Rainbow Apples One and Two

Rainbow Apples One Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Rainbow Apples Two Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" Reposted on January 8, 2011. Aren't these fun? I painted the first one as I would have done an underpainting for a palette knife painting, but completed the masses. Then I wondered what would happen if I blended the colors, as though it were a "normal" still life painting. So I did a second one. The colors did muddy a bit, but it still looks neat. I was also thinking about what a great exercise (value study) this would be for an intermediate class in oils, which is something I'm thinking about for fall.

Shades of Green - NA

Shades of Green Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" Not available. Detail below. I did something a little different today. I haven't done this before, but have heard of painters who do. I used one of my Massachusetts photos on my computer screen to paint from. My laptop was far enough away that it almost felt like plein air painting, except of course, no changes in light and no bugs, but then no fresh air and bird sounds either. Another palette knife painting, which I am so enjoying. Nel http://nelseverydaypainting.blogspot.com/

Down By the Riverside - SOLD

Down by the Riverside Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD at $55.00 plus shipping. I really do enjoy the palette knife paintings for landscapes. Domething about all the control the slow work gives you, and how nicely the colors blend together. Nice! Nel http://nelseverydaypainting.blogspot.com/

Red Delicious - SOLD

Red Delcious Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Detail below. And a quick look at how one of these starts, below.
A palette knife painting of three red delicous apples. Looking at this post, though, I'm hmmmmming about maybe doing a brush painting of how one of these starts, and then not changing it much. Would be fun, I think. A bit of a modern art look to it.

Papa Berry Revised - SOLD

Papa Berry Revised Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping. This is an older painting, and I wondered why it never sold, and decided that maybe the white background was just too stark, so today instead of starting a new piece, I revised this one (and lowered the price) by changing the background. It is a little softer now, not quite so "barren." Thanks for looking. Nel http://nelseverydaypainting.blogspot.com/

Lavender Pansy - SOLD

Lavender Pansy
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

I had too much purple paint squeezed out and mixed from the triple set of pansies (on commission) to waste it, so another lavender pansy is up for grabs. Thanks for looking, and I hope you are all having a relaxing Memorial Day and have had a chance to remember those who serve, and those who gave their lives for our beloved country.

Pansy Set: Crimson Pansy - SOLD

Pansy Set: Crimson Pansy
Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 6" x 6" x 1.5"
SOLD.

This is the last of the gallery wrapped set of pansies in blues and purples. I thought the deeper maroony color would be good with the other two.

Cloud Study in Palette Knife

Cloud Study in Palette Knife
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8"
Available at $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping.
I needed a little change from all the pansies, which I love doing, but a change up is always good. So another palette knife painting, to see if I could do clouds. They really didn't work so well with the knife, but I suspect they could, so I'll give it another try sometime. Hope you are all having an enchanting Memorial Day weekend, with wonderful weather!
