1544 Three Graces SOLD

5" x 7" oil on panel

Back to small paintings for a while, I have been invited by a gallery in England to display a number of small paintings in their spring exhibition, so I will be concentrating on small still lifes again and I am realising that they can sometimes take as long to paint as some of the medium sized ones.

1543 Copper Reflections & Auction Sales

10" x 18" = 25.4 x 46 cms. oil on panel to be framed, available.

This one took me a week to complete and one I class as a 'fiddler' I could fiddle with this one never-endingly. But I had to stop myself from continually try to fix and improve things, there has to come a point when enough is enough!


This week 5 of my paintings sold in a fine art auction in Cork, held last Sunday. I have also sold two more paintings to a private collector as well, so all in all a very good week...

Here are the paintings that sold..

1542 Cherry Necklace SOLD

6" x 6" = 15 x 15 cms. oil on panel unframed
This morning, when trying to get some order among all my panels and paintings, (which doesn't last long) I came across a box of 6" x 6" boards and thought that it would be great to dig out my palette knife and just do a nice loose, simple painting, to start to use up some of these boards, this is the result. Now back to my tight, large painting with lots of intricate patterns, reflections and shapes!

1541 Country Apples SOLD

10" x 18"  =  25.5 x 45.7 cms oil on panel  to see more of my paintings go to dianamarshallfineart.com

These beauties were brought home by my hubby and when looking out my kitchen window I saw my rustic back gate bathed in bright sunshine I immediately thought that it would make the perfect back-drop for these shiny red  and yellow fruit.

1540 Somethings Come Between Us SOLD

11" x 14" = 28 x 35.5 cms  oil on board,  framed.  To see more of my work go to dianamarshallfineart.com

I love the play of light through glass and how it bathes surrounding objects in coloured light. I recently bought 2 lots of 6 glass paper-weights from a local auction, and I'm looking forward to including them in some future still lifes, some have an intricate inner life so should be quite a challenge to paint.

1539 Epicurean Delights SOLD

18" x 14" = 46 x 35.5 cms. oil on board to see more of my work go to dianamarshallfineart.com

This was a labour of love, I must say, elipses, and curves straight lines, lace etc etc! every time I thought that it was finished, I found something else to correct, can't have a wonky bottle or wine glass ..a real fiddler. The grapes and cheese were the easy bits! I was planning on doing another with this theme but I might need a break and paint something less demanding methinks.

1538 All Good Things SOLD

11" x 14" = 28 x 35.5 cms. oil on panel  to see more of my work go to dianamarshallfineart.com

Dark paintings are a pain to photograph especially on a dull day like today. The colour of the cheese is a lot creamier and less green, I have spent hours fiddling with this image and I'm afraid this is the best I can come up with! I have had a request to paint a painting with red wine and cheese so I'm doing a few so the client has a selection to choose from and as it is a popular subject, I am sure that they will find new homes too.
