New Art

Here is a piece I painted years ago and now I painted it again, this time larger and in oil. It's a flower stand. There is nothing better than flowers

Pottery Lessons pottery lessons

I read across these pottery lessons and thought I'd share. I've been meaning to take up pottery but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I should buy the kiln I guess and commit. Once I get started on something I tend to be obsessed and you know how that goes. If I start to make pottery I'll be in the backyard firing pottery every day. There's only so many hobbies one person can have. Sometimes I stretch myself out too far. It's hard to be good at anyone thing unless you are dedicated to it totally. There are natural gifts, but often it's hard work that really does the job. What others call talent is hard work in disguise.
Maybe glazing pottery would be good for me. I like the way a simple coating can look so beautifully artistic. I think at be more inclined to make sculpture. I like the way the clay feels and it would be like painting except it's in 3-D. My friend Edward is good at ceramics, and wall art as he calls it. I would never think to ask for wall art.
I hope you find these lessons interesting. I like watching the videos and taking the lessons.

Buy Oil Paintings Online

Buy Oil Paintings online These are some of my paintings in oil. One is the creek at Port Royal
This painting is in front of my mother's little house.There used to be a footbridge over this Creek. It kept getting washed away during the high water of the spring. It was finally replaced by this iron bridge through which the light flows into the Creek in front of the viewer.

This is from the greenway in Murfreesboro. We were taking a long ride on the Greenway and Murfreesboro it was a hot day. We passed a field with these donkeys. They were frolicking in the hot sun. One dog he was lying in the dirt on his back like in the painting. He was twisting his back in the dirt and seem so happy.

Buy Landscape Paintings Online

Well somebody needs to sell art it may as well be me to you. Go here and see what you think of the landscapes. A lot of hard work on these paintings. I couldn't buy a used car wiyth the money for beauty itself.
Here is another 
Stones River Landscape 36" x 48". A large piece of art best for a large room. It was a hot day on the Greenway. This is a favorite place for people to look at as they ride their bicycles or walk beside the river. Seeing the color of the sky clouds in the water, and the reflection of the water, makes me think of the world is upside down the focus of the painting is reflection and in the contrast of the color of the field with the color of the sky.
