Evening Light on the Coquitlam River

Evening Light on the Coquitlam River 8″X10″ Oil on Canvas Board

I’ve started going down to the river at the end of my street. I thought I would try and capture the start of fall although we don’t get the spectacular colors. As the cottonwoods that line the banks of the river tend to not give a great show. This was painted a couple of weeks ago and there were only of few yellow leaves about. Also the river has been very shallow this year.

Artichoke in Bloom

Artichoke Flowers 8″x10″ Oil on Canvas Board

A couple of weeks ago I went down to the local community gardens and found this lovely artichoke in full bloom. I think as a rule they never get to this point as they are picked early for consumption. I never knew that they had such beautiful violet coloured blooms.

Four Onions and a Garlic

Four Onions and a Garlic 5″x7″ Oil on Board

I was studying about edges when I painted this and I was pretty happy with the results, having put in a good variety of them anyways. This is a very big study in fact and I’ve just begun my understanding of them.

Red Onions

Red Onions 6″x6″ Oil on Board

I apologize, this piece only has one more day at auction. I’ve been neglectful of posting. My only excuse is that I’ve been painting up a storm trying to take full advantage of our excellent weather.

Flowers in a Milk Bottle

Flowers in a Small Milk Bottle 8″x10″ Oil on Canvas Board

This piece I was trying to capture the stems in the bottle and water but the flowers in fact took the show. This was a small bouquet from the farmers’ market last week. This week I went to get more and there weren’t any available. I did however do a second of this bunch.

Flowers in a Milk Bottle #2 8″x10″ Oil on Board

This again I had my eye on the bottle, it’s reflections and the way the stems and water look in the clear glass. This one I feel was more successful in that regard. Both pieces are for sales.

Cobalt Blue Depression Glass S&P Shakers

Hydrangea and 30’s Salt & Pepper Shakers 6″x6″ Oil on Board

I seem to be on some kind of roll with 30’s depression glass. This set of salt and pepper shakers go by the name of ‘Hazel Atlas Modern Tone Cobalt Blue Salt and Pepper Shakers’. I will be doing more paintings with these and I seemed to need to do them a couple of times to really capture them with any ease. This painting I certainly struggled with but liked what I managed despite the challenges.

Jeannette Jadite Sugar Shaker

30’s Sugar Shaker #2 6″x6″ Oil on Board

As promised this was my second try at painting this Jadite sugar shaker and thought I did a little better job on the proportions generally. I’m liking doing the transparency of this depression glass.
