I’ve been busy working on an oil painting of the Seattle skyline. This piece is my donation to the Boys and Girls Club of Spokane for their annual fund raising gala in February. It’s always a challenge for me to paint skylines because my handwriting naturally slants to the left. I find my buildings do the same. Very weird!
I’m using a modified Zorn palette as the skyline is depicting sunset with overhead clouds.
Here’s an overall of the work in progress:
I’m hoping there will be a former Seattle resident in the audience and that this piece will bring in a good size donation for this wonderful entity. 😊👍🏻
I love decorating for the fall and I think my miniature oil paintings make great subjects for themes to decorate with. This 4″x4″ oil on canvas titled “Leaves on the Driveway” works well with fall leaves and corn cobs.
Here’s a closer view of this little painting:
It was painted entirely with a palette knife and has great texture and lots of juicy color! What’s your favorite way to decorate for fall? Do you use fine art as part of your decor? Hit me with some comments and lets strike up a convo!
“Pink Roses”, framed in a custom walnut stained frame is an 8″x10″ oil on canvas. Painted in warm tones, which evokes a sense of romance from yesteryear.
These beautiful pink roses are the last for this year. The rose petals are a delicate pink and bloom in groups that almost look like a bouquet from the flower shop. It’s my favorite rose-bush! Do you love roses as much as I do? What’s your favorite flower?
“Pink Roses” original oil painting will soon be available in the shop.
This one of a kind floral painting would make a
beautiful gift for that special someone this Christmas!
Tis the season for pumpkins! I love decorating the house for fall. The front door has a new fall wreath and now I’m on the hunt for some great big pumpkins! In the mean time, here’s a few bitty pumpkins, painted in oil on 6″x6″ panel.
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” 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. 🙂
This week has been a busy one with varnishing and framing paintings. This little Blue Morning Glory painting is one of my favorites.
It looks fabulous in its walnut toned frame!
