Still Lifes

New and old

Oil and watercolor paintings of flowers and other objects.  Still lifes are great for beginning artists to learn form and shape and how to handle their materials. I mostly paint still lifes when I'm forced indoors by the weather.
 
All sizes listed are of the actual painting size and do not include matting or framing where listed.  Please contact me directly for the exact size.  Shipping not included in price.

A Little Blue (on a Rainy Day)  oil on canvas, 24 x 36  $1750

One rainy weekend, I decided to try this still life arrangement.  I seem to be attracted to blues, especially cobalt blue, and have quite a collection.  These flowers were just what I could find after a stormy night.  Little did I know that it would actually take several weeks to complete this painting.  Check out the step by step on my blog. http://my90acres.com/artwork/a-little-blue-on-a-rainy-day-demo/

This was a challenge painting for a competition.  It had to include a box, cloth, a living or formerly living thing, a map, and something representing my county.  In this case, the box was the LLBean shoebox. The cloth was the background and the tablecloth, Deer skull and some bittersweet.  Map of an area park.  And a couple of postcards of my county.  Read more about this at my blog:  My90acres.com
