Original Oil Painting Classic Peonies

Classic Peonies

16" x  20"
Painted on stretch linen

This is my last painting assignment for Elizabeth Robbins' online course. The assignment was silver, peony and "S" composition. Elizabeth is an excellent teacher. I encourage anyone who likes to paint flowers to look her up. She won't be hard to find. Her paintings are well known. 

My goal was to concentrate on a softer looking flower approach and to leave background items less detailed. I love her paintings and was so excited to hear that she has a six month online course. I will send this to her and hope I do not have to make major changes. Wish me luck.

Original Oil Painting Spring Trumpets Two

Spring Trumpets Two
12" x  12"
Painted on gessobord. 

A few years ago I painted a similar painting called Spring Trumpets. It was so much fun to paint and since it sold I needed to paint another. Spring Trumpet is posted below.
