Still life- crock & apples

Hi there, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am thankful for so many things and among them are the people that visit my blog. Blogging has been a wonderful addition to my life.

I painted this last week from a set up, I received this crock as a birthday present and had to paint it. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas.

I heard on the Christmas card competition, I was told that the representative loved my painting but didn't choose it because it was a church. I knew it wasn't "politically correct" but it was the image I wanted to paint. So I'm not too disappointed, it will be my Christmas card.

Bright Sunny Day

Hi there, You know how every now and then when you complete a painting you think "I like this"? Well, I like this, lol. I like the colors in the house and the impressionistic tree behind the house, this one has the burnt sienna toned canvas again. This is oil on a 8 X 10 stretched canvas, I may give this another try on a larger canvas. Hope you like it too. Have a great day!

Christmas card contest

Hi there, I painted this for a competition, a local representative will be choosing a painting to be his Christmas card for this year. It has to be something from Warren Co. Ohio and a winter scene. I painted this very old church here in town and if they don't choose it I will use it for my card. There is a first, second and third place prize and if they choose yours you lose all rights to reproduce it. This church has a lot of history for my family, I grew up attending there, was married there and my father's funeral was there. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. Saturday night is the opening at the gallery here in town, I have one piece in the show. I'm excited just to have a piece hanging there. The show will hang until January.

My daughter's birthday gift

My grandson started school this year and I was there taking photos on his first day. I painted this triptych for my daughter depicting Michael's first day. I found the perfect frame to hold the three 5 X 7 paintings. The first little painting they were holding hands as the bus approached, the second she was helping him onto the bus and the last was when he came home in the afternoon. Her birthday was last Friday and I surprised her with this. This is my sweet Brandy holding the painting and here is a photo of the painting. Sorry there is a bit of a glare on the painting.

Gone Fishin'

Hello, I painted this a few days ago, taken from a photo I took while walking in the park. I combined his image with a photo I had taken someplace else. In the original photo of him he was walking along a concrete path and I thought the new surroundings had a better feel. A sweet elderly gentleman, he had his rod, tackle box and I loved the cuffed jeans. This is oil on a 8 X 10 stretched canvas. Have a great weekend!

Country Living

Hi, This is another painting that I toned the canvas with burnt sienna and allowed a lot of it to show through. I took this photo while traveling some of the rural roads in this area. My husband is normally driving and I yell things at him like "STOP" or "SLOW DOWN" or "BACK UP A BIT". He is so easy going, some of the things you have to put up with when you live with an artist, lol. This is oil on a 8 X 10 stretched canvas. See you soon

Oh by the way, I did get one piece into that juried show I mentioned on my last post, woo hoo.

Edouard Manet

Hi, I painted this looking at a painting by Edouard Manet titled Berthe Morisot. I brought it up on my monitor and it isn't an exact reproduction just my take on it. I have always loved this painting. I really like her interesting hat. When you google for the image one can look very different from the other as far as the amount of detail you see and the color in the painting. This is oil on a 8 X 10 stretched canvas. I submitted two paintings at a gallery here in town. It is a juried show and if I get accepted it will hang until the beginning of January. I'll let you know, keeping my fingers crossed. See you soon
