This is a screaming deal. It's a finished complete painting, one of a kind, ready to mount on matboard and frame, or just frame. One in my series called "Tiny Palms" this is number 4.

Spring Sign

11"x14" Acrylic on Stretched Canvas, $500
This was so much fun to paint, a minimum of strokes to keep it simple, some knife work and gold iridescent paint in the background. The mama bird in our ficus tree hatched 2 babies today - right by the front door. I love that she (or someone who looks just like her!) comes to our tree every spring to build a new nest. She keeps a sharp eye on us as we enter and leave the front door.

Autumn Light, Acrylic Painting with Collage Elements

12"x16" Painting on Stretched Canvas, $600
This piece has several layers of paint and varnish and was accomplished over several days. There are luminescent paints included as well, so lots of dimension. Also, done in the "negative space painting" technique, meaning the subject was sculpted by painting the air around the trees, thus painting the negative space.

12"x16" Contemporary Floral Painting, Acrylic on Stretched Canvas, $800
The abstract quality and expressive movement are appealing to me. Peonies are my favorite flowers ever and continue to be interesting and challenging to portray.
