ABSTRACTIONS!!, Abstract Paintings, Daily Paintings. daily painter

SOLD
 Although I have been painting, I find myself at the awkward place where I have let myself run out of photographed pieces.  The weather has been rather gray which makes it hard to photograph the colors accurately.  So today, I am posting some abtract paintings.  Most of these are sold, but they may be available as prints on canvas, if desired.
SOLD
 I have had the urge to try some more abstracts, but have really been trying to focus on impressionism, in the hopes of sharpening my skills.  My abstract desires, are like a "guilty pleasure" that I have been resisting.

 If I had doubts about my leanings toward cool colors....it is pretty obvious to me now.

Photo from my customer!

I am trying to catch up from several weeks away, so today, I am posting something a little different.  One of my customers was kind enough to send me images, of my art on her wall, and I thought it would be fun to post today.



She was in the process of remodeling her kitchen and wanted a pop of color on one wall.  

After many emails and conversations, she decided on these three giclee' prints on canvas.  We decided to have a large print in the center and two slightly smaller prints on the sides.

The lemon painting and the artichoke painting were from a farmer's market in Rome, Italy.  They brought back wonderful memories for me.

She was so excited and thrilled with the results.  Thank you, Rose, for sharing this image with me.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Rose Painting, Floral Still Life, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting 8x8x1.5" Oil

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

I was pleased with this one.

purchase here


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.

Dandelion Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Blowing in the Breeze", 6x8" Oil

Still painting flowers, and still painting dandelions.  I think the reason I have been so inspired to paint flowers this spring is my month long trip to the mountains.  As an Ohio girl, living in Florida, it has been a long time since I have experienced a "real" spring....and I missed it!

purchase here
110 + shipping
The area was covered in blooming crabapple, pear, and dogwood trees.  Flowers were bursting out everywhere....tulips, azeala, daffodils, lilac, rhododendron and more.  Why then did a choose to paint dandelions....why not!  I think they deserve a little respect.

Dandelion Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Just a Little Dandelion", 6x8" Original Oil

 They sparkle like little buttery jewels in the fields and lawns.

 I painted with strong, bold strokes to bring contrast to the delicate little flowers.  Next time I will try to paint the fuzzy white ones.

Happy Day!
