Blue & White Pitcher with Pears 8 X 10 Oil

Hi Everyone, I had a painting lesson today. Even with the holidays upon us I told my teacher if she's open I'm there. I think she's pleased to have me as a student. I never miss and I love to paint. Some of her students only paint when they attend a lesson. I have this theory that the more I paint the sooner I'll become a "great artist", lol. I have my dreams, a good thing I think. Always appreciate your feedback. Have a wonderful safe New Years. Barb SOLD

Ironstone Pitcher 8 X 10 Oil

I starting painting seriously in July of 2006, then last winter I switched from acrylics to oils. I painted this pitcher last winter, not this painting though. It was one of the first things I painted in oils. I just did the painting I'm posting last week and I compared it to the painting I did last winter of it. I feel pleased with my progress, the first one was flat in comparison. Let me know how you think I'm doing, appreciate your feedback. Thanks for stopping by. Barb

My Studio

African Violets 10"X 20" Oil

Here is a photo of my somewhat messy studio, thought I'd post it as I always find it interesting to see other artist's studios. On the easel are three of my newest paintings. I'm also posting a close up of the 10" X 20" African violet painting. I need to invest in a better camera as you can see, my pictures aren't great. Later I'll post the other paintings on the easel when I get better photos of them for you. Appreciate your comments. Thanks, Barb

Sunflowers in blue & white 8X10 oil

This is a still life I did at my Monday morning painting group. More sunflowers, love them. I used a palette knife to lay the paint on heavy on the flowers. I don't take a screen and light with me, too much stuff to carry already. So I just have to do my best with the light. How'd I do? Another subject, I spend too much time on the internet but I'm hooked. I check out dailypainters.com everyday and from there you can check out the artist's blogs and when you bring up their comments you can click on the names there and it just goes on and on. I look at art for hours on end. Appreciate your comments. Thanks so much, Barb

House Commission

HI, Thought I'd post something different, this is a house commission I did this summer. I normally paint in oils but did this in acrylics. I like acrylics for this kind of thing. I photographed right at mid day and had good shadows on the front. Thanks, Barb
