This young lady had such a strong cast shadow that I just had to try and paint her...even the subtle shift of values reads as a dark and a light under and on her chin and her cheek. That's one thing I learned this year.. among other things...but a lighter touch with the pigments can be just as effective as a strong hand.

I'll get back to my card sets sometime soon...but thought I'd post some of my newest work. This stately, well dressed, elegant lady looked stunning with her fancy sunglasses and jaunty red hat...I'm glad I had a chance to paint her and use all the red pigments on my palette! 15"x11"

More cards for you to peruse...I had fun with the four seasons of Vermont Farms (above) and had a collection of wine bottle images that I did for a poster for a local Fine Wine and Food festival. And the roosters are always a favorite of mine to paint. As I said in the previous post there are 8 cards total (2 of each image) and they are photographs of my paintings put on a deckled edge, blank notecard (5"x7"). They are $21.95 per pack plus $3.05 S/H for a total of $25.00

Today I'm posting some of my card sets which are for sale at two or three Vermont locations, but not anywhere else...so I thought why not here? I'll post some others in the coming days like rooster card sets, Sunflowers, Peonies, poppies, Irises and more...so stay tuned. If you'd like one of these sets just click on the Buy it Now button and I'll send them to you! The cards are blank with a deckled edge and are packaged in a clear plastic box. There are two each of the four images you see for a total of eight cards.
They are $21.95 per set plus $3.05 S/H for a total of $25.00 each.

This post goes along with my last one about my work being licensed...these two images are on "stained glass" and are about 6"x8". I was so excited to get these samples in the mail..the reproduction and quality is really outstanding. It is so much fun to have my work represented on such an array of different products. The company that manufactures these is called Truth in Glass and hopefully they'll show up in a store near you!
