Fruit Still Life Oil Painting, Pineapple and Mango on Glass, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

Purchase here

Today, I am featuring this pineapple and mango  oil painting, in a custom frame.  The piece is framed to 19x23".  The painting shows the fruit sitting on glass, and may be purchased with or without the frame.

Marketing, in my opinion, is one of the hardest parts of being an artist.  I don't know any artists who enjoy this part of the game. I will let you know how this idea works for me.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

MY Painting in the Joker Movie!, Small Oil Paintings, Daily Painting, Still Life Painting,

How lucky can I be?

One of my paintings was recently purchased for set design in a new movie!  The Warner Brothers movie, was filmed in Harlem, Manhattan and the Bronx., and stars Joaquin Phoenix and Robert De Niro.  The title is "Joker".

The painting is one I completed in a workshop a few years back.

I am thrilled, and only hope it doesn't end up on the cutting room floor.

The movie was recently released, and I must say, IT WAS A GIANT HIT!!

Mountain Church Painting, Small Oil Painting, Church Landscape Art, Farmhouse Wall Decor, Daily Painting, SOLD

This is one of the many, small, white, churches, found in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  They all have their own charm, and I love driving around in search of them.


The beauty of the red tree, was an added bonus, to my find, but, this is a charming scene, anytime of the year.  It pays to have your cell phone with you!

Have a great day!

Landscape Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Ocracoke Island, N Carolina

I recently visited the outer banks of North Carolina.  Ocracoke is a small settlement on the southern end of the banks.

The residents are a special group of individuals, who fiercely defend their lifestyle.

Purchase here
 It is a 2 1/2 hour ferry ride, to reach the island, and many of the residents go years without visiting the mainland.

I appreciated their dedication to this small strip of land, 40 miles from the mainland, and am thankful they were willing to share it with me.

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!
