Glass Ornament


6"X6" Oil on gallery wrapped stretched canvas. Just when I thought I was running out of inspiration, I went into the Garden Gate, a gift shop in Lebanon Ohio. (http://www.thegardengate.net/)I was looking for a gift for someone, but was really taken with these large handblown glass ornaments. The owner kindly let me take some photographs, although she may still be scratching her head. Everything in the shop was reflected in the glass and since they were transparent you could see through them as well. Interesting to paint. I bought two of these so I could get the color of the tinted glass right. I love this painting.
$100.00SOLD

Windblown




6"X6" Oil on gallery wrapped stretched canvas. Bree, sitting on a bale of hay at a farm in Lebanon, Ohio. She was just staring out into a field. The south sun provided a good light, and the wind was really whipping her hair around. I underpainted in permanent rose, cadmium yellow light to try and hold onto the sunlit feel of the day.

Listening

It's hard to sketch from a television program, but it can work out ok. You have to be really fast.
This was fun. I named it "Listening" because this was Whoopi's first few months on the view. She seemed to be taking it all in, sometimes in amazement I would guess, just trying to get a word in. I wondered what she was thinking.
I think she has brought a good balance to this show, she just has good common sense and her sense of humor is wonderful.

Apple in an Old Metal Bowl


6"X6" Oil on gallery wrapped stretched canvas. I picked up this old dented bowl in an antique store, I've had it so long I can't remember where. I always thought it would be fun to paint, all dented with great patina. This gray is permanent rose and Winsor green mixed with white. Since these colors are the colors for the bowl and apple, it created a nice harmony of color between the background and the subject. I lost a few of the edges, to give it a soft look. This painting is in a gallery, if you are interested in purchasing, please email me at tcoy1@msn.com SOLD

Fiestaware Creamer and Lemons









6" X 6" Oil on gallery wrapped stretched canvas. I like the shape of this little turquoise creamer. I started it a few weeks ago but put it aside in a corner of my studio. Good thing I painted the lemons in first, when I went back to the set up the lemons were mummified. I like the way light peeks through and around the lemons.

Until Next Summer, Yellow Dahlias




6"X6" Oil on Gallery wrapped stretched canvas. These are the last of the Dahlias, they were so pretty all summer, but the weather has turned cold. A little green hand blown glass vase. I resisted the urge to overpaint, and just let the underpainting of permanent rose, cadmium red and cadmium yellow do it's job. I worked on a very tightly rendered still life most of the day, didn't finish, so I used what paint was left on my palette for this little one.
