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 decided there was too much yellow in the water so here is where I have corrected it and like it much better.
24 X 36, snow in the mountains but beautiful weather down in the valleys. I think this is a beautiful time of the year out west. Fireplace is keeping the cabin warm and the lights from the fire make the house glow. A great place to just relax and paint or whatever makes you happy. No tv, no radio, no chaos in the world up here.
Each year I paint something for the zoo to help make money to care for animals. This is what I finished for this year. 24 X 36 "Walk With The Wild"
I love to paint and talk about art by Karen Johnson
