"Happy Leaves" 6" x 6" new oil painting, Nature

"Happy Leaves"
6" x6"
I have started painting after a long battle with a superbug. Hooray! I decided to continue my "Leaves" series. Exploring the color combinations has been fun. I like the layering of this one.

I am finally healthy enough to paint again. I have more to add to my "Leaves" series.

My Nephew graduated from University of Colorado in Denver on May 14, 2016.  Ever since Kyle saw my son's portrait on a Sargent's painting. This is the portrait he wanted. Luckily he was at my house last September and just before he left, we took some very quick shots of him in the backyard. Of course, the lighting was not the same as what I would need, but I made it work. I wish I took a picture of it framed. Congratulations Kyle!

Bunches of Eucalyptus Leaves - A New Series.

A Friendly Bunch
SOLD
A Cool Bunch
SOLD
A Warm Bunch
SOLD
Jeramiah 17:8

As I walk my dog on a trail close to my house I am in awe of this tini Eucalyptus tree/bush and the variety of beautiful display of colors of the leaves (someday I will paint the actual colors). Several times I have taken photos of this wonderful eye candy. I take many pictures of potential references, but this one kept intriguing me and I am glad for that!

This is the beginning of a series of Eucalyptus Leaves. There are slight differences other than color, such as the amount of soft and hard edges and applicaion of paint.  
All are available through my Gallery at Daily Paintworks. Each will go up for auction soon, and after that they are listed at full price.
