Small Floral Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 8x10" Pink Floral Oil Painting, Palette Knife

I wanted to create a soft, soothing floral still life. Painted on .75" deep canvas, with painted sides. Finished with a light spray of varnish to enhance and protect the colors.

I worked with both brush and palette knife, but 90% of it is the knife.


Hope you enjoy it!

Flower Still Life, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil on Panel, Palette Knife Painting

Today I painted a flower.

Purchase Here

I have been struggling with my painting, for a full year now.  I have never been able to establish a routine in the studio, since we packed our bags, and moved to the mountains.  I thought I was over painting.  I found no joy in it.  In fact, everything I struggled to paint, seemed more like a duty and I found it frustrating.

But now, we have been back at the beach for three months.  It took awhile. First the holidays got in the way, but after the first of the year, I started to regain my love of spending my days in the studio. 

Maybe it was the inspiration of the long walks on the beach, or maybe  it was being back with my art buddies again.  Whatever..........I am thrilled and anxious to smear paint across canvas again!



It is such a JOY!!!

Turquoise Wave, Original Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 14x18" Oil on Canvas SOLD

It's almost time for us to return to the mountains, so I am trying to get in as many walks on the beach, while we are still here in Florida.  I always take my phone and always take many photos on these walks.

SOLD

I'm REALLY going to miss those walks!!

Many artists paint seascapes from life, but, it always blows my brain!  All those waves coming in, color changes......etc.  How do they do it?  It is more than I can comprehend!

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Playing with Paint, Abstract Oil Painting, 8x8x3" Original Oil, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting SOLD

Today is gray, foggy and damp, so I decided to post the most fun painting I could find.


SOLD




You know how I love color and texture and this little painting has it all.

I painted it on a 8x8x3" canvas, so even the shape is unique.  It's chunky and cute and it resides on a bookshelf , where it brightens the whole room.  I cannot help but smile each time I look at it.

The canvas was a mistake.  I did not realize how deep it was when I ordered it.  What could I possibly do with it?  Well, for this painting, I think it is perfect!

Have a fantastic day!

Floral Still Life Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Pink Glory", 6x8" Oil on Panel

I have been doing a few palette knife paintings, recently.

Purchase Here
I think, I could be a much better artist, if I were to limit my techniques and subject matter to one type, but I also think that would be rather boring!

Variety of the spice of life......right?

I am fortunate and do not have to financially support myself, with my art, so I can indulge myself, in this way.  Others are not.  Still others do not have the desire to jump around, but are focused totally on one technique or subject.

Is there a right or wrong?

Thanks for viewing my art today.
