‘Wishful Thinking’ 11×14 oil on board

My journey into oil painting finally lead me to do a portrait. I’m really loving exploring this medium that I have avoided for most of my art life. I’ve been heads down painting for many weeks and also busy  participating in local gallery shows, pop up art events etc. It’s a different path than the one I was on for so many years, but I’m really loving it.

I’ve updated my Gallery page with new work. If you see something you’re interested in you can contact me at pamcarriker@gmail.com  I don’t want to open a store or list them for sale because some are in gallery spaces or other venues and I don’t want to create confusion if it gets sold before it’s updated here. All of the work is framed in a gallery style, black wood frame, wired and ready to hang.

‘A Golden Opportunity’ 11×14 oil on board

I’m especially enjoying still life painting. I love using objects from around my home in them to add sentimentality to the work.

“Christmas Past” 6×6 oil on cradled board

Capturing reflections, light and shadow and painting metals and glass are especially intriguing to me.

I hope you all are finding inspiration around you to keep your creative life vital and growing.

Combining Two Passions

So some of you may know that I love to knit as well as creat art. It’s something completely different and so relaxing and I love the feel of amazing yarns. It’s sometimes a battle between the two as to where I spend my time lol. I also recently began a venture into oil painting. I’ll talk more about this later, it’s really been a learning curve!

Setting up a still life to paint from requires some thought and while I’m only 8 paintings in so far, I have been loving painting some of my favorite things around the house which is where I got the inspiration to paint my other passion!

Yarn Bowl 8×10 oils

This is my favorite yarn bowl, yes I have several lol, and the knitting needles my dad found for me several years ago so they are extra special. They are hand carved antiques that are well-worn. I don’t use them but I do display them in a bowl with some yarn balls on my coffee table.

I added a gallery for my oil paintings on my gallery page. I’m loving learning something new and working outside my comfort zone,

Lost and Found

Found 16×24 mixed media acrylics

Finished this piece a few weeks back and it’s in a gallery show right now. The bird was inspired by a picture that a neighbor took, and you could clearly see it had something in its mouth. I have it holding one of the pearl buttons from this woman’s dress and if you look closely you can see the loose threads where it fell from. Hope you are enjoying summer, it’s sure hot in Texas! I will share my oil paintings in a future post. Trying something new and loving it.

Best,

Pam

New Work

‘Guardian’ 24×36 acrylic on cradled hardboard

I’ve been busy working on some new pieces for some upcoming art events. This is my most recent piece still finishing it up but it’s mostly done. This has been sitting in my studio for literally the last 3 years, only as an idea sketched on the substrate. I have just not been inspired to finish it so I started working on it a face at a time and it began evolving. I removed some of the faces and added the ‘Guardian’ on the left as the last change. I now feel it’s what it was meant to be. It’s so weird that when inspiration strikes the painting is so easy. I guess everything has a time.

I also worked on this smaller piece. I just love it and may end up keeping it.

‘Called Home’ 11×14 collage and acrylic on cradled hardboard
