Painting a still life is fascinating work. There are countless ways to represent the vase and flowers, and it adds up to a creative and challenging endeavor for me as an artist. This painting is sold; to view more of my work, please visit my website at http://www.barbarachurchley.com or e-mail me at barbara@barbarachurchley.com.

Some Mighty Fine Wine by Pam Holnback

Some Mighty Fine Wine
6" x 6" Oil
$100.00 + $10. s/h

This is one of the pieces that I have hanging at Summerland Gardens.  I photographed it there, instead of in my usual spot, and there's a slight glare.  I'll try to get over there and re-photo it.
I'm not sure that all of these are mighty fine wines, but...

"Jeremiah was a bullfrog.
Was a good friend of mine.
Never understood a single word he said,
but he always had some mighty fine wine."

Tis The Season by Pam Holnback

This The Season
6" x 6"  Oil
$100.00 + $10. s/h

This is the second of the vintage, non shiny Christmas ornaments that I recently painted.  It was great how so many commenters on my last post talked about the ornaments from their childhood, their mother's ornaments, etc.  What wonderful memories of the past.  I would love to have all, or even some, of the ornaments from my childhood trees to paint.  How many ornaments from your childhood do you still have?

Yule Tide Treasure by Pam Holnback

Yule Tide Treasure
6" x 6"  Oil
$100.00 + $10.00 s/h


I love painting Christmas ornaments.  I love the shine, sparkle and reflections.  These ornaments are vintage, and aren't regular, shiny glass balls.  They're antiqued and somewhat matte.  I found this a fun challenge.

This is one of my paintings that will be at Summerland Gardens during the holiday season.  This weekend, November 18 and 19, 10am-8pm is their Holiday Open House.   Hope you can stop by and share some holiday cheer.

I also have paintings at Dream Pastries in Castle Rock.  This Saturday is the annual Starlighting event, (the lighting of the star on the castle like rock).  Events and openings will be taking place downtown, so please stop by there as well.

6 Inch Squared Show by Pam Holnback




I'm pleased that these two pieces, "Make The Season Bright" and "Late Bloom", have been accepted into the Six Inch Squared Show at the Randy Higbee Gallery in Costa Mesa, California.  The Holiday Gala Artists Reception will be held the evening of December 3, 2011.  I hope that anyone in that area will be able to attend.

You're A Grand Old Flag by Pam Holnback

You're A Grand Old Flag
8" x 8"  Oil on cradled panel
$195.00 + $10. s/h  click here to bid

Last fall fellow Daily Painter Original blogger Karen Werner posted two incredible paintings, Old Glory and Old Glory 2.  They were my inspiration for this piece and I thought it appropriate for Veteran's Day.  Both of my parent's served in WWII, my dad was in the Army and my mom was a WASP.  My grandfather was in both WWI and WWII.

This painting is of the flag that was on my grandfather's grave when he passed away in 1964.  The flag went to my dad,  who later passed down to my son (who was given my grandfather's name as his middle name.)  We don't hang this flag outside, I should probably take it to the VFW and have them ceremoniously fold it.  I'm pleased how this piece turned out.  If I paint it again, I might try to make it look even a little more aged and faded.

"You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave."

"Show Girls", a 12x24 original oil still life by western Colorado artist, Barbara Churchley

This is one of the most fun pieces I ever painted. I did this in pastel first and liked the result so much that I decided to paint it in oil as well.
