"Blooming", oil 5"x 5" SOLD

"Blooming" oil 5x5"

I am obsessing on geraniums again, why, I don't know. I guess that they just
have that certain style that catches my eye.
I have been so busy lately with commissions, some of the commissions will be used 
just for prints and will be sent off to Finland. I will be putting the originals for sale
on DPW. probably in a month or two.
  I also got a call today to do a painting for a book cover, that
is really exciting! 

Geranium Trio oil 8x10

"Geranium Trio" oil 8x10

 My first choice is to paint from life, as these were but sometimes the flowers 
aren't in bloom so I go to my reference photos or from memory. Flowers come and go but
a flower painted is a living moment in time that stay. 

Pitcher and Grapes oil 8x10

"Pitcher and Grapes" oil 8x10"

This painting was painted from life. I started out with a light background, it
seemed to wash out the pitcher and glass, so changing it to a darker background
I was able to capture the highlights from the glass and have the pitcher stand out more. I really
loved how the shadow from the glass rolled across the pitcher and a wonderful cast of color.

This oil can, grease gun and inline filter are from the 40's. They belong to
my brother that collects vintage items, we have a lot in common, I 
love vintage also and really enjoyed painting this.
