Still Life Painting "Something Beautiful" by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Still Life Painting "Something Beautiful"  by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
I painted all morning, animals for the most part on 6x6 canvas but then I decided to do this one. It is a larger painting on 20x20x1.75 oil on gallery wrapped canvas. Sometimes after painting smaller paintings it is kind of intimidating to start a larger one. I really like this one.

Talking Things Over still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Talking Things Over still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
Well! I learned something today. Never Ever be pulled in by free merchandise, They just sucker you in. I recently bought some Gamblin artist oils and they came with this free painting panel. Well... All it did was make me want more so in the long run it will be only cost me more money. Lol... I am to smart for them. I figured out the trick and will resist but it did paint nicely as the oils just glided on. I went to an antique sort of store today. Calhoun County Pickers and bought this little vase. It is actually a sugar and creamer but I only painter the one. I love it but will definitely paint it again soon.
I don't know the exact size of this but close to 6x12 with boxed sides which are also painted.

Sometimes I just want to paint. Well actually I want to paint all the time but time just does not cooperate. I painted this today and like the snow.

It is oil on 6x6 gallery wrapped canvas. Painted with love and thought and tears.

I painted this tree as an attempt to improve my landscapes. Of course the original is much more vibrant. The paint is very thick and rich. It will probably take years to dry. 6x6 oil on gallery wrapped canvas. This is such a nice little painting.
