Echinacea Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Palette Knife Art, Textured Art, 6x8" SOLD

One of my favorite flowers to paint, are coneflowers (echinacea).  I think they have so much personality.

SOLD

This time, I used a palette knife, to add interest and dimension.



I always try to keep a black frame around, as I think they really help the painting to pop!

Floral Still Life, Hydrangea Painting, Second Bloom, Daily Painting, SOLD

Last winter, I spent three months on the east coast of Florida.  It involved many walks on the beach, and my painting was full of seagulls, and seascapes.

I also painted this hydrangea still life.  I hope you like it.

SOLD

It is quite different for me.  I usually do not paint with such high values only, but it had it's charm and sold quickly.

Weeds Can Be Beautiful,Thistle Still Life Study, Daily Painter, Small Oil Painting, SOLD

This small oil painting is a tribute to thistles. The lowly thistle, thought to be a weed, in my eyes, a brilliant floral beauty.

SOLD

 I photographed this thistle while taking a summer walk in the valley. Armed with my image, I painted it in oil, with lots of texture to suggest the spikey flower. Some of the texture comes from my use of the palette knife, and some of it was applied direct to the canvas. The sides of the canvas are finished, allowing it to be hung with or without a frame.



This is a picture of me, doing my favorite thing!




Thank you for viewing my art today.

Still Life Painting, Daily Painting, Small oil Painting,

Every once in awhile, I like to review my painting files.  I think it is extremely helpful, to see how your painting style has changed over the years.

SOLD

SOLD

When I started painting, I did lots of still life.  These two have encouraged me, to get back in the still life mode, doing set-ups in my studio.

Sometimes we just need to shake things up a little.   I think I am there, now.  Let's get a little new inspiration!
