"Untitled" by Andrew Daniel

"Untitled" By Andrew Daniel
Oil On Wood 36" x 24"
Available From The Artist

Yet another flower I came across while walking around town, had to paint it, but have no idea the name of... 

I've been thinking deeply about the direction of my art lately. It's gotten to the point that I need to try new things to see if I can address some of my concerns. In this painting I was interested in making the leaves look like they were floating, I was also interested in using stronger, more brilliant colors.

'Ghost Tree' by Theresa Oats

In September my husband and I painted on the property of a couple of friends who have a small natural lake.   I painted the top of a dead tree poking out of the water.  Over the years it has gathered organic matter, such as  leaves and mud.  To me it was a very mysterious image.
16x12 oil on linen panel.

"Mysterium" by RK Schlueter

Oil on 12x12" canvas

A rainy day cat painting. I am quite sure I will not be painting full frontals very often, they are nearly impossible. This painting will be on exhibit, I am very happy to announce, in the Morris Graves Museum of Art gallery shop. The Shop is on the main floor now, the room that used to house the permanent collection, which has moved downstairs. I love this new galley space, the lighting is dramatic with large windows, it's the kind of room you just love to be in. The museum was built in 1904 Originally it was Eureka Carnegie Library building.

"Makeba" oil by RK Schlueter from photo by Bob Doran

Oil on 8x8" canvas
It's been years since my friend Bob Doran shared this photo with me. When I'm not sure what to paint, logically I pick a cat, they are what I collect. I have numerous books, statues, knickknacks, ornaments, etc. My most impressive and inspired collection is assembled on Pinterest "Kitties of Planet Earth and Beyond!" Thank you for visiting!
