mango love

I love mangos. Here are four 8x8x1/2" oil paintings on gessoed boards. I actually did these way back in March and April. I had some mangos on a white plate sitting on my table. The were so gorgeous, I had to paint them. I love the rich colors and the bright cad medium yellow insides. I had them on display last weekend at the West Greenville Arts Festival. They seemed to get the most attention out of all my paintings, so I thought I should finally get around to posting them here.

Sunflower Oil Painting-Gazing into the Sun

This little sunflower looks as if it's gazing into the sun and is having to shade it's eyes because of the sun's brilliance. That is something that I appreciate about sunflowers, if you'ver ever seen a whole field of them, they keep their faces looking towards the sun. (Hence the name, I suppose:) They are devoted sun worshippers, and one foggy day I went out to get some photos of the sunflowers, and there they were, all with their heads bowed, as if sad and maybe, praying for the light they love so much. Sunflowers are a great reminder to me, to keep looking to God's Son, the Light of the World, and, of course, to pray in this dark world.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Sunflowers Oil Painting

Just finished this a few minutes ago. For some reason, this went so much easier than the last sunflower painting. Not much of a struggle at all, very enjoyable. Any ideas for a title? As I paint these guys, they seem to me to take on a personality. It looks like the big sunflowers are peering down on the poor little guy for some reason. Let me know what you see and what I should title this.
As for now, it's just going to be titled:

Sunflowers, Oil Painting
12"x12"x 1"
$250 unframed. $275 framed plus $10 shipping.

Email me at if you are interested in purchasing this painting. It has the nice gallery edges, so no need to buy a frame.
