Reworked this one a bit

Hi there, this painting is oil on a 8" x 10" canvas. I painted this one from a set up, I love painting from life. I looked at it for a while and found it kind of boring so went back in and added color and softened things up. I'm liking it now. 

Thanks for visiting me on this cold winter day.

Small animal paintings

Hello hello! This little duck is painted in oils in a 4" x 4" stretched canvas and the cow is also oils on a 5" x 7" panel.  My husband says animals are your thing, I do enjoy painting them but as you can tell I love to paint just everything. 

More snow here last night, I'm so ready for spring. I have places to go and things to do! Hehe

I hope the snow isn't interfering in your life too much, assuming it's winter where you are. 

See you soon

Trying new things

Hi Friends, sorry I haven't been posting as often but I am busy painting.  I started this still life a few weeks ago, it's oil in a 11" x 14" canvas.  It was fine, just fine.  Sometimes I think it isn't enough to to just paint well you need to be a bit different.  Anyway I went back into this adding soft color over the whole painting and then going back and tweaking a few areas. 

I have several things coming up.  This Thursday I am in a show called " Tiny" , I painted three 4" x 4" paintings for the show and they all were accepted.  I just entered two other shows and the whole month of March my Tuesday group The Brush & Palette Painters will have a show at the Cincinnati Womens Art Club. 

Thank you for visiting

Pets

I enjoy painting animals and I find them easier to paint than some things with their definite blocks of color.  I say that but that doesn't mean it's easy. I find that people really enjoy viewing paintings of animals too.  This beautiful cat belongs to our co-op owner, actually this is one of two cats that live at the co-op.  The dog belongs to a man I attended school with, he posted it on Facebook and I loved the image and he gave me permission to paint it.  The cat is 8" x 8" and I'll be taking it along to sell at the Northminster Art Fair next Saturday.  The dog is wet but it's available if you're interested. It is 8" x 10" and both are oil. 

So good of you to come by

Flowers flowers flowers

Hi! I am a flower painting fool lately. Lol. This one is oil on a 10" x 20" stretched gallery canvas.  

Also I am framing and getting ready for the Northminster Fine Art Show on February 7th on Compton Rd. This is a wonderful juried show and I feel honored to be included.  I paint a lot of small 4" x 4"'s for the show, everyone has room for a little painting, right? The second photo I have posted shows a few of those little paintings framed.

Thanks for visiting me!

New camera

Hi everyone and happy new year! I purchased a new camera, another Canon Powershot but I wore out my other one.  It came today and I shot this photo, thinking I'm lovin it!  This is oil on a 6" x 8" canvas. Painting some smaller ones for an upcoming show in February. 
Back on EBay, check out the paintings I added.  Haven't quite figured out how to add a link from my iPad,  you can enter "Pask" in the search bar.

Good to see you!

Merry Christmas

Hi Friends, this is the painting I used for my Christmas cards this year.  I enjoy painting the image I use for my cards each year.  Because I won't be mailing one to all of you I wanted to share it on here
and wish you all a very Merry Christmas.  Have a safe holiday and I'll be back soon.
