Paintbrush Hillside oil 20" x 10"
This is a painting from Rainier National Park. The Indian Paintbrush had started to bloom and looking up this hillside gave a lovely path of red through deep greens. It's one of my favorite color schemes....
1. I'd like to reply directly to blog comments, but often find that Blogger won't post my comment. Sometimes it works out, but usually my reply comment disappears! I have looked at settings but can't seem to figure out what I'm missing.
2. I used to get an email notification that someone has made a blog comment. But in the last several months it rarely happens. I typically have to go back and check my last post to see if anyone has left a comment.
Thank you! Pin It

Chicken And Fruit oil 10" x 8"
I almost titled this Lemon Chicken, but that's one of our 'go to' dinners, and it didn't seem very kind to the chicken! Chicken with Fruit still sounds like a recipe but......oh well...ii wasn't too creative with a title on this one.
This is from late fall, just before we started getting snow in November. There is a small farm nearby where I went to take some photos of chickens, goats and whatever was scratching around the yard. They had thrown a lot of lemons and oranges onto the ground for all their menagerie, and it made the whole scene extra colorful.

Wenatchee Pink Lady Apples, oil 12" x 9"
In deciding on an uplifting subject with great color to play with, I chose a favorite subject. Any fruit on a vines or trees always appeals to me. My painting process was to establish a brush drawing of umber and red to establish values and basic shapes. Then, started laying in deep greens and reds. I went for establishing the hot spots of pure color next and lightened up gradually into the highlights.
