Head full of ideas

I sold 4 paintings this weekend.  The art sale was sluggish, due to crappy weather and crappy economic mood.  However, I sold 4 more paintings than I would have sitting home.

I got back at it today.  While sitting there listening to the shoppers' remarks I thought of a zillion things I want to paint.

John's Sunflower

16" X 20" oil on canvas.  Unframed $250

I tried something a little different this time.  It's big and sort of controlled.  I want to try it again and get jiggy with it, but for the first bat out of the box (sorry it's World Series time) I'm pretty happy with it.  I love the background.

Aubergine #3

My favorite of the three paintings!  5" x 7" oil on masonite, $75.

For some reason this one just talks to me.  Maybe it's the composition?

Aubergine #2

5" x 7" oil on masonite, $75.

The 2nd time around was a whole 'nother story. The background made the colors in the eggplant look very different.

This one is smaller than #1, but due to the wacky way this site is managed, it inhibits how the pictures show up. Alas. But hey, if you're interested, email me and I'll send you a gianormous one.
