Harvest Fields Colorful Rural Landscape Oil Painting Daily Small Art

Harvest Fields colorful original daily painting rural landscape by K. Joann Russell
"Harvest Fields"
5 x 7" oil
SOLD

Today's small painting is one from the recently completed series of daily paintings on gessoed mat board.  I repurposed my stash of mat board for watercolors after I stopped doing shows of framed art. I found these 5 x 7" archivally gessoed boards so versatile for studies and en plein air work. They are real art gems when framed. Standard size frames are so cost efficient, too. And no glass needed as I had to use with my watercolors!

"Harvest Fields", a colorful original rural landscape oil painting, shows an impressionistic view of fields of grain and recently plowed soil after harvest on a bright summer day. Time for the combines to thresh the oats!

Dark evergreen trees on the hillsides contrast with the light colors of the grain. Distant mountains add a touch of cool color to the scene.

This oil painting on archivally prepared mat board is varnished and ready to place in a standard size frame. 

Join the fun of bidding for one of these paintings or view the many in this series at my website's small paintings.

Puget Sound Morning Small Colorful Marine Landscape

"Puget Sound Morning" 
5 x 7" oil

One of my favorite spots in the Seattle area is the Des Moines, WA beach park. When I lived near this location I often visited this lovely area in all kinds of weather. There was always so much to see with the long pier, the moorage, the rock strewn beach, the sea birds, and the people. 
 
"Puget Sound Morning", a small colorful original marine oil painting, shows an impressionistic view of somewhat still waters one morning at this beach in Washington State. The water reflected the hillside of dense evergreens and other trees. Vashon Island is in view across the Sound where ships and boats sail between Seattle and Tacoma. All was quiet in the morning sunlight. Can you smell my hot cup of coffee?

Creek Bend Landscape Colorful Painting Daily Art by K. Joann Russell

Creek Bend, colorful small oil painting by K. Joann Russell
"Creek Bend"
5 x 7" oil painting

Even though it has been awhile since I've posted on this blog, I did complete my series of small paintings on gessoed mat board. This colorful oil painting marks the last of the series.

Creek Bend", a small colorful original landscape oil painting, shows an impressionistic view of a mountain stream changing direction as it flows through evergreen trees into touches of spring light on bushes. This is typical of fresh water streams in southern Oregon where boulders force the current to change direction creating rapids and more still waters in pools. 

The contrast of cool greens and blues with warm golds and browns gives a freshness to go with the cold waters of mountain runoff. This creek is typical of the many in the mountains of southern Oregon.  

 Lots of surface texture on this small daily painting makes the scene seem so real.  You might find a trout resting resting from the rapids in the calmer waters of the shady pool. This painting can be your special memory piece of your favorite fishing hole.

"Creek Bend", an oil painting on archivally prepared mat board, is varnished and ready to place in a standard size frame. It is 5 x 7".

Creek Waters Colorful Original Oil Painting Oregon Landscape Daily Art K. Joann Russell

Little Butte Creek colorful original oil painting by K.Joann Russell
"Little Butte Creek"
5 x 7" oil

Today's painting I'm sharing with you adds the refreshment of cool waters and lush grasses to a cold, foggy winter day. I'm thinking "August"! Are you?

"Little Butte Creek", a colorful original landscape oil painting shows an impressionistic view of a fishing stream flowing from the dark shade of evergreen trees into bright light on marsh grasses. Enjoy the contrast of the cool blue colors with the yellow greens of the grasses and the sage greens of the evergreens in bright sunlight. This creek is a popular spot in Southern Oregon, north of Medford.

Lots of surface texture on this small daily painting makes the scene seem so real. This painting can be your special memory piece of your favorite fishing hole.

"Little Butte Creek" is an oil painting on archivally prepared mat board, is varnished and ready to place in a standard size frame. It is 5 x 7".

This post is the first since November. Has it been that long? I'm sorry to keep you waiting. Besides the Christmas and New Year's celebrations I have been painting. The series of small paintings on mat board is completed. They are so easy to ship and offer a variety of framing options. I'll be painting more on canvas panels. And I have been working on larger paintings of landscapes and sunflowers when I'm not in the details of website HTML revisions.

Colorful Daily Landscape Oil Painting Sand Bar Puget Sound K. Joann Russell

"Dash Point Low Tide"
5 x 7" oil
SOLD

One day I went for lunch down to the beach near the fishing pier. I was awe struck by how far the sand bar extended into Puget Sound. Today's daily painting, "Dash Point Low Tide", a colorful original landscape oil painting, shows an impressionistic view of the Dash Point Park sand bar.  People seemed so small on the vast expanse of wet sand.  

Lots of surface texture on this small painting makes the evergreen forest of the park seem so real. In the distance the Cascade Mountains seem part of the cloudy sky.

Mountain Marsh Colorful Original Daily Oil Painting Pacific Northwest Landscape


"Mountain Marsh"
5 x 7" oil

Today's daily painting I've entitled "Mountain Marsh". This colorful original landscape oil painting shows an impressionistic view of wetland marsh waters in a mountain meadow. 

Beautiful to look at but not fun hiking through the wet sponge of ground water. Hiking through the Pacific Northwest forests often challenges one to jump across streams, gingerly walk across fallen logs, or take the long way round! 

Lots of surface texture on this small painting makes the scene seem so real. This painting can be your special memory piece of your favorite hike.
