Wildlife Painting, Flying Pelican, Daily Painting, 16x20x1.5" Oil Painting

I don't paint a lot of larger pieces, because storage is such a problem.  Lately, I have had the urge to paint larger.  This pelican seemed like the perfect subject.

I was lucky to get this image of a pelican, skimming over the ocean waves from my cousin.  Thanks for sharing with me, Susan.

Pear and Plum Still Life, Palette Knife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil on canvas panel, sold

Have not done a still life, or a palette knife painting for a while, so this one was in my comfort zone.

SOLD

I naturally tend to lean towards cool colors, so I had fun working all my favorite color relationships.



This scene is a repaint, from years ago.  I couldn't find the original photograph, but I did have a photo of the first painting, so I used that as a guide.  The first painting was done with a brush, which is why I decided to mix it up a little, by using a palette knife this time around.

Hope you enjoy it!

Acrylic Abstract Pouring, Daily Painting, Gicee Print on Canvas

I am still enjoying my experiments with acrylic pourings.  It is either the most fascinating or the most frustrating activity ever!




I am quite pleased with the color on this one and also with the movement and cell formation.

We used to say, watching paint dry was too boring, but I have a hard time pulling myself away these days.  Manipulating the paint, by moving the support is always interesting, even more so when you return an hour later and find a whole new painting.

If you are interested in this process, I suggest going to You Tube, where you will find  a ton of  tutorial videos.

I am offering this, as well as others, as giclee prints on canvas, in numerous sizes, on my Etsy site.

Thanks for stopping by today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER SHELLY....and her beautiful daughter, Courtney!!

Landscape Painting, Woodland Cottage, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil Painting

This little cottage is on my morning walking route in North Carolina.  I am also attracted to the patterns of light on this little house, snuggled up to the trees.

purchase here

 The atmosphere is isolated woodlands, but in fact, this is a law office on Main Street in the town of Waynesville, NC.




I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Small Abstract Painting, Fluid Art, Acrylic Pouring, Daily Painting,

I have been continuing to research and experiment with fluid art, and finally I feel I have made a little progress.

Purchase here
It is fascinating to see what appears as the paints and hues mingle, and frustrating because you can do the exact same technique twice and get two completely different results.

I was very happy with this one, that appears to be hundreds of little bubbles, but is actually hundreds of little cells.



I love how they look on household products!  These are from Kessinhouse.com.

Is this year flying by or what??
