I absolutely love seafood paintings! I hope to do more of them but I’ll work from photos next time instead of from life like I did for the fish painting above.

Phalaenopsis orchids are some of my most favorite flowers. I find them very elegant and great painting subjects. I really like this light violet/pink variety against the gray green background.

On another note, my good friend Sherry recently started a new blog. She is doing a weekly challenge where you can join her paint or draw from a single reference photo. Sherry is a kind and wonderful lady and a great artist! Be sure to stop by her blog and join in: http://artistsherry.blogspot.com/

After a long (unintended) break, here is a new post to start the New Year right. I just recently bought a tube of Mars Red and I’m having a lot of fun with it. The background in the rice painting above was painted with it. Alone or with a bit of blue, it’s a gorgeous deep red color which is very opaque. So nice to paint with!

I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season. Happy New Year, my friends!

The November issue of American Art Collector magazine has an article regarding “Small Works and Miniatures”. A group which I am proud to be a member of, Daily Painter Originals, has been featured within that article and my lemon painting above is one of the art shown.

I hope you will check out the magazine. Our short article starts on page 84.

And by the way, you can subscribe to the Daily Painter Originals mailing list if you’d like to receive in your inbox all the new artwork that are posted to the site everyday. There are 30 of us in the group so there is a good variety of styles and subject matter!
