Don't know why but I couldn't get this one to where I liked it until yesterday. This 30 X 30 is an oil painting on stretched canvas. Typical Iowa farm animal.
Continuing with the ladies series, I decided to try to be more loose in my colors and brush strokes. I found if I can keep that attitude I really like the outcome. This 20" X 24" oil on stretched canvas is my latest one.
I find as I age my hand is not steady and with this style I can utilize the shakes. This was fun and no real straight lines to paint. Colorful and eye catching. Give me your feed back please and tell me if I am correct in my feelings!
Since my last post I have been working on a series of paintings using mostly black, white, and red. These are of ladies and can put a pop into any room. These are fun to do, some are very simple and some more detailed. Working on the forth and will post pic in a couple days. First is a 20 X 20" other two are 8 X 10's
Just finished "Riding the Dusty Range" a framed 12 X 16 oil and acrylic
Country Sunset a framed 11 X 14 in oils
Just finished this sunset of a snowy timber area. Love the colors. This is a framed painting in oils. Ready to hang. Check it out on my website under Country Life section www.inspiredartbyk.com
Here is one of the smaller ones I am working on. Have a couple more sketched out but not started. This 12 X 16 is just started in acrylics and will get over painted in oils before finished. A long way to go.
Trying to get ready for the Casino display and shows, I have decided to start painting some 20 X 24 and down to 8 X 10 so I have some that will fit in a lot more places. I tend to paint large and that take a special place to hang it. I really like to paint the large pieces but will see how this goes. So far I am taking as long on a small one as a large one and that seems crazy. I purchased several 20 X 24 and 8 X 10 frames to encourage myself to paint smaller! Thought maybe looking at that investment just sitting there might encourage me.
What a way to make my brain work. Hope it works. Anyone with ideas? I seem to be lost!!!!!
30 X 30 painting of a country scene, stone bridge, church, and stream. Love to do these country paintings. My chimney on the last painting turned out so well thought I would try to do an old fashioned stone bridge for travel to church. Nestled in the valley, the sun has just risen and the fog has not completely lifted. Gives a clean morning light effect. This is just the beginning, some areas painted some just sketched in.
I love to paint and talk about art by Karen Johnson
