Blue Bottle Alla Prima Still Life


Blue Bottle & Fruit
8 x 10 Oil

This blue vase caught my eye a while back while browsing in a store and I knew it had to come home with me.  It's been waiting to be painted for a while now, and I'm so happy I finally got around to using it in combination with fruits that were in the kitchen.  This painting was painted alla prima, in one sitting.  It's now up on eBay if you're interested, and there are close up shots there as well. Thanks for looking!

Lemon & Bowl Still Life Painting


Lemon & Bowl
8 x 10 Oil

Today's daily is a lemon with a bowl.  I love using this rich cobalt blue with lemons.  I have a large cobalt blue glass vase that I'm just dying to use in a larger still life.  That will come soon, but for now I've got a few more dailies to work on this week and then perhaps I'll allow myself the luxury of working on a larger piece at a leisurely pace.  If you like this one, you can click here to bid on eBay.  Opening bids start at only $50.00.  Thanks for looking!

Lemon & Finger Bowl Daily Painting


Lemon & Finger Bowl
8 x 10 Oil

Today's painting is a lemon with a finger bowl.  It's been a while since I painted a lemon so I figured it was time I did.  I set up my props with natural back lighting, as I enjoy doing so much.  I often paint with artificial light for some of my work, especially chiaroscuro, but natural lighting also brings  something to a painting which artificial light can't.  There's a certain subtlety in natural lighting that I find calming and it works really well for me and my style.

Sweet & Sour, Lemon & Sugar Dish Daily Painting


Sweet & Sour
5 x 7 Oil on hardboard
Carole Rodrigue © 2014

Hello friends, I can't tell you how great it feels to be painting again.  I just love painting lemons, almost as much as apples, so I felt compelled to paint one again. This one has just been listed on eBay with a low starting bid of $24.99 US.  If you like this one, please click here to bid.

Now it's back to painting a very large 48 x 48 canvas I've been working on for a show I'll be participating in this June comprising of only very large works! I'm almost done this one and need to start another very large one pronto, as well as daily works.  Have a great day folks and thanks for looking! <3

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year! I'm excited to be starting another year of painting and looking forward to seeing how the year shapes up artistically.  I do wish each of you a year filled with joy, love, peace, prosperity, and especially good health!

This painting was completed over a few days.  It is not a daily painting and required many more hours of work than a daily painting would.  It is available on eBay now auction style, starting with the very low bid of $34.99 US.  Make this the year you build your art collection, starting with a Rodrigue! You may click here to view this on eBay.

Lemon & China Cup No. 3 Painting of the Day

Here's my lemon passion expressing itself in today's daily painting.  I must say again that I don't know what Blogger has done to their photo upload program lately, but I really don't like the look of the photos when uploaded.  I hope they fix this or I might just stick with my website blog only.  Please do check out my website or the eBay listing for a better look at this painting because it really is a very nice little piece.  You may see this painting on eBay by clicking here.

Apple & Copper Pot Painting of the Day


Apple & Copper Pot
5 x 7 Oil on hardboard

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labour Day weekend.  I took time off from my labours and relaxed for a bit, although I did begin a larger painting.  This little treasure was painted today for my daily painting.  I found this old copper pot a few years ago at a second hand store and it's such a great little thing to add warmth and life to paintings.

This painting is available through auction on eBay by clicking here.

Lemon & China Cup No. 2 Daily Painting


Lemon & China Cup No. 2
5 x 7 Oil on masonite

Today's painting of the day is another with a lemon.  I'm just loving painting lemons lately but I'll move on to something else tomorrow or Sunday.  It's not easy thinking of something new and fresh to paint every day.  I'm also beginning to truly enjoy painting alla prima (painting wet into wet paint in one sitting).  I have to admit that this is something I wasn't fond of before, but it's becoming a lot of fun.  This little treasure was completed in about 1.5 hours from start to finish.  The fun part is learning to let go of every little detail and limiting brush strokes and layers.  It's somewhat liberating, although for larger pieces I will still paint in my slow and methodical way, nit-picking at the details.

Lemon & China Cup Daily Painting

Here's today's painting.  I love how the yellow of the lemon looks against the bright red.  Red always seems to just sign when used in paintings.  I'm going to do more of these in the future, different combinations but definitely with the red placemat.  You can purchase this painting through eBay auction by clicking here

Today's painting of the day is lemons.  I still have this lemon sitting around from last week's lemon piece, so I thought I'd paint another. And guess what? Tomorrow's will have a lemon in it as well.  It's a lemon kind of a week.  I hope you like this one.  You can purchase it by bidding on eBay just by clicking here.
