|Peek a Boo: 6x8 still life acrylic|
My first attempt at a still life from September. I did the 30 day Stradaeaseasel challenge. Since then I've done my usual and favorite theme of atmospheric landscape. Yesterday, went out looking for new props , went to Trader Joe's a purchased mandarin oranges, and to wal mart for artificial flowers and a white milk vase. These are just a few of the paintings I did in September. I do love painting a still life and also find it very challenging. So now here we are the last day of February there is a chill in the air, perfect to be home painting in the studio. All of the painting below are posted on my etsy shop. Originalpaintingsbyjoansart. Happing painting everyone.

Went to Short Beach with friends. I started this 8x10 on location and finished it at home. I am always surprised when using acrylic paint, never know what to expect.

8x10 oil on canvas
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. It’s another rainy day on Long Island and once again home bound. Longing for the sunny days to go out and paint. Yesterday I painted this marsh painting from a photo taken last week. Since the beginning of the year I been painting in w/c and acrylic, yesterday was the first time my oils were used.
Posted this painting in my etsy shop last night and this morning realized it is too wet to mail out if someone wants it, now fingers crossed no one wants it lol. While having my morning coffee a revelation occurred, maybe acrylic paintings for the etsy shop would be better. They are easier to ship.
Well enough, I am procrastinating and do have a busy day ahead. Happy Painting everyone.

January studies, began doing watercolor paintings. Went to Blydenburgh park for a few sketches and photo references. I do however miss working in oil and acrylic. So now that the holiday season is behind us, it’s time to get back into the swing of working in oil and or acrylic.

I love the snow, especially the pretty stuff, just enough to enjoy and not dangerous for driving. Well Long Island did get that surprise snow fall. Like a child, couldn’t wait get out there and paint. Manage to stay out for an hour, and had to quit. Toes and fingers were starting to freeze. But if was great fun. Happy painting everyone.
