Original Oil Painting Cast Iron Tea Pot


Cast Iron Teapot

9" x 12"

Sold

I borrowed this black iron teapot from my brother. He uses this teapot in the winters to heat tea on his cast iron stove. That little stove does a great job heating up his three season room and also makes a great cup of tea. Thanks Gary for letting me borrow the teapot.

Original Oil Painting Cavalier Spaniel Tuck




Tuck
(nickname: Tuckaroo)

10" x 10"
Painted on gesso panel.

This is a portrait of my dog, Tuck. Tuck gives me this stare when he is waiting for me to finish cleaning up my paint area. He knows soon it will be his time to get my attention and with luck a walk will soon follow. Unfortunately it has been very cold this November so playing fetch in the house will be the order of the day.

Original Oil Painting Pomegranate and Apple



Pomegranate and Apple

9" x 12"
Painted on gesso panel.

This is my first attempt at painting a pomegranate. It was easier to get the seeds out than to paint them. Those shinning little seeds are yummy! I like my in yogurt, so sweet and good for you.

Original Oil Painting Copper Bowl with Fruit


Copper Bowl with Fruit

SOLD

10" x 10"
Painted on gesso panel.

This is the small copper bowl that came with the copper cup I painted below. This one had a lot more shine to it which made it easier to paint. To my surprise the other items were more of a challenge.

Original Oil Painting Copper Challenge



Copper Challenge
Sold

10" x 10"
Painted on gesso panel.

I painted this for DPW weekly challenge which was to paint something copper.  I was lucky enough to have a brother who had a small copper cup that my dad used to put nail files and toe nail clippers in. It was very old and kind of dull. To make it sparkle a little more I added the Christmas bulbs and bow and enhance the color reflections I saw in the cup. Copper was quite a challenge. I will have to try to fine more copper items to paint that are a bit more reflective.
