Although I usually paint from photos, this is painting was done from a printed page a friend brought me that she found on the internet. I don't know who the original artist is, but I sure wish that I could take a lesson from them. My interpretation is no where near as wonderful as the original. I can only hope to be as good a painter as the artist who did this little bird originally. Because this is a reproduction of another artist's work it is not for sale. This is just a study for me to learn from. I painted this in oil on a 9" x 12" page from a canvas pad. I will probably frame it and hang it in one of the rooms of my Bed and Bath which I am redecorating.
I found the cutest little bluebird photo and decided to do a theme of different cute little birds for each of the four rooms. I am sure that is why my friend brought me this little bird to paint. I just hope that the guests I have at the b&b will like my new theme as well.

This is the same rose I had painted earlier in a deep red. I decided to try it in brighter reds this time. The photo does not do it justice as you can't see all of the detail and color variation that is in the actual painting. The deep red one is now sold. I hope this one will sell as well. It is a 10" x 10" oil on canvas panel. If you would like to purchase this painting email me at email@example.com with "red rose painting" as the subject of your email.

Creating portrait sculptures for individuals by commission is what has been the mainstay of my art career for the past seventeen to eighteen years. With the economy the way it is right now I find myself doing more painting than sculpting lately. I do have a portrait sculture of a child in process at the moment, so I will post a picture of it soon. Okay, enough posting for today. I have to go paint now!
If you are interested in having a portrait sculpture done email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "portrait sculpture" as the subject of your email.

Being the Texan that he is, this is one of my husbands favorite paintings. (I can never seem to do enough western style art for him). Sunsets with the forground subject in shadow is a favorite thing for me to paint. It turned out pretty good. I may spend a little more time with this type of theme in the coming weeks.
oil on 11" x 14" canvas panel $65.00. To purchase email me at email@example.com.
