Mountain River Landscape Colorful Original Oil Painting Summer Art

"Mountain River Summer"
5 x 7" oil
It's late summer. The mountain run off is evaporating faster in the hot sun. The rocks and boulders are exposed from the lowered water levels of the river. However, it is still cooler in the mountains than in the triple digit heat of the valley. 
This small colorful painting depicts a similar scene in southern Oregon. This oil painting is the popular size for group displays of art or for the special wall locations for your favorite scenes.

I haven't uploaded this painting to my website or Etsy shop yet. Be the first to contact me if you want to purchase it for your art collection. It comes to you unframed.

"Iris Study #2"
5 x 7" oil
 
Several of my floral watercolors were painted from the iris fields of a fellow painter near Salem, Oregon. One painting more recently is an oil on a large canvas nearly 4 ft. in size. However, that oil painting looks rather abstract because it is not completed as I planned.
 
I've debated what to do with the painting, whether to destroy it or paint another image. So, I needed to get back into painting irises to make a decision about this incomplete painting.  Hence, a couple of small individual irises as studies.
 
The iris pictured here and its companion piece are oil on canvas panels. I've listed both of them today in my Etsy shop KJoannRussellArt. They'll make a perfect pair when framed. 
 
Yes, I'll complete the large painting, but not today. More small paintings are being added weekly on KJoannRussell.com

Small Colorful Landscape Oil Painting of Valley in Oregon Daily Art by K. Joann Russell

"Valley View #2"
5 x 7" oil

Time flies when you're having fun, right? Summer flew by while I was painting some small oil paintings in the warm weather. We're still enjoying warm weather, but it's time to focus on acrylics and watercolors that dry faster in the soggy days of fall and winter. 
 
This small colorful painting with lots of green tones in it is the second of this location in the Williamette Valley of Oregon. They could be a great pair when framed.
 
Look for the Valley View #1 among the many small paintings on my website.
 
In addition to painting this summer I've been working on my website and other venues after installing a new computer system. If you've missed any of my paintings, you can order prints on canvas or paper with custom framing optional. The color swatches are a big help in your decorating decisions.
