One-A-Day-Painting: Lemon Water

SOLD

Lemon water is my all-day-every-day go to for thirst quenching. It’s alkaline, good for your body, and tastes REFRESHING. Anyway, since it’s something I see and do so much I assumed it would make a great subject for my Daily Painting this weekend… enjoy!

One-a-day Painting: Strawberry

SOLD

My daughter and I picked some berries today. We planed these last year. She likes to water them, and eat them. I call her my fruit-itarian because 90% of her current diet is fruit. She’s 3 and very picky.

One-A-Day-Painting: Lavender

I have a very small lavender plant on my front porch and the flowers were finally dry enough to pick. They smell amazing. I’m not sure if theres any use in putting them in water, since they’re basically dried up, but it looks nice that way. Anyway, for my daily painting today, they were it!

One-A-Day-Painting: Pyrex Eggs

SOLD

So, I’m going to join the bandwagon here and start doing smaller, one-a-day paintings. Not that I’ll do one EVERY day, but I’ll at least finish it within a 24-hour period. For my first try at mundane, everyday objects, I chose my breakfast. Many do.

I have a love affair with eggies. I love eggs. I eat eggs every morning–two eggs and a slice of spelt toast. I like good eggs, too. Orange yolks, a hard thing to acquire from the grocery store brands, but, I’ve found a few that are good. One day I’ll have a coup. Just not now.

Yellow Boat

I’ve been wanting to paint a boat for a while. Being a part of the Justin Timberlake SNL “I’m in a boat” skit generation, that jingle is what I thought of most of the time, but the end result was a lot less comical and a lot more serene. The wax was great when it came to the water. The texture is deep.

Pears Conversating

SOLD

I don’t just paint horses! I was taken by these pears. I thought they looked so very human standing there, talking to each other as their stems loomed in conversation. I like how fruit can do this.

Before The Run

SOLD

I wanted to do a racing image because I have an uncle who really loves horse racing. I see a lot of running images, but wanted something with more thought to it. This is what I came up with.

Polo Rider #2

SOLD

This image makes me think of a dark, cozy library, or a cigar lounge. Something you’d see at the polo club. I’m very excited with how this turned out. I like the masculinity of the painting. I’m not a fan of using green, but forced myself to take the plunge.

Jumper 182

I painted from an actual photo on this one. I discovered Creative Commons on Flickr, basically photos licensed for adaptations such as paintings. It’s going to change my life as I am much better at painting from a photo rather than imagination. New doors have been opened!

I also see myself drifting more toward realism. Clearly this is definitely realism.
