Glass with a Sea Conch Still Life Painting

Here's one of the first oil painting I attempted. It's a simple still life of some glass objects and sea conch. I'm surprised it turned out alright as I had no idea what I am doing. However, the mystery of translucent objects has evaded my hand in this painting. I hope to attempt this some … Continue reading Glass with a Sea Conch Still Life Painting

Fruity Road Block, apple & pear painting

Apple, pear on the floor.. who's the pretties of them all? I have worked on a number of still life paintings, and especially apple and pear paintings lately, and I started to get bored of plain backgrounds.

Pumpkin Monster Collection

Fantasy creatures is one of the reasons I love polymer clay. With this medium, it is possible to bring fantasy to life, and not just on a flat surface, but in 3D! This collection is an experiment with pumpkin and gourd shapes, and the idea of adorable monsters. Most of these are small figurines and … Continue reading Pumpkin Monster Collection

Sunset at the Lake in Texas, original oil painting

Beauty of living in the south is the warmth of all seasons. Summer is for fun, and the rest of the year is for work! Now that it's cooling down, I can get out and paint more often.

Apple and Pear on the Table, oil painting

On the Swamp, gouache painting

Sometimes, childhood memories are so vivid, that they need to be painted. I was meaning to paint this landscape for a long time now. When I was little, I used to play on that bridge on the left while my grandmother was collecting duckweed for the chickens and ducks. I would stare at dragonflies and … Continue reading On the Swamp, gouache painting

Single Pear, watercolor painting

When I just started painting these watercolor studies, my goal was to get as realistic, but graphical as I can. I think with this pear I nearly reached this goal. I really enjoy how lively this single pear painting turned out, it seems as if one can really see the volume! Available for sale! 8.5 … Continue reading Single Pear, watercolor painting

Pair of pears, watercolor painting

Pair of pears is probably my favorite pun %) This is why I have so many paintings of two pears! This is another experiment in watercolors. I think, I overdid it a little with the shadows here, but I enjoy seeing the way my paintings change and evolve. This still life painting is 8.5 by … Continue reading Pair of pears, watercolor painting

Green pear, watercolor painting

I keep a bunch of fake fruits on the table for the times when I'm too lazy to get an actual fruit or vegetable, or simply can't like with this whole quarantine deal. I just turn them and paint over and over, all I care about is the shadows on the shape ^_^ I might … Continue reading Green pear, watercolor painting
