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.

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/

These pigeon orchids are a challenge to paint. I have to start painting as soon as the buds open or else they will be droopy and wilted before I even finish setting up my oil paints! They are beautiful flowers though and I look forward to painting them some more in the future.

Pink Lotus Painting - Oil - Flower

Daily Painting #311 – Pink Lotus
(Click image for larger version)

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 6 x 8 inches — 15 x 20 cm

I painted this lotus flower for the April challenge on James Parker’s Windows to the Words. It took me a few more hours to finish than usual, but I had a lot of fun with it. I especially enjoyed painting the reflections in the water.

More Windows to the Words…

The “For the Birds” challenge back in March was at the same time a contest with prizes.

Bluebird Painting - For the Birds Contest

My bluebird painting above won 2nd place and I received these two lovely paintings by James Parker. I am actually glad I wound up second because I am thrilled to own them both! Thank you, Mr. Parker!

Here’s a picture of me holding one of the paintings:

A while back, I painted these Dendrobium orchid buds. Here’s a painting of one of those buds fully opened.

Phthalo blue is a very powerful color and I have to constantly remind myself to use only a small amount. Too much usually results in a pile of mud-looking mixture.

I often forget, however. I don’t think I’ve ever used it on a background and didn’t end up scraping it off and trying again. This usually means that after the painting is done, I’ll end up with a pile of “mud mix” from the background attempts which didn’t turn out right. Check out the next painting to see how I used that “mud mix”.

I waited for this orchid to flower for a long time. I think it was over a year ago when it last bloomed. I was really excited when I saw the buds growing. Today, all three buds have fully opened — it’s really wonderful to see its deep purple flowers again!

Orchid Bud (ACEO)

Orchid Bud - ACEO Oil Paintings

Daily Painting #215 – Orchid Bud
(Click image for larger version)

ACEO oil painting on gessoed matboard
Approximately 2.5 x 3.5 inches — 6.5 x 9 cm

This orchid bud was done using leftover oil paint that I had from the previous day’s session. My reference was a pencil sketch that I did from life a few years ago. Somehow the monochrome effect didn’t look right as I was painting it, but in the end, I liked it and thought it had a “classic” feel to it.

I really enjoyed painting “Happy New Year” so I decided to do another one with a similar concept. Thinking of subjects for these trompe l’oeils is just as much fun as painting them and trying to make them look realistic.

This is the first time this orchid has bloomed for us. I don’t know its name, but it has long graceful spikes full of tiny, tiny flowers with orange centers. To orchid lovers out there, if you know the name of this orchid or what species it belongs to, please let me know.

Here’s something different from the usual detailed and realistic paintings — one in an “impressionistic” style. While I’d call this going outside the comfort zone, I actually did little planning and tried to be very relaxed and free. In reality, the roses and leaves have some texture because of the thicker paint that I used but the scan doesn’t show it very well.

I’m not sure I’ll be doing more of this kind of painting anytime soon, but it is good to try something different once in a while.

We bought a small bouquet of these little rosebuds a while back. I kept painting them until they wilted and lost their shape, so I will be posting rose paintings for a few days.
