Christmas Snowman Painting II

10x10 Oil on Canvas
by
Cheri Wollenberg

This little snowman painting is the second one in a series of snowmen I'm painting for Christmas this year.
He is whimsical and playful.  My inspiration came from a seller on Etsy who makes adorable felted animals.  You can see her creations by following this link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BearCreekDesign?ref=ss_profile. If you are interested in purchasing prints of my snowmen follow this link: http://www.etsy.com/listing/87566997/snowman-fine-art-print-of-original-oil

Snowman I - Christmas 2011 Painting

Every year I try to do a special daily painting for Christmas.  This painting was for fun, it is not realistic but whimsical at best.  I loved doing him.  I felt like a child again and very playful.  I plan to do several more of these little guys if the mood and brush so dictates.   I was inspired to do this fellow when I saw the most adorable felted snowmen on Etsy by Teresa.  Her handmade creations can be seen by clicking this link:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/BearCreekDesign?ref=ss_profile.  I am selling prints of my snowmen here.

Turquoise Green Cup and Yellow Poppy

6x8 Original Oil on Canvas

Since we have moved I have come across many coffee cups.  I like them, use them and I have a preference as to how they feel in my hand.  This is a hard thing to describe, but it can't be too heavy, it must be attractive, cannot have a saucer and has to keep the coffee hot!   The one in my painting here happens to be one of my favorite ones.  It looks especially nice with a flower...in this case a poppy...placed beside it for a daily painting.  It is listed in my Etsy store and for sale.  Just click the title to find out more about it.

Green and Red Peppers in Blue and White Bowl Painting

10x10 Original Oil Painting

Moving is not easy!  We have been moving to a different state during the last several weeks.  Oh My!!!
This is one of the paintings that I have managed to complete since moving my studio.  I'm getting use to my surroundings, and I needed the therapy that painting provides me.  When I paint my troubles and stress seem to disappear.  This particular still life painting was a little more tedious for me to do than some.  Green and red bell peppers make such a wonderful complementary statement.  Kitchens that have a lot of reds in them has to have green to create pleasing color balance.  In this painting the blue and white bowl seemed to be the perfect container for this little still life.  I loved the way the colors complemented one another and bounced around visually. If you are interested in this painting you can find it by clicking Peppers!

6x8 Original Oil Painting

This is the second of several pear paintings that I've worked on in the last several days.  I'm still having a little trouble finding the right area in my new home to get just the right light for documented imaging.  The cup is one that I made in a pottery class several years ago.  I kept thinking that I needed to place it with something and the gold pears were the perfect companions for it.  To buy this painting you can go to my Etsy shop here.

Golden Pear Trio Original Oil Painting

Original Oil Painting
by
Cheri Wollenberg
This still life oil painting features juicy, golden pears against dark brown and rust colors.  I will probably take a better image later.  It is still wet and I am trying to find a good "picture taking spot" in the farm home we just moved to.....hence the wet surface caught more light than intended.  I have suffered "creativity withdrawal" since we've been here.  We have worked non-stop getting my studio ready to move more things from our previous home.  Today, I could bear it no longer.  I took out some photos that I had taken of fruit and decided to do a few pear paintings.  It felt so good to get the brushes out, squeeze the paint onto the palette, and transfer the rich colors to the canvas support with my brushes (lovely experience!).  I've already started the other one.  It will be tomorrow's post.  If you are interested in this painting as your own, you can click Golden Pears.
