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!

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

Daily Paintings #260 and #261 – Tangerine Wedge No. 1 and No. 2

Oil painting on gessoed matboard
Approximately 6 x 6 inches — 15 x 15 cm

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!

Cheese Sandwich Oil Painting

Daily Painting #265 – Cheese Sandwich
(Click image for larger version)

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

Before I post another new painting, here’s an older one from the 365 daily paintings. It was one of my favorites and still is. There is something about the dark green background that I find very appealing and I will likely be using it again in future paintings.
