Etsy Shop. Of the five that emerged from my brush, this little Chickadee is my favorite. I love the neutral colors and the warm pink glow as he sits on a branch on watches the world go by. The original is 4x6 inches and was created with oil paints. Since the paint is still wet, he isn't for sale yet, but keep checking my Etsy Shop and the Birds and Animals link. He and some of his siblings will be showing up soon, If you can't wait, reproduction prints are available from my website or you can click on the Prints Tab at the top of the page and explore the Birds Gallery.

Little tangerines are the subject of this 3x3 inch still life oil painting. I don't like to paint quite this small, it is much more challenging than something twice the size, but I had several of these little mini canvases and decided to use them up. The original painting is for sale in my Etsy Shop, here, but you won't find any reproductions. Just like it is difficult to paint this small, I find it very difficult to photograph and create reproductions of work this size. You might also like to view some of my other original tropical fruit paintings, still life paintings, or perhaps the entire shop of my small format art.

Recently, while walking the dog, I meandered toward a proud Evergreen. The lone fir tree stood tall in the middle of a meadow. It was strong and grizzled having apparently withstood wind, rain, and snow without the support of any other trees. As the breezes tossed its branches and the sun made it sparkle, I knew I had to paint the fellow. I loved the texture and color of the bark and the multitude of greens apparent in its branches. After I finished, I was glad to have taken the time to capture the portrait of this soldier. The painting is 11x14 inches on stretched canvas and was created with oils. The original painting is available for purchase here at my Etsy shop. Reproduction fine art prints are available in a variety of sizes on paper and canvas at my website here.

Early in the morning, just as the sun comes up, little rabbits creep out from their burrows and venture through my neighborhood looking for a tasty treat, hopeful that the dogs and children will be absent. It was one of those sweet dawn bunnies that inspired this oil painting. I tried to capture the morning light, his curious nature, and the fearful awareness that must be part of his everyday life. The original painting is 6x8 inches on stretched canvas. It is available for purchase in my Etsy Shop along with some of my other small paintings of birds and animals.

Bartlett pears start appearing on the trees in mid August and share their sweetness into the fall season if stored well. This contemporary still life oil painting was inspired by two yellow pears that didn't last long, not because of storage, but because of flavor. They were devoured soon after their debut. As they tilted toward one another, it was as though they were in love. All that is left is this portrait of their torrid affair. Reproductions of this oil painting that documents their brief affair are available at my website, or just click on the prints tab at the top of the page.

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you have probably noted a new look and some added features. At the top of the page there are tabs that will take you directly to my original small paintings and one that will take you to a gallery of my reproduction prints. I'm excited about the updates and hope my readers will find them helpful. I will continue my blogging and sharing as I wander through my artistic pursuits. Today I am sharing a small painting that will not be reproduced. It is 4x6 inches and was created in oil paints. It can be purchased here from my Etsy shop, but you will not find it available as a reproduction print. When it is gone, it's gone.
