Original Art - Oil Painting - Cows and Bulls

Cows and Bulls - 30 in. x 40 in. Oil On Canvas


This is a fairly large painting 30in x 40in. When I found these cows (several are bulls) I was actually scouting around for something else, a stream or creek to paint. I was looking on the other side of the road and a large group of young cattle came running up to the fence. It was pretty obvious by the stern look on their faces that they weren't particularly excited to see me personally, it was my pickup truck parked near the gate which I'm certain usually means the food is about to be dropped into the feeders. But even though they weren't all that happy with my faux food delivery they posed very well for the painting I think.

Original Art - Oil Painting - Pears - Green Brown and Red

Pears - 30 in. x 40 in. Oil On Canvas


The subject is six pears of various colors - red, green, and brown.

This is a fairly large painting 30in x 40in. It is always interesting to me to paint larger than life items. Pears have been a favorite subject of mine for doing this.

The setup for this painting was particularly interesting to me because of the lighting and bright colors of the pairs. To me the painting has an element of drama.

Pears - Green Brown and Red is an original oil painting by Steven Allen Boggs. I hope that you enjoy it.

Oil Painting - Hay Bale

Hay Bale 8 in. x 10 in. Oil On Panel


This is a hay bale in a Tennessee farm field near my home. This is a common sight especially in the Fall in a significant part of the country. What attracted me most with the scene was the beige brown colors contrasted against the bright blue autumn sky.

I hope that you enjoy the painting.

Oil Painting - Cinderella Pumpkin and Squash

Cinderella Pumpkin And Squash 8 in. x 10 in. Oil On Panel


The subject is a group of pumpkins and squash.

This is a Cinderella pumpkin that is kind of hard to find where I live. I thought that the setup with all of the other colorful small pumpkins and fall squash made for an interesting color scheme. This painting makes me feel ready for Halloween and Thanksgiving.

I hope that you enjoy it.

Peonies In A Ball Jar

Peonies In A Jar 11 in. x 14 in. Oil on Canvas


The subject is three of my wife's Peonies. The jar is an old Ball Jar with the blue tint. It is actually one of the two jars that I use for water for my watercolors.

I've mentioned before in my painting descriptions that I typically paint still life chiaroscuro with the subject emerging from darkness but this year I've been somewhat enamored with painting a lot of things in full light. I really like the stark gray-white background with the detailed subject. I hope you like it.

Landscape - Field and Post

Field And Post 5 in. x 7 in. Watercolor on Paper


The subject is a gate and farm field in Gallatin, TN

The town that I live in has grown to the point that there isn't a lot of country left. But about 10 miles from me is the area surrounding Gallatin, TN. and there are still a lot of interesting things to see and paint.

This is a gate and field that caught my attention particularly because the grass had turned an interesting shade of yellowish green. It was a little early for that to happen but we didn't get a lot of rain in September. I found the scene to be pleasant and comforting. I hope that you enjoy it.

The painting is mounted on a white mat (11 x 14 in with mat) and is ready to frame. Or of course you can have it remounted.
