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!

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!

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

Daily Paintings #260 and #261 – Tangerine Wedge No. 1 and No. 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!

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:

I absolutely love this one! There’s something about this color scheme that I find very pleasing. I liked it so much that I decided to make the next painting a companion to this.

Oil painting on gessoed matboard
Approximately 5.5 x 7.5 inches — 14 x 19 cm
Not for Sale

Here’s the first of two landscape paintings that I will be posting today.

One of the things that I like best in a landscape painting is when it invites one to jump right into it. And one of the things that makes a landscape painting “inviting” for me is when the foreground has some elements that look close enough to touch, or maybe a rocky path that seems close enough to walk on. I attempted to capture that effect here so I painted quite a lot of the individual blades of grass.
