Seascape Painting, Small Oil Painting, "The Green Sea" by Carol Schiff, 8x10x1.5"

Living on the coast of Florida, I love going to the beach for inspiration.

Purchase Here
150 + shipping

The mood and colors of the sea change drastically and often, so you never know which sea you will find.

Some days it is hot and hazy, or choppy or calm as a lake.  The color may be blue, green, turquoise or maybe muddy.  When a storm moves in, everything changes quickly.

The mood of my seascapes also change.  Some of  them are full of texture and color, some not so much.  This one was quite a challenge for me, I just couldn't mix the colors I wanted or make my brush behave.  It took a few tries, but eventually I created a painting I was happy with.

New Orleans Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

New Orleans Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
Day 1: Fabourg Marigny

Later that afternoon, the light had changed so much on our morning subjects, that some of us had to switch gears and look for a different idea. I loved this tangled oak tree and with the golden light coming on, I set to capturing its vibrant colors before the glow was gone. That evening we went out for a delicious Creole dinner of oysters, jambalaya, shrimp and grits, and other New Orleans favorites while swapping stories from the day and getting to know each other better.

8" x 10"  oil on panel

Sparklers was a demonstration painting at my last palette knife painting workshop of the year that was all about painting Christmas.  There's something satisfying in creating reflections of light on a curved surface.  Especially more challenging when using a palette knife.

Its time to wind down a little for Christmas and allow some rest and relaxation with friends and family. I wish you all a safe, healthy and happy holiday season.  I'm looking forward to many things in the new year - new paintings, new roads to travel, new challenges to solve and new friends to make. I hope you'll be among them and perhaps we'll meet at one of my 2015 art workshops.

You can find more of my work on my website Jeanette Jobson Fine Art, my blog, Illustrated Life and on Facebook and Twitter. I've just joined Instagram and am learning the curves.  You can find me there at jeanettejobson.

Still Life Bottle Painting, "Fluer de Lis" by Carol Schiff, 6x18x1.5" Oil

I like to collect bottles, so, it is a natural for me to do a still life bottle painting.  I like the fluer de lis on the bottle as well as the bold gold color.

 Painting this bottle was a challenge for me, but photographing the results was even more frustrating.  Try as I might, I could not get the correct background color to show.  The image above is much too blue while the one below seems more accurate.

Thank you for viewing my still life bottle painting today and please feel free to pin it if you so desire.

Blue Delphiniums and Peonies - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

Blue Delphiniums and Peonies
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Linen Panel

I have buckets and buckets of fresh flowers in the studio, but the delphiniums won out over the white tulips this evening, since they're hanging on by a .... petal! The tulips might give me one more day if I pour a little flower food in their water and whisper compliments into their little petal ears. The peonies - surprisingly - are still going strong! Although I did buy a new bundle the other day. These peonies may seem especially colorful, since Jill at the flower market told me they are from Chile. It's like a bilingual parade of blossoms around here! Ole!

Flower Painting, Floral Still Life, "Mixed Blessings" by Carol Schiff, 8x8x1.5 Oil SOLD

It's spring.....sigh!  The perfect time to paint flowers...........

I don't know about you, but I was beginning to think that winter would never go away!  I now what you're thinking...."she lives in Florida???)  Well. true, but even in Florida we have seen day after day of piles of snow and cars sliding off the road, although it was on the nightly news.  We feel for those of you who had to suffer through it first hand and we are happy that it is gone.

So lets all celebrate a new beginning.

Hope you pin it!

Touch of Winter White Tulips - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

Touch of Winter White Tulips
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Linen Panel

Touch of Winter White Tulips is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio today, I found a bundle of fresh tulips at the grocery store this morning, I should not have been grocery shopping, I was supposed to be at the gym, but the new gym my hubby and I belong to is not in the best part of town. Usually I feel pretty safe there, but this morning when I pulled up at 8:30 am, I knew I didn't want to walk through the crowd by the front door, so I kept right on going in my pug-mobile.

The life of an artist is not a dull one, the life of a small business owner is really a story about working seven days a week, but the beauty of this situation is twofold - you set your own hours, you get your personal tasks done, then you dive into your business (painting! *sound of harps*) with a sense of reward at the end of the day, with a bundle of white tulips you had not even realized you would be purchasing that day. All good things happen by design, I simply don't believe in accidents, do you?
