New Paintings…

Friday, September 16th, 2016

Hello everyone,

I’ve neglected my blog terribly for such a long, long time. There was just so much going on that, for a long time, the Blog just needed to move to the background. I have been painting and taking on portrait commissions though and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the kind folks who have supported and continue to support my work. I’m truly very grateful!

Here are five paintings that I have completed recently. They are all still available and, as before, shipping to the USA is free.

It’s been a while since I last posted a painting. I hope you will bear with me as I try to get my posting habits back in order again.

As some of you know, my Dad suffered a stroke in February of last year. It crippled him badly and my priorities shifted as I take on the new role of caregiver along with my mother and brother. These past 2-3 months especially, we’ve been going around, well, like chickens with their heads cut off! Luckily, I have been able to squeeze in some productive painting time and I have several new works which I hope to show you in the coming weeks, God willing. I hope you’ll stay tuned for those!

Happy weekend, everyone!

Catching up on a few things that happened during the last three weeks…

A week or so ago, Judy Felker featured some of my work on her blog Creative Wonder. Stop by for a visit and check out the other artists she’s featured. I’ve “discovered” a number of new favorites myself.

Also about a week ago, Michel Oosterhout invited me to submit my Apple Half painting below to his An Apple a Day project. Check it out!

Apple Half Painting - Realistic

And about two weeks or so ago, I received in the mail this beautiful pencil drawing from one of the sweetest and kindest persons I know. Sherry is a fabulous artist and I hope you will take time to visit her blog. Lately, she has also begun posting photos of her drawings in progress so you can see how she creates her realistic, and often very intricate, drawings.

Thank you, Judy, Michel and Sherry!

US$200 — free shipping worldwide

For inquiries, please e-mail me at: faithpencilartist@gmail.com





Here’s something a little different and slightly larger than my usual size. This painting of a pair of old boots and a butterfly was requested by a friend. The leather was the most fun to paint and the shoelaces were the most difficult! I really love how it turned out though. It took about 3 layers to complete but was definitely worth it.

Many thanks to jdurham for letting me use her photo as reference for this painting!

Also, I started showing my work on Etsy a while back. If you haven’t heard of Etsy, it’s an online store where you can buy and sell handmade and vintage items. You may check out the paintings I have in my Etsy shop here: faithteart.etsy.com. Thank you for looking!

Bloomers

Bloomers - Plum, Grapes and Leaf Painting

Bloomers
(Click image for larger version)

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 7 x 5 inches — 18 x 13 cm

I can’t decide if this is a silly title for this painting, but I wanted to use something other than “Plum and Grapes”. My favorite part is the bluish bloom on the fruits, hence the title.

Looking Back: Tangerine Duo

Tangerine Wedge Oil Painting - 1 Tangerine Wedge Daily Painting - 2

Daily Paintings #260 and #261 – Tangerine Wedge No. 1 and No. 2
(Click image for larger version)

Oil painting on gessoed matboard
Approximately 6 x 6 inches — 15 x 15 cm
For inquiries, e-mail me at: faithpencilartist@gmail.com

Here are two more of my most favorite daily paintings from the past. I couldn’t help making the first of these tangerine wedges a companion piece because I loved the background color so much.

Doing the “dailies” gave me opportunity to paint subjects I would never have tried otherwise. Some were easy, some a lot of fun and some were challenging. One that I would categorize in all three are water puddles: easy because they are basically just shadow color with highlights; challenging when reflections come into play, but either way, fun to paint!

Lemon on Wood - Dramatic Oil Painting

Daily Painting #361 – Lemon on Wood
(Click image for larger version)

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 5 x 7 inches — 13 x 18 cm

I’m not sure why but I had a very difficult time trying to get the colors to match the original painting and some parts are still a bit off. This is now #361 — getting really close to the “finish line”!

Playing a little with “glowing edges” around those green sprouts. This is something I would like to incorporate more into my work. I think it adds a lot of drama to a painting.

I used the same green cloth as the one in the previous apple painting because I loved its silky texture and the fringe edge. So fun to paint!

I once painted my (then) almost empty blue paint tube. I enjoyed it so much so I decided to do another one, this time the near empty yellow tube. There’s something about painting the tools that I use every day to create these little “dailies”. It’s almost like spending quality time with your best friend.
