Hollyhock Garden 18 x 24 Inch Oil Painting

I can not wait to start seeing blooms!


Two Sunflowers 11 x 14 Inch Oil Painting

This painting was inspired by Nancy Medina.  I get access to a lesson every month for a year from her.  I am really enjoying it so far.  She is a serious flower lover.  Of course I was excited that the first one was sunflowers, but lesson two was peonies and those are pretty fun.  When I get the hang of those, I hope to post some!

Last Painting of 2017 12 x 16 Inch Iris Abstraction in Oils

I figured I should complete one more painting before the year ends. Just a little painting, but I think it has a big personality. I am loving the purples and oranges in this palette knife abstraction of purple iris.

Sunflower Garden 24 x 36 Inch Oil Painting

This is a 24 x 36 Inch Sunflower Oil Painting done in CYM no K (Cyan (Phthalo Blue), Cad Yellow Light, Primary Magenta and no Black) plus White.  I started experimenting with this palette a few months ago and have been slowly learning its oddities.  I really like the warm yellows, rusty oranges, brilliant reds, turquoise blues, vibrant purples…and I am even starting to get the hang of greens.
