The more I stare at this, the more I like it. Sometimes, it takes me a few days to really appreciate what I’ve painted. I know the difference between what I had in mind and what my hand decided to do. This was inspired by a monthly lesson I do with Nancy Medina of white lilies.
What started out as an acrylic rough sketch ended up staying that way. I liked it and decided to go no further. At times, I will sketch my painting in acrylic before going to oils. Today, I left it.
This is an 18 X 24 inch oil painting of olives and pimentos. I do know that olives don’t really grow with pimentos already in them, but in my head, they do!
This is a 12 x 16 inch oil painting of one of my favorite snacks. Stuffed olives. I have been on an olive kick lately it seems.
This is a 16×20 oil painting of souls rejoicing or maybe angels dancing on a cloud. I was inspired by a book that was given to me by a friend. I painted this years ago and for some reason, though I’ve gotten rid of oil paintings, I can’t part with this one. I think it is an emotional attachment. It was the first painting I was brave enough to do on canvas way back when. I like it so it hangs in my great room by the fireplace.
This is a 16 X 20 oil painting of sunflowers in the desert I titled “Watching”. These three flowers are watching the sun as all good sunflowers do. Depending on the wall it is hung on, east or west, they can watch the sun come up or set.
