Blue vase with leaves

 Currently this piece is untitled
Oil on 12" x 16" wrapped canvas $400.00

I could use a bit of help naming this one, when setting this one up I first was thinking the glass with red juice in it would be the focus but then realized the focus should be the little decorative blue vase, here is a case where a cool colour trumps a warm colour by virtue of intensity and that is what this painting is about.

Enjoy, and comments are welcome. visit me website to view more of my work.

Tarnished

Title: Tarnished
Oil on 8" x 10" wrapped canvas $200.00

I picked this old metal vase up at the local goodwill a few weeks ago, it's a combination of silver and brass and it has tarnished quite a bit, I like the painterly feel this one has along with the rich warm tones, I also have been collecting leaves from around the house, winter is coming so I think I better grab a bunch more before the snow buries them all.

Rose leaves

Title: Rose leaves
Oil on canvas board 5" x 7" NFS

I am really diggin' the progress I am making of late. This little study is a gift for someone, hopefully they enjoy it, not my most accurate painting I have done to date but I like the looseness and the mood of this little painting. I especially like adding natural objects in my still life paintings which I use to lead the eye around the painting and really helps soften the overall look against what are normally hard edge objects and adds some randomness which for the most part are quite symmetrical.

Vase with leaves

Title: Vase with Leaves
Oil on Canvas Board 5" x 7" NFS

Little still life of a vase and leaves is the smallest painting I have done to date, really fun to paint and this painting has been claimed by my significant other. Although this painting is pretty small it does appear larger than it is
