Old Paintings of people

I’ve just found these old paintings. The two musicians, a drummer and an electric guitarist, were performing at the Woodland First Friday Art Walk. I’ve captured the face painter at a fair in Davis. These are small paintings, 6 x 8 inches oil on canvas panel. They are available for sale in my Etsy shop.

Pets Portraits commissions

Recently finished two pets portraits commissions.

“Bambi” is one of the smallest pet portraits that I do. Only 4 x 4 inches.

Two Eucalyptus Trees by the Lake

This painting was done on site at the M Three Ranch. I used this painting as a base for the larger painting below. My goal in painting landscapes this year is to paint studies on site and to use them to do larger paintings.

Sunflowers along the dirt path

Sunflowers along the dirt path, 9 x 12 inches oil on canvas panel by Marlene Lee

I had repaint this painting. Recently I had been paying more attention to colors especially creating color harmony within the painting. So with this in mind, I repainted the mountains with cooler and lighter colors to create more distance. And redirect the path so that it curved towards the white house in the distance.

Below is what it looked like before.
