Small Floral Still Life, Pink Beauty 6x8", Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

I wanted to practice painting flowers, and found a reference in my files.

Purchase here

Trying hard to put into practice the techniques Elio Camacho tries to push into my head.  Brushwork, color relations, composition, the bride!  Not sure if I was successful, but, there is always tomorrow!

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Sea Glass by Filomena Booth Acrylic ~ 30" x 30" 
Sea Glass
30"x30"x1.5"
Acrylic on textured canvas

 

 
Sometimes, after a storm, the ocean gives up its treasures.  Ordinary glass that has been cast aside gets tumbled by sand and surf until it is polished into a precious gem, collected by lucky beach scavengers.

Sea Glass measures 30" x 30".  The surface of the canvas is heavily textured with rice paper, suggesting waves crashing on the shore.  The gallery wrap canvas is stretched on 1.5" deep wood bars.  The sides are finished in a shimmery gray/black  Micaceous Iron Oxide.  The painting is wired and ready to hang; framing is unnecessary.  It is signed on the side, dated and signed on the back.  A clear acrylic varnish has been applied to protect the painting from dust and UV rays.

A Certificate of Authenticity is included.

Florida Coastal Landscape, Seascape Painting "The Journey Home" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Abstract Landscape Painting, Textured Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 10x10x3" Oil

I found some square 3 inch deep canvases in my studio, and decided to play around with one.


purchase here


I tried several approaches, but nothing was working for me.  So, I just started playing with paint and my palette knife.  I was envisioning  a sunset over the landscape, choosing colors that "felt" right for me.



You can see how deep the canvas is in this pic.  I actually love these big clunky canvases on shelves rather than walls, and I like the feel of the rough clunky paint.

All in all, it was a fun painting day.

Painting on sale, Floral still life, daily painting, small oil painting, "Spring Flowers" by Carol Schiff, 8x10 Oil SOLD

An oldie, but a goodie!

SOLD


Tip for artists:  Instead of purchasing art books, I purchase paintings from my favorite artists.  I find it much more helpful for me to study technique and brushwork from an actual example instead of a book.  I have the added benefit of owning original artwork which I enjoy daily in my home.

Have a great day and take time to smell the roses.
