Another Pretty Day!

We are very lucky here in the Pacific NW to be enjoying some lovely seasonal transition weather.  The sun is out and the temperatures are moderate--just as I like it.  The painting that I'm posting today is "Windowsill Bottles."  It is 9x12 inches and is oil on canvas board.  I enjoy looking at these bottles which live most of the time on my east-facing windowsill so the morning light shines through them.

Another Floral in Oil

This piece which is titled Sunflowers in Blue Vase is another floral study in oil.  The arrangement was a table decoration for a gathering of a group of friends at my home and it seemed to need to be used again.  Therefore, it became another "art object."  Sunflowers are such a cheery flower and paired with the cobalt blue vase, they made a good still life subject.  This is 8 x 10 on a canvas panel.  It is available through my page at Daily Paintworks

September 2017 - Back to the Easel

The summer got away from me with various activities -- some fun and some just plain needed to be done.  I have worked on some artwork, but didn't get any posting done.

I'm posting an oil painting of a favorite rose that I see from my living room window.  Its thorns make trimming difficult, but the blooms are so beautiful.  The color of the flowers changes somewhat from spring to fall.  They are currently a lovely coral color.

This painting is for sale at my Daily Paintworks site.
