1536 Golden Collection

16" x 16" oil on panel to see more of my work go to dianamarshallfineart.com

This is my last painting for this year and one I nearly gave up on before Christmas, but what it needed was for me to have a painting break and to come back with fresh enthusiasm. I'm always ready to paint after a break, chomping at the bit, so to speak!

I have some exciting things to look forward to next year, which I am hoping will come to fruition, and also that my art career progresses (the economy willing)!  well only time will tell how things will turn out!

May you all have a wonderful New Years celebration and that the coming year will fill you with new hope and enthusiasm for the future.

Christmas Break

6" x 6" oil on canvas, framed

Wishing you all a very HAPPY CHRISTMAS full of joy and may the New Year bring new optimism for the future.

I would like to thank you all who visit my blog and support me and my work with your comments and emails, they are so wonderful and encouraging, I do appreciate them so much. Painting is a lonely occupation and to have blogging friends means a lot to me and makes me feel I am not alone.

I have found that the artistic community whether on the Internet around the world or here in the flesh, are an exceptionally kind, helpful and supportive group of people, who readily share their knowledge and guidance with each other, it is wonderful to be able to belong to such a group.

1534 Copper Kettle SOLD

18" x 14" = 45.7x 35.5 oil on panel  to see more of my work go to dianamarshall.fineart.com

A recent purchase from a local auction house along with 3 other copper and brass vessels was this beautifully dented and polished kettle. I liked all the left on remnants of polish in the nooks and crannies, looking like verdis gris.
My Ikea shelving unit is now groaning under the weight of all my 'finds', I started off using 1 shelf and now all 5 shelves are packed with these gems, the choice will be soon to get more shelving or get rid!

1533 Split Level

10" x 10"= 25.4 x 25.4 cms. oil on canvas board to see more of my work go to dianamarshallfineart.com

I loved the rich colours of these two very different vegetables, posed together in my old wooden box.

1532 Look at our Reflections! SOLD

10" x 18"= 25.4 x 45.7cms  oil on panel to see more of my work go to dianamarshallfineart.com

These two rosy cheeked apples seem to be admiring their reflections in the silver suface of the jugs, I am sure they know that they are in the spotlight although the jug and coffee pot are still trying to outshine them with their glints of light!

1531 Plum Job

10" x 10" = 25.4 x 25.4cms oil on canvas panel,          
to see more of my work go to dianamarshallfineart.com

After the last painting it was great to get back to a manageable sized painting! This was a pleasure to paint, no intricate patterns to fiddle with, nice and straight forward.
I chose this combination of fruit for their lovely colours and textures that harmonise so well together.

1530 Time for Tea

20" x 24" = 51 x 61 cms oil on board to see more of my work go to dianamarshallfineart.com

Phew finally finished! This is the largest still life I have ever painted and I'm so glad it's done, well I don't think I will be painting such a large one (for me) for a while, and doesn't red oil paint take forever to dry, it seems to get everywhere too.
