Nothing says spring like Hibiscus flowers! This painting may be small but packs a powerful visual punch. Small works are portable and can find a place anywhere, unlike larger paintings. Small paintings can be used for seasonal decor and then stored easily afterwards. The smaller the painting, the more the detail, bringing the viewer in. (The watermark is not on the painting.)
It’s mushroom season! Warm temps and rain always lead to an abundance of mushrooms! We get a variety of strange mushrooms and this one was growing in the grass in our backyard. It looks like a little umbrella when it first opens. Then it slowly starts to disintegrate and looks like its melting! In a few days it’s gone.
I’ve added this painting to the shop and you can check it out HERE.
Sadly, bitter cold temps have returned and more snow is on the way this week. The mushroom growing season will be on hold for a bit.
Here’s a little calf I recently finished from my works in progress pile. He was painted from a reference photo from another local artist. He will be framed in white and hung in my kitchen near my chicken painting, which I posted about a few weeks ago.
Painted in oils on an 8″x10″ panel. I’m really happy with how he turned out.
Now my works in progress pile is finished! I’ll share the last painting when it dries down a bit. I’m onto new works now; a series called “30 Shades of White”. Stay tuned for more on that soon. 🙂
“In art, intentions have no place; only results. In good art, the results do not have to be explained. As a matter of fact, there is but one kind of art and that is good art. There is no comfortable halfway station; it is either fine, or it is not art.”
John F. Carlson “Carslon’s Guide to Landscape Painting”
