Paintings, 2010

Here are the paintings completed since  2010. More to follow.

These two 7 X 5 paintings were donated to the Meals on Wheels program to be raffled off at the Salem Senior Services, Salem, NH.

Super Nova

20 X 16

Acrylic on Canvas

$150

Mixing two hobbies, painting and astronomy, I am trying some space art for a change of subject.

Flowers, 2010
16 X 20
Acrylic on Canvas
$225

Shadowbox
20 X 24,  October 2010
Acrylic on canvas
$650
I went back to my favorite subject, still life.  I had several of these objects in the studio.  The wood shoe, glass insulator and small black jar were found in antique shops, the birds and scissors were my Mother-in-law’s, and the Hot Wheel truck is my grandson’s. The shadow box and other items were from my imagination.  A fun painting to do with all the different surfaces and textures to paint.

121 Taylors Sawmill 2010
Taylor Sawmill
Derry, New Hampshire
24 X 20,    2010
Acrylic on canvas
Private collection
Located in Derry, New Hampshire, Taylor’s Sawmill is a water powered, vertical sawmill that operates during the summer months.  It’s open two Saturdays a month when the water behind the dam is high enough to turn the overshot wheel.  When operating the whole building rumbles and the smell of fresh-cut wood is intoxicating.

Red-wing Blackbird
Acrylic on canvas
16″ X 20″, June  2010
$350
I photographed this Red-wing Blackbird while kayaking on the Pow-wow River in Kingston NH. He was perched on a tree stump along a mud bank and was singing and flashing the red and yellow chevrons on his wings.

Apples in Sunlight
Acrylic on canvas
24″ X 16″ April, 2010
$750
We visited a local apple orchard and I took a bunch of photos of the produce for sale. There was a dormer in the roof of the barn and a single shaft of sunlight was hitting a group of baskets of apples on a table. The photo had strong sunlight on the apples and deep shadows around the edges and this framed the baskets of apples perfectly.

A Seagull’s View
Acrylic on Canvas
24 X 20  March, 2010
$350

The River’s Bend
Acrylic on canvas
24 X 20,  2010
$350
For this painting, I wanted to experiment with a loose and quickly done style that reflected the visual and atmospheric impression my eyes saw. I wanted to paint this scene quickly. I used very loose slashes, dabs and strokes of color on a very smooth, toned canvas. For more details, go to Painting Process for the River’s Bend.

Common Loon, Canobie Lake, N. H.

A late January storm hit, and this was the view from my back deck as the storm ended.
