Creating an oil painting takes many steps and a lot of editing before it is ready for the market. Each layer must be fully dry before a new layer is added, otherwise cracking of the painting can occur. Once a painting is finished, it takes several months to dry before the varnish is added. After the varnish is fully dry, a painting is framed unless it has been painted on a gallery wrapped box canvas. Gallery wrapped box canvas paintings are meant to be displayed without a frame. You can see why the purchase of an oil painting is an investment.
You can shop for my original oil paintings by clicking the Paintings tab in the header. I look forward to having you as one of my many collectors!
“Skiffs on the Dock” is a 6″x6″ oil painting on gallery wrapped canvas. I enjoy painting small works because they are so portable. Small paintings can be used to decorate with the seasons and easily stored or moved around. You can display collections of small works with fine collectibles in an art niche, in a bookcase or on an office credenza.
“Skiffs on the Dock” is now available in my store. If you or someone you know loves small nautical works of art, won’t you share this post? Mother’s Day and Father’s Day will be here soon. Why not give a gift that lasts a lifetime?
“Pears” is painted on 8″x8″x2″ gallery wrapped canvas, and depicts three beautiful pears just as they are beginning to ripen. I find the shape of pears to be intriguing and feminine. There are so many subtle colors in a pear and the taste is the best part! How do you like your pears? Chocolate drizzled, or with whipped cream? Ice cream covered or poached in a wine sauce? I like them just as they are. 🙂

We’re at the height of summer and flowers blooming in all their glory! These are Fuchsias, some of my favorite flowers! They bloom all summer and the hummingbirds love them. What Flower is at the top of your faves list?
This past weekend, I transplanted my Morning Glory seedlings into hanging baskets. I saw an idea on Pinterest to grow Morning Glories in hanging baskets and let the vines cascade down. It makes a stunning display of color! Last year I grew the flowers on a trellis in the garden but they were too close to the fence and the deer ate the vines, leaving me with nothing! This year I’m outsmarting them and growing my favorite blue flowers hanging from our top decks, 20′ in the air! Take that deer!
Here’s a few of my favorite Morning Glory paintings:
I’m looking forward to creating some more Morning Glory floral paintings this year! And, if you’re on Pinterest follow me and of course I’ll follow back!
Sunsets sometimes remind me of candy! I love it when the lake mirrors those candy colors in the clouds. This painting may be tiny but it packs a lot of vibrant color.
