New Video and a Giveaway!

Happy New Year my friends!  In the video below you will find my first completed painting for 2016 and you can watch it's creation in this short demonstration. I'm having a blast recording these speed painting videos and will keep making more.  I'm still learning the ropes in movie making and they're far from perfect, but I'm still putting them out there.  I'm learning the ropes as I go along. :-D 

I'm also very excited to announce a contest I'm holding.  For all those who subscribe to my newsletter and for current newsletter subscribers, your name will be entered in a draw to win the above original oil painting on June 1st, 2016! Current subscribers need to apply again; your names will be automatically entered.  I will then hold a new draw every six months, so it's a pretty good idea to remain subscribed.  ;-)

I have so many exciting plans for this coming year and I'm just getting started.  Be sure to get my newsletter so you can stay up to date!

For now, I have new work I need to get to so I'd better run.  Stay tunes, and by the way, you can see the painting in the video HERE as well as place an eBay bid HERE.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Fall Gourds Daily Painting Still Life

Fall Gourds
8 x 10 Oil

These little gourds sit on my coffee table in a lovely fall arrangement.  Sometimes you can sit for hours wondering what to paint and the answer lies in front of you the whole time. This is the beauty of still life painting.  There's no need to trek through nasty weather to paint the perfect location under the perfect lighting, or patiently taking thousands of photos to find the right pose while photographing animals who refuse to stay still.  I've done both and enjoyed it, but my heart still lies in still life.  I do plan on some plain air painting soon though, even though I've been saying it for ages it seems.  I will get to it some day.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy this one which is now up on eBay.

While I still had these beautiful and colourful Gala apples, I decided to paint another along with some copper, and an eggshell.  I should've called this one "Apple Pie", but I kept it simple.  There are other close up photos on eBay.  If you like this one, click the above link to bid, or just to see the other photos.  All of the paintings I list have close up photos.

Thanks for looking, and have a great day!

Tomatoes & Copper Relisted!

Hello my friends! It has been a while since I've posted anything.  I was laid up for a while due to surgery, but I am now mended and back at it! Let me tell you though, it was quite frustrating not being able to paint.  Life is amazing now that I'm back in the studio!

I'm busy painting for an upcoming show this summer, and a couple of competitions but I am going to be starting daily paintings and small works for eBay again.  I have relisted this lovely piece and I hope one of you out there will be a lucky bidder! Please click here to have a look on eBay.

P.S. Here is what the painting looks like framed. . .

Hello friends, this will be my last daily painting available for auction for a while.  I'll be having surgery Thursday and will be away for a few weeks recovering.  I hope to bounce back quickly and hit the easel and paints as soon as possible!  If you're interested in this one, please click here to bid on eBay.  And in the voice of Arnold, I'll be back! Thank you!

Here is a little 8 x 10 I painted Saturday, the same day I painted Pear No. 2.  I think this is the first time I have ever painted two whole pieces in one day! Both were alla prima, painted in a classical style.  This one is also available on eBay auction style.  Click here if interested.  Thanks for stopping by! :-)

P.S.  I have started working on a much larger 20 x 30 piece that I'm am super excited about! I'll be posting work in progress shots on my Facebook page.  Enjoy!

Today's daily painting does include an apple, yes, but also another copper piece I own, a delightful Turkish coffee pot with a brass handle. Painting copper is just as awesome as painting apples! And yes, this is available on eBay by clicking here.

I woke up this morning with a nasty cold that's hit me hard.  It was so tempting to just stay in bed all day but I had to paint. This is today's painting and I must admit that I wasn't so sure of myself painting while feeling so awful, but I'm more than satisfied with the results.  I hope you are too, and if the answer is yes, then you can click here to bid on eBay.  Bidding starts at $25.00
