Lynn's Birdhouse

Oil Painting Victorian Landscape Art Flowers Goldfinch

Oil on canvas, 24" x 12".

This Victorian birdhouse and garden painting was a wonderful concept that came from one of my collectors.  She commissioned a painting of her sweet birdhouse and I added some of her favorite colors and also some wildlife who are enjoying the house too.  It was fun to paint and made me smile too.

Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Oil Painting Food Art Still Life Bakery Kitchen

Oil on canvas, 6" x 8".

The icing on the bumpy shape of the Bundt cake is attractive to me in this painting.  But I think my favorite elements are the warm orangey glow of the pumpkin cake paired with a deep blue dish.  Fun!

White Lilies and Turquoise

Oil Painting Art Flowers Vase Still Life

Oil on canvas, 14" x 11".

A study of painting white subjects led to this paintings of white lilies in an attractive blue/turquoise vase.  The hints of reflected colors in the petals of the lilies were exciting to find and explore.  The vase was my favorite to paint along with its stopper.

Lemon Eclair Sunflower

Oil Painting Flower Still Life Botanical Floral Garden


Oil on hardboard panel, 6" x 7".

This variety of sunflower, named "Lemon Eclair", is definitely different from the traditional sunflower that I usually paint and so it was a challenge and some fun at the same time. The profuse yellow petals surrounding the smaller dark center are spikey and fluffy. Lemon sunflowers make their own statement I believe.

Surprised Teddy Love Bear

Oil Painting Childrens Christmas Toy Present Gift Art

Oil on canvas, 9" x 7".

This little Luv Bear was a Christmas gift from a few years ago and I was inspired to paint him in one of the many different personalities that I see in him.  Here he has his surprised or startled expression that I find very endearing.  He's kind of a cool guy actually.  The fact that he is extremely squeezable doesn't hurt either!  Along with capturing his expression, I was excited about painting his furry body and red sweater falling into shadow.

Tabby Maine Coon

Oil Painting Cat Art Animal Pet Portrait Wild Feline

Oil on canvas, 8" x 6".

I so enjoy painting "wild- looking" felines like Maine Coon cats.  They might be wild in appearance but they are actually very personable and gentle.  We have been feeding and giving shelter to a stray cat who has many of these same features as the one in my painting but without the long hair.  She has shown her thankfulness by bringing us two gophers. She's earning her keep!
