Weaving Steams

I'm glad they got the gallery fixed, HURRAY !!!!!! 12 x 16 Oil (Work in Progress) This is a painting from one of the pictures I brought back from the Smokey Mountians.  I need to add some finishing touches especially to the foreground rock to enhance the light and shadow and to add some water…

Rich Springtime

12 x 16 Oil I recently went to the Smokey Mountains over Easter weekend.  I did this painting as practice to loosen up before I left. Unfortunately I was unable to paint on site because of so many wild thunderstorms.  I did manage to get some nice pictures to bring home with me to possibly…

Charm of a Red House

11×14 Oil I drive by this house all the time and I have always loved it's character.  So I took some photos and tried my hand at a snow scene which I have never done before.  I think I should have worked out the tree in front of the house with a few sketches because…

String Lake Outlet

16×20 Oil This is another painting I did for my online class.  The assignment was "Distant Mountains".  I usually paint sizes of 6×8, 8×10, 9×12, 11×14 and a few 12×16.  I've been reluctant to try a 16×20.  It always seemed so big.  But I decided to it was time to give myself some room to…

Sleeping Indian on a Cloudy Day

9×12 Oil I posted a painting a while back of 'Sleeping Indian" that I did on a sunny day en plein air.  This  one was done from a photo for my painting class.  The assignment was to push color on a cloudy day.  Check out my blog for more discussion.   http://www.daniabree.blogspot.com/

Mount Moran

11×14 Oil  This is Mount Moran in Teton National park.  One of my favorite places.  I painted this for a class assignment for dramatic light.  I think I need more practice but it is a start.  These mountains are so impressive it is hard not to get overwhelmed by them.  They are great fun to…

Week-End Ride

8×10 Oil This painting was done last July while vacationing in Pennsylvania.  It was a hot 90 degree day and the humidity was something else.  When I returned home I decided to add the guy on the bike which I had captured in a photo reference.  This area was the Stover-Meyers Mill on Dark Hollow…

Bufka Farm

6×8 Oil  Hello everyone and Happy New Year !   This is a plein air painting I did this past summer.  It is located about 20 mile northwest of Traverse City, Michigan  It's a beautiful old farm built in the 1880's.  It also has about six other buildings on the property which are classic subjects…

Sleeping Indian

9X12 Oil This is a plein air painting I did this summer in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  The proportion of the Sleeping Indian Mountain needed to be a little smaller but thats what happens when your on the spot sometimes.  It's a day I'll never forget because the light was changing constantly.  First the middle ground…

My Aunt Doris

9 x 12 Watercolor This is my first attempt ever of a portrait.  I had to rely on some of my drafting skills to sketch her from a photograph that was taken back in the 1930's (?).  I'm usually a landscape painter.  Since she passed recently I suppose I am still trying to work some…
