Where did she go? 6"x6" oil

Well... she is there in plain site in the bowl but they don't see her, it is just like kooking for your keys!

Anna Roeder 11"x14" oil

Working larger seemed to work today.   I have been unhappy with many figure/portrait studies lately so I decided to just concentrate on the head.    We meet for three hours but after taking time for setting up and breaks the painting time is about 2 hours.   Yikes!

Roses 6"x6" oil

After wiping off the painting of today I decided to post this one that I worked on  a couple of days ago.   It is so way better than what I did today, no comparison.

Roses & copper 6"x6"

Yesterday I painted this hammered copper cup and big rose.   I was not happy with it so today I decided to add to it to make it more interesting.    I am not great with roses but I think it might be my latest new challenge.

Lazy afternoon 11x14 oil

The glow or rather the reflected light on her face and neck in this photograph of the painting is too much the same color of orange.   On the painting it has more subtle changes.   I used numerous light source settings but I find that reds do not photograph well.   Please let me know your suggestions on how to photograph reds.

The curly purple one 6"x 6" oil

Brought these irises in just before it started to rain.   This deep purple one is my favorite because of the dark rich color and has curly petals.  (I'm sure there is a name for it besides the "curly purple one".)

Under the orange umbrella 11"x14" oil

This lacquered, oriental, paper umbrella I have used many times.   This time we lit it from behind which casts a warm glow on her right side.    I debated wether to include the dark chair back but in the end I thought it separated the umbrella glow and the glow on her shoulder, plus it gives the painting another dark area.   I like the cool north light in contrast with the warm light.

Sweet sunny coffee 8"x8" oil

I can't believe it has been almost a month since I painted a still life!   Life has certainly interrupted my schedule.   It is so hard to get every thing done when your second in command does not pull their weight!     I am going to have to have a heart to heart talk with my Shih Tzu, Whirly Girl, because she is clearly taking too many naps.    
I could certainly tell that I am rusty.   Making this an 8x8 instead of a 6x6 changed it some but I just used bigger brushes.

Sun dress & long hair 11"x14" oil

I am not sure how successful this one is but here it is anyway.   The part (no pun intended) I think is the most successful is the hair.

Contemplation 14" x 11" oil

This pose was hard for the model to hold so she posed in 15 minute segments.   I love where the warm light meets the shadow side which left a blueish terminator edge (where the light and shadow each terminate, it has nothing to do with Arnold).

Spring in a jar 6"x6" oil

I had a hard time getting the paint thick enough to lay on the surface.   The new cadmium yellow had too much oil in it so I put it on a piece of towel paper to absorb the excess.   Once it was a little stiffer it worked fine.  I had to stand back from this to see if it was working.    They look like two best friends holding their own... side by side.

Kentucky Bourbon, Trader Joe style 6"x6" oil

Trader Joe's Kentucky Bourbon is very good and if you know anything about Trader Joe then you will know that they went around to the big name Bourbon manufacturers here in Kentucky and made a contract with them to supply them with their own bourbon, bottle and label.     And... they sell it at a great price!    It is a great value for their customers.    I love the round bottle.    I guess I would have to have a taste test to see what brand it is closest to... unless someone out there already knows...

Angels Envy 6x6 oil

This bottle has angel wings printed on the back. Angels Envy is charred in oak barrels and then finished in port wine barrels which gives it an uncommon taste.  Their rye is finished in rum barrels.

Woodford Reserve neat 6"x6" oil

If you get on Woodford Reserve's website you will read about how this bourbon is hand crafted in small batches and the five sources of flavor that gives it its distinct taste... and I think it taste pretty good too!

Red Tulips 6"x6" oil

We in Louisville KY are taking this as a hopeful sign of spring even though it was spitting snow today. We have not had as bad a winter as the east coast has had but we have had our share of  cold and are ready for spring and warmer weather.   My students brought these tulips from their garden to paint in class and left them so I could paint them and I did.   Spring is around the corner even though it is going to be 20° tonight.

Waiting to dance 11"x14" oil

This red dress is always fun to paint with its yards of netting, tons of sequins and ruffles.  It was fun to be loose on this painting.   I decided to put her off center to make the composition more interesting.
