Bright Floral Abstraction 12x 36 Inch Oil Painting Palette Knife

This is a 12x 36 inch floral abstraction that I painted for my sister’s birthday.  I still need to varnish it.  It is going to go great in her entry way by her turquoise bench.

Poppies Oil Painting in Purple and Orange 14 x 18 Inch 

Just messing around with a relatively new set of primary colors.  Cyan, Magenta and Yellow plus white.  

Orange Poppies, Ochre Sky 14 x 18 Inch Oil Painting

I discovered cadmium orange a few weeks ago.  I hate to admit that I can’t mix an orange as pure as cad orange out of the tube.  It is such a happy color!  I like to keep my colors to a minimum (I usually have about 10 colors I work from), but lately I’m thinking cad orange and cerulean blue need to be part of my palette.

Vase of White Daisies in Cerulean and Orange 12 x 16 Inch Oil Painting

This vase of daisies is vibrant.  I am loving the brush and knife strokes and the colors.  I have decided that I need to use more cerulean blue.  Beautiful blue!

Sunflower Still Life 18 x 18 Inch Oil Painting

This is a rework of a previous painting.  Originally, the painting was purple with yellow sunflowers.  I changed a few things.  The most obvious being that the vase is now orange.  I personally like it better because I enjoy lots of color.  The orange made my day.  However, my mom, for example prefers the previous version.  To each his own, especially with art.

This is the previous version.  I was working with compliments and kept the painting mainly to purple and yellow.

Sunflowers in Orange Vase 16 x 20 Inch Oil Painting

This is a 16 x 20 inch still life of sunflowers in a very cool orange vase.  I am loving the colors in this painting.  The orange and gold are really nice against the blues and greens of the background.  Unfortunately, we have a man down once again and it looks as if only one sunflower cares.  Bummer.

Orange and Blue Mini Paintings 4 x 4 Inch Flowers

There isn’t much to say about these floral mini paintings except that they are so cute!  I have painted quite a few of these and still say soooo cute every time I finish a new one.
