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.

Here’s another painting of one of my most favorite subjects — peeled citrus fruits. I never get tired of painting them and this grapefruit especially was a lot of fun to do.

I spent several days visiting relatives in the countryside last week. I can’t wait to paint some landscapes from the pictures that I took there! Here are a few photos:

Photo - Farm Scene of Rice Fields

Photo: Farm Scene | Most of the tall grasses were brown and dried but the paddies were already planted full of rice!

Photo - Makahiya - Touch Me Not Flower

Photo: The “Makahiya” or “Touch Me Not” Flower | A plant which closes its leaves when touched. It’s too bad I wasn’t able to see it firsthand as I only learned about this interesting trait when I returned home.

Photo - Shady Dirt Road

Photo: Shady Dirt Road | I love shady, tree-lined dirt roads…

Photo - Sunlit Treetops

Photo: Sunlit Treetops | …And bright, sunlit treetops!

Photo - Nesting Hen

Photo: Nesting Hen | I was so excited when I saw this hen sitting inside the basket. I wish I could have gotten closer to take a better photograph but I didn’t want to spook her!

It’s quite frustrating coming back to painting after leaving it for so long. I felt really rusty and was unable to bring myself to finish those which I’ve started. To see if it will help, I returned to a favorite subject which I’ve painted many times before: the orange. It did. It was pure joy to do this one, and what’s more, I really love how it turned out!

I apologize for the glare in the image above. I had a very difficult time taking a photo of it and it’s still not dry enough to scan. I will replace it with a better one when it is available.

I also made a video slideshow of the painting for Daily Painter Originals‘ recently launched Video blog. I hope you like it!

Grapefruit Wedge

Dramatic Grapefruit Wedge Painting

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 6 x 6 inches — 15 x 15 cm
SOLD

I really, really love how this turned out! I was going for a dramatic look and wanted to highlight the glowing red flesh of the grapefruit so I went with overhead lighting and added a slight glow around the edges of the fruit.

This was the very first time I tasted grapefruit, by the way. I’ve always had the impression that it was very bitter, but it was not and I really liked it. To compare the taste with the more readily available fruits here in the Philippines, it was something like a cross between pomelo and langsat (which we call “lansones” here).

Looking Back: Tangerine Duo

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

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!

Two of my fellow members at Daily Painter Originals, Leslie Saeta and Dreama Tolle Perry, are holding a fundraiser to help artist Annie Salness who recently had a stroke. She is recovering and the funds raised from the “Art Walk for Annie” campaign will help pay her medical expenses. I am donating the proceeds from the sale of this painting to the fund. If you would like to know more about “Art Walk for Annie” or how you can help her, please visit this website that Leslie has put together.

By the way, this is the next to last painting before the 365th.

Orange with Harmonica Oil Painting

(Click image for larger version)

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 6 x 6 inches — 15 x 15 cm

We’ve had this Hohner harmonica for decades although I still haven’t learned to play it. I’ve always wanted to paint it because of its antique look, but I could never find the perfect composition for it. For sure I’ll be doing another painting which will feature it better.

By the way, I keep forgetting to mention that artist Monica Burnette recently talked about edges in paintings on her blog and she featured my “Grapes in Small Bowl” in one of her posts. Check it out here! Thank you, Monica!
