1117 Gaspe Scene, Men at the Boat, 8x10, oil on board

Sold-Nova Scotia
I started this years ago and finally took it out today and worked on it again. It's a scene from Gaspe around Perce or New Carlisle. 

1116 Peonies in a Jewel Jar, 8x10, oil on board

These lovely peonies have been in this jar for a week! I started this painting last Sunday and finished it today. I felt like giving up every time I looked at them but felt guilty. They seemed like they wouldn't give up so how could I?
 Well it's a sweet painting. Even if I say so myself.

1115 Wild Roses, 8x10, oil on board

Here's my painting beside my setup. I painted it yesterday when the petals were still on. I love the wall paper behind the roses but I felt it would get too busy.

I picked up these lovely flags from Safeway the other day. They didn't keep long even in the fridge. I had to work fast. I painted the flowers first and ended up painting the jar after the flowers were done...sigh. I'm getting a little bored with the wall paper. I will look around the house for some props. 

1101 Daffodils in a Jar, 8x10, oil on board

I love daffodils. The first flower of spring that appears at the markets. The flower that represents Hope.

1100 Montreal Winter Scene, 8x10, oil on board

I painted this on a canvas board and didn't notice it had a slight dent straight down the middle. So this is one that won't go for sale.

I really like the high contrast in this painting. It is very dynamic and there's a lot happening but it's also very simplified and the centre of interest is very clear.

I just modified this painting. The old version had a boot dangling from the wire spanning the street. I removed it and painted in the figures. I like the new narrative.
