"Plum Stack"

click to bid
I love painting plums. I love their blueish tint they have until it is rubbed off.

I have a group show coming up and this is a piece for it. This painting is a bit larger (12"x11") than I have done in a while, but it was a lot of fun. The crazy thing is this painting only took me slightly longer than my little ones. I can't think of a title for this one (working is not the title), any suggestions?

"Tomato Distortion" - SOLD

I really love how glass distorts stuff behind it. This painting was going to go in a different direction, and then I just placed this bottle in front, and whammo, I had to leave it. I love distortion...did I say that already?
Well folks, in an effort to sell some of the paintings on my eBay store, I have marked all store paintings as free shipping (not including the regular auction paintings). I think I will leave them with the free shipping for one week. Thank you all!

"Lookin' Up"

I know that fraud has been around for a while, but someone just tried to scam me. I had a person claim to be interested in a painting, and wanted to send me a check for it. She also told me stories of how she was hospitalized and after a close call with a miscarriage, in an effort to make me sympathize with her. Similar stories can be found here and here. In fact if you ever think you are being scammed just highlight parts of the email and do a google search, these guys often use the exact same lines in their emails. She finally sent me a check for $2000. I then realized it was a scam and stopped communication with them. If I had put the check in the bank, they would have later told me they had paid me too much and would like me to pay them back the difference. They would have got my money, and soon after the check I received from them would have bounced.

These guys are bad news. So, those of you who sale your work, be careful. ;)

I actually finished this one late last night. I wiped down the first one and then after a bit of rearranging, and adding, I finally got this one done well past bedtime. And, although I am tired today I think this one turned out okay. : )

I saw some great paintings over my trip. One artist (I don't remember the name) used a lot of black, and it got me excited to try this painting.

I will be out of town for a few days. My wife and I are celebrating 10 years together. The congratulations definitely goes to her for putting up with me for so long. : )

Love you Monica!
