Hydrangea Painting, Blue Floral Painting, Still Life Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Palette Knife Painting, SOLD

SOLD


I picked these hydrangea from my garden and was compelled to paint them.  Hydrangea are probably my very favorite flowers and I love the summer months when my home is surrounded with their massive blooms.



I wanted to keep the painting as simple as the pitcher and mug.



For me, keeping it simple usually means "palette knife".

I have a big sale going on my Etsy site , with 40% off original oil paintings.  Don't miss this opportunity to have an original oil painting in your home, at a fabulous price!

This original painting is sold, but it can be ordered as a giclee print on canvas, paper or wood.

Enjoy your day!

Cow Oil Painting, Cow Portrait, Daily Painting, Palette Knife Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14" Oil on Linen, SOLD

A client wanted a cow painting, for licensing purposes.  I usually do daily painting of still life or landscape, but I have to admit I enjoyed both the horse, they originally chose,  and this cow painting.


Purchase here
250 + shipping

I painted on Senso linen canvas.  I had a pad of the linen around for several years but didn't really know what to do with it.  I found it had a different texture than the cotton canvas I usually paint on, but once I got into the painting, it was fine.

My next problem was what to do with this unstretched painting.  After surveying several friends, I mounted it on a cradled wood panel.  I was told the perfect glue to use is YES GLUE available at craft stores.  I had some in my stash and I have to say it worked like a charm.  Then I trimmed the edges with a exacto knife and it turned out perfectly.  Now I can use the rest of my Senso linen canvas with no fear!

So, today I stretched my limits, both with the Senso canvas and the cow painting, and luckily both worked out for me!

This is a re-post, and the cow has been sold.  However, if you are interested, giclee prints are available on canvas and wood planks, in the size of your choice.  Contact me for pricing.

Bamboo Oil Painting, Tree Landscape, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" oil on panel, SOLD

As a child living in rural Ohio, my grandmother would visit from Florida, bringing along an exotic collection of seashells and postcards. There was always one or two postcards from McKee Gardens in Vero Beach. She  awakened a deep desire in me.....to live in this strange and beautiful tropical land.


SOLD

Recently I made my first trip to McGee Gardens, a magical place filled with  tropical flora and  giant water lily pads.

I was fascinated with the bamboo stands, so abstract in their shapes.



It's always nice when a childhood dream comes true............Thank you Grandma.

Underwater wonderland, Coral Reel Seascape, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Palette Knife Painting, SOLD

I am still reliving my recent trip to Key Largo in my paintings.  I think this is number five or six in the series I call "Coral Reef".

SOLD
 While in Key Largo we went out seven miles to the coral reef in a glass bottom boat.  I got really sea sick when they powered down over the reef and did not enjoy it as much as I would have liked to.

detail
 But, I kept my eyes on the reef as much as I could, and took some photos.  I did love the trip out and the trip back.  I could not take my eyes off the stunning aqua and blue waters.

detail
These paintings are more impressions than actual scenes.




Thanks for viewing my art today!

Deep Purple Falls, Small Oil Painting, Fantasy Landscape, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil on Panel SOLD

Purchase here

I've got a thing for purples, lavenders, blues, blah, blah, blah.


detail
I was in the Land O' Trees, better known as western North Carolina, when I painted this.  In the summertime, I get green overload here.  Green mountains, green grass, green leaves.  You cannot escape green.   Maybe that is why doing a purple and blue landscape appealed to me.  More to come!

Lamb Oil Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Palette Knife Art,


This is one of my earlier paintings, of a small lamb, walking a Scottish moor.  

I painted with palette knife and brush and tried to get lots of texture in it.  I liked the rugged  feel.  I have never been on the moors, but I think they would feel rugged and cold and windy.



I painted a ram a few months ago, which I like to think is this lamb's daddy.  You can view it here

Have a wonderful week!
