Evening Glow

"Evening Glow"
10"x8" oil on panel

This is a diversion from my usual landscapes, but I wanted to give it a try.  I always admire the interior scenes done by other artists so I went around the house a few nights ago and tried to set up and capture scenes that might work.  

I have a couple more to paint, so please stay tuned!

"Henny Penny"

"Henny Penny"
12"x12" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

This colorful lady is not shouting impending doom like her namesake in the famous children's story but is simply saying "look at me" in all my multicolored glory!

There was considerable discussion as to whether she/he is a hen or rooster but I am the artist and I went with hen!

16"x16" oil on canvas

This purple cow is quite a departure for a painting topic for me.  But I must say I really like the way she turned out!  My photographer friend Jennifer graciously gave me the photo to use and I really let my creativity run with this one as far as the color goes.  Using various shades of purples and the complementary yellows really allow this one to stop you in your tracks when you first see it!  My sister-in-law Linda named her which is a good thing because I was going to go with the mundane "purple cow"!  Very original, don't you agree!!!
