Spode, Plain and Simple

Spode, Plain and Simple
8"x10" oil on linen, gallery wrap...framing optional

I do love to paint Spode and grapes for that matter.
I don't know if it shows, but there is a glow of the grape color throughout.
Tried to keep the composition simple.

Lavender and Porcelain

Lavender and Porcelain
5"x7" oil on linen, gallery wrap...framing optional
Lavender from the garden paired with a dainty
porcelain vase.
I changed the background a couple of times till I settled on this
soft green and lavender.
Lots of color in the white cloth from the reflective light.

Burled Wood Box and Orchid

Burled Wood Box and Orchid
8"x10" oil on linen, gallery wrap...framing otional
Great warm colors and subtle lighting.
I enjoyed painting this because it gives the look
Ralph Lauren my favorite designer.
I never paint things to "go" with decor.
I just paint things I like and hope others like them too.
It's more about how light falls across the surface
and the way colors effect each other.
Trying to make cloth look like cloth, wood look like wood, etc.
It's always a challenge that never gets boring.

Hydrangea and Ribbon

Hydrangea and Ribbon
5"x7" oil on linen, gallery wrap
The Blue Nikko has turned colors due to cooler nights.
I love this bush and it's changes.
First it starts out a soft green then goes to near cobalt blue.
As the nights get cooler it turns back to the soft green with a bit of burgundy.
If left on the bush the colder it gets the deeper the burgundy.

Moody Blues, Hydrangea


Moody Blues, Hydrangea
Copyright of the artist 2007
As you can probably tell, blue is my favorite color.
This hydrangea is growing on the side of my house
and is a delight every summer.

The painting is a study of blues and the different moods
created by shadow and light.
