Mountain Stream Abstract Small Painting from Color Chord Series by Artist K. Joann Russell

Abstract painting Color Chord 44 by Artist K. Joann Russell

"Color Chord #44"
4 x 6" Acrylic Painting

My landscape paintings are receiving a lot of attention lately whether they are abstract or more representational/impressionistic. I'm featuring this new abstract small painting today because it reminds me of the sparkling cold water of a mountain stream amid the spring greens of new undergrowth and mosses amid the rocks.

This painting on a greeting card is one of a kind, not a print nor a copy of previous work. The images are 4 1/4 x 6 1/4" on a 5 x 7" single fold greeting card. The image is signed by me, the artist, and the back of the card has information about my art. The inside of the white card is blank. A matching white envelope is included.

The card can be easily framed in a standard size frame. Some collectors are using these small paintings in frames to create a wall grouping for their décor.

Two Rural Landscape Paintings of One Rural Scene from Series by K. Joann Russell

Beyond the Dikes, colorful rural landscape painting by K. Joann Russell

"Beyond the Dikes"
4 x 5 x 3/4" acrylic on canvas, gallery wrap
Purchase


Often I paint in series, that is, several paintings of one general subject. I've painted in my Swan Lake, OR series for a number of years. In fact, I have a couple of larger paintings still not completed in this group!

Today I'm looking at two paintings from the same spot in this southern Oregon valley! The small painting above was completed first. Notice how simplified I've made this rural scene.

Below is the second painting completed at a later date from the same vantage point.


Colorful Rural Landscape Painting Swan Lake Series 7
"Swan Lake Series #7"
8 x 10 x 3/4" oil on canvas, gallery wrap
Purchase

In the second painting of the dikes I wanted to show more of the pasture lands so I chose a little higher perspective for the composition. Also, I wanted to unify the painting with brighter yellow colors. All the colors are brighter than the dull browns and grays of the scene.

Which painting do you like the best?

Colorful Rural Landscape Original Painting Small Art Valley Farms Lands

Colorful Rural Landscape Painting by K. Joann Russell

"Valley Farm Lands"
3 5/8 x 5 1/2" acrylic on gessoed watercolor paper
$24.95 + S&H
Buy in Etsy Sunflower Studio Art Shop

A new colorful rural landscape painting painted from memories of my recent 14 months living in the farm and ranch lands of the Rogue Valley area of southern Oregon I am featuring today. The idea for the painting originated from my recall of the Seven Oaks Farm near Central Point, OR where the most delicious corn fresh from the fields draws crowds each day in the summer.

The composition evolved to a higher elevation looking across the valley. I deliberately included the dusty road into the farm as part of the total composition.

The painting is full of rich green colors from yellow greens through blue greens. I painted the composition over an underpainting of bright greens. It is painted with acrylic paints on gessoed watercolor paper and measures 3 5/8 x 5 1/2 inches. It is varnished and ready for you to frame in a standard size frame.

This is one of my many small paintings I work on each day as part of my daily painting adventures.

Another colorful small painting in an abstract style graces a watercolor paper card. What a unique gift of original art for a special person on a special occasion! This is a one-of-a-kind hand painted greeting card in beautiful colors entitled "Color Chord #37".

The yellows, blues and greens remind me of the first sunflowers bursting forth from a forest of dark green leaves. Subtle touches of cerulean blue suggest a background of blue sky for a sunflower field.

The images are 4 1/4 x 6 1/4" on a 5 x 7" single fold greeting card. The image is signed by me, the artist, and the back of the card has information about my art. The inside of the white card is blank. A matching white envelope is included.
