Milk and Cookies Oil Painting

Oil painting on gessoed matboard
Approximately 5.75 x 5.5 inches — 14.5 x 14 cm

I am saving this painting for a second layer. I accidentally applied too much linseed oil on the board before I started painting so the paint became so liquid, it was very difficult to make some areas smooth and even.

I’ve been wanting to do this composition for quite some time now, but I kept putting it off because I was intimidated by the glass dish. Well, these baby tangerines wouldn’t keep any longer so I had no choice but to do it. Surprisingly, this painting was fun and I didn’t come across any difficulties at all.

Well, here’s my 100th daily painting! I wanted to paint something special so this is bigger than the ACEOs I have been posting lately. I also searched quite a bit for that special subject and/or composition. At first, I thought I’d do another avocado like the first daily painting, but since I couldn’t get any avocados, I settled on oranges. I chose this composition because I think it represents “100” perfectly without being too obvious.

I’m dedicating this painting to my Mom, who encouraged me to do the daily paintings in the first place, and who’s been very supportive.

It’s been a good 100 days and I’ve learned so much about oil painting. I’ve been able to paint ordinary things which I never thought would have potential in a painting before. It’s truly a wonderful experience to slow down and examine details and all the beautiful things that God has created for us. Everything is beautiful!

There is still so much to learn, and my plan is to keep this up for at least a year. But we’ll see where it goes. One thing’s for sure though — I’m looking forward to the next 100! I hope you are too!

Thank you to friends and subscribers who left comments and gave their support! Also, many thanks to other daily painters, especially to Michael Naples and Painting-a-Day pioneer Duane Keiser, for the inspiration.

We recently saw these small glass bottles in a market. They were so cute and inexpensive we just had to get a couple! At the time, I didn’t have a specific composition where I’d use them, but my Mom thought they would be perfect for holding flowers. So here is one of those bottles holding the same purple flower from yesterday’s painting and a green one.

I used some impasto for the petals, especially for the green flower. I think this turned out better than yesterday’s painting.

Paradise in Blue Bottle - Daily Painting

Daily Painting #33 – Paradise in Blue Bottle
(Click image for larger version)

Oil on gessoed matboard
Approximately 5.5 x 5.5 inches — 14 x 14 cm
Private Collection

The bird of paradise was difficult to paint, but, surprisingly, the blue bottle was quite easy. I have been putting off painting bottles and jars because I thought they would be too difficult to paint with all the reflections and highlights, but this blue bottle seemed to paint itself.

I’m thinking of a new composition for the bottle. I will paint it again, one of these days, as the featured subject.

Something quite different today — I think this painting is more “contemporary” than all I’ve painted before.
