Cream Pitcher with Red Grapes

Oil on panel, 8 x 8 in.
This painting sold during the Open Studios Tour to a customer from Paradise, California. As you may have heard, most of the residents of Paradise lost their homes in the devastating Camp Fire. Unfortunately, I don't have the contact info for this customer but if you're out there and you read this, please contact me, I would like to provide you with a replacement painting, no charge. May you once again have a wall of your own to hang it on. :)

Arrangement in Red and Green

Oil on panel, 8 x 8 in.
The person who bought this painting said it reminded her of those old-fashioned striped bathing suits you would see on men in old photographs. I love that image and now I think of it whenever I look at a picture of this painting.

Sailing the Crystal Sea

Oil on cradled panel, 14 x 11 in.
I found this slice of butternut squash at the Farmer's Market. I liked the U-shape which reminded me of an old-fashioned ship sailing through an imaginary landscape. I love the poem "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" by Eugene Fields which tells the tale of three fishermen who sailed off in a wooden shoe on a river of crystal light into the sea of dew, and that's what inspired the title.
