Ten years ago, the studies sold for $75 each. Today the price is US $100 plus $8 shipping. It'll take about a week for the study to dry so it can be mailed and will probably be another ten days to reach you. It has much further to travel now!
Male Cardinal #318
7" x 5" oil study on gessoed board, unframed
US$ 100 plus $8 Shipping
This oil is reminiscent of some of my watercolors from long ago, painted specifically for Mountain Trails Gallery in Sedona, Arizona. After all, it is hummingbird season in Sedona! Hummingbirds are found only in the 'New World'. I must admit - I do miss them in New Zealand. Part of the reason for my annual trip back to the U.S. is for a hummingbird fix. The bird is this painting is a male Broad-tailed Hummingbird.
12" x 9" oil on panel
Available at Mountain Trails Gallery, Sedona, Arizona, USA
This is a 15" x 15" oil on panel. At this point, I've just scrubbed in the value and color with some parts a bit more finished. I may leave some of the scrubbed in areas or I might work on these areas a bit more. Ditto with the river - not sure if I'll leave it this value or perhaps darken it a bit and pick up the yellow of the sunset. This is work-in-progress. I'll lean it up against the wall for a few days and take a quick look at it when I walk past. After a while, I'll know if there are awkward shapes or values that bother me.
