Green and Red Bell Peppers Still Life Painting

What beauty nature brings to us!  Isn't it wonderful to be a human and love to eat!  Delights of taste, visions of color, variety of shapes, and shiny, slick, juicy looking surfaces to touch!  I loved working on this painting.   After creating just the right arrangement, they go straight to the kitchen to enjoy as yummy food. This is a great wall hanging for the kitchen.  It will add brightness and delight the senses.  It is listed in my Etsy shop.  You can visit by clicking the highlighted text.  It will link you right to it.  Thanks for coming by!  Thanks for the like and share!

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.
If you are curious about my paintings, please feel free to visit my FaceBook page where I usually tell a little about my latest paintings.  You are invited to "like" my page if you are interested.
