I found this little pot (dhallah) treasure hunting in Connecticut. It was love at first sight. I keep painting it with different color schemes. In this painting, it takes a back seat to pomegranates, which I've loved since I was a very strange child. 12" x 12" Oil on Canvas. $700
I just love this little alla prima, the latest to my site. The paint is still wet, as is my appetite for more persimmons. Oil on linen, 8"x10", $675
Mud season here in Maine is the worst. Winter's glowing light, snow and ice are all gone. All looks dead. However, there are sure to be mandarins in the grocery store. I placed them with this little blue glazed pot right in front of another set up and voila. 8"x10" Oil on linen. $675
True confession, this was an excellent bottle of wine, enjoyed in late fall with a hearty meal. And husk cherries, cerise de terre, are a fall fixture in my garden and kitchen. I love the ephemeral papery delicacy against the longevity of vintage wine. Oil on cradled panel, 6"x6", $600.
I love persimmons. Beautiful on the tree and on the table, in my hand and in a painting. To all my senses. Oil on cradled board, 6"x6". $600.
Old spools of thread are so attractive to me. The colors, the shapes, the stories that follow them like the scent of of an old attic. Who chose this color and for what? A party, a child, a doll's dress, a graduation? Home sewing is fading to distant memories, mostly of the older women fixing a button or a hem without notice so deep was their muscle memory. Oil on panel, 6"x6", $600
For those who don't have an instant recognition of this item, it is a pin cushion. Far more lovely and delicate than anything I could sew, I never wanted to mar them with pin holes. Oil on cradled panel, 6"x6". $475
My family mocks me but it's not deterrent. I can't get enough of vintage Christmas ornaments. A little nostalgia, but also for me about that inner small child standing in dumbstruck awe of unexpected beauty. Oil on board, 4"x6". $400
