Only had time for a small oil painting today. I was out viewing the beautiful aspens for half the day. I have had some requests for more sheep paintings... so here is the first one. Contact me to purchase.
My zinnia's are mostly frost bitten now. A few of them struggle onward in these warmer days, so I thought I should paint them quickly. I did take lots of photos for this winter but thought a couple small paintings today would keep them fresh in my mind. You can purchase these paintings on my Etsy site.
Here is my second painting. There are some interesting purple red colors in some of these zinnias. I was trying to capture that color... but think nature does it best.
Back in the studio again after my summer show season. It was a brisk day today with a lot of wind. I did manage to get a couple photos of some late summer flowers to paint. Fall looks like it has arrived. These reference photos are precious and will keep me painting all winter. Visit my website to purchase this painting.
