Fruit Still Life, Pears and Strawberries, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 8x10" Still Life

In a blatant attempt to get away from flower paintings, today I am posting a still life of fruit,

Purchase here

 I have been accused of having to many grayed down hues in my art, so recently, I an trying to focus on more vibrant color....no more pasty pastels!

detail
 I would like to report, that my tube of white paint is lasting longer, but it is too soon to tell.


Regardless, I am pleasently surprised with the color I achieved here, so hopefully I am on the right track.

Thanks for reading my blog today, and a special thank you to all who have supported my art and my blog with their purchases.

"It's Raining Outside" by Lynda Cookson

"It's Raining Outside" is an instant download image from an original oil painting on board by Lynda Cookson.

The original painting is for sale as well and can be found HERE : "It's Raining Outside"

Sitting in a hotel conservatory one rainy day in Co Galway (Connemara) Ireland, with the rain spattering loudly on the glass of the conservatory, the only happy subject to be painted was a stunning potted plant of white geraniums. This is it. It captures both the beauty of the flowers and the wet feeling of the rainy day.

LIVING IN MYSTERY
by Marion Hedger
Acrylic and mixed media on canvas
Finished with varnish and 
a layer of wax to give a nice sheen that addes additional depth.
80x80cm x4 cm deep

"The contrasting shapes and differences between the solid and ethereal areas can be used as an analogy of the differences in rock and sky or how life works, sometimes very sure and other times more uncertain perhaps when we are trying new things."

Cow Painting,Daily Painting, Domestic Animal Oil Painting

A client wanted a cow painting, for licensing purposes.  I usually do daily painting of still life or landscape, but I have to admit I enjoyed both the horse, they originally chose,  and this cow painting.


Purchase here
250 + shipping

I painted on Senso linen canvas.  I had a pad of the linen around for several years but didn't really know what to do with it.  I found it had a different texture than the cotton canvas I usually paint on, but once I got into the painting, it was fine.

My next problem was what to do with this unstretched painting.  After surveying several friends, I mounted it on a cradled wood panel.  I was told the perfect glue to use is YES GLUE available at craft stores.  I had some in my stash and I have to say it worked like a charm.  Then I trimmed the edges with a exacto knife and it turned out perfectly.  Now I can use the rest of my Senso linen canvas with no fear!

So, today I stretched my limits, both with the Senso canvas and the cow painting, and luckily both worked out for me!

This is a re-post, and the cow has been sold.  However, if you are interested, giclee prints are available on canvas and wood planks, in the size of your choice.  Contact me for pricing.

Seascape Oil Painting, Ocean Wave, Caribbean Seascape, 20x24" Oil on Canvas

Lately, I have been painting seascapes.  I always love painting and viewing seascapes.  It's almost as soothing to me as a trip to the beach.

SOLD
 Of course, the first step for me IS a trip to the beach.  I  pick a day with my trusty camera and head for the sand.  I count myself lucky if I get a few interesting shots.

detail
For this painting, I used images from a trip to Barbados.




 It transports me to the sea each time I see it.
Isn't art wonderful?!

Thanks for viewing my art today.

Large shapes and going larger

BREATHING MOUNTAIN
by Marion Hedger
80X80cm (32x32inch) on 4cm deep box canvas
Acrylic and mixed media

I am gradually adding my new paintings exhibited at the Surrey Contemporary Art Fair. This is one of the larger ones at 80x80cm. I have to be practical when working larger to make sure the painting doesn't exceed 80cm so it can fit in the car. I can go a little longer, so I might try a few longer ones for the next art fair.

In this painting I was trying to move towards using larger blocks of colour, with good contrast between the lighter areas and darks. The jewel colours of turquoise and orange intially draw your eye in but the sublety in the darks as well as the whites, keep you entertained. Here are some close-ups to show you the details:

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)
