Together Alone 16"x20" oil

If you think this looks a lot like the painting I posted yesterday, you would be right!  This is a larger version I did as a demo for a class.  I also did two of these for a (dated) challenge for Daily Paintworks to do two paintings that are the same but different.  This one…

Alone Together

What kind of paintings do you like?  I have been thinking about all the different things I do, and my favorites run the gamut of subject matter. "Alone Together"  This was a oil practice demo I did for a recent painting class of beginners painting in acrylic.  I also did one in class in acrylic…

Between Games

I took a chance with this one in the composition….I could have fitted her nicely into the center somewhere and defined what she was leaning against, but I thought it would be interesting to make it edge to edge, like she is leaning against the side of the painting.  I am sure this breaks some…

Garlic 5"x7"

The current DPW challenge is to do white on white.  The tricky thing about doing an almost all white painting is getting the values correct.  I wanted the light on the plate to be warm and the tablecloth to be cooler. I did a stone carving workshop this weekend and my subject was a garlic…

Prelude in D Minor

5"x7" oil This is another exploration of color and music inspired by Rachmaninoff.  I especially like the explosion of pink at the top center and the wavy lines.  I think I learn a lot in these playful pieces.  However, retention of my learning may be another issue….  To purchase this painting click here To sign…

Concerto in C Minor

I am doing color studies to music so I chose for this piece  (after listening to a lot of music) Rachmaninoff’s Concerto #2.  He wrote this concerto in 1900 after a serious spell with depression that lasted about 10 years.  He had completely given up music and then started therapy with Dr. Dahl who used…

The Gardeners oil painting

The Dishwasher 6"x6"oil

These are not my favorite colors, but I really like the subject matter.  I am so drawn to interesting stances that folks make and I love painting kids.  This little guy loves washing dishes and is very meticulous about it right down to putting on his apron.  It really is like painting someone in a…
