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.
