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.

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.

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.

Another visit to the Food Bank over the weekend. It's so nice that I can also get flowers there, pick a couple of packages, and then discard the dead flowers, make a new bouquet from the survivors. Along with my blue vase from our local hospital thrift shop.

I have to admit that I had help with this one. My 6 year old granddaughter loves to draw and paint, so she sat on my lap (lap painting, Yay) and did the white snow for me. But only to the edges. "I can blend, TT!" So I let her do a little of that too.

Here's Kayla painting outside on the deck this past summer. (See the tongue action?)

Our pastor on Thanksgiving Eve was a local rabbi who announced at the service that he also ran a Food Bank out of his third garage. We were invited to follow him home and it was a bonanza of lovely food, a lot of it from Trader Joe's. I've gone back about four times since then, and have had some wonderful meals, fresh produce only slightly marred, and this time when I went I took three almost dead bunches of flowers, picked through them, and made this freebie bouquet. What's not to like?

There was a nice sale on tucked canvases today at Michaels, 5" x 7" tucked into 8" x 10", tucked into 12" x 16", and two more larger graduating sizes of canvases. All five for $14.95. Good deal, right? So here's the first one on the 5" x 7", just a quick pepper, since I still have them.

I had painted this one last week, and called it "Ablaze at Wildwood." (Scroll down five posts to see.) Since it didn't sell, I decided to play around with it. I added more green, added more sky holes, used a palette knife to make it a bit more complicated and textured, and lowered the ground line. Much better now, I think. More "leafy" looking.

There is a small pond in Amherst that my friend B visits most years in the fall. She has sent me photos.
Spectacular colors reflected in the dark water, so lovely, and I was thinking about Solomon in all his glory, not being arrayed as splendidly as God's fall palette.

Another version of the Burnt Orange trees at Wildwood. This time I tried to resist the urge to go at it with my palette knife, not entirely successful, but for the most part, this is a brush painting. Yum on the colors.

I found this bowl at one of the Goodwill type stores in the area, can't remember the name, Value City or somesuch. I thought I'd use it for lemons, but I used the lemons in my tea. Oh, well, there were apples at church on Sunday, so I grabbed a few. (We have a surplus food ministry at church.) Perfect for a small canvas.

I know, you've seen so many maples from me this fall. I think this may be the last time for using this particular reference, taken in front of my daughter's old house in Barre, Massachusetts. But yes, I wanted one more, just one more. I wasn't quite finished with the lovely maples. My favorite fall trees.

I snapped the reference photo for this one on the way home from an unsuccessful plein air outing with a class I was taking at the time. I love the orange reflections in the water. It was probably the best part of the day.
And yes, the painting did go more easily today, back in the saddle.

It's been five days since I painted with oils, having taken a small detour to do a couple of watercolors. Just long enough to forget how to paint, really. I had to struggle with this one, scraping some area off twice to repaint them. I'm pretty happy with it now, but I wonder how that is, that you can forget so quickly, and be awkward with the return.

I am calling these little ones "Fall Smalls" since they are each on 8" x 10" panels, and they paint pretty quickly. They are all variations of work I've done on larger canvases.
