Cozy & Warm, a Still Life to Warm and Soothe

 Warm & Cozy 
8 x 10 Oil

Since we're already covered in snow, and seeing all the snow Buffalo got this week, I really felt the need to paint something warm and cozy.  I arranged these things together, the cinnamon and pinecone, hot tea, and checkered cloth to create the atmosphere I wanted to evoke.  I'm satisfied with how this turned out.  It's not a daily painting however.  There was just too much detail to paint and many layers to create the right effect, but, it is still listed for the price of a daily.  Folks, this is a steal!  It's now up on eBay.

P.S.  I hope everyone in Buffalo stays warm and safe!

Today's painting is just finished and still very wet and shiny.  The rich colours of fall are everywhere and what would fall be without a few pumpkins and gourds around? I have more gourds too, just waiting to be painted.  I hope I can get around to them.  I also hope you enjoy this painting.  If you do, it's now up on eBay.
