Heirloom Tomatoes Oil Painting

Tomatoes a perfect subject for a painting.

Heirloom Tomatoes Still Life

Have you seen this lovely ‪‎Heirloom ‪‎Tomato ‪‎Oil Painting?
I think it will make a great addition to a ‪‎country ‪‎kitchen.

Oh yes it’s not a grand landscape or a wonderful vista but a mundane image of Tomatoes. But what the world be without this marvelous fruit? These are the things in our daily lives we appreciate and for me they make good subject matter. Their curves, the color variations from deep red to orange, a bit of green and even bright yellow.
My paintings, at least according to my collectors, are better looking in person, then when first seen on a monitor.
The colors are vibrant, the texture of the ‪‎brushstrokes and the subtle smell of oil paint can never be 100% translated on a cold bright monitor.
Holding the real thing, will make it clear why owning original art is really special.
Prints are OK but an original will win your heart forever.

People say my style reminds them of ‪‎VanGogh‬, I can see why. I appreciate such a great compliment even though I believe I do have my own unique style.
I study and examine his work whenever I can. Seen many of his pieces at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. He definitely was one of those that gave me the courage to use ‎bold‬ ‪‎colors‬.

 

 

Heading South Oil Painting

Autumn Migration Birds and Panoramic Landscape Oil Painting

This is such a gorgeous painting in person. I painted this with so much oil paint. No fillers all good rich oil painting of the highest quality. I used brushes and palette knifes. The trees is what I remember from growing up in Alsace France. Same in Germany where I lived later. The story goes that during hard times and war people used to cut off just the new branches for firewood.

They left the trunk and tree alive so it could later made new shoots and more fire wood. This is why these trees look like they do. You see them occasionally in VanGogh’s paintings as well.

 


Impressionism Wetland Oil Painting

Nouveau Impression Art by Ginette Land of the Trembling Waters

I was inspired to paint this from my excursions in the the wetlands of South Georgia also known as the Okefenokee. 

Land of the trembling waters. Where Herons soar and Lotus bloom.

Where the sun creates magic and sparkle atop the dark mysterious waters. A land untamed by human hands, filled with the aroma of tannic water, sounds of unseen live. As my canoe glides along the watery path the lily pads and water grasses dance in the ripples. A heron flies up and out of sight.

This is an original oil painting

The dimensions are  36 inches tall and 24 inches wide (91.4  x 61 Centimeters)
