Painting is Sold

Miss Piggy watches a swallow as it tries to find a way out of the studio.  8″ x 10″


She was given special treatment because she was about to have kittens. Her name is Miss Piggy Pinknose. She earned the name by finding and tearing into every bag of cat food I brought home. I had to hide it from her. She even knows how to open cabinet doors.  Miss Piggy’s fur is short cropped and feels like luscious  mink.  The painting is oil on an 8″x 10″ canvas. It is gallery wrapped and ready to hang.

"The Thing Box" by Gloria Jean

Oil on 6″ X 6″ Raymar Canvas Board $45.00


When organizing my work area I find it helps to have a “thing box.” I also have found that a few of my cats love to curl up in boxes. This kitten was found in my alley, lost and full of fleas. It took months of care to bring her back to health and rid her of a flea infestation. She became my best friend. I was smitten by a flea bitten kitten. Along with her, Miss Piggy Pinknose had two kittens about the same age. One of them looks so much like this one I am going to assume they have the same father. I couldn’t tell them apart.

This is a painting I did for my Cousin Shae of her canning.  She raised the vegetables herself.  Of course its not for sale.  This was all done free hand, and was very time consuming.  Its not something I would normally do because of that.  It took weeks to finish.  For a close up click on the pictures.  Below are cropped areas of the same painting.

6″ x 6″ Oil on Raymar canvas board

I found three pears in the refrigerator and set them on my printer and just started painting with a bigger brush than I needed. I did not like the painting at first, and almost decided to smear it out and start over, but I finally got it to where I liked it and decided to keep it.

Black Hole, a painting by Gloria Jean
6″ x 6″ oil on Raymar canvas board

Black Hole is a favorite fishing and swimming hole in Baca County.  I had better success photographing this painting by taking it outside in the shade on the north side of my studio.  I found the perfect place to set it on a window sill. It was a bit too blue, so I balanced the color to match its true color.

Soap in a dish by Gloria Jean

Oil on 6″ X 6″ Raymar canvas board, (Sold)

I wanted to paint something white and found this bar of soap in a dish.  I painted it from life, then I thought it needed something else so I added the toothbrush.  For some reason, after I finished it,  I thought of something my mother used to always say to me when I said a curse word. .  “Go wash your mouth out with soap.”  I thought of that for the title of the painting, but decided against it.

About the painting:    In Springfield we have a parade every year during the county fair.  It goes right down my street. I find the people watching the parade to be more interesting than the parade itself.  This woman was across the street from where I lived and she was all ready to enjoy the parade.
