About

Hello and Welcome!

Here is some quick info about my artwork….

Each painting I create is original and one of a kind.  I work mostly on small hardboard panels, and occasionally on canvas, and try to do 2 or 3 paintings a week, as time allows.  I like painting  directly from life, and set up my own still life arrangements to paint from.

I use Artist’s quality oil paints and materials, and finish the dried painting with a layer of varnish.   The buyer receives it unframed and carefully wrapped for shipping.   Also included is a signed certificate (certificate of authenticity)  with info about the painting and my contact information.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit,  I hope you enjoy my work!

    Hi Debbie–nice work. Found you on Daily Paintworks website. Follow a few painters and getting back into painting after an extremely long hiatus raising kids and working. I assume that your photo-realistic approach requires some fine brushes. Could you share with me what type they are and what size? And do you do these all in one sitting? I used to paint very large, like 36″ x 48″ and above so seeing paintings at 6″ x 6″ intrigues me. Anyway, I bookmarked your gallery and will stay tuned. Regards, Gary

    Thank you Gary, and good luck with your painting! It was similar for me, while raising kids I didn’t do much oil painting. Discovering daily painters and their blogs inspired me to start. The brushes I use are small flat or round synthetic.. like golden taklon by royal langnickel… Robert Simmons also has nice brushes called “white sable”. Of course real sable would be best, I only have a couple by Blick “masterstroke”.
    Thanks for asking 🙂

  3. Debbie, I’ve followed your work on DailyPaintWorks for a while now and am always impressed. I’m curious about using hardboard panels and am eager to give it a try! Do you prep the panels before painting (gesso, sanding…)? I’m equally impressed the way you’ve organized your wordpress site using archive galleries. I may have to “borrow” a few of these ideas for my site! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Stephen, Thank you for the comments, and in answer to your question about hardboard panels, if you’ve cut the board yourself, sanding is a good idea. I buy the Ampersand hardbords and put gesso on myself. I’m glad you like the wordpress layout, but it was an idea I “borrowed” from other blogs I’ve seen! Thanks for visiting!

    Dearest Debbie,
    I have been following your work for a while now and my admiration and awe for your work grow by each painting you produce. You are indeed exceptionally talented and a huge inspiration.
    I am curious though on your love of painting fruits. I love doing still life paintings, but I just can’t get myself to do fruits/veggies. I have no idea why. So i thought I’ll ask you why you enjoy painting “edibles” … maybe it might help me somehow.
    Also, do you do commissions? If so, how much do you ask … some time ago you did the white/blue cup with the ladel and my husband and I have never forgotten its beauty.

    Wishing you a wonderful week!
    Thea x x x
