Our house on the historic home tour

One of my neighbors posted the news piece on our recent home tour and I am glad I clicked on the link as most of it was filmed inside our house.  I kept noticing family photos on the piano, Scott giving a talk in the dining room, prints of the mosaic obelisk that I had a hand in designing etc.  Wanna see inside?  Here is the link:

This is really helping to clear out my studio and give a few buyers a great deal on an original oil painting.  A new batch of paintings this week for a penny to start and no reserve.  Last week one person actually got her painting for a penny!  The rest sold for a bit more but most of them still well under $30.

SOLD! The Woods

My husband and I visited a Monestary about an hours drive from home and found a pretty place near a little stream to do some on site paintings.  This little study is on ebay this week for only a penny as a starting bid.  A portion of the proceeds go to charity so bid often and tell your pals.  I have around 8 paintings on auction for a penny this week along with my $50-$300 starting auctions.  None of them have a reserve.

study of French abby

Another demo.  This one was completed in my Thursday adult painting class.  It came from a photo of the guest house where we stayed at an abby in France.  I have sold 2 so far on my auction and have about 6 more to go with possibly more coming as I clean up the studio so check back often.  These are starting at a penny with no reserve and a portion of the proceeds going to charity so please bid often.... plus that makes it more fun for me to see it rise from a penny to dollar to more :-)  In real life the painting is not quite this bright and the ground isn't quite as pink.

SOLD! 8x10 peaches and tea

If you have been following my blog lately you will see that I am putting a lot of paintings on with no reserve this week on Penny Auctions.  What fun!  I need to clear out the studio and have a lot of studies, demos, etc that need to go.  All are originals.  All are oil paintings and I think all are on stretched canvas.  It is a perfect time to snag a nice little oil painting for very little money.  While you are in my Ebay Gallery, feel free to check out my other auctions and my full price paintings.  I am always open for a commission so don't hesitate to ask.  
This little painting was a demonstration for a new student in my adult class in Tulsa.

SOLD ! Here's another one... Penny Auction

A couple of the paintings have bids.  One has several but there are still a few that haven't had a bid yet.  This one is worthy of consideration :-)  A portion of the money generated from these auctions will support the Arts and Humanities artist residency in Hillcrest Hospital's Women's Center, high risk pregnancy unit and Kaiser Rehab.  Some paintings are hooked into St Judes Children's Hospital.

This painting was originally done as a demo for a new painting student.

SOLD! Yet another Penny auction.. Daffodils at the Gilcrease Museum

I have several big shows coming up and one of them involves a home/studio tour in our historic neighborhood in a couple of weeks.  I am trying to get ready and clean the studio in  some sort of presentable fashion.  I am putting a lot of my smaller sketches on ebay this week for only a penny with no reserve.  All of them have a portion of the sale going to charity so I am hoping to 1.  Clear my studio, 2.  give a buyer a great deal on an original painting, 3.  sell at a price that isn't an embarrassment to give to a charity :-).
so here is a link to one of the paintings.  Once you are in the ebay site, you can click to visit my other auctions there.  Right now there are several paintings starting at a penny, and of course, my other auctions and fixed price work which is still quite affordable in my humble opinion.

SOLD ! Another Penny Auction

To Bid or to Visit my Ebay Gallery

One of my students wanted help in bringing a photo of her once young daughter to life in paint.  I always think the best way to teach is by demonstration so this is my little sketch of her daughter.  It is an oil on 8x10 canvas.  The auction is only a penny to start and there is no reserve so this ought to be fun!

There is no reserve for this auction so winning bid, no matter how low, gets the painting.  I actually have several on auction this week, just for fun.  Of course I hope you bid this up a little or perhaps add a full priced painting to the package, even better.... :-)  I also have several teaching videos and 2 books on painting in oil with full color photos and easy to understand language.

2 books on painting in a painterly style

OK it is time to put in a plug for my two books on oil painting.  I have them for sale here on the site or you can always purchase off of my ebay gallery.  One is painting the still life and one is on painting the landscape, en plein aire and in the studio.  I also have several DVDs for instruction in painting.  They were all filmed in my adult classes and so have the feeling of being in a class with others learning, laughing and of course, painting.
