Zinnia Pot


Zinnia Pot


Here's my latest, straight from the easel, called Zinnia Pot. Calls back lots of memories for me, when we used to have zinnias in our garden up in Barrington, Illinois. They are one of my favorites because they come in almost every color of the rainbow. So cheerful and easy to grow! Yellow and pink are, of course, my favorites. This is an oil painting on 1.5" Gallery wrap 10"x10" canvas. Great for a bedroom, kitchen, sunroom, or any place that needs a dash of happy, mixed-bouquet, spring and summer colors! $100.00 with free shipping in the U.S.

Blue Anemone Bouquet


Blue Anemone Bouquet

SOLD


Here is a 12" x 12" oil painting on 1.5" cradled canvas panel, Blue Anemone Bouquet, that I finished last night. Sides of canvas are painted a coordinating neutral color.

So charming in a bouquet of mixed blues and purples like this one! $145.00 with free shipping to anywhere in the U.S.

Angel Spice Cattleya Orchid Watercolor



















Angel Spice Cattleya 

Here is an 8"x 8" watercolor, created with professional grade paints, on a cradled Aquabord panel that  I finished yesterday.  I got a chance to use one of my favorite colors, quinacridone coral, as well as lots of opera pink and quinacridone magenta.  An ethereal yet spicy-colored orchid, to warm up the coldest day!  This is a varnished water color, which means it has been protected with varnish and will not need a frame.  The cradled panel is 2" deep with varnished wood sides and is wired and ready to hang, or to display on a table or shelf.  Available for $65.00 with free shipping.  Simply e-mail me at Phyllis.Bleau@gmail.com

Gossipers




Here is my latest orchid watercolor, a crop of lovely laeliocattleyas. Done on 300# Arches Cold Press Watercolor paper in 15x22 format. I call them Gossipers because they remind of a group of ladies sharing the latest tidbits of news. Such pretty colors, and such fun to paint. My first use of a really dark background. I think I'll be using this style in future paintings for the drama! The original is for sale, $300.00 matted, unframed.

Ballerinas

SOLD

Here is a 5x7 inch watercolor on 140# watercolor paper that I did when I was at Swamp Fest the beginning of this month. It was fun to try out my travel set of watercolors by Winsor and Newton, which I hadn't had a chance to use for a while. Great to be outdoors in the Florida "winter" sunshine in the beautiful surroundings of Weeki Wachee, where the mermaids play! This painting is available for $49.00, matted and sent with free shipping. Your comments are always appreciated!
