"Red Hot Summertime"

"Red Hot Summertime"
Soft Pastel on Sandpaper
9" x 12"
Red...I mean really RED...don't you love it? I was thumbing through images of some of my paintings recently, and realized that I rarely use red. These Amaryllis were just beginning to bloom out in the planters on the patio at Spanish Village Art Center, and I figured they were the perfect subject for my red adventure. They are also perfect for the introduction of my new gold plein air style frames. You can click to my blog and see this painting in one of those new frames along the right hand column. Red/gold...what's not to love?

Offered framed in wide gold plein air style frame with UV/non-glare museum glass. Ready to hang and enjoy. Buy it here and have it shipped, or arrange for pick up at my studio and save the shipping. $235 + $30 to ship anywhere in the continental US or Canada.
