Strawberries On A Plate

Original Painting: "Strawberries On A Plate":
 8"x10"- Oil on Canvas,  $75+$6.95 S&H USD
Hello everyone!

The day before yesterday I showed you an oil painting that I had completed which was drying on my easel.

Well, today's painting is also an oil painting and it is drying on my easel today as well! I am calling this one, simply, "Strawberries On A Plate." You may recognize this image, as the reference photo for this piece was posted on Facebook during last weeks WSIPW, also known as "What Should I Paint Wednesday." Although, after the Facebook voting, the day before yesterday's painting won out, someone mentioned that the images posted on Facebook were all beautiful and that I should paint them all! So I am doing just that . . .
In my next post, I will show you the third image from last week's WSIPW. So stay tuned and enjoy!

Red Roses in a Silver Vase

Original Painting: "Red Roses in a Silver Vase":
 8"x10"- Oil on Canvas,  $75+$6.95 S&H USD
Hello everyone! Look what's drying on the easel ! ! !

I have my new painting which was inspired from last week's "What Should I Paint Wednesday" for you today! After the voting on Facebook, last week, this still life of red roses in a silver vase won out.

Love the softness of this piece which kind of reminds me of pastel -- But it isn't. This piece: "Red Roses in a Silver Vase" was painted in oil paint! Fooled ya, didn't I?

I thought I'd switch things up from my usual pastels and decided to do an oil painting today! A rarity from me!  :)

I hope you enjoy!

Oh  --  And P.S.
Please don't forget to vote on Facebook tomorrow in order to vote on what gets painted next week!

Til later, fellow art lovers!

The Pipe, The Yellow Flower, and The Canister.

Original Painting: "The Pipe, The Yellow Flower, and The Canister.":
 8"x10"- Pastel on Illustration Board,  $75+$6.95 S&H USD
 
I must say, out of all of the still lifes that I've been painting recently, this particular pastel painting is one of my favorites! Love the earthy colors, the glistening reflections and the deep shadows. I'd say it's a very successful piece. Whad'ya think? Hope you like it as much as I do. Pretty cool how a few simple objects can make such a great painting. Love "The Pipe, The Yellow Flower, and The Canister." I hope that you do as well!

Thanks for taking the time out to read my blog. God bless you and enjoy!

'Til later fellow art lovers!

Week 1's WSIPW (What Should I Paint Wednesday)

Original Painting: "Pair of Tomatoes":
 8"x10"- Pastel on Illustration Board,  $75+$6.95 S&H USD
Good afternoon! Hope your having a wonderful Tuesday!

Last week, on Wednesday, we started a new tradition here at  SamDoum Art called "What Should I Paint Wednesdays" and for the first " What Should I Paint Wednesday"   ( last week) I posted three photographs of still life's on FaceBook and asked for you to vote on which one you'd like for  me to paint with my pastels. Photograph number one was a photo of tomatoes, number two: strawberries, and number three: limes. I waited until the end of that day, 12 midnight before counting the results and the tomatoes won out. So here's my 4th pastel still life in my pastel still life series which is also your pastel painting pick for last week's "What Should I Paint Wednesday." I hope you enjoy!

'Til later fellow art lovers! God bless!
