“Leaves”

Here’s another in the “Leaves” 4×4 series. Can you tell I love saturated colors?

This one was done with a brush. I like using palette knives but love the finer look that can be achieved with brushes. Definitely more exploration with knives will be done this year!

“Fly Fishing on the North Fork of the Coeur d’Alene River”

Wow that’s a long tittle! But that’s where this painting was originated so that has to be the title. Right? This one is nearly ready for varnishing, which is the best part because it unifies all the colors and makes them pop!

Fly Fishing

“Fly Fishing on the North Fork of the Coeur d’Alene River” is done in oil and painted on panel. It will be framed in black with a gold liner. It’s the second of a new series called “Reflections”.

Oil Painters of America Summer Online Showcase

Oil Painters of America summer online showcase

The Summer Online Showcase for the Oil Painters of America juried show has been judged. My two entries are on the third line down, the last two images on the far right. I entered my “Gravy Boat” and “Eggs”” still life paintings. My entries didn’t place but I’m pleased that I was a participant. You can view all the entries HERE. There are so many talented artists that it must have been very hard for the judge to make the winning choices! Nice work everyone! Now I need to figure out which paintings to enter in the fall showcase. Any suggestions?

A little color glazing

Recently I painted a little anchor in a monotone color palette. I painted two, showing different views, but something was off. I set them aside and looked at them for over a month trying to figure out what I didn’t like. Then the other day I came up with a solution! You can watch what I did in this short video:

“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!

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

Teapot

New in the store! “Teapot” is a 6″x6″ original oil on panel painting.

I used a limited palette of whites and greys to portray the subject.

The black frame with silver liner, makes a very dramatic statement!
