"A Little Bit Of "Country" oil on canvas, 12x16

I'm painting on 12x16 canvases now, just to utilize the big batch of "Fredric's/Blue labels. To say it's not my favorite , to say the least !!! Even after applying a coat of gesso, it's  just not the same  as my favorite linen . Technically speaking , the surface is as important as oil paint quality and the brushes quality. In order to avoid lot's of frustration and grief stick with something you are familiar and what is work best for your own painting style . Here is another piece for my upcoming show on Vashon.
I started this still life while teaching the class. My talented student Rachel was up to a great start. I have to admit I liked her composition better. We'll see how she applied all the knowledge from my classes to finish this still life from the reference photo .

"WINTER CHERRIES" 10x10 oil on linen

I didn't blog for 2 weeks . But  "Holidays fever" is here again and life taking on crazy, rapid, happy turns .
I'm wondering why it spins faster and faster every year , why time seems like flying with a double speed compare to our Youth , when we were so innocent and unaware of social networking, Ipads/pones/tunes  or what ever I-else. We had no idea about joy of wasting time on Facebook, Tweeter, LinkedIn and streaming any movie right at the  convenience of your cosy PJ.
Anyway - that's why I've never noticed those 2 weeks flu as a wild mosquito right by my nose.
 I wasn't creatively procrastinating , I was creatively discovering a beauty of painting all night . I was very productive because of that discovery , and its aslo reflected on the amount of sales.
So I'll try to catch up and will post all the paintings from my all-nighters ..Here we go!

this piece is for sale of course . $ 300.00 and free shipping
