Grapes in a Paper Bag

” Grapes in a Paper Bag “
6x6 inches 
Oil on canvas panel 
SOLD 




 Grape season has come! 

I started to paint with black and white in order to get the right value before glazing.
Glazing takes time and I need to be a little patient, but once I started to see the rich and complex colors in a paining, it’s definitely worth doing it!

Thank you for viewing.
 Have a beautiful day!

Mugi

“Mugi”
9x12 inches
Oil on canvas
Pet portrait commission 

Surprisingly it turned out to be her exact life size without knowing since I worked out from a small photo.  The customer who lost the dog told me she could feel her so much out of the painting and totally loved it.  I’m so glad that I could help her in this way.

Thank you for viewing.
Have a nice day!

Heart of Mine

" Heart of Mine "
6x6 inches
Oil on canvas panel 
Available for purchase on Daily Paintworks 



When I was a teenager, my dad gifted me this necklace.  It's hard to see in the painting, but there are 3 little hearts in the small circle.  I remember my little sister got the one with stars and I was happy getting the one with hearts because it's my favorite symbol.  I wear this quite often ever since then.

I painted from a photo I took at beauty salon on the other day.  I took the necklace off to get a hair cut and put it on the tray. 

"Whatever you do, do it with your heart, because life has no meaning without love" ~My dad :)

Thank you for viewing.
With lots of love~
