On The Edge

On The Edge, 6 x 6 " oil on gessobord, ©2015, Fay Terry


Here's another still life using the same objects and colors. These two glass items made nice reflections of their colors when I set them up in some bright daylight on the kitchen table.

Lemon With Glass

Colorful Glassware With Lemon, 6 x 6 " oil on gessobord, ©2015, Fay Terry


I painted four paintings using these items a while back and I'm planning on doing some new paintings using glass. I think that the suggestions Carol Marine makes about how to paint glass will be very helpful. It's a nice challenge to continue improving skills in various painting subjects. I still have a couple more of this series to post.
Thanks for looking at my paintings on this blog.

Turnip Time

Time For Turnip Salad, 6 x 6 " oil on panel, ©2015, Fay Terry

$100 plus shipping

The color in these turnips is really bright and beautiful. This is a vegetable that I really disliked as a child but I was required to eat a small amount when they were served with dinner. Eventually I started to enjoy eating them, especially the way my dad cooked them. 
I love eating turnip greens and they are even better with diced turnips, hot peppers, pickled onions, and crumbled corn bread.

Colored Glass

Love the reflections of the glass colors on to the tabletop- it's so much fun to paint these colored glass pieces.

This is a 16x20" oil on canvas. I love painting these baskets and the flowers are fun, too.

Cours, Petit Lapin, 4 x 4 " oil on gessobord, ©2015, Fay Terry

$75 plus shipping

I had fun painting this little rabbit and making it a tiny painting. It has been a while since I've picked up a four by four inch panel. Maybe I will make a few more small ones, they are finished quickly and look nice in the small frames I get from Franken Frames.
It is not raining today. It is cloudy and more rain is expected this afternoon and tonight. Lots of branches are down, but thankfully no damage in our area.

Tea And Candles, 6 x 6" oil on gessobord, ©2015, Fay Terry

This is one of my favorite paintings from the past that makes me feel warm just looking at it. 
This has been a chilly, windy week-end which completes two straight weeks of rain. I may have to make some hot tea just to chase away the cold and damp. I hope you are staying warm and dry. There  will be sunshine by Tuesday, according to our local forecast.
Thanks for stopping by.

Color For A Rainy Day

LOVE RAIN, 6 x 6 " oil on gessobord, ©2015, Fay Terry

$100 plus shipping

We are under a state of emergency because of the weather and flooding so many of the week-end activities are being canceled. This includes the 37th annual Autumnfest which is held in Southern Pines. It includes a 5K Road Race and booths set up on Broad Street with delicious food and wonderful arts and crafts, pottery, and much more.  It's too bad it won't be held this year but safety comes first. There are already some trees down and the ground is saturated already. Pine trees fall with the windy conditions and the roads are slick with water and pine needles, not good for the runners!

If you are interested in this painting and you are local, I will deliver it to you and refund your shipping fee.  Just let me know. Thanks for looking at my blog!

This has been a terrific month!  I have had so much fun doing this challenge and I'm sure I will do the next one that Leslie hosts in January. Thanks for following along and for all the great comments I received during September. Congratulations to all the artists who participated and thank you, Leslie, for your enthusiasm and for inviting us all to join your challenge.
