Jemez Iris #2, 12 x 16 Inch Oil Painting

This Iris was painted for Challenge #7, Let’s Paint New Mexico.  The photograph that inspired my iris painting was taken in Jemez, New Mexico.  I am loving the purples.

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.

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

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.
