" Fire and Ice"

I'm calling the horse  "Fire and Ice"  That's all I could think of when painting this picture. The glow and contrast really make an impact. However the camera picked up more of the yellow than what I see in the painting. WOW, this was allot of fun for me and will be painting more like this . The idea of colors that actually work off each other.

I really like the difference painting on a gesso board. A smooth feel and the way the paint mixes very fluid. This will probably not be my last painting on one. Texas is full of lakes and I heard there are very few that are natural. Even thought these are yellow weeds it really made a impact on the painting and  subtle  reflection in the water. Every color is in harmony a very very happy accident. What ya think?

This past weekend was the Tyler Azalea Trails  here in Texas. I'm part of a show in the historic part of town . The red brick district and as you make your way to see the beautiful flowers.You see these quaint 30's style homes. This gems was right across the street from the show so I set up my easel and here it is. I painted another one ( Look Back In my Blog ) called " Home Sweet Home .
The stories and the heritage of the homes are artistic and worthy to be painted.

This is such a amazing place to paint . However to paint a beach not full of fun and sun is just wrong. I do feel thought that there is such a great mood to capture in what normally is a very warm place in a cold setting. Winter doesn't take away from the natural beauty of the beach or any other scene. It would be awesome to do a summer scent of the same spot. Will keep you posted on that.

As I finished the painting "Golden Fields".  I turned 90 Degrees to my left and this beauty is what I painted that afternoon. The long shadows where covering the road I was on. There it was the remains of a beautiful  oak tree the colors where changing fast and the coolness of the day was showing up in the back ground and sky. This was a great day to paint allot of fun.

Heading out to paint and this path was cutting through acres of trees. All of a sudden this road turned into a beautiful open field and a sea of winter gold hits me. There was no mistaking I have found my spot. . And so there it is set up and started painting . What a great day and was able to create  two painting this is the first one . The only thing missing was wild life I could imagine quail or a deer or two. How about you what you think?

What a great idea to have flowers in a watering bucket. Art is one of those thing that brings out the creativity of peoples imagination and expression. I like the tin watering base and the challenge of painting it. The texture and colors of metal are great. Then when you add something so soft and beautiful as flowers even better. I try and have something that is organic, natural and man made in a still like.
 Light and shadows wrap around not only the cool cylinder below but also touches just the tips of the blossoms above.The change of coming season is right around the corner and I want to get a jump on the chance to paint it.

The only thing missing is the activity usually seen in the summer of boats sailing and children swimming and the sound of fun in the air.That's because this was done last month with the only thing green was the pine trees . Wanted a shot at painting the trees with there winter coats on and fall colors. Also had the pleasure of painting with a good friend on location that day. For an Artist it don't get any better than that.

Manhattan library was a very impressing sight and the Lion guarding the entrance really caught my eyes. Worked hard on the values and shadows on this one . Realized I never posted the finished product from an earlier post. I'm almost more interested in knowing what the young lady in the front is reading . What do you thing the title of her book is?

I'm seeing all these cylinders and squares and cones and just had to do it..Them the light hit the object and it started getting  allot  more  interesting . The sky was aglow and the cool background trees with the warm inviting foreground. It had to be painted and here is my attempt.

Hoe about something warm to look at . There's nothing wrong with winter and snow. Unless your like me who enjoys the summer. This may not be reality unless you dream about it. So this is the spot for me  for now.

Wanted to share something different and warmer, even thought this could be winter somewhere in the world just not here. I like the size of these 6 X 8 just small enough with room for allot of detail. This was a road along the Florida gulf  and all of a sudden this island of palms .The sun was setting and the sky was beautiful. Hope you take time to warm up to this one?

It seems like a simple enough design yet with the right lighting and colors there's just more to it.The sky says something with the non traditional colors yet inviting. The shadow of the foreword tree is cool and calm. The slight hint of the bright warm sun in the water. I don't know maybe I'm dreaming how does it strike you. Getting down to the last couple of painting for 2013 this is a small collector size 6 X 8.
