Autumn Cherry Tree #1 - Commission

Well, here it is, above. I tweaked it. Hope it is better. I think it is. What do you think?

Autumn Cherry Tree
8x6 on stretched linen canvas

This is the first in a series of four trees that I will be painting. Tamara wants a tree painting in each of the for different seasons. This is an old gnarly cherry tree. The autumn one is finished, unless I think I want to tweak it some, which could happen. I am working on winter now. I think that is my favorite tree to paint, a bare winter tree. Coming up! And Snow!!

Natchez Trace Autumn - Spoken For - To my sister Dolly......

Natchez Trace Autumn
12x24 Oil on Canvas
Please visit my Etsy Shop HERE

This is a scene from the Old Natchez Trace Parkway in Middle Tennessee, very near to where my cousin Joyce Mullen lives and a little further from where my sister, Dolly Totty lives. This is such a beautiful part of the country.  I have revised this painting several times. I recently bought a tube of Cadmium Yellow oil paint and added some touches with it and some other colors in different areas. I am really liking this color. It is one that we will be using the in the workshop that I will be attending next week, with Kevin Menck. In fact, his color palette consists of 3 colors. Ultramarine, Cadmium Yellow and Cadmium Red, with Titanium white. This should be interesting. Since we will be painting plein air I need a special easel that make doing that much simpler and easier. Looking at the prices on those I have decided to make my own! I got the supplies last night. I think that took longer than it will to make it. I felt lost in that sea of bolts and nails. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Ocean Sunset - SOLD

Ocean Sunset
16x20 Oil on stretched canvas
This painting is SOLD
Please visit my Etsy Shop HERE

This painting is side stapled, but the side is painted a dark color matching the painting. I can't remember painting an ocean scene before this one. I love the ocean and I think this one has some pretty interesting wave action going. I hope you like it too. I did this painting about 2 years ago, but it has just been sitting with some other paintings waiting for a home.

Carriage Hill Farm - SOLD

Carriage Hill Farm
6x6 Oil on board
This painting is SOLD
Please visit my Etsy Shop HERE

This is a small painting that I tried to do very quickly. I am wanting to work on loosening up. This one is and I really enjoy doing it.  This is a scene at the Carriage Hill Farm in Ohio. It is a very old farm, still a working farm and is open to the public. It is a very nice place to go and see how things were done in days gone by. There is a nice lake and walking trails also.
