Roaming II – Oil Painting on Canvas, 10×30. Available at Etsy

Over a year ago I did a small 8×8 painting of a sheep, titled Roaming, and loved how the color combinations came out. I thought I would recreate a similar look with this painting. I enlarged it to show the vast landscape the sheep was roaming in! I hope you enjoy.

The sides are painted, and there is an attached wire on the back, so it is ready for hanging.

It is painted in thick impasto with a palette knife. I call my style Modern Americana.

Somewhere to Begin 16×16 Oil Painting on Canvas- Available at Etsy

 

I have been playing around with grays and blues lately. I also took this title from the same Keane song as the last one.

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

Somewhere Only We Know, Oil on Canvas, at Etsy

I took the title from a Keane song. I just thought the lyrics fit this painting so well:

“I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on…”

There is a lot of thick impasto on this one.

I love painting these long format paintings. They leave a lot of open space and create a wide vista. This one has a lot of texture in the foreground/ flower field. The flowers are slightly 3-dimensional.
