Lone Aspen - Plein Air Minnesota Landscape - Deb Kirkeeide

Early in the summer I spent time painting near Grand Marais on the North Shore of Lake Superior.
The landscape was filled with rich greens and this little aspen stood out in it's golden green splendor.

Wind Dancers - Original Oil Plein Air Landscape - Deb Kirkeeide

Another painting from my outing at Carver Park Reserve. I had a whole lake before me and what caught my attention were these lovely water grasses dancing in the wind.
It's always interesting to see what will grab my attention when I go to paint!

Sunflowers always seem to bring cheer and joy!And they are the perfect flower to usher in Autumn.
This was a single stem paired with some eucalyptus greens tucked away in a little bottle. It sat on my studio desk just begging to be painted.

Golden Hills - Orignal Landscape Paintng by Deb Kirkeeide

Golden Hills | 9 x 12 Oil on Linen | ©2016 Deb Kirkeeide

I love it when everything comes together to make the most perfect day. 

I had a chance to get out and paint with my good friend and artist, Diane Foster, last week. it was a beautiful day with hints of fall color in the landscape. We painted out near Waconia, MN at Carver Park Reserve. We caught up on life, enjoyed a picnic lunch and headed to Parley Lake Winery, where we celebrated the day with a glass of wine and live music on the grounds.

Pink Splendor - Pink Lily Floral original painting

I have the best daughters!

This is a loose, quick, study of a beautiful bouquet they recently surprised me with. I really like how it turned out - fresh - like the bouquet!

They are from The Bouqs and I have to say I am really impressed with their business model. Flowers are cut when they are ordered and delivered fresh. They source from partners that respect and care for the environment and their employees. Sustainable, eco-friendly farming, and we cut only what we sell - so we don't waste 1 out of every 3 stems like others.

My kind of company.

Shep is a happy-go-lucky fella, always happy and ready for any kind of fun and love you might want to throw his way!

My intentions were to make these portraits a daily challenge. However, I miscalculated how much I had on my plate. Intentional and unintentional. Gotta go with the flow!

These little dog portraits are a lot of fun and I still have a few more in me. If you would like to commission a special Love Portrait of your own pet, I have more information on my website
