Impressionistic Still Life Oil Painting - by Pam Holnback

Red Or White?
6" x 6" Oil
SOLD

I've been wanting to paint a piece on a background toned in black  This wine glass seemed like the perfect opportunity.  I like the effect and think I'll tone some more dark.

This is the painting the client chose.  Which one of the four wine glasses would you have chosen?

Impressionistic Still Life by Pam Holnback

A Nice Merlot
6" x 6" Oil
$100.00 + $10. s/h

In painting this series of four I used both white and red wines.  It not only made it more fun for me, I thought that that would give the client more color choices.  After meeting with her I thought that I should have asked if they preferred white or red wine.  In retrospect, I'm glad that I didn't as I might have only painted that color.

Impressionistic Still Life by Pam Holnback

Red, Please
6" x 6" Oil
$100.00 + $10.00 s/h

I received a commission to paint a wine glass.  This client had purchased two of my other pieces, wine bottles and corks with a cork screw.  She wanted a third, knowing that that would look better in her home.  It isn't always that you get to see where your pieces are and how your pieces look in someone's home.  But, she invited me over to get my opinion, see her colors, and see about the third piece.  The two paintings are hanging in their great room, over a small bureau that they use as a bar.  They look great (if I may say so myself.)  I hope to be able to see the third, when it's up.  I loved painting the wine glass.  So, I painted four and let her choose the one she wanted.

This morning my plein air group painted at a home with a magnificent garden.  Every square inch of the yard has been turned into growing space for herbs, vegetables and flowers.  It was magnificent!  And, the freshly baked rhubarb pie was delicious!  Thank you Natalya.

Impressionistic Plein Air Still Life -Shrimp Pots- by Pam Holnback

Shrimp Pots
Alaskan plein air #6/14
6" x 8" oil on canvas on board
$100.00 + $10. s/h

I've mentioned the challenges of plein air painting, and have mentioned some additional challenges of plein air painting on a boat, ie:  changing light, changing reflections on the water, high glare.  Another one is boat movement.  As the boat sways and rocks slowly with the water, you aren't always aware of this.  But, when you're painting and look up and the shadow right in front of you is different, you just go with what was there!  You can't keep changing light and shadow.

Alaskan Buoy
8" x 6" oil on canvas on board

I felt like painting a still life, but in the Alaskan wilderness that wasn't much of an option.  So, I just painted what was right in front of me!
