Orange and Purple Flowers 18 x 18 Inch Still Life

I have no idea what these flowers are.  I have them in planters outside.  The purple are some kind of salvia, but I am at a loss with the orange.  At any rate, I thought I would put them on canvas.

Purple Flowers Blue Vase 11 x 14 Inch Oil Painting

I have painted very little recently but did manage to get this one done.  This is an 11 x 14 inch oil painting done mostly with the painting knife.  I can do that…sort of…with the casted right hand.  I used my left hand when I had to, but tried to keep with my right.  It takes A LOT of focus and brain power to use the left hand and I just wanted to paint and listen to podcasts.  Not bad.

Compliments Purple and Yellow Iris Still Life 14 x 18 Inch Oil Painting

This is a 14 x 18 inch oil painting done in complimentary colors.  I am working with yellows and purples at the moment.  I painted this one for my bathroom.  I love that when I get tired of the art I currently have hanging that I can throw out what I don’t want, or give away (I am trying to talk my husband into a bon fire) and then put a brand new piece up.
