Painting Wildlife, Grey Squirrel Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, SOLD

Have you ever tried to photograph wildlife?  I have, and consider it an exercise in frustration.  Many blurred images later, my friend and photographer, Ted Fuhrer, offered me the use of his images.  Thanks so much, Ted.

This little guy looks very inquisitive and ready to bolt at the least movement.

  I enjoyed experimenting with painting his fur and directing the viewer's eye.  The animal is much the same color as the background in this scene.

 I put it in one of my black frames.  They seem to work perfectly for just about any painting.

Happy day to you!

Palette Knife Painting, Sunflower Art, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Textured Wall Art, 11x14x1.5" Oil on Canvas

Here in Appalachia, we have an over abundance, of sunflowers, and old weathered barns.  I happen to love them both.

Like so many other places, we are having a long summer, with a warmer than usual fall; resulting in a longer growing season.  But all good things come to an end, and this is "The Last Sunflower of Summer"

I was pleased with the end results, of this painting.  I hope you like it too!

Thanks for viewing!

Rustic Mountain Landscape, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Palette Knife Landscape, 6x8" Oil on Panel

A view of one of the more popular sites on the Blue Ridge Parkway......Water Rock Knob.

Purchase Here

This is an extremely textured artwork.  I enjoy texture in some of my work, and I may have gotten a little carried away, on this piece.  Or maybe not!  I like it and hopefully someone else will too.

Art is such a personal decision.  There are many rules to learn, as a student artist, but, after you learn the rules, you also learn when you can bend them.

Gone to the Dogs, Dog Paintings, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting,

My niece Kayla, asked me to paint a small portrait of her dog.  It reminded me of all the dog portraits I did, when I first started painting.

 People have such an emotional connection with their pets.

  I  enjoy the personality that show in pictures of dogs and I strive to capture that quality in my paintings.

Some of my favorites...

Have a happy day!

I wanted to practice painting flowers, and found a reference in my files.

Purchase here

Trying hard to put into practice the techniques Elio Camacho tries to push into my head.  Brushwork, color relations, composition, the bride!  Not sure if I was successful, but, there is always tomorrow!

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Birthday Flowers!!

Way back in December, my son and his wife sent me some beautiful flowers for my birthday.  The first thing I did was photograph them.  Then I forgot about the photos!

I finally found them last week, and decided to try my hand at one.  I am very intimidated  by flowers.  They seem so complex and I rarely meet that sweet spot between too little or too much detail.  I am not so sure about this one, but I do like the colors.

Try, try and try again!

Sweet Success! A daily painter makes it into the movies.

Today is a special day for me!

It's the premiere opening of the new 
                                         Joaquin Phoenix - Robert DeNiro movie, "Joker".

Warner Brother's purchased this painting from me, as set design, several months ago.  They were filming in Brooklyn, at the time, and I have been waiting to see it released.

They chose this small (8x10") still life painting.  I envision that it will be hanging on the wall of some dark and dreary brownstone, decorated in the style of your great grandmother.

Thanks for viewing my blog today!

A Really Big Giclee A Happy Customer, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Pelican Print

Clients often ask, if the texture shows on a giclee print.  

This client, was kind enough to send me an image, which answers that question.

She is so happy, with her 36x48" framed giclee, which we shipped direct to her Florida  condo.

Ocracoke Island Landscape, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil on canvas

Earlier this year, we spent a few days on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  Ocracoke Island was my favorite place.....a step back in time.

This little painting is a typical view on the cedar covered island.

Unfortunately, this beautiful island, and it's rugged residents, took a big hit from Hurricane Dorian, earlier this month.  Hopefully, all are safe and repairs are being made.

Thanks for viewing!
