We will see a change in the seasons soon whether at home, distancing or whatever our activities are.  Autumn is such a beautiful season.  It brings cooler weather for most of us and and we look forward to the beauty of color even though it falls and changes into winter.  We take this color, texture and season into our homes and celebrate harvest.  This small painting can be arranged with leaves as a centerpiece.  It can be hung as wall art.  To see more about the description click "link".  Or, you can click on the Etsy store link in the column to your right to find it.

Barn Landscape Painting Bella Vista, Arkansas Original Art by Cheri Wollenberg


Barns are an interesting subject to view as we travel through the countryside. We appreciate their practical use and wonder what kind of animals are kept in them, or what kinds of farm products are stored in them. They tell a story...usually of farmers and families; however, they entertain many who love to view rustic country scenes throughout our nation. I saw this barn as we traveled north to Missouri. The barn was up on a hillside and I snapped it at a perfect time from the car. I was so glad to get the image so that I could paint it later, because I loved the beautiful rustic colors of the fall and earth from down below.  You can purchase a print of this barn by following the highlighted description under the image above.

Queen Of The Hill

Queen Of The Hill

8x10 Original Oil On Canvas (Sold)
by Cheri Wollenberg

 "Queen of the Hill' seems to suit this black baldie cow as she stands proudly on the hill looking down at the viewer. Her black coat glistens in the light and she has her head held high! I think she looks like a magnificent creature who is in a surrounding of grasses and trees at a distance. The blue sky sparkles as it is reflected on her coat and her face is designed with SUNGLASSES!  Prints are available in different sizes by clicking the link (Blue Highlighted Text) above.  You will be directed to Fine Art America's webpage where she awaits anyone with an interest:)  Thanks for stopping by and reading about her.  She stood tall that day!

Brown Black Tailed Rooster Painting By Cheri Wollenberg



10x10 Wrap Around Canvas
Original Oil  Painting by Cheri Wollenberg

Roosters are beautiful creatures.  However, some of them have angry or mean dispositions!  Growing up in central Oklahoma both sets of my grandparents raised chickens.  The chicken yards were especially inviting to us children.  Both my mother and father were from large families so there were many grandchildren belonging to both sets of grandparents.  As an older adult I realize now that lots of little kids hanging around chicken yards would more than likely agitate roosters trying to protect their chickens and brood.  All this to say, we were warned that roosters could flog or attack us smaller human beings (LOL).  My husband and I had a few roosters when we lived on our country place.  I managed to photograph all of them at one time or other to paint.  In the next several days I plan to feature my rooster paintings on my blog.  Have a look at them.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I did painting them.

Artist Studio At Payne, Oklahoma



Two years ago in 2018 we decided to downsize from a large old farmhouse in which we had put twelve years of  hard work.  It was almost 100 years old then, but had very good bones.  We loved fixing it up.  It had the original "pecan" wooden floors downstairs and plain wooden floors upstairs.  It was not an easy thing to do because in some ways it was a dream that we got to live out, and we weren't really ready to hang up our hats.  The image above is the room I made for a studio.  This is before we replaced the 4-window wide area with a very large picture window.  The photo was also made before I brought up a lot more furniture, paintings and painting supplies.It was the best light I've ever had to paint in.  Even though I have a very large studio space now in Shawnee, Oklahoma, I still miss the north light of that studio.
