A Jubilant Carnation

A Jubilant Carnation 6" x 6" oil on masonite
I felt like this flower was saying "hooray!" with it's little leaf arms. I got a black floater frame for this painting, it looks awesome. I seem to work faster with every painting I do, so Hooray! :)

Coffee Time

Coffee Time 8" x 8" oil on masonite
So I really like how this one came out. I only used about 2 colors (Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna) plus black & white. I tried to make the paint more impasto in the cloth, which made a nice contrast to the silver. I took a lot of pictures of this painting and I've found that daylight is probably the best option in terms of lighting.

Star Donut

Star Donut 8" x 8" oil on masonite
I really enjoyed painting the sprinkles and icing on the doughnut. The color came out really nice on this, it was like a breath of fresh air. I thought the tree in the background was interesting to put in.
