Pumpkin

Pumpkin 11″ x 14″

It’s October, which means that pumpkin spice is everywhere – even here! You can find this 11″ x 14″ Pumpkin for auction on Daily Paintworks. Auction open for 7 days.

Deer Foraging

I thought this would be appropriate for the season, as it’s based on a photo from last spring in Alberta. Taken just before they all ran for the trees.

Happy

Happy (8″ x 8″)

It was inevitable that I would eventually work my way around to painting a pig. I think I will have to do another one that focuses more closely on the face. There is so much expression that I would like to capture, and I’m not sure that I’ve got it here. Stay tuned.

The Flock

The Flock 20″ x 16″

I actually had to look up whether a group of sheep is called a herd or a flock. Flock it is!

A Mix of Sun and Clouds

I decided to do a quick landscape – no cows, chickens or other animals in this one. I wanted the focus to be on the dramatic sky and huge puffy clouds. 

Bart

Bart 14″ x 11″

“Cow in a Field” is a really boring name for a painting, so I’ll call him Bart.

Daisy the Cow

I think these cows are cropping up in my paintings because of a recent trip to Alberta – a reminder of a lazy drive in the country on a sunny day.    

Boy in the Meadow

The boy in this meadow is my son. This is how the meadow looks in the spring with lupines and buttercups blooming. It’s full of birds, insects and frogs, which makes it one of his favourite places.

I had some trouble with this painting. It is an overcast day and the lighting is very flat. I am used to adding dimension with highlights and shadows, but in this picture they are very subtle. I’m not sure I succeeded with this painting – something to keep working on I guess.
