White Aster 11 x 14 Inch Oil Painting

This painting took me a full painting scrape before I had something I was happy with.  I learned that if I don’t like what I am doing, scrape it off and start again rather than finishing the painting and trying to make it work.  In my case, I finished the painting and hated it.  I have a thing where I don’t destroy things right away. In this case, I had my mom look at it and got the blessing and encouragement to scrape it off and start again.  I was bummed about the wasted hours but I am glad I scraped it off.  I am happy with the final results of the second try.

Ranunculus in Vase 14 X 18 Inch Still Life Acrylic

I am infatuated with ranunculus right now. They come in so many different colors and I love their full sets of petals.  They remind me of a cross between a poppy and a rose.  Anyway, I seem to be stuck painting them for at least a little while.  Here is one attempt of red ranunculus living in a blue vase on a green table against a yellow background.

I painted a picture in oils of a pear in a martini glass with olives several months ago.  I am keeping it so I decided to try it again in acrylic to hopefully not keep.
