Flower Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Expressionist Art, Print on Canvas

I went to Biltmore Gardens a few weeks ago, and the conservatory was bursting with tulips, daffodil, hyacinth and other spring favorites.  I was so inspired!

Purchase here
This one one of three paintings I did with this color combination, a favorite of the Biltmore gardeners.

Living in Florida for 40 years, I'm am enjoying my first spring in the Blue Ridge Mountains, seeing many of the flowers I remember as a child.  I am excited to see even more as the season turns to summer.  Have my fingers crossed that I will find lilac in my neighborhood.

More to come.....thanks for ready my blog today.

Pineapple Still Life Painting, Best Deal, 14x18" Painting with Frame, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

Since moving (and downsizing) I'm trying to squeeze into a much small studio, with almost no storage space.


Purchase here

My solution......start a new section on my Etsy store, entitled "Best Deal".  I plan to feature a specific artwork, at a great price, and hopefully, my inventory will become more manageable.

Today, I am featuring this pineapple and mango  oil painting, in a custom frame.  The piece is framed to 19x23".  The painting shows the fruit sitting on glass, and may be purchased with or without the frame.

Marketing, in my opinion, is one of the hardest parts of being an artist.  I don't know any artists who enjoy this part of the game. I will let you know how this idea works for me.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Pear and Plum Still Life, Palette Knife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil on canvas panel, sold

Have not done a still life, or a palette knife painting for a while, so this one was in my comfort zone.

SOLD

I naturally tend to lean towards cool colors, so I had fun working all my favorite color relationships.



This scene is a repaint, from years ago.  I couldn't find the original photograph, but I did have a photo of the first painting, so I used that as a guide.  The first painting was done with a brush, which is why I decided to mix it up a little, by using a palette knife this time around.

Hope you enjoy it!

Mountain Wildflowers, Floral Landscape, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 8x6" Oil on Panel SOLD

Last fall, we took a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  It was a crisp, sunny day and my camera was busy clicking away.

SOLD



It's hard to go wrong with a blue and yellow painting.....it just shouts "Cheerful".  The background was painted  with a brush, but I used a palette knife on the flowers and grasses.  That's when it started to be really fun!

I feel like I was able to capture the feel of the day......I hope it made you smile!

Alligator Painting, Wildlife Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil on Panel SOLD

These guys are not uncommon sights in Florida.  Sometimes you see them snoozing in the sun next to a road.  Golfer's here usually have a scary encounter to tell.

SOLD
This was my third attempt to paint this fellow.  I had difficulty getting the drawing correct, as well as the color.  The image I worked from was not exciting. Eventually, I think I worked it out.

Go gators!

Wildflower Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Floral Landscape, 6x8" Oil on Panel

Today's painting is a memory of last summer.

Purchase here

As I was painting, looking out my window at a cold, gray day, with snow spitting now and then, I REALLY wanted to remember last summer!  Did I question my decision to leave the beaches of Florida, for the the mountains of North Carolina?    You betcha!



But, then I reminded myself.....life is all about choices.  I don't care for cold weather, but I enjoy bundling up in warm sweaters and furry boots.  After 40 years in Florida, I look forward to the change of scenery and seasons.

No, I won't miss the sweltering summers and fury of hurricanes.  I look forward to spending the winter months on the beaches....the best of both worlds.

Find beauty and peace wherever you can.

Small Oil Seascape, Palette Knife Painting, Daily Painting Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Beach Scene

I may have left Florida behind, bu it is still on my mind.  I look forward to spending time on the beach this winter.

Purchase here

This piece was painted, from my memories of days on the beach, the air full of salt spray.  

I painted with a palette knife, because, you all know how much I admire texture in my work.




I have several seascapes in my new Asheville home........it keeps me from getting homesick!  ACTUALLY, I love it here in the mountains.  I now feel I have the best of both worlds.  Mountains in the spring, summer and fall, and the beach in the winter.  Looking forward to being a "snow bird".

Thanks for visiting today.

Flower Painting, Sunflower Painting, Small Oil Painting, 12x16" Original Floral

Remember summer?  Now that I have moved, after living in Florida for 40 years, winter has slapped me in the face!  Even though it has been a very mild February, I long for the warmth of the sun.


Purchase here

I think this is an interesting viewpoint, looking up at a sunflower that was towering over me.

If you ever visit Waynesville, NC, look for Love Lane Flower Farm, where you can pick your flowers fresh.  They supply everything you need and you pay on the honor system.  How cool is that?  

Hope you have a sunny day.

Cheers,

Carol

Abstract Painting, Small Abstract, Alcohol Inks, Experimenting



I am finally writing a post in my new home!  It has been a long and stressful journey, from Melbourne, FL to Asheville NC.  I know I am home, because I am finally painting, posting and doing all those art related activities that were a part of my life for 25 years.  Welcome home!

This is an experiment with alcohol inks.  I purchased the inks, as a change from my oils, but my move has gotten in the way of experimenting with them.  I did find this little sample to be interesting and have lots of ideas on ways to use them in the future.  Have you tried them?  I am open to suggestions and techniques.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Small Landscape Painting, Cabin in the Woods, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" oil on panel

This is a small painting I did last fall.  We have moved from Florida to North Carolina, and this one was overlooked in the craziness of an interstate move.   Deep breath......it is all over now!

Purchase here

I often passed this cabin, on my daily walks.  I am always inspired by the beauty surrounding me during my walks.  The cabin looked so charming, nestled in the trees, with spots of sunlight hitting it.  

This piece is a combination of brush and palette knife.

I have gone without painting for several months due to my move.  I am anxious to return to my new (small) studio, and begin this new version of my daily routine.  I hope I remember how to paint!

Thanks for viewing!

Charcoal Line Drawings on Monoprints by Lynda Cookson

I have been having fun sorting paintings from my stock. They've been packed away for a while and are only being brought out now for some Open Studio days during summer.

Here's a rather different collection of 4 Charcoal Line Drawings on Original Abstract Monoprints.

During a couple of life drawing classes a few years back I found two of the models to be rather grumpy in temperament which put me off formal drawings. Instead I produced comical line drawings to counter their grumpiness. Later I repeated the ones I liked onto original abstract monoprints.

Wildlife Painting, Tropical Fish Painting, Palette Knife Painting, 9x12x.75" Oil

While unpacking, after moving from Florida to North Carolina, I found a few paintings that were never posted.

This one was inspired by a trip to Key Largo, a few years ago.  One of the highlights of the trip, was a cruise to the coral reefs.

Purchase here
I enjoy painting water with a palette knife and I love texture in a painting.  This piece has both.

Enjoy!
