Li’l Pumpkins

Don’t you just love the change of seasons? Fall is on the way as summer slowly winds down. The temps are getting cooler and there’s a chill in the morning. I even see trees beginning to change color! Fall is my favorite time of year. Here’s a little painting to set the tone. A 6″x6″ oil on panel ~

“Pears” original oil paining on canvas

Pears oil painting

“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?

A little plein air painting

This past weekend we did a two day camping trip. I took the medium pochade box and found a perfect spot next to a whitewater creek in which to paint. The temps were a bit on the cold side since we were 3200+ft. in elevation. There was still snow on some of the shadow side of the roads. But all in all it was a great weekend!

Making a preliminary sketch of my scene.

This is the scene I used for my 8×10 oil painting.





I was able to lay in all the base colors and will bring up the light values in the studio. Will share the finished piece soon!

“Please Pass the Gravy!”

Gravy Boat oil painting

“Gravy Boat” original oil on panel, reminds us of family dinners,

when someone always says, “Please pass the gravy!”

I know, because I’m one of those folks who love gravy!

Please note: The Tamarack Mountain Studio watermark will not be on your painting.

This is done for online purposes only.

Also, while every effort is made to color correct images, differences in monitors cannot be helped,

and the painting may look slightly different, if not better, in real life.

Spectral highlights from the gloss varnish may show up on-screen as white dots

. This is normal and cannot be helped.

Who Spilled The Cream?

“Who spilled the cream?” is painted in oil on gallery wrapped box canvas. I really enjoy still life work when it’s not plein air season. We’re still having lots of rain, so while I wait for the weather to change I keep busy painting other subjects. Small paintings allow me to paint more, whereas large paintings take a lot of time. The smaller the painting, the more the detail, bringing the viewer into the piece. I like that. 👍🏻😊

The Bridge at Buttonhook Original Oil painting

There’s a lovely old footbridge which connects the mainland to a small island on our lake that’s fun to explore. At the top of the island is a small bench overlooking the bay where one can sit and watch boats come in and out. I love the look of this bridge with its old worn boards and the grasses beneath it. This is a small works oil painting on panel and is available in the shop.
