I brought home some yellow tulips the other day, and couldn’t resist painting them.
I spent a couple of weeks in Vancouver, and loved it (especially the good coffee and riding the SkyTrain). Here’s a painting based on a few photos I took of one of the beaches there.
I have a good friend who has a beautiful calico cat. She asked me to paint a portrait. Here’s the result:
It looks just like her! My friend is happy with the result.
Because I sold my “Faith” painting awhile back, I decided to repaint it, with a slightly different emphasis. Here is Faith 2:
“Faith 2”, oil, 16 X 20, canvas wrap.
I love to paint people as well as birds, and couldn’t resist painting this little girl watering the garden.
“Girl in Red” oil, 18 X 24
The painting is based upon a photo by imagenie at Wet Canvas artist’s forum. I created the garden from memories, and an old still life of carnations and tulips I had painted awhile back. I hope you enjoy this!
I love horses, and worked on a horse ranch a few years ago. Here’s a picture of a friend walking his horse (a Tennessee Walker) into the barn at the end of the day.
“Going Home” oil, 16 X 20
I am still working on learning how to paint coffee mugs using different media. Here, I painted a female cardinal using oil-based sharpies that I baked.
I like the way the colors turned out. Next, I am painting some cups with Pebeo Porcelaine paints, which I understand are more permanent. I have one almost done, and will post how it turned out next time.
I also plan on painting some ceramic tiles that I got, after doing a series of cups. I am really enjoying the process of painting on porcelain. The cleanup is a lot faster than with oil paints!
