Original Oil Painting: Moo not Boo

Moo not Boo


8" x 10"
Painted on Ampersand Gessobord. 

I guess Halloween is still on my mind, hence the title: Moo not Boo.

 I have been thinking about doing a cow portrait for sometime. There are so many nice cow paintings out there.  I thought how could I express a different view of one?

 I am still working on creating my own style. I like using multiple colors to express a shape but so do other artist. What makes me think I am different?

Original Oil Painting Bee Balm Hummer

Bee Balm Hummer

12" x 12"
Painted on Ampersand Gessobord.

Since I only saw two hummingbirds this summer it took me awhile to get motivated to paint one. The bee balm flowers are from an old photo I took of my brother's bee balm flowers. His flowers always look so nice. 

I used a reference photo from Kathy Patterson. Thanks Kathy for a great reference photo. I never can get clear photos of those little guys. Here is Kathy's photo below.
