Cow Painting Holstein Grazing Rural Landscape


Holstein Grazing 
6x6"
Oil

When it comes to painting cows or anything for that matter, you must focus on the shape, not the object.  If you tell yourself you are going to paint or draw a cow you will run the risk of going on auto-pilot and start drawing with images in your mind rather than what is right in front of you.
Really look at the shapes and piece it together one stroke at a time and then if you put down what you actually see then step back a few feet and take a look.   You will see something that "reads" what you are trying to say.  Up close it may look like a blob but step back and it probably makes more sense than you thought it would :D

Sunflower Painting Garden Impressionism


"In the Garden"
oil/gesso panel
6x6"

After working on a very detailed painting I was very tired from hours of concentration and not really that pleased with the painting.  So I was kinda bummed, for my day in the studio seemed fruitless.  My palette was covered in beautiful mixes of color and I had little time.  I didn't want to feel defeated so instead of cleaning up for the day I decided to pick up a small panel and let some paint fly.  I am glad I did because it put me in a better mood and I felt I had something to show for the day's work.  Enjoy your weekend!

Sunflower Painting Contemporary Impressionism original art


"Bold and Beautiful"
oil/gessoboard
6x6"

I can understand why sunflowers are so well liked.  They are an amazing flower.  So beautiful, so large and strong.   No pansies here!  Not to forget the seeds, feeding birds and humans.  Painting them is fun too.

Big Sky Painting Alla Prima Oil


"Discover"
oil/primed panel 
6x6"

This painting comes after a few "losers" that will be scraped and painted over.  I am hopeful that was just a mini artist's block.  Yuck!  Now to keep looking forward. 

I like the simplicity of this and the mood it evokes.  Kind of tranquil and soothing.

Autumn Impressionist Landscape Daily Oil Painting


"Change"
oil/primed panel 
6x6"

I know it is a bit soon for Fall but some of the trees seem confused.  We have had record amounts of rain then the days got hot  and dry for an extended time.  We even have 1" cracks in the dirt.  My garden did bounce back from all that rain so we are getting green beans and cucumbers but there doesn't seem to be as many tomatoes as there could be but we will take what we get.  Every year is different.  So for today, a glimpse of "Autumn"

Summer Days Oil Sketches Daily Painting


"Rolling"
Oil/primed panel
6x6"

I have been mixing it up literally by using different combinations of color for green.   Sometimes we have to push ourselves out of our comfort zone to grow.  There is not a lot of green going on in this one but I did figure out a couple different combinations for future paintings.  Woot-woot!

Summer Landscape Contemporary Impressionism Daily Art


"Glimpse"
oil on primed panel
6x6"

Where did summer go?  I know we say this every year don't we?  Here in Indiana summer disappeared for about a month with record rainfall and fears of losing crops.  What did survive went in to hyper-drive when the sun and humid heat showed up.  My puny tomatoes just might make it after all.
I couldn't resist the lush greens especially in the late afternoon sun.

Contemporary Impressionism Summer Driving Original Art


"Summer Driving"
Oil
primed masonite 
6x6"

I snapped this shot on a hot summer day last week.  We were on our way to a swimmin' hole to cool down.  I wanted to keep the feeling of the motion from cruising down the back roads in a convertible of course.  So I painted this alla prima (all at once) with lively brushstrokes and bold colors of a sunny summer day.

Blue Heron Wetland Painting Original Impressionism


"Blue Heron"
Oil/panel
6x6"

Did you see the egret painting I did a couple days ago?  Well I saw this guy nearby.  He was quietly in search of lunch along the treeline.  I really could have sat there longer watching the birds walking through the tall grasses and flying in and out.  Good for the soul.

Egrets Along Eagle Marsh Wetlands Original Art


"Egrets along the Trail"

I guess this is the summer of rain for us.  I lost track of how many inches we have had after 15 inches in 30 days.  Between rain/storm showers we sneaked in a bicycle ride along the local trails.  Every thing is so lush.  I don't remember seeing so many wildflowers.  I had to stop and take pictures when I saw egrets in the tall grasses.  Did I mention the humidity was about 100%?

I used a new color on my palette today that really kicked my colors up a notch.  Do you see it?

"Welcome Home"

Every time I drive by this homestead I imagine having this awesome barn.  It has a loft with huge swing open doors in one end, an incredible place for  a studio. The evening sun was casting long shadows and the deep blues and greens complimented the warm reds of the barn  and brick farmhouse.
