Santa Ornament Painting 2016, Linda McCoy

I
This is my fourth ornament painting this year and as in the others, I put him in the holly bush in our yard. Yes, his beard got hopelessly tangled in the spikey holly leaves. I managed to get him out unscathed. In the bottom photo I listed the colors over the color swatch on the board for those interested in the palette I used. Most of these colors are Old Holland, the white is Blue Ridge, and the Radiant Turquoise is from Gamblin. I also tried a new medium which I loved, DeMayerne Medium, from Blue Ridge Artist Supply. This is just an ornament with a plastic face but there was lots of texture in the beard, so it was a lot of fun to paint. I'm working on two commissions so no posts for awhile. Happy Holidays!

I love chromatic greys, but honestly, some autumn days are just bright and gorgeous. This is a farm near where I live. The old oak was framing the view of the fields so beautifully it stopped me in my tracks.

The color is almost gone now, leaves are pouring from the trees.  However, a drive through the backroads last week-end was gorgeous. One of those days when the sun is bright in a cloudless sky. Many abandoned structures can be seen from the road as the fields have been cut, this one was settled in waiting for winter.

I have lots of Christmas ornaments, collected forever it seems. This one is fairly new, not sure where he came from, but nice and colorful. He looked happy sitting in my holly bush.

Yes, a little early, but to allow for drying time, I needed to begin in November. The ornament reflections are the tree line in my back yard. My holly bush is holding up well, the birds have yet to discover the delicious berries; but soon they will be gone.

November is here and it feels like summer. The 81 degree weather makes it feel like July. Soon the rest of leaves will fall and the cold and rain will come. I shall sit by the fireplace with a glass of wine and dream about the holidays.
