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.

It’s been a while since I last posted a painting. I hope you will bear with me as I try to get my posting habits back in order again.

As some of you know, my Dad suffered a stroke in February of last year. It crippled him badly and my priorities shifted as I take on the new role of caregiver along with my mother and brother. These past 2-3 months especially, we’ve been going around, well, like chickens with their heads cut off! Luckily, I have been able to squeeze in some productive painting time and I have several new works which I hope to show you in the coming weeks, God willing. I hope you’ll stay tuned for those!

Happy weekend, everyone!

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!

Catching up on a few things that happened during the last three weeks…

A week or so ago, Judy Felker featured some of my work on her blog Creative Wonder. Stop by for a visit and check out the other artists she’s featured. I’ve “discovered” a number of new favorites myself.

Also about a week ago, Michel Oosterhout invited me to submit my Apple Half painting below to his An Apple a Day project. Check it out!

Apple Half Painting - Realistic

And about two weeks or so ago, I received in the mail this beautiful pencil drawing from one of the sweetest and kindest persons I know. Sherry is a fabulous artist and I hope you will take time to visit her blog. Lately, she has also begun posting photos of her drawings in progress so you can see how she creates her realistic, and often very intricate, drawings.

Thank you, Judy, Michel and Sherry!

Here’s another brown egg painting. It has a similar “monochrome” color scheme as the last one. I had a very difficult time trying to get the colors on the screen to match the original. The shadow part of the egg is a little more magenta in reality. You will see more of these brown eggs in the future as I really enjoy painting them. I have a whole dozen tray of them bought specially for painting!

Also, I am pleased to announce that I am now a featured artist on Daily Paintworks! I was invited by David Marine (founder of the site and husband of fab daily painter Carol Marine) a couple of days ago and I’m really thrilled and honored to be part of this group! If you haven’t seen it yet, DailyPaintworks.com also has auctions that are exclusively for original art. Check it out — as far as I know, it’s the first of its kind!

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!

SOLD

I’m back to posting new paintings again after a terribly long break. It was anything but a “vacation” though. My father had a major stroke last February. This left him bedridden and dependent on my Mom, brother and me for almost everything. We dropped everything we were doing as the hospital became our home for a while. I did plan on doing some pencil drawings there, but I couldn’t find the energy nor the interest to do anything. Unfortunately, this went on for a good while after we were back home again. It took some time for us to adjust to the new schedules, duties and lifestyle. I can’t say we’ve finally settled down, but I did manage to start painting again several weeks ago.

I have lots to catch up on, but it feels good to be back again.

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!

Inspiration for “Sweet Hearts” came when one of my other strawberries painting was included in this Etsy treasury by member OneofakindSites. Only then did I realize that strawberries do look a lot like hearts!

By the way, a “treasury” is a small collection of items sold on Etsy chosen by a member or user there. The member usually picks a theme and features a few items related to it.

I have been looking back on the first 365 daily paintings and digging out a few of my favorites. Here’s another one.

Also, I started showing my work on Etsy a while back. If you haven’t heard of Etsy, it’s an online store where you can buy and sell handmade and vintage items. You may check out the paintings I have in my Etsy shop here: faithteart.etsy.com. Thank you for looking!
