Potted Pansies

Oil Painting Flowers Still Life Art Garden Botanical Pale

Oil on canvas, 11" x 14".

One of my favorite ways to develop a painting is having the subject on a windowsill.  I added a few red and yellow pansies among the many purple ones and really liked the effect.

Soccer Ball

Oil Painting Still Life Sports Equipment Toy Ball PlayI

Oil on canvas, 10" x 8".

A soccer ball that has been used time and time again was my subject for this painting.  I liked painting this portrait view of the ball which shows some "personality" I think.

Golden Delight

Oil Painting Farm Animal Rooster Portrait Chicken Pet Animal

Oil on board 12" x 9".

This is definitely an early morning rooster in deep shadows.  The golden light only catches highlights on his head, neck and feathers.  His wattles really glow too.  He's quite a show-off.

Before the Storm Iris

Oil on canvas, 10" x 8".

I painted one of my irises against a dark background to bring out the rich colors of the petals.  And it allowed the almost transparent whites to glow and wave.

Dramatic Lilies

Oil Painting Still Life Art Flowers Vase

Oil on canvas hardboard, 14" x 11".

The day lilies were painted against a white background so it was nearly a study in white on white to me.  I thought that each lily seemed to be vying to be the most dramatic of the three so I played up that thought and vision.

Sadie in Summer

Oil Painting Pet Cat Art Animal Portrait Siamese Feline Sunshine

Watercolor on Bristol board, 10" x 11 5/8".

I painted this portrait of a beautiful Siamese cat a few years ago when I was exploring painting with watercolor on Bristol board.  I remember how I liked the "puddling effect" of the paint on the smooth surface.  It's also much easier to lighten an area that has become too dark or intense on the Bristol without ruining the surface of the painting.  I think I captured Sadie's intense interest in her environment!

Potted Bell Peppers

Oil Painting Vegetables Still Life Art Kitchen Garden

Oil on canvas, 8" x 10".

I spotted a display of these potted peppers at the Home and Garden Show in Little Rock, AR recently.  I don't remember what the vendor was actually selling, but these three guys really caught my eye.  The individual peat pots have interesting personalities too!
