Colors of Spring

I am getting so excited here in Texas with all the trees getting buds on them. The flowers are starting to break through the dirt and sprigs are coming out on the rose bushes. To see the earth and the rebirth of all things new again. As an artist it is a feast for the eyes and really gets the juices flowing. May you be excited about Spring coming with all the colors and may you find your easel friendly.

Simple Rose

Sometimes the simple things in life are the best. This painting represents that. One little simple rose in a blue vase. Even though it is simple it does not take away from it's beauty and grace. May you enjoy one simple thing of life today and may you find your easel friendly.

Shake Things Up

A Dear Friend of mine gave me this beautiful antique salt shaker. The delicate roses on the little shaker bring us back to a more gentle time in life. Now in our modern time we feel that life is being shaken up. The economic times in which we live, the changing of our country and values. You might be experiencing some type of change in your life but my hope is that you can enjoy the beauty of the flowers in this painting and not let life shake you up. May your day be filled with the wonderful things of life and may you find your easel friendly.

The Practice Portrait

This painting is done as a practice piece so that I can work out the color zones of the painting. If you remember the first stage was the drawing now the practice painting. Now I examine what I would do different. Maybe a little more tilt to the head? Maybe a different color in the shading? Trying to be true to the personality of the person you are painting. May you enjoy helping me decide what needs to be done and may you find your easel friendly. I would appreciate any comments you have to help the painting progress.

Ever wonder how one of my portraits get started? Most of the time I prefer to do a drawing of the subject before I do a practice painting. The second stage is to do a practice painting to make sure that the colors and drawing are how the client would want the portrait to look. This is my way of preparing my mind to do the painting. Hope you enjoy seeing how a painting comes to life. May you enjoy and may you find your easel friendly.
