Pine Cone With Cranberries -sold

While I painted Winter Bird I was thinking how great a little pop of crimson would be in the scene. Got a bag of cranberries, and here's the next pine cone painting. Every year I can't believe Christmas is over so fast. We'll take down the tree tonight. My allergies and asthma are flared up. Too much tree and not enough turpenoid fumes!!! More time to paint ahead, I hope.

Winter Bird

oil 8x8 inches click for purchase information It just so happened that I'm posting this on the first day of winter. I've been busy with the garage makeover and preparations for Christmas. It felt good to get it all done, and really good to finally pick up a paintbrush last evening. Here's wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a new year filled with love and peace.

Little Blue Vase

oil 8x8 on gallery wrap canvas I haven't posted in a while because I've been working on a big overdue home project: reorganizing our garage. Would much rather paint on canvas than the inside of a three car garage! A few days ago I responded to the DPW challenge with this piece. Qiang-Huang challenged us to let blue be the focus of the work, so I neutralized the other colors. Quite different for me. On another note: I recently have gone through my DPW gallery and added a PayPal Buy Now feature to many of my recent pieces. In doing so, I reduced the previous auction price a bit. So if you're looking for an original piece of art for a gift, visit my Daily Paintworks Gallery here. Thanks for looking.
