No. 350 - Barnyard Rooster

8" x 6" - Oil on Canvas Panel

I had a few other chicken shots from 2011 and wanted to try this guy. I loved painting the high key colors on this one. The colors looks crazy if you focus on them but it works (I hope) as a whole.

Well, this is it for 2015. Another 100 in the books. I'm going to take a week off and then try to keep on painting. I feel like I feel like I've learned so much over the last 45 days and don't want to lose that momentum. Happy new year!!!

No. 349 - Barnyard Hen (2015)

8" x 6" - Oil on Canvas Panel
Available for Purchase

I was completely running out of ideas at the end here and decided to go back through some old shots. As I got into these I thought it would be fun to revisit some of the existing paintings and see how differently I would see them. This one is a throw-back to No. 118 from 2011.

No. 348 - Orange with Two Leaves

6" x 8" - Oil on Canvas Panel

I was running out of gas with the cows and saw this orange at our local grocery store. The orange color on this was so intense that I had a hard time mixing a color that was accurate.

No. 347 - Lake Lanier Sky

8" x 6" - Oil on Canvas Panel

We've had unusually warm weather lately and I was able to take some time this weekend to paint at Lake Lanier. The clouds and sky were changing fast while I was painting, so those pieces had to be laid down very quickly.

No. 345 - Cows in a Field

12" x 9" - Oil on Linen Panel

Mixing it up a bit, here are two cows in a field. These guys were so much fun to paint and I'm loving the warm and cool grays when painting these cows.

No. 344 - Grazing Cow II

8" x 6" - Oil on Canvas Panel

Here's another grazing cow. I love the blues and pinks that make up the "white" in shadow. So much fun to paint.

No. 343 - Grazing Cow

8" x 6" - Oil on Canvas Panel

I wanted to have little fun and try a few cow paintings at the end of the year. Much like the painting of Truman from earlier in the year, this one is really reliant on warm and cool colors.

No. 342 - Jekyll Island Club

6" x 8" - Oil on Canvas Panel

Here's a painting of the Jekyll Island Club on, wait for it, Jekyll Island. This was tricky to paint on a small board, but it was fun to try and reduce so much detail to the essential elements.

No. 341 - Lovely Lane Chapel

6" x 8" - Oil on Canvas Panel

I wanted to revisit No. 320 from earlier in the year and redeem that awful painting. This one is just a little bit better. I'm gonna be posting daily through the end of the year to hit 100.
