6"x6" oil on primed masonite.

This one is sold, however, I am taking special orders at no additional commission charge, on this painting only. If you feel you would like to purchase one similar to this let me know at:  malottmadhouse@hotmail.com

I normally charge extra for commissioned pieces but for Christmas I will be charging my regular price for these impressionistic Nativity paintings. They are signed and dated on the back and being original, they will vary.

Horses Autumn Field Impressionism Daily Painting Heidi Malott



sold
"Autumn Grazing"
2013
6x6" oil on primed masonite

The horses seemed quite content in the pasture on this crisp autumn afterrnoon.  I enjoyed painting the gray/blue greens with the warm hues of the dry grasses.

I was surprised when I downloaded this, that I don't have many horse paintings posted.  There are plenty of chickens and cows but horses, not so much, yet...

Autumn Fall Colors Impressionist Oil Painting Heidi Malott



sold
"Early November"
2013
6"x6" oil on primed masonite board

Hey, I made it into the studio today.  Had a busy weekend of yard cleanup.  So many leaves, acorns and walnuts to move.  I am always a little sad to put the garden to bed for the long winter.  First summer in a long time that we didn't get many tomatoes.  Good thing I still have a few jars canned up from last season.

Oh well, back to today's post.  I am always so inspired to paint during autumn.  The colors are amazing.  I feel a bit out of practice, but it felt so good to pick up those brushes.  One thing about all those glorious fall colors, it is easy to get overwhelmed and go all out with bright hues everwhere.  I love the challenge of holding back in areas, letting toned down color prop up those high notes.  Let them sing.

Happy Day!
