Cookie Cutters

This is my entry for the Weekly Challenge on Daily Paintworks.  I have a cupboard stuffed with kitchen gadgets, including a basket of cookie cutters.  Using the painting knife on a still life with limited color choices was very challenging.

Summer Statis

Another Maine field painting!!  This time painted with liberal use of my knife.  A real pleasure to paint with 6 more weeks of winter (so they say!)  I'm almost looking forward to Mud Season.

Bucksport Maine, Side Road

Part of Maine's Route 1 has been chosen for the month of May as the place of choice for the Virtual Paintout.  I submitted this to the Virtual Paintout yesterday, May 6 and included the Google Map address.  Most of the painting was accomplished with palette knives which gives it a plein air look.  Reading Kevin Macpherson's book, 'Landscape Painting Inside & Out' has been quite refreshing after painting so many still life pieces this winter.

Carrer Major, Majorca

Carrer Major, Majorca is my second entry for The Virtual Paintout this month.  I painted this in oil on a Winsor & Newton canvas panel.  It measures 8x10 inches.

'Baking Bread'

I baked this loaf last week and liked the darkness of the oven's interior against the lightness of the bread.  It is painted on a small 5"x7" linen panel.

Summer Garden

I liked the new green tomatoes next to the marigolds.  The rich dark browns of the earth really sets off the bright colors.

Asilomar Afternoon

This is my entry for the Virtual Paintout, August 2015.

I googled all over Monterey, California and found this gorgeous spot, Asilomar State Beach.

The unframed painting measures 5" x 7" and is painted in oil on a linen panel.  I used my knife more than usual and was delighted with the results.
