SunGlasses


SUNGLASSES
Nancy Herman
6" x 8"
oil on canvas board

Okay what's going on here?  In the last several paintings I have been trying something new.   What I am thinking about with these new paintings (I began the series with Winter Porch) is, "what can I leave out in order to enhance the 'feel' of the subject".  I am using juicy paint in solid areas, but that's another story.  In this painting a girl appears in the chaos of shapes coming out of a station.  She is wearing sunglasses against the sudden glare.  I want to integrate the figure in the composition without losing it as a focal point.

The beach and rocks at Montage near Laguna Beach is one of my favorite places. It does not matter if it is cloudy or sunny. It is just beautiful at any time. These paintings of my boys were inspired by a visit at sunset. Oil Painting on 5 x 7 panel.

"Hilltop Estate with Sunflowers" by Susan Benigni Landis (Susan B. Landis)

 
"Hilltop Estate with Sunflowers"
11x14, oil
 
 
I am so glad to create my first post as part of the Daily Painters of Pennsylvania. I've been involved in plein air and landscape painting for many years, although I enjoy a variety of subject matter. Often, I will do small plein air pen/ink/watercolor sketches and turn them into larger oil landscapes in the studio. This painting was done from such a sketch, on location in Italy, in the region of Umbria and reminds me of the warmth that has yet to come in Pennsylvania.

The Still Life by Julie Riker


 I am eager for outdoor painting weather but still not ready to venture outside.  The past week I have dedicated some days to practicing the still life in my studio.  I am working directly from a live setup (no photo) and completing each painting in one sitting.  My subject matter all came from a trip to the grocery store.  The tulips were a delight to have in the house and made their way into several paintings before they wilted.  Here are two of them.

"Walk through the dunes", pastel, Tatiana Myers.

"Walk through the dunes"
9 x 12" on Multimedia panel.

This painting brings back my memories of beautiful pink Dunes of Idaho.
Places where eye can wander without stopping on anything related to human civilization.
So much of space, so much of poetry.
One day I hope to be back there to see my friends
and all that incredible  humble beauty what is called "desert"


ATLANTIC SUNRISE By Cecelia Lyden

acrylic/canvas
12x16
www.cecelialyden.com

This is my final Forida painting for this winter season. It was done from photos taken from the balcony. The sunrises in the last four years have not been as colorful and glorious as the first couple of years we were here, but still, spectacular enough to photograph and paint. Sunrise skies are fleeting, but painting them is the way I capture them and hold them forever.

BEGONIA AND BIRDFEEDER


BEGONIA AND BIRDFEEDER
Nancy Herman
6" x 8"
oil on canvas board

Many years ago my husband took over the care of our houseplants.  It was one of those rare seamless transitions that sometimes happen in a marriage.  Ever since the scientist has been running the show the plants are thriving.  The 'artist' (me) had mixed results.  I love seeing the light through the leaves of this happy Begonia in the afternoon.  Out the window is a very old bird feeder which was here when we moved in 44 years ago.  The birds love it and we love watching them taking turns or fighting over the seeds.  It is winter sport for the old foggies.

WINTER PORCH by Nancy Herman


WINTER PORCH
Nancy Herman
18" x 24"
oil on canvas board

I listened to The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro while painting this.  It is a book that transports you to the world of myths while tugging at your conciousness with its very real allusions to the present day.  I think some of its magic is woven into my colors and shapes.

This is the largest painting I have done in several years.  It took many days and I am happy with the results but probably won't be painting large as a regular thing as I really like the idea of completing work in a day or two.  I also like sitting and working on something at the table where I can easily move the canvas around.  Another problem with a larger work is that I can't scan it into my computer but must take a picture of it.  Scanning really reproduces the work much better.  This piece actually has a lot of juicy paint which is completely lost in this reproduction.

"CHILDREN'S LAKE, BOILING SPRINGS IN AUTUMN" An Original Pastel Painting by Clare Klaum




I began this painting as a demo for American Craft Week in October on Children's Lake in Boling Springs.  I was going to do a Plein Air painting, however on the day of the event they were calling for an all day rain.  So, I went a few days earlier when it was sunny and took several photos.  The day of the event I worked from my photos under a canopy.  Only recently did I complete this painting.  The trees on the left are so spectacular in the fall and I have always wanted to do a painting from this view.  This painting is for sale.
