Jim Beam white label 6"x6" oil

Back to painting some bourbon.  It seems to be a popular subject.   There is so much warmth in the color of the liquor that I thought putting some blue in the background would balance it out.

Red Bandana 12"x16" oil on canvas


I love the way the cool light from the north windows collided with the warm light from a lamp.   The play of warm and cool were really fun to play with.

Daisies in a huddle 8"x8" oil

If they are in a huddle why are they all  facing out?    Are they looking out for the other team?   I think because I have not painted on a regular basis I have forgotten how.   I seem to have pickitus.  But you have to start somewhere!   For the last two months I have rehabbed my living room.  Scraping, puttying, caulking, priming, putting up wood trim, and painting horizontal stripes on the walls.   After 14 years it is time for a change

History reading 9"x12" oil on canvas

When working with a busy, colorful subject I like to create color harmony by using the color palette all over, meaning that what colors are in the subject I also put in the background and when a different color is in the background I like to put it in other areas and also on the subject in some way.

The Emu Dress 14"x16" pastel on paper

I got out all my paints and then decided to do a drawing instead.  She is wearing a vintage dress with feathers on the bottom and we decided they were from an Emu.  It just felt right to do a drawing instead of a painting for some reason.

Between dances 12"x16" oil

When Liz showed up I asked her to choose something out of the costume closet.   I think she chose well.   It was a challenge to paint all of the dark and make them distinct as well as loose.   Another challenge was the warm light on one side and the cool north light on the other.

Napping 6"x6" oil

Red and Orange were exhausted from all the days activity so they decided to just be still for a little nap. This is my fourth painting for DPW's Weekly Challenge.   So now I can post them on the site.   It was good for me especially since I have not been painting as often.   I felt with each painting that I was starting from scratch and had forgotten how to paint!   I feel that these four paintings are a little different style than my usual of late.

Don't look! 6" x 6" oil

Orange did not want Red to see how clumsy he was so he told Red not to look while he climbed in the cup.   This is the third painting for DPW's Weekly Challenge.  It is the 4 in 4 challenge, I misread the instructions and thought it was 4 paintings using the same 4 objects, quite similar to how I do my series, but nooooo, when I read it again after painting my first two I noticed it was supposed to be a cup (or object of choice) and 3 different  colored pieces of paper.    Oh well!   I decided to continue with what I had started.   Sorry Carol!

Hide and seek 6"x6" oil

These two decided to play hide and seek.   Red doesn't think Orange will find him, what do you think?
I painted this to enter into Daily Paintworks Challenge for the week.  This is the first of four paintings with four objects.   Ok... I did not read the fine print before I started and it is supposed to be an object with four pieces of colored paper.  Well, I am close.   I painted four objects, a cup, two peppers and blue paper. Since I have painted two paintings with these objects I am going to continue with that theme.

Sugar Sugar Teapot 18" x 18" oil

Dreaming of travel 18" x 18" oil on wood

This is a larger work, 18" x 18" on wood with 1.5"wood sides that are painted also.   I think of my daily small paintings as sketches and I believe some of them will work well in larger formats.   The compass is from my childhood when I would go to camp and we were required to bring our own compass.   I have no idea why I put the marble there... maybe subconsciously as a rolling stone.

Prim but not proper. 16"x20" oil

Standing idly around 6"x6" oil

I saw these clear bottles and thought they might make an interesting painting, but when I set them out and looked down on them they had more color in the glass than they did on the shelf.   I think  looking down on them makes the slight color shift more dramatic.  I think the one with the old furniture polish added some nice color.

Golden Haze 11"x14" oil

About 15 years ago I made a floor screen with a painting of Pointe Vecchio in a 1930's deco style of painting and on the back side I covered it in gold leaf, well not actual gold leaf but that composite gold leaf.   I decided to use that  as a back drop for this painting.  It really glows when the light hits it.   It was fun for a change.

Announcement:  I have two figurative paintings in a show that is opening 6-9 this Friday September 6.   Click here for more information.   It will be at the PUBLIC, 131 W Main St, Louisville KY.   If you are in the area  please stop by.

This 1951 Henry J was here from Alabama and I could not resist it.   I am in love with the grill!  And as you can see the engine is more than a 4 cylinder.  

The Henry J was built by the American company Kaiser-Frazer Corp. and named after the Chairman, Henry J Kaiser.  The first year they were built, 1950 (that is the year I was built too!) they had 6 cylinders and they began 4-cylinder models in 1951. The company quit producing in 1954.   Read about the car's brief history and interesting facts here.

Reclining nude in green 14"x18" oil

With this painting we had her pose twice for a total of 6 hours which included breaks and setting it up.  Everything I have done of late has been alla prima, (painting wet into wet paint or all in one sitting) so it was a challenge to paint on it the second time on top of dry paint!   We had a warm yellowish bulb above her and north light coming in through the window at her feet which made for some interesting contrasting light.   I loved the foreshortening, one of my favorite things to do because of the challenge, I think.

Study in blue 8"x8" oil

This painting was my demo this morning for my Monday students so I painted it on a larger panel to make it easier to see.   I chose these three Hydrangeas that one of my students brought because of their blueish colors.   Put them in a blue bottle and the shadow is blue because of the reflection of the sky in the north light.

Four hands 6"x6" oil

Sold
Every Sunday Daily Paintworks posts a weekly challenge.   This week is my challenge on that site, click here for this information.
The challenge is to paint the hands simply. Capture the gesture in a painted sketch, paint in the dark values then add the light. Squint your eyes as you look at the hands to see the difference between the light and shadow areas. Keep those values as you paint the correct cool or warm "value colors". Painting in the overall hand shape to start helps to keep it in the correct proportion. Here are 4 hands to be painted on a 6"x6" panel making each hand fit roughly in a 3"x3" square.

The focus is her hair so I painted the rest softer.   I believe the color comes out better in a larger picture.

Pinky 6"x6" oil

My pink Hydrangeas are blooming!   There are never very many blooms because the previous owners planted it in the shady the north side of the house, but this year I really will only have about 7 blooms.  Darn!  When painting this pink and trying to get a bright pink I had to get out a tube of Quinacridone red which is not made from a mineral and therefore when you mix it with white it is brighter or rather a more clear pink.   For instance when you mix white with Alizarin Crimson it is pink but it is a grayer pink because it is from a mineral.   I find that many flower colors like Gerber Daisies are bright and you need to use modern colors like thalo and colors that are not mineral.  That is all I know for today!
