Small Flower Painting, Coneflower Painting, Echinacea Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, SOLD

One of my favorite flowers to paint, are coneflowers (echinacea).  I think they have so much personality.

SOLD

This time, I used a palette knife, to add interest and dimension.



I always try to keep a black frame around, as I think they really help the painting to pop!

You know how much I love flowers.  I love to grow them, and paint them.  Since my move to the mountains, I don't have space to grow to many....so I may be painting them more often.

How could I resist these beautiful poppies?

If you have taken pictures of flowers, that you would like to share with me, I would love to see them.

Roadside Floral, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 9x12" Oil on Canvas

 

When I go on my daily walk, up and down the country roads, I marvel at the gorgeous wildflowers and weeds (?) I find.  It was on these walks, that I discovered the lovely daylilies I planted in Florida, grow wild in the mountains.

So that is the inspiration for this painting, as I gathered these blooms from the ditches and easements along the country roads.

I plopped them in a favorite piece of pottery and started painting.

This piece is 9x12x.75"

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Pink Rose for You, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Giclee Print on Canvas or Paper

 

Yes, yes, yes......I am still painting flowers.  I have been on quite a flower jag lately.

I was pleased with this one.

SOLD


Roses have always been difficult for me.  This time I tried to channel Elio.  I was determined not to describe each petal,  I did my best to remember the softness and translucency of a rose petal.  I wanted to pop the colors, but, not too much.  Finally, I made myself stop!

Yes, I like this one.....and I hope you do too.

This painting is sold, but it can be yours as a giclee print on canvas.  Contact me for pricing and sizes available.

White Rose and Birthday Wishes, Flower Painting, Floral Still Life, 6x8" Oil on Canvas, SOLD

 

Birthday Flowers!!

SOLD
Way back in December, my son and his wife sent me some beautiful flowers for my birthday.  The first thing I did was photograph them.  Then I forgot about the photos!

I finally found them last week, and decided to try my hand at one.  I am very intimidated  by flowers.  They seem so complex and I rarely meet that sweet spot between too little or too much detail.  I am not so sure about this one, but I do like the colors.

Try, try and try again!
