BackLit Lilacs

I think this is probably my final Lilac painting for this season.  I put the lilacs in front of my window which has a macrame curtain.  It gave the set up a bit of an ethereal feeling and I tried to capture that.  This is Backlit Lilacs and Macrame Curtain - 12 x 12" - oil on canvas panel.

Hunter - the older brother

I almost forgot to post the painting of Hunter.  Hunter is Colten's and Leighla's older brother.  They are all fun kids who love the outdoor activities.

Colten - oil painting

Colten is Leighla's younger brother.  I like this pose from a photo taken by his mother.  He looks a bit apprehensive, but also appears to be resisting a smile.  Oil on linen canvas 8 x 10"

Leighla - oil painting

I decided to try some oil painting of faces so I asked granddaughter-in-law Melissa for recent candid photos of their children. I like to try to see if I can accomplish likenesses.  It is a struggle, but I hope that practice will help to make it come more easily.  In any case, I will keep trying!  Leighla has two brothers and I will try paintings of them next.

Spring with Lilacs and Desert Rose

Our neighbor was kind enough to give me a bouquet of lilacs which I arranged in my favorite cobalt blue vase.  It seemed appropriate to pair these flowers with the Desert Rose dishes and some stemware.  This piece is 12 x 12" - oil on on canvas panel.

Desert Rose China with TeaPot and Pears

This time I combined the Desert Rose with bosc pears, a teal colored teapot and a brass pot.  I've been trying to gain more skill with portraying metals and shiny surfaces.  This piece is 12 x 16" on an oil-primed canvas panel.
