Sunflower Medley

Oil Painting Flower Still Life Botanical Floral Garden


Oil on hardboard, 6" x 8".

It's time to paint sunflowers again and I have two started in my studio. In the meantime, I have a previous image that I'd love to paint again for a collector. It's a close-up of three sunflower heads painted with loose brushwork and great colors! A 6 x 8 would be $90. I could paint it in a larger size also.

English Moor Pony

Oil Painting Pet Art Exmoor Horse British Isles


Oil on Canvas, 10" x 10".

The beautiful English Moor ponies are natives of the British Isles and some still roam free. They are very sturdy and can withstand rough climate conditions. Their long, thick manes are just one of their many attactive qualities. Wow, would I like to work with (and curry!) a large, muscular pony like this English Moor. I can repaint this lovely painting for you. The 10 x 10 size is $125 with $10 shipping. I can paint it larger also. And please consider a commission painting of your horses and pets from your photos!

Pie a` la mode

Oil Painting Still Life Cherry Food Kitchen Art Fruit


Oil on museum quality panel, 6" x 6.5".

I was going for the look of a traditional still life painting with dramatic lighting The ice-cream "dome" emerges from darkness to meet the light and I think is the star of the show. The cherries are the supporting characters as they stand in a melting puddle of vanilla ice cream. Well, that's about as descriptive as I can manage at the moment. I'm sure there's room for improvement and comments are always welcome.

Apple Shining

Oil Painting Gala Fruit Still Life Art Food Kitchen


Oil on Raymar panel, 8" x 6"

The traditional apple was my latest model for a "food" still life painting. I painted a colorful Gala on its side and gave it a long, uplifting stem. I love the yellow and yellow/green markings on these warm red apples. The outcome was pleasing to my eye. I guess I will always love painting apples even after I think I'm bored with them.

Fresh Slice

Oil Painting Watermelon Fruit Still Life Art Food Garden


Oil on stretched canvas, 8" x 10"

A slice of watermelon from a melon in my garden was a terrific subject for a still life. The most fun was painting the grooves or "sockets" containing the seeds. Lots of juicy paint was applied while I was painting this. Sometimes working fast with a loaded brush does just what I want and I think I should try it more often. We planted several varieties of watermelon this year and I'm pretty sure this was a "Congo". And in case you're interested, yes, it was very sweet!.
