“Autumn Skies II”
6″x12 original acrylic on stretched canvas frame.
Another windswept tree, but this time the leaves have taken flight and have been whisked up and around the moon. The sky colors of this piece have all sorts of warm fall hues. The landscape is cooled off by the contrasting blues of the hill. This auction runs for 3 days and ends Sunday (Oct. 6th).
This week’s penny auction. Update: Sold!
“Autumn Skies” 6″x12″” original acrylic on canvas painting. There will be a series of a few Autumn Skies that you can catch at auction, though I won’t reveal them until the day of the auction 🙂 This piece is a landscape of browns and greens with a shooting star off in the distance. I’ve brought back one of my little houses under a windswept tree, with autumn leaves getting carried away in the wind.
This weeks penny auction. Update: Sold!
“Cherish” – 16×20 original canvas painting on 1.5″ wooden stretcher bar frame.
This weeks auction is a jeweled tone landscape filled with little whimsical whatnots. A little black capped chickadee gazes upward to a hanging heart ornament.

Reason behind the title: I mentioned in the listing that little birds warm my heart. The original Greek word for “cherish” is thalpo – which means “to keep warm”. No, I am not a linguist – just a random fact I happened upon while painting this piece so that’s how the name came about. 🙂
I mentioned in last weeks post that there would be no new original art until I completed work for an upcoming show. Well, I have a few pieces that have been boxed away since I returned from my last show, plus one I just happened to finish today. I guess there will be some new ones this week. Here is the first one, “Celestial Drive”…see it on etsy.
I have a few in progress and several more sketched out, but here is one of them completed. Basically this series will always have a window that features “something”. This one brings a hazy dream-like landscape into focus. See it on etsy.
