A Slow Studio Sale...

As what often happens with artists, at some point one needs to have a studio sale.  And while I don't really have much of a studio to speak of, there is nothing else to call it.  I could use a little space cleared up for new work that is in progress.  So I am going to slowly go through some of the old stuff and one by one offer them at a bit of a discount.  Sale prices do not include any shipping costs.

The first piece up for sale is one I did in 2006.  I have always found it a bit weird, the tree seems kind of flat to me, but the textured background is nice.

Title:  "The End"
Size:  14" x 18"
Regular price:  $202.00
Sale price:  $151.00
Oil on canvas

This piece will be for sale for the next few weeks only.  Please make any inquiries via email...  cocke.jm@gmail.com

Nap time....

A working title for this little piece, but one that just may stick.  When the ornamental cherry tree outside went dormant this winter a few of the dead leaves clung to it, refusing to drop.  Their orange / brown colour providing some nice contrast against the sky.  A good subject for trying out another palette knife painting.  Now if only the visiting chickadees and juncos didn't move so fast ... I'd like to use one of them as the next painting subject.
