Belated Happy Thanksgiving! 9×12  Oil Painting on Canvas Panel

I hope it was a good day for you, however you choose to spend it.

Still lifes are always a great “go to” for me, when I don’t know what else I might enjoy painting.   I decided to make this one a bit more complex and to paint this faceted coffee pot I recently acquired.  I have 3 pieces from this set and might paint them collectively in one still life someday.

I enjoy the color, light, texture and movement in this painting. I hope you do also. Warmly, Winifred

 

Italian Laundry Painting

Oil Painting – Laundry in Italy

Im not sure why we’re so fascinated with the many long cords laundry pinned to them we see in Italy. I love this visual also.  In fact, on any given street, if I saw hanging laundry, I photographed it.  It’s kind of like joyful colorful flags waving in the wind.  This is my first attempt to paint from such a photo.  The process was interesting.  

Laundry in Italy

Below you see the photo which inspired the painting.

The image below is in image of an earlier stage of the painting.  I like it quite a lot – perhaps even better than the finished painting with the laundry. I enjoy the strong shapes and  simple blocks of color. No Fuss. In the future, I just might create this as the painting.  At this point, I’m happy to have it as a digital file.
