This was done from my imagination, just slopping away and enjoying the winter colors. Really, if you can get past the cold, the colors in winter are so beautiful. This one will take a while to dry. You'll see why in the close up detail below:

The paint is laid on thick in lots of spots.

Sometimes when you have a canvas that doesn't work as well as you'd like, the proper choice is to "mess it up." Or go at it with a palette knife and an attitude. This is one such. It used to look like this:

Now it's more interesting and messy, and intimate. I exaggerated the orange, and I'm glad I did.
Fun to see the changes, I think.

I know I need to do more work on the still life, where I find the composition and arranging of the still objects a real challenge. Landscapes still feel so much more comfortable for me; colors, strokes, and composition so much easier. Isn't this a sweet little one?

I was able to go to the Food Bank yesterday, where there were loads of apples, so I picked up a few of the least bruised ones. Set them up to paint, and started thinking about my Sunday School class, so diverse. And really, in spite of the skin colors and the cultures, we really aren't all that different. All just struggling along.

I wasn't so much interested in the strawberries, as I was in the lovely shadows they were casting.
I wanted to do this one "directly" without all the fussing and blending I usually do with still life. It's definitely painterly, as they say of this kind of work.

Winter oranges, but they didn't like posing in my cold art corner, so they nestled together for warmth. I painted today in a scarf and hat, so I wasn't too cold, except for my feet. Gotta love orange and blue together.

January Fire - SOLD

January Fire
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 22" x 28"
SOLD at $75 for Pick Up

I had this large canvas, and decided on something colorful, and I'm pretty happy with this one. The only problem with a piece this large is the shipping. So I'm trying this, no shipping, but to sell this one to someone local, who can pick it up. Appealing, isn't it?

Snow Glow - NA

Snow Glow
Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10"
Revised, Not available.

The reference for this one is beautiful, and really deserves a larger canvas, but this was all I had, so it is what it is. I like the coldness of the water, and that wonderful bit of orange glow.

This is the same painting, but I took all the snow fall out, just let it be an impression of a white world.
No more polka dots.

Footbridge in the Snow - NA

Footbridge in the Snow
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"
Not Available, revised on 1/2/2015.
This one is experimental, from a photo reference that I really like. I think it looks good from a distance. Maybe not so much close up.

I've been out of commission for an entire week. A strength-zapping flu bug that's been going around, which started out like a bad cold and then went into chills and fever. I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day under the covers, sleeping as much as I could, too weak to do much else. Today was the first day that I felt I wanted to paint again, and something very simple at that.

I hope that all of you had a wonderful Christmas, those of you who celebrate the Lord's birth.
And I wish each and every one a healthy, flu-free; prosperous and happy 2015. Thank you so much for all your support and friendship over the year(s).

Below is a close up of a little part of the painting, so you can see the palette knife work.
Detail below.


Every once in awhile, a palette knife painting is just the slow down I need. I paint these with just the tip of the pointed small knife, a little tap tap stroke. I'm always happy with how much careful blending you can do with such a tool. Of course, the pieces take forever, but it's also a fun way to paint.

Once again, two freebie bunches of flowers consolidated into one. Nice having a good source for fresh flowers, thank you Food Bank! Done with a big brush, very loose and sketchy.

Available at $15 plus $7 shipping.

The paper here looks buff, but it is actually quite an earthy orange tone. As are the paper bags.
Cheating like crazy, but this drawing was well preserved from 2006. You can see it originally posted here:
Nel's Art Marks  under 2006, November.

This is actually more the color of the paper, below.
Found as I was searching around for something to post today.

Oh, I like this one, I couldn't tell you exactly why. Maybe it's the feeling of space, maybe it's the warm grasses in the field. Or just the overall sense of peace here in this big openness.

Pines and Shadows - SOLD

Since this one didn't sell at $25, I've revised it a bit, and lowered the price.
I deepened the color of the snow shadows, and added more light to the pines, filled them out a bit more, and added the twigs and grasses. Better I think.

We've got cold, raw, wet rain today (OK, I'm grateful it's not snow, but...), and I am thinking greens and colors. I'll still be doing still life, and snow scenes, but for today, I'm resting assured that we will have spring, summer and fall again. Greens and colors, and warmth.
