Be Still- Life . New painting SOLD

Completed on July 29th .  I had been thinking about doing a still life for a long time but wasn't feeling it until this past week.  My inspiration  is from many of the beautiful Flemish works of the old masters. I especially loved painting the  vase and lover's eye.  The dimensions are 14x18 on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.

Made some good progress today started at 7 am and wrapping it up for the day.  I decided to take my walk before I started working this morning and it felt pretty good! Now if only I can continue this routine for more than a week.  I am feeling like I will have this done on Thursday/ Friday morning.

The Journey Begins....

Today I began working on a 16x20 wood panel.  I'm drawn to classical design but with bold color and detailed patterns.  I finally watched Tim's Vermeer and not sure what to make of it all. As a result  I've been looking at a lot of Vermeer's work.   The colors alone are just amazing to me. As usually,  I started really getting into my work around 3 pm which on a Friday isn't such a good idea according to my husband anyway.

The Corners Of My Mind- New painting SOLD

Completed on July 12.  SOLD   First off,  I didn't crop the image because I didn't want to chop off any of the edges of the painting.  Usually my son Zachary takes a proper photo but he's moved away so I guess I'll have to learn the right technique  myself.  Anyway, I really wanted to paint  a surreal piece with lots of rich  blues, golds, and sienna.   The colors have lots of depth to them which  is difficult to see in a photograph. I was truly inspired by a lovely background in a renaissance painting for my screen.   Yes, that's a hawk and a morning dove.   This piece is 16x20 painted on a cradled wooden panel with painted sides.  Thanks for stopping by.  For sale on my website
