Apple Pie Tonight 8x10 oil

My sister Jan is always willing to be my model. The sun was blasting hot that day, it was around 11:00 in the morning. I wanted to define the light more than anything. Those apples were really good eaten too!

Geraniums by the Window 8x10 oil

I always seem to go back to painting geraniums, love the reds in the flowers and the green complementary color in the leaves. My goal was to keep the bottom portion of the painting in shadow and the flowers and leaves in the light. With touches of light here and there.

Perching Dove 5x7 oil Sold

My brother and his wife have a bird feeder and birds are always flocking there. I got this shot of this dove perching in a birch tree. I liked how the dove was in shadow but a bit of light was hitting his back.

Geraniums on Sill 8x10 oil Sold

I was happy with the lighting on this piece, from the real dark values of the inside of the window to the lightest values on the outside of the window. I really like to capture the feeling of sunlight. This window and sill were a little bit different from what it really looked like,  I do that with most of my paintings, adding and subtracting what was originally there until I get the feeling that it feels right.

Quilting 6x6 oil Sold

I set this still life up using different materials from my sewing box. I tried making a small quilted pillow years back, I will stick to painting. I really appreciate the work that is involved in quilting. I demo my oil paintings at the Washington State Fair, I will take a break and browse to see all the beautiful art and on display are many beautiful quilts. So creative what they can do with these quilts. Anything handmade gets my attention.
