"Silver Reflections" with white roses #106


 "Silver Reflections" (with White Roses) Oil on Canvas 6"X8"






  
Detail of this 6"X8" original  painting
 

Reflections in still life objects have always intrigued me, so I return to this periodically.
The trick to doing this is to simplify the shapes and "paint what you see."
    Enjoy, Eileen

"Mississippi Sky" #103


  "Mississippi Sky"/ original oil painting on museum quality canvas panel/ 6"X8"

This scene featured in this original oil painting "Mississippi Sky" has been beckoning me for years to paint. It is from a place called "Dry Creek" where we experienced some fine southern hospitality during a family reunion. It was a hot summer's evening and the sun lit  the clouds in the summer sky with great splendor. I took some artistic license and replaced a red semi-truck with the red roof building shown here, to balance out all the green and blue.
I had such unencumbered joy while painting this Mississippi landscape. 
    Enjoy, Eileen
