26 Snow Mountain Sunrise

no images were found

Mornings down the hill are beautiful on  a clear day. There is a magnificent lookout point that peers Mt. Hood from the distant horizon and the majestic colors from the rising sun. It’s gorgeous! That’s what #26 represents for me. I created it with my palette knife to abstract and texturize the moment.

25 SF Sunrise II

San Francisco comes back for another painting. This time, I used my palette knife to create the beautiful vibrant sunrise. I love the texture the palette knife lends itself to with each stroke.  The textures and bright colors totally rocks the city by the bay.

Two Red Cranes at Play
Underneath the Red Lit Sky
Shine Brightly Tonight

UPDATE (2012-04-12): Renaming this painting to “Love Cranes Playing”. Thought it was more fitting and it’s a play on “love birds.” They really are having lots of fun!

The red cranes continue to inspire for painting number twenty-four. I had originally painted the backdrop with this wonderful dark blue textured background and it found home to this composition. I love the cranes and their expressions. Two good friends enjoying their time.

Day 19 – Mischievous Rooster

This is a fabulous looking rooster.  A friend asked me to paint him. He’s got a mischievous look about him, yet so proud and so handsome. He’s got what looks like boots on, which are his feathers going down his legs and feet. His amazing blue-green feathers shine so bright.

Here’s a time lapse of me painting this awesome rooster:

18 Sunrise over San Francisco

Painting #18 keeps me in the city I love, San Francisco. This sunrise was taken from my last trip to San Francisco on our way back to Oregon. We left early in the morning and were treated to a great view of the sun greeting the city. I love the Golden Gate Bridge leading the way to the city. Barely any fog covering and giving my eyes a wonderful gift to experience. The brisk cold morning was tolerable after this sunny greeting.

Here’s the time lapse video of me painting the magnificent sunrise:

Day 17, Willie Mays Gate at San Francisco Giants Park

Painting #17 takes me to San Francisco. I’m a big San Francisco Giants fan and with spring training in full swing, I wanted to paint a tribute piece to my favorite baseball team. What a great scene with the “Say Hey Kid” greeting fans to an evening game? The ballpark is beautiful any time of day and it’s majestic at night on a clear San Francisco summer evening.

I’d love to do another painting of this entrance, more in the style of the French Impressionist street scenes. I need a picture of wider angle heading towards the ballpark at the Willie Mays Gate. Anyone have a picture like that? Or want to send me a picture?

Here’s the fun time lapse video of me painting:

Day 12 – Tea Time

Decided on painting a still life for today’s painting. I actually set up the objects and had a go with the canvas and paint brushes. There were lots of nuances to the glowing colors & textures from the tea pot. It was a great challenge. I especially enjoyed painting the bamboo in the pot.

Today’s time lapse brought to you by Katula Teas.  Not really, however I do enjoy her teas and brewed it afterward. She’s a friend of ours and Kate blends all her teas.

Day 11 – Tiger at High Noon

Sun was shining on this day and the treetops melting off the snow from the previous night’s snow storm. It was a beautiful site of the rising sun at midday and the mist glowing over the mountain range far ahead. That was day 11’s inspiration. Along with a shadowy figure enjoying the sunshine and brisk air possibly doing Kempo forms or a nice, good stretch.

Check out the time lapse video and you tell me:

Day 10 – Enlightening Snow Day

no images were found

So much snow was falling on our hilltop today. I had to create another snow scene with the snow-covered trees and my Buddha statue in the foreground. I loved how the sun was glowing from behind the statue and creating amazing shadows on the statue.

Here’s my time lapse video. You can see that I made a change to the painting towards the end. Let me know your thoughts on the process and change. I’m happy with the result.
