Palette Knife Still Life Painting, "Vase and Pears" 10x10"

$170 + 13



I painted this a few weeks ago at the Student Artist's Guild.  My paint group meets there every Monday morning.  It's in a very large loft area that is equiped with easels, many windows, props, stages for models and any kind of music you may want to hear.  It's really like an artist's dream come true!


On this day, I came equiped with three pears and was arranging lights to get the best shadows etc, when I spotted this large ceramic jar.  I was not too inspired by the pears, but the jar got me excited.
It's not always easy being creative.....

Pie on a Pedestal by Char Fitzpatrick | Dessert Still Life


26" x 22"
Oil

Pie on a Pedestal by Char Fitzpatrick

One of the things that most entranced me about painting this pie was the look of the reflections in the pie plate. The silver server was gratifying to render, its color was rather elusive.

Earth Child Geraniums
by Nancy Medina
14X14
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas




 Have you ever had one of those days in the studio where nothing you paint turns out right? I scumbled and wiped and mumbled through three canvases today before I finally settled on this geranium painting. I'm not sure why sometimes things flow, and sometimes it's like gears grinding. When the muses are singing, when things flow almost effortlessly onto the canvas, it's so nice, but it doesn't always happen, even when you've been painting every day for almost 7 years! Clearly, I need more chocolate in my diet or something....

Flower Painting | Floral Still Life | Small Oil Painting | Rhododendron by Carol Schiff 6x8 Oil

Still painting flowers!  Hope you have not tired of them yet.  I will try to break up the flower posts with other subject matter, just to keep you awake.

$95 + 6.50


This petite bouquet of rhododendron blossoms grew next to my house in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  I snipped a few and placed them in a jelly jar on my kitchen window sill.  I love the effect of the darkened flowers with the bright light flowing in behind them.



My goal with these little works is to keep strong basic shapes and let the viewer's eye fill in missing pieces.  As you can see from this photo, the paint is thick and the strokes are few.

Happy Morning to you!

Out of the Blue Delphiniums and Irises - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina Art

Out of the Blue Delphiniums and Iris
by Nancy Medina

Detail

20X20
Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas






Out of the Blue Delphiniums and Iris is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio, and the last hurrah of the batch of fresh Japanese iris and blue delphiniums. The little petals were making plopping noises the whole time I was painting them under the studio light, as they fell to the tabletop. They posed bravely and stood steadfastly under duress, and deserve to be remembered for all they gave in the name of color! We salute you little flowers. Oh my, it must be getting late, where did that come from?

It's likely because I am still so absolutely delighted we had a very special visitor to Flower Mound Studio today! Read more....

My Favorite Pink Recipe and Lifes a Breeze Peonies - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina Art

Life's a Breeze Peonies
by Nancy Medina
14X14
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas


Life's a Breeze Peonies is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio. Since the day was chilly and slightly wet out, the pugs stayed in the studio with me all day, hunkered down as if they lived in the Alaskan tundra. I love these cozy days in the studio, with all my office helpers snoring and tossing toys around while I work. I used one of my favorite recipes for pink in creating Lifes a Breeze, and here's how you mix it. Read more...

Garden Party Iris - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

http://nancymedina.fineartstudioonline.com/workszoom/1661499

 Garden Party Iris
by Nancy Medina
14X14
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas



 Garden Party Iris is the newest daily painting in Flower Mound Studio. One of my friends asked me if I paint every day. The answer is yes, unless I'm on an airplane on my way to teach a workshop, I paint every day. I've been painting every day for about 7 years now. I have a condition called the Daily Painters Compulsion. I'm pretty sure I should be on some sort of strong medication for it.

Today I went to the store for lemons and found yet another new vase. Then I saw these iris, and then the delphiniums, and then bunches and bunches of fresh peonies. Then I saw a really cute green roller bag I could use on the plane to stuff my treasures in for my trips to and from workshops. I won't tell you what my grocery bill ended up being, for that bag of lemons, but let's just say this is how things rapidly spiral out of control, when I'm allowed to go shopping with no adult supervision whatsoever.

SOLD


I picked these hydrangea from my garden last month and was compelled to paint them.  Hydrangea are probably my very favorite flowers and I love the summer months when my home is surrounded with their massive blooms.



I wanted to keep the painting as simple as the pitcher and mug.



For me, keeping it simple usually means "palette knife".

Enjoy your day!

Artichoke Giclee' Canvas Print, Still Life Giclee Canvas Print, Artichokes of Roma by Carol Schiff, daily painting

I have been very busy adding giclee' prints to my Etsy site.  It has given me an opportunity to review some of my sold paintings.  I have enjoyed visiting with these "old friends" and though I would post a few.

Today  I wanted to show you this painting from a trip I took to Roma a few years ago.  I rented an apartment in Campo di Fiori, which is historical piazza.  One morning, I was surprised to see the piazza had been turned into a farmer's market for the day.  These were real farmers selling their fresh, beautiful produce.  I took lots of photos and when I returned home this was the first painting I created.

purchase here
50+ with free shipping



The painting has sold, but I am happy to offer it as a giclee' canvas print in numerous sizes. If you look closely, you may be able to see a few Italian words that I hid in the painting.

The giclee's are high quality canvas and inks, professionally printed, gallery wrapped and finished with a semi-gloss protective coating.  They come to you ready to hang.  This piece is available from 8x10x1.5" to over 24x36x1.5".

Happy Day!

Violet Spotlight Sunflowers is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio, a departure from my French village series and return to one of my favorite subjects of all time! The chilly weather outside just seemed to call for warm colors on the canvas today. My next video shoot is coming up in just a few weeks - I'm thinking about geraniums as the subject, but haven't quite decided yet! I'll have to consult my director and her staff, once she's finished with her post second breakfast naptime break....
