Portrait artist paints a mom and baby in “Orange”

SOLD. “Orange” 9×12 oil painting on canvas

See available paintings of people here: http://jessiesfineart.com/people-painting.html

I worked on this painting on and off for several weeks, and moved things around a few times. I am really happy with the orange glow of the painting, as well as how the mom and baby turned out. Mom Loving Project #10 of 30.

MOM LOVING PROJECT: This is a little different from a commission, as people submitting photos are not necessarily purchasing the paintings. If you want to participate in this project, email me with your photo(s). And if you think (or know) you will want to purchase the painting, please put that information in the email.

I am really excited about my “Mom Loving” portrait project: a series of 30 small paintings (6×6 – 6×8 inches) of moms loving and bonding with (holding, nursing, sleeping with, snuggling, carrying, etc.) their babies and young children. The best paintings will be published as part of an art book in 2011. You can also, optionally, suggest a short statement (around 35 words and/or your name(s)) that you’d like to appear next to the painting when it’s published in the book and on my blog.

Moms / Dads / the person submitting the photo will have the first opportunity (but no obligation) to purchase their painting (for $180 unframed).

For this project I am looking for candid-looking photos, and especially ones that have good light (outdoors with light from the  side or side/back is best)  and are good enough quality to see some details, and which are taken far enough away that most or all of the mom and child are in the picture. With that said, I’ve received a couple fuzzy and very close up pictures that will work nicely.

These paintings will be in my impressionist / modern realist style. See: http://jessiesfineart.com

If you’d like to participate and submit photos for this project, email me. If you have several photos from the same time, send them all – that makes it easier to paint. Thanks!

“Lines”

Lines / 9×12 in / oil on canvas / See Available Landscape Paintings

It is really hard to photograph these paintings of snowy landscapes! This photo isn’t very good, but it’s my third try…

This painting is of the same scene as the Snow Cow from a few days ago. I was taken by the colors of the brown grasses coming through the snow. Can you see the cows lined up in the distance?

If I don’t post again before Friday, wish me luck at the 20 under 40 show!
