Ferret Angel

"Ferret Angel" 4 x 4 inches, Oil on Gessoboard

Nibblefest Art Contest, NFAC Sold, Thank you

The theme for the November 2014 Nibblefest is two creatures in one.  When I gave it some thought, I knew I was going to put angel wings on some kind of animal.  

Then I narrowed that animal down to either a Ferret or a Meerkat.  It wasn't until I actually sat down to paint that I decided to paint a Ferret.  So here you have it, a very hard to find Angel -Winged Ferret.  Like all NFAC or Nibblefest Art Contests, this piece opens with a bid of .99 cents and auction will close on November 27.

On another note, I received quite a bit of positive feedback from yesterday's post "Rocky".  I'm kinda glowing inside.  It was very nice opening so many emails.

Piglet Oil Painting, "Hay Maze" by Brande Arno

I truly love how this piece came out.  I've been amazed at the pure color and beautiful brushwork of Angela Moulton's paintings. Every time I see her latest collection on YouTube, I am awestruck at how pure the background color is.  So I wanted to try my hand at upping background color value in my work.   Below is how I started:
Hay Maze Start Here, I establish the main layout and gesture of this piglet's face.  I'm striving for something that looks painterly, yet would bring a smile to the face of the viewer, so this stage is important.  Also, color values on the pig are being set. Hay Maze about halfway This is where I put that rich background color in.  Notice some neutral colors in with the bright.  I wouldn't want all bright green here as it would be like all caps when texting.  I'll re-post the final Hay Maze below:

Lots of changes from the halfway point,  I added shadows in the hay and a little here and there.  …

Bloomfield Shack in September

5 x 5 inches, Oil on Gessoboard
I've painted this many times and every time I drive by the actual shack, I have to stop and look/take more pictures to work from.  It's hard to admit that one smaller shack could inspire me so much.
