Young Man - SOLD


Young Man
Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
SOLD.

Close Up Below:

I thought I would try some faces. Not portraits, mind you, just faces off the Internet. Perhaps the likenesses will come with practice, because although this looks like a young man, it isn't very close to the reference.

Farmhouse on the Hill - SOLD


Farmhouse on the Hill
Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"

I thought this one was sold, but since I couldn't promise pre-Christmas delivery, the collector decided to pass on it. Hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas Day yesterday.

Candy Cane Floral - SOLD


Candy Cane Floral
Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 10" x 10" x 1.5"
No frame is needed.
SOLD.

Okay, it's a stretch, isn't it? But it did remind me of a candy cane when I was painting it.
I haven't posted for a few days, since once we got our Internet back, I got sick with the flu. (Maybe getting a flu shot would have been a good idea, coulda shoulda woulda.)

Hope all your plans for Christmas are shaping up nicely, and you are well.

Knife Landscape, Small

Knife Landscape, Small
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8"
Available.

If you are interested in this little palette knife landscape, please send an email to NelVanL@aol.com.
Don't worry if I don't respond right away, as our Internet is down at home (I'm having withdrawal) and I'm writing from our local McDonalds. (No TV either, which means no CNN in the background while I paint.)

This is what happens to lemon paintings that don't turn out well, or earn their keep by selling.
Bad lemons! December 15. (or maybe the painter wasn't quite on the ball...)

Detail (close -up) Below:

Fall Landscape

We had a very long class (8 hours) yesterday (my paint-along with Johannes Vloothuis) and out of the three paintings Joe did, I was only able to complete one, the fall landscape. Today I revised the winter light piece, (thicker tree trunks, more barkiness) and I am offering the two at "best offer" prices. Please send an email to NelVanL@aol.com if you are interested in making an offer on either one. Please don't forget that I'll add $7 shipping to the smaller one, and $12 shipping to the larger one.

Winter Light -SOLD


Winter Light
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD.

This was our painting (mine is somewhat altered from the class painting) for this past Saturday, but because my little granddaughter, Kayla, was here visiting, I only got a couple of hours of painting in. Then used the video and finished it up yesterday and today, several hours each day. Don't you love the colors?

I do plan on doing it again, and now that I know where I'm going, I think I'll have even more success.

Winter Gold
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"
SOLD.

I wanted to see how different a pre-painting would be from the guided step-by-step painting we'll do in class tomorrow, so I used tomorrow's reference photo and did this one. We'll see what changes there are tomorrow.

I participated in our online class yesterday with Johannes Vloothuis ,which is a 6 hour paint-along, and although he was doing his church in watercolor, I picked up a lot of good information for oils as well. Isn't this charming? Thanks for looking.

Fall Leftovers - SOLD

Fall Leftovers
Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
SOLD.

This one started out as a fall (acrylic) demo in class, but we didn't complete it. So today, so as not to waste the canvas, I finished it in oils. I left little tiny bits of the underpainting showing through, a nice effect. Click to see it larger.

Mountains and Shoreline - SOLD

Mountains and Shoreline
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
SOLD.

I was way out of my comfort zone on this one, which was done as a follow-along painting with Johannes Vloothuis yesterday. The 6 hour class was through a video stream. His palette is different than mine, and I couldn't get the reference photos (later I used Firefox and was able to get them) he was using, so I really was limping along.(Besides not "knowing" mountains.) But I thought it might appeal to someone, so here we are.

Pears on Artichoke Dish Towel
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD.

It's been awhile since I did anything complicated with a still life, but I was gifted some treasures from Tuesday Morning, (thanks so much, B.) and a couple of new dish towels were calling me to paint them. The cloth here is a graphic artichoke design, and I love the colors. The light is actually a soft cream color, not white.

Country Road, Revised - SOLD


Country Road, Revised
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"

I softened the hard lines of the road, balanced the foliage a little more, and reshaped to simplify some of the cast shadows. I also added dropped leaves in the road, which makes more sense.

Fence Glories - SOLD


Fence Glories
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"

So it now becomes available.
The fence looks so bare now, since the Morning Glories got nipped, and I had to tear them all down.
I plan to have more next year, yay!
