New tablecloth painting in progress… 24x24 oil in canvas.

I’m enjoying working on this one. Painting cloth is like a living thing, it never poses exactly the same way twice. The pattern on this vintage cloth describes the folds.

Stay tuned.

Enchantment, 20 x 16 oil on linen.

Enchantment is the magical quality that transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary, captivating our imagination and stirring our emotions. It fills our world with wonder, transporting us to realms beyond our own and igniting a sense of joy and awe.

This painting, “Camping, Canoeing, and Carolina Ducks”, was painted and sold recently. I’ve been so busy this spring that I realized I missed posting quite a few updates.
Wood Ducks are also known as Carolina Ducks just in case the title threw you off. 🙂
This one is 14”x18” and done in both acrylic and oil. I hope you get to enjoy some time in nature this coming holiday weekend!

Hey everyone, check out these small acrylic experimental paintings Roxanne Lorch has been working on! They're a fun challenge because she's limiting myself to using no more than 40 brush strokes for each piece.

I'm really excited to see what Roxanne does with this challenge!

Let's see what we can create with this fun limitation!
