Orange Poppy Field Original Oil Painting Impressionism Landscapes


Poppies in the Wind
oil on panel
6x6"

Sometimes a painting can really show the joy that went into creating them.  The brushstrokes seem to dance throughout the painting in delight.  My studio windows are open to let the crisp fall air in and I am playing some French Cafe music on Pandora.  A good day for painting.

September Pasture Hereford Cow Autumn Landscape Oil Painting Heidi Malott


"September Pasture"
oil on panel
6x6"

What a great day in early Fall.  The air is crisp and cool.  The sun is sparkling as it filters through the trees.   I have to say I am a little ahem a lot excited about this navy blue color!  Of course it is mixed and not from a tube thank you very much ;) The blue looks especially fabulous next to the faded green grasses.

A Girl and Her Kitten

I have a small ok rather large pile of misfit paintings that I go through every once in a while to either paint over or possibly salvage.  I like the figure looking off into the distance so I decided to give it another chance.

Autumn Joy First Signs of Fall Suburban Landscape Oil Painting




Autumn Joy
oil on panel 
6x6"

I came across this corner the first week in September and even though the days have been warm the nights are getting cooler.  With summer still on my mind I was surprised by the signs of fall.  The blooming sedum and mums and the first dry leaves on the ground.

Nature Walk Turkey Run State Park Evening Sun Oil Painting


Soft Light
oil on panel 
6x6"

The glow of the early evening sun filtering through the trees at one of my favorite places.  I am considering going back into this painting with just a few thick and juicy strokes.  I will keep it in view so I can ponder that thought.  My favorite thing in this painting is the thin ray of light outlining the one side of tree in the middleground.

Seaside Storm Clouds and Seagulls Contemporary Impressionism Heidi Malott


"Seaside Storm Clouds and Seagulls"
oil on panel
6x6"

Sometimes when nothing seems to go right in the studio I come down to two choices.  Either paint through it or put the brush down and walk away.  Last week I had a lot on my plate and must have brought it with me to the easel.  Because nothing seemed to flow.  I guess I tried both choices.  Three scraped paintings later I cleaned up and shut the studio door behind me.

After a few days and a few paintings later I picked up the 3 panels and decided one may be salvageable.   The other two will be painted over.  Today's painting had some features that I liked.  The muted tones and the brushstrokes were not overworked yet.  So this is what I came up with.  It is fresh, clean and has a nice mood to it.  I have quite a little pile of misfits that I leaf through and every once in a while I can save one, but most of these do get painted over.

Turkey Run in July
oil on panel

We were so happy to get a camping trip in this summer at one of our favorite places.  The morning sun was finding its way through the trees and sandstone crevices. 

There are so many details in nature.  I tried to stick with just enough and not too much.

Lavender Fields Contemporary Impressionism Original Oil Painting


"Pleasant Forecast"
oil on panel
6x6"


I had limited time in the studio today.  So I jumped right in drawing out a sketch for this painting and totally skipped a wash of warm color over the panel.  I think it works just fine though.  I actually think this was a happy accident.  Happy Friday Friends!  Hope you have a lovely weekend!  A little continued rest around here with my husband recuperating from knee surgery.

French Lavender Fields Impressionism Original Oil Painting



Lavender Fields 
oil on panel 
6x6"

Keeping it simple, keep it fresh just like the actual feel of this landscape.  That is always my goal.  There are so many times that I will do a painting with enough brushstrokes to do two paintings!  I was glad that I could keep this one to  minimum.

Magnetic Personality Bumble Bee Sunflowers Impressionism Oil Painting


"Magnetic Personality"
oil on panel 
6x6"


Magnetic Personality. oil on panel. 6x6" September in the garden. When studying the light coming through the petals I could figure out the values but getting the color correct was a bit more of a challenge. I think I finally got it right. My husband had reconstructive knee surgery on Monday so we will be spending the next few weeks with him home recuperating. He is not one to sit still but he knows he can't risk re-injury. So our schedules will be different but sometimes life reminds us to slow down whether we want to or not.

Poppy Talk Original Floral Oil Painting


"Poppy Talk"
oil on panel 
6x6"

A floral study.  Poppies remind me of crepe paper.  I focused on how the sun shines on the surface of the flower and through the flower.   I am disappointed in my photograph of this painting for it doesn't show these subtleties.

Tomorrow,  more birds :)  I painted 2 more today, a robin and a tufted titmouse.  I am thrilled to show them to you soon.  A lot of concentration, boy does my head hurt!  I think this will be it for birds for a little while.

This sweet little fella looks dapper doesn't he?  I had so much fun incorporating birds into a large painting i did yesterday that I decided to paint some more. 

If you follow me on instagram (@HeidiMalottart) you may have already seen "Art in the Garden".   I have not painted in this large of a scale in years.  We are talking huge people.   36"x36" oil on canvas.  Well, I have to say, I think the bug has bit me because I had a blast and now I want to do more big paintings! 

"Art in the Garden" will be hanging in my family room, unless someone makes me an offer I can't refuse ;)
