Coral Roses with Canister Oil Painting

One more grouping of objects found at thrift stores. The last few small paintings have objects selected that would allow better exploration of the various textures. Punched up the colors a bit in this one to see if I liked the effect.

Brassy Poppies - Oil Painting

Found the little brass pot at the Goodwill. It's one of my favorite places to scout for still life items. This composition is becoming one of my favorite formats. Enjoy!

Lazy Orchid Blooms - Oil Painting

One of those subjects that just seemed to call out "paint me like this." If you decide to frame it, a warm colored frame (not black) does the most justice to the colors in this painting. If not, a table top easel works too!

A Little Mantel Piece - Oil Painting

This was one of those subjects pulled from things just sitting around the house. The hydrangea do not  always dry in a way that is pleasing, but I found a few heads that should find their way into future paintings.

Indian Corn Oil Painting

Here is an Autumn Themed painting that is for sale on Daily Paintworks.

I usually start with pumpkins this time of year, but liked the idea of painting these colorful corn cobs.
Challenging to arrange the cobs for color and deciding how many kernels to paint!! Lots of fun!
