First Snow Countryside Landscape Original Oil Painting


"Hardiness"
6x6"
oil on panel 
2015 

We have only had one snowfall so far and that was before Thanksgiving.  We have been enjoying the warm weather, especially knowing it wont stick around.  Fortunately I took a few pictures of our first snowfall.  This mighty old tree stood strong in the cold and wind.  I should know this, I think this tree is a sycamore not an oak, but I could be wrong.  It was kind of scrubby, looked like it had a rough beginning many years ago for it had a few restarts shooting up from the ground.

The Magic of Christmas for Child Original Oil Painting


"The Magic of Christmas"
oil on panel 
6x6"
2015

I didn't realize before having children that when you do there is immense joy in seeing Christmas through there eyes.  Such a gift!

We always decorate the tree together and as the kids get older we reminisce over the ornaments we have accumulated over the years.  When we are finally finished finding the perfect spot on the tree  (or at this point any open spot left) we sit back and turn the room lights off and enjoy the sparkling tree remembering years past and of loved ones near and far.
God Bless you and yours this Christmas Season.

Cows Grazing in Clusters Farm Life Original Oil Painting



sold
"Clusters"
2015
oil on panel 
6x6"

The cows were like dots on the field.  I tried to keep their shapes simplified.  I liked how the dappled sunlight through the clouds highlighted their lovely hides.  The greens in the field are a much brighter yellow green than they appear on my laptop.  The colors look right on my cell phone.  To get a good digital image can drive one nuts since this blog is viewed in different ways.  My laptop is old and outdated so hopefully you are seeing a truer version on your electronics.

If you haven't noticed, I added the year 2009 to my Gallery Sale.  Now there are many more paintings available for a special price of $85.  This price includes postage in the U.S.  purchase informaton can be found at the right side of this blog.

What a November it has been.  I don't remember in my lifetime seeing so many planets in line with the moon.  They are a sight to see.  I know that may be offthe subject of this painting but really it is not because it is a part of this November that has been inspiring for what went into this painting.  The weather has been pleasant and the sunsets, unbelievable sunsets almost every night.  They fill my heart with promise, with faith.

I tried to keep ths scene simplified but when drawing/painting horses there is only so much simplifying you can do.  The subject matter has to be readable.  I went round and round a bit to make this simplified and now I am worn out!  However I am not defeated, I would like to try some more.
Have a Great weekend.

The paint on this is still wet so there may be some shiny areas in this picture.

I grew up near Amish country so it was not  uncommon to see a horse and buggy traveling down the road.  I have many pictures that I have taken but I borrowed this image from morgue.file  free for creative uses.  It caught my eye so I couldn't wait to paint it.  Now I will have to look through my photos for more inspiration.

I love the high contrast of the setting sun on the figures.  With the sun crowning the images shapes are simplified and almost abstract in places.  There is more to a painting when it lets the viewer connect the dots and discover what the painting has to say.  Making the experience interactive.

Here we are the first week of November and we are experiencing beautiful warm weather.  This could be the last hurah for our favorite outdoor activities.   I am hoping to make the best of it.  Hiking, biking and painting outside.  I still have to clean up my garden so I am thankful I can do it while I can still feel my fingers while the temps are so high.

This painting is a throwback from a few years ago already.  I was so happy with the chunky, bold, confident brushwork.  Yes I know I feel a little egotistical saying confident but trust me confident, bold brushwork is a constant effort.

Paris
oil on panel

 I loved the mood of the wet, gray streets during the Holidays.  An intimate view of people walking along the little shops.

What a happy change of pace.  I found a wonderful resource that other artists are raving about.  Mourgefile.com it is a website with thousands of copyright free images.  People kindly download their images for all to see and freely use.   Now, I don't  want to use these often for I feel it is very important for me to paint what I live and experience for myself.

Harvest Sunrise Autumn Landscape Original Art


"Harvest Sunrise"
oil on panel 
6x6"

The sunrise was so beautiful this morning.   The mottled lavender clouds and the sunlight breaking through over the dried fields.  This was one if those lucky moments when the paintbrush seems to go on autopilot and paint from the heart.  Does not happen often.  After painting intensely all day on some difficult subject matter I started to clean up for the day.  My son and husband ran out to pick up a movie and carry out.   I knew I didn't have much time but I was in the mood to just paint for fun.  Glad I did because this one was fun!  My husband ended up running into a friend and and chatted so I had a little more time to finish up.
