Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

Inspired by Christmas decoration and lighting in the garden, I felt like doing this lighted Reindeer. There is a lane in our neighborhood that does lots of christmas decorations and lighting. Its a very lively street and many people from far away neighborhoods come to visit here during christmas time. I took lots of pictures and when I was looking at pictures to paint, this red nosed reindeer captured my attention.

Holly Berries

'Tis the Season!!
Our block is all decorated with Christmas Lights and through the windows at night, one can see Christmas Tree decorated. Feels like a happy time and I cannot wait for the Holidays.
Talking about decorations Holly Berries are a MUST!! Inspired by decorations, here is my painting. The painting started out looking like this:

 As I worked through different stages and layers of paint, the final painting emerged here:

Laurel n Hardy Pumpkin Duo

For the 2014 Fall Art Show, I prepared 2 demo paintings. I chose pumpkin for demo - what could be a better subject for painting in Fall season !? A work in progress painting for both pumpkins are in separate blog posts.
They are put together below, but each one is a separate painting or can be framed together as a collage as it is shown below:

The scene is on Blue River in Colorado. This is a commission painting for her upcoming wedding!! It is the place where she got engaged.
It was fun and relaxing to paint this - my favorite time of the day - sunset, beautiful rocks, sound of river flowing, a bit chilly weather - perfect romantic atmosphere!!

Golden Sunset on the Pacific - SOLD

Now back to Oil Painting... I enjoyed the rhythm of sunset colors flowing on the board. And since this is a bigger piece, I got to use the biggest palette knife I have, which I rarely use! I used a photo reference, but but mostly picked colors from my imagination rather than trying to mix paints to match the photo reference.
Feeling happy with the result!
