Make Hay While The Sun Shines

Make Hay While The Sun Shines - 16" X 20" - Oil on Canvas
My husband said the title of this painting to me the other day and inspired me to paint some hay bales. In the expressionistic style of Van Gogh, love the thick, luscious paint and moving it around the canvas. Really fun!

Center of Attention

Center of Attention - 6" X 6" Oil on Gessoboard panel
​Having fun doing quick paintings this week. Doing the 10-min apple exercises in the morning and then set up this still life and it took me 45 minutes. Not bad, it comes easier with practice! Wasn't sure if I wanted to sell this one, I LOVE the colors so much! It goes with my kitchen, but it gives me an excuse to paint another one!

Coneflower - Oil on Gessoboard Panel - 6" X 6"

Inspired by Van Gogh and post-impressionism. Love the german expressionists and fauvist like Gabrielle Munter and Kandinsky. But Van Gogh is my fav. From Doctor Who episode, Vincent and the Doctor, "He transformed the pain from his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world. No one had ever done it before and perhaps no one will again."

Cabbage Farm Somers Wisconsin

Cabbage Farm - Oil on Canvas - 16" X 20"
This is the first painting I've done after my beloved puppy, Maggie, passed. It's nice to get back into the swing after a long hiatus. It always makes me feel better. I just wanted to have fun and move paint around the canvas like Van Gogh did! It was such a joy and pleasure to create this piece and it only took me an hour! It practically painted itself. I heard that Van Gogh took all his pain and heartache and turned it into something beautiful on the canvas. That's how I felt. I wanted to create something beautiful.
