"x8" Oil Painting $149.

Last week I posted my first paintings on Etsy. If you're not familiar with Etsy, it is an online site where you can buy and sell distinctly original handmade items. My etsy site ( I know it's ridiculously long), will be for my original, one of a kind (not giclee prints), oil paintings. Eventually I will also have another etsy site for my handmade fabric cards. I hope you'll stop by and take a look.
I specialize in rich layers of jewel tone colors, created mostly with a palette knife. "Mac Red" was inspired by the crisp flavor this little organic apple boasts. Yes, I nearly always eat the fruit and veggies I paint as the local farmers markets are a favorite source for still life props.
"Mac Red" was painting on a museum quality, gallery-wrapped (means no frame necessary) ready to hang stretched canvas. 8"x8" $149.
