Flower Still Life, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil on Panel, Palette Knife Painting

Today I painted a flower.

Purchase Here

I have been struggling with my painting, for a full year now.  I have never been able to establish a routine in the studio, since we packed our bags, and moved to the mountains.  I thought I was over painting.  I found no joy in it.  In fact, everything I struggled to paint, seemed more like a duty and I found it frustrating.

But now, we have been back at the beach for three months.  It took awhile. First the holidays got in the way, but after the first of the year, I started to regain my love of spending my days in the studio. 

Maybe it was the inspiration of the long walks on the beach, or maybe  it was being back with my art buddies again.  Whatever..........I am thrilled and anxious to smear paint across canvas again!



It is such a JOY!!!

Turquoise Wave, Original Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 14x18" Oil on Canvas

It's almost time for us to return to the mountains, so I am trying to get in as many walks on the beach, while we are still here in Florida.  I always take my phone and always take many photos on these walks.

Purchase Here

I'm REALLY going to miss those walks!!

Many artists paint seascapes from life, but, it always blows my brain!  All those waves coming in, color changes......etc.  How do they do it?  It is more than I can comprehend!

Thanks for reading my blog today.

"Red Poppy" by Lynda Cookson

I just put this one up today. The Poppy Collection I did a couple of years ago, whilst working towards a commission painting, remain one of my favourites. They usually pop up where their scarlet petals show up best, in fields of Lavender or Corn. This is what google has to say about what Poppies represent:

"In the spring of 1915, shortly after losing a friend in Ypres, a Canadian doctor, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was inspired by the sight of poppies growing in battle-scarred fields to write a now famous poem called 'In Flanders Fields'. After the First World War, the poppy was adopted as a symbol ofRemembrance."

This painting is simply called "Red Poppy" and is a palette knife painting (what else if from me! LOL) on paper, with a white matt board. It's set against a creamy yellow background as if waving around happily in a field of corn.

The unframed measurements are Width 12" by Height 11" (or Width 30 cm x Height 28 cms)

"Daisies" by Lynda Cookson

Home and Office Wall Decor (in other words, me and my family team!) are now offering original paintings on our new Etsy Storefront, starting off with Stock Clearance prices. The paintings will be shipped unframed as a further cost saver and shipping is included in the price.

I'm loving trawling through all my images, both photographic and paintings, as I upload them to my various Etsy storefronts ... and, after feeling a little stale for a few months, my fingers are starting to itch again with the anticipation of painting fresh works.

"Daisies" is a medium size, palette knife, oil painting with all the depth and energy you would expect from this medium and technique. Her vibrance speaks for itself :-)

Not shown in the image below, is the monogram signature in the bottom right hand corner of the painting. Here you can see my logo watermark. The original painting has my monogram etched into the paint.

"A Hint of Lace" by Lynda Cookson

I'm chuckling to myself this morning working with this image. Somehow my brain thought there was a song from the rock 'n roll era with the words "A hint of lace" in the lyrics but a search on google didn't bring any such song up ... so I am left to surmise that it is just another case of me singing heartily but using the wrong words in a song! Sigh .... I think we've all done that!

This is a mixed media painting in oil, with the background produced using palette knife, a collage of pink tissue paper and black lace, and what I felt to be the lyrics of that elusive (non-existent? LOL) song represented by dancing lines of gold liner paint.

"A Hint of Lace" is for sale as an original painting - CLICK HERE
and will soon be available as an instant image download .... I'll let you know when.

Playing with Paint, Abstract Oil Painting, 8x8x3" Original Oil, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting

Today is gray, foggy and damp, so I decided to post the most fun painting I could find.


Purchase here




You know how I love color and texture and this little painting has it all.

I painted it on a 8x8x3" canvas, so even the shape is unique.  It's chunky and cute and it resides on a bookshelf , where it brightens the whole room.  I cannot help but smile each time I look at it.

The canvas was a mistake.  I did not realize how deep it was when I ordered it.  What could I possibly do with it?  Well, for this painting, I think it is perfect!

Have a fantastic day!

Floral Still Life Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Pink Glory", 6x8" Oil on Panel

I have been doing a few palette knife paintings, recently.

Purchase Here
I think, I could be a much better artist, if I were to limit my techniques and subject matter to one type, but I also think that would be rather boring!

Variety of the spice of life......right?

I am fortunate and do not have to financially support myself, with my art, so I can indulge myself, in this way.  Others are not.  Still others do not have the desire to jump around, but are focused totally on one technique or subject.

Is there a right or wrong?

Thanks for viewing my art today.

"Blossoms" by Paula Formanek

What's on My Easel?? ...
Inspired by a beautiful apple tree in my backyard, I actually started this one last Spring but the thick 🎨paint🎨 took a long time to 'dry' ... I got back to it a few days ago, before I picked up the flu. Just looking at it makes me feel better ... I will call it 'Blossoms', thick oil with knife impasto on canvas, still a WIP ...

Maple Seed

I painted this a few years ago as a demonstration.  I was looking through my archives to find a painting and saw this in the files so I thought to post it to Facebook.  I loved how the colors worked on this little painting, as well as the knife strokes.
