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.

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.

Oil painting on gessoed matboard
Approximately 5.5 x 7.5 inches β€” 14 x 19 cm
Private Collection

In the Cup of Chocolate painting I posted yesterday, I used just three colors plus white: burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, yellow ochre and titanium white. For this painting, I substituted cadmium yellow lemon for the yellow ochre. I like how both turned out. I feel that using a very limited palette gives a painting an overall harmony.

Also, yesterday was the first day that I didn’t finish a painting. I did use my oil paints and worked on a new portrait though. If you’ve been following the Different Strokes from Different Folks blog, the latest challenge is the Year-End Portrait Swap. Ms. Jurick gave all participants photographs of other artists to paint from.

I started mine yesterday and am nearly finished with the underpainting. So far, so good. Below is a peek of what it looks so far.

I think I’m in a green mood lately — after green chili peppers and green bell peppers, here are some green lemons.

I wasn’t sure if these were limes or just green, unripe lemons. I researched on the internet and found that limes are much denser and would sink in a bowl of water. These floated so I guess they’re green lemons.

It’s nice to finally be able to find use for this baby mug! It actually has a pattern on the outside, but I left that out in the painting. I’m sure I’ll paint it again in the future and maybe I’ll include the design then to give it more character.

I’ve always liked earthy colors so I tried using them on most of this painting, leaving the lemon with the only bright color.
