December 2012 Challenge Painting by Daily Painter of Pennsylvania Mary Beth Brath

Get it Done!
Self Explanatory by Mary Beth Brath
5x7" Acrylic on Board
 
"paint with colors you...um...dislike"

Happy New Year To All!!

I hope everyone has set goals for 2013.  Stretch and grow my friends. Reach for the stars. We have some great challenges planned for this blog in the coming year.

There is a thin line between love and hate...so I have been told.  My favorite colors to paint with are alizarin crimson and cadmium red.  I hate pastel and fuchsia pinks.  All other colors are just yummy to me and as an artist, I use them all.

INFERNO
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell


'Inferno'
Oil on Linen Panel
10 x 8

 I was hiking in the woods and came across this area where
the brilliant yellow leaves of a tree were glowing behind
the foreground trees.  It almost looked like a burning fire.

I painted this for the DPP Challenge because it contains
yellow, orange and brown - the three colors
I like the least on my palette...

NEWVILLE FARM QUILT
An Original Plein Air
Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell


'Newville Farm Quilt'
Oil Plein Air
(View from the Clearing 10/14/2012)
10 x 20

Perhaps one of my favorite places up by our cabin
is this clearing that displays an amazingl vista of the farmland
and Blue Mountain Ridge below(this is only a small portion of
 what is visible).  We have put a picnic
table there where we can sit and absorb the view.  While
I was painting, there were Redtail hawks circling in the sky
and screeching out their distinctive call.  They floated on the
air currents, and like myself, just enjoyed the quiet beauty of the day.

MEDIUM: COLLAGE
SIZE: 12" X 12"
SUBSTRATE: BRACED PANEL

This October, DPP will pay tribute to QUILTS. QUILTS are made with function as their first priority: aesthetic concerns are secondary. Still in quilt making there is a love of beauty and attention to design in each and every QUILT. QUILTS are more than blankets to warm sleeping bodies. The makers of QUILTS use quilting as a way to show their individual creative expression. Please take this challenge and express your LOVE of QUILTS in your choice of medium. Feel free to share your quilt memories, and stories too.

Rules of the Challenge:

1. This monthly Challenge is for DPP members only,
but anyone is welcome and encouraged to make comments on the posts.

I'LL HAVE A SIDE ORDER OF FUNGUS, PLEASE
An Original Oil Painting by
Claire Beadon Carnell

Thanks so much to Pat Koscienski for hosting this month's DPP Challenge.  
You still have three days to submit any entry!


'I'll Have a Side Order of Fungus, Please''
Oil on Canvas
8 x 6


You never know where your inspiration will come from...
I was in the very long, and very slow line of cars at
the Wendy's Drive-In window in Carlisle waiting to
get some of their GF chili for lunch.  As I was getting closer to 
my goal, I saw something in the crotch of the tree that grows
right by the curve that gets you closer to where you
can place your order.  I had to do a double-take,  were those
some small alien ships hovering in the shelter of that tree?  No, it
was three delightful fungi that had attached themselves 
to the tree and were flourishing - must be the Wendy's chili!

I painted this for the DPP Challenge Blog, hosted this month by 
Daily Painters of Pennsylvania Artist Pat Koscienski.

October's Challenge will be hosted by Sue Marrazzo

Backyard Mushrooms - impressionistic acrylic ACEO painting by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski

Backyard Mushrooms
2.5" x 3.5"
ACEO
Acrylic

I found these mushrooms growing in the backyard and decided to paint them.   I have been trying to post this for several weeks.  However, everytime I tried to insert the photo it was posted in the vertical position.  I finally edited the photo and rotated it to the vertical position and when I posted it, it posted in the horizontal.  If anyone else has had this problem and knows the solution, please let me know.  This obviously worked, but is very time consuming.  If you have any questions, or wish to purchase, please contact PAT.  If you wish to see more of my paintings, please visit my website and blogspot at:

Fungus Among Us by Daily Painter of Pennsylvania Mary Beth Brath

Fungus Among Us
6x12" Acrylic Alla Prima

Well...Claire put out a reminder about this month's challenge and I took the bait. I may decide to touch this up...or leave it alone...not sure yet.

I searched around my yard to paint the mushrooms plein air but could not find any today. So I went way back to photos I took in 2008 while at our family cabin in Northwestern PA.  Thank you Pat for hosting the challenge.  I have always wanted to paint mushrooms and this made me focus on the subject.

these big ol' tomatoes!!
This 8" x 16" oil is painted on prepared natural luan with the background
left as is, a different exercise for me.

Echinacea's growing in my garden by Linda Young



There are also black eyed Susans in my garden which keeps pushing these pretty little echinacea flowers around every year.  Every year I've had them, they have found a new place to grow away from the "susans".  You'd think the susans would get the hint:  The Echinacea don't like to be near you, so leave them alone!

'A Mother's Love'
Oil on Canvas

I thought this picture really expressed a mother's love 
for her baby.  Thanks to Patricia Griffin for providing
such an inspiring project for this month's DPP Challenge!
Hope that everyone is having a very happy
Memorial Day weekend. Both my father and my
father-in-law were decorated WWII veterans, and I
have always been thankful for all of the people who
protect and serve our country so selflessly so that
we can live in freedom.

Fathers can be mothers too by Linda Young

Fathers can be mothers too
6-1/2" x 7"
Watercolor 300# arches cp
by Linda Young
Every year a new clutch of Cardinal babies arrive in our pine tree; every year the father and mother yap at me to get off my patio because I'm in their space!  So, this time, I left my "perch" and ran upstairs to get on an even level with the baby and father Cardinal.  I watched from a place they didn't expect me to be and took the picture of daddy feeding his offspring which I have placed into a small painting.

"Monet Pond" by Tatiana Myers.

"Monet Pond" by Tatiana Myers
 8 x 10", oil on panel

This one is the latest painting I finished just last night. It was a small commission for the client who wanted me to paint this little pond with the bridge at Monet residence. I had a blast working on this painting starting from part of studying several dozens of photos showing Monet Gardens... When I found out that at spring this little bridge is covered with blooms of my beloved Wisteria, I knew - this is what I want to paint. Monet water-gardens are famous for their water lilies, but I had to give it up for the sake of purple. My client didn't see the painting yet, I hope he will like this version, but if not... of well, I still like it!

LAKESIDE, FALL COLORS by Sharon Benner


Lakeside, Fall Colors was a demonstration painting done at the Hanover Area Arts Guild. The plein air equipment and process were explained while I painted using a photo and a thumbnail value sketch. The center of interest was the yellow tree but I painted the reflections as a subtle mass to support the yellow tree. The orange overhanging branches came forward. My message was "find a simple subject and paint it beautifully."

REFLECTIONS

I loved working with the blue in this one, and brushing the
peach tones into it - much fun!
