”NESTLED IN THE HILLS” by Kim VanDerHoek.

5 X 7 inch Oil Painting on canvas board.

Three Amigos



”THREE AMIGOS” by Kim VanDerHoek.

5 X 7 inch Oil Painting on canvas board.
$55 (Shipping $11 within the U.S., $20 for Canada or $28 for everywhere else)

Sorry I haven’t been blogging as regularly as usual. I’ve been fighting a cold and my little one is sick too. Fortunately, I did get out to paint and you are viewing the results.

What I am most pleased with in this one are the mountains. After playing with a few colors I think I ended up with good highlight and shadow colors.

What do you think? I’d love to hear your comments!

Secret Stream



”SECRET STREAM” by Kim VanDerHoek.

8 X 10 inch Oil Painting on canvas board.
$65 (Shipping $11 within the U.S., $20 for Canada or $28 for everywhere else)

This stream is home to a large group of ducks. Immediately after I arrived they waddled over to see if any of my painting gear was edible. Had I known they would be there I would have brought bread. Next time! And maybe I’ll include them in a future painting.

What do you think? I’d love to hear your comments!

Foothill View



”FOOTHILL VIEW” by Kim VanDerHoek.

8 X 10 inch Oil Painting on canvas board.
S O L D

The hills in the background in this one will soon be covered with new homes. I needed to capture the scene on canvas before the big change. Maybe during construction I’ll get to paint a few bulldozers and backhoes!

What do you think? I’d love to hear your comments!

Quartet



”QUARTET” by Kim VanDerHoek.

9 X 12 inch Oil Painting on canvas board.
$85 (Shipping $11 within the U.S., $20 for Canada or $28 for everywhere else)

What captured my interest in this scene was the natural shape of the tree against all the hard lines of the overpass and walkway. While painting the overpass I struggled to keep the brushwork loose. It was so easy to make the overpass smooth and perfect but it didn’t look right with the rest of the painting.

What do you think? I’d love to hear your comments!

5 X 7 inch Oil Painting on canvas board.
$55 (Shipping $11 within the U.S., $20 for Canada or $28 for everywhere else)

This was painted on archival quality artist’s canvas board using Windsor & Newton oil paints. Can you feel the chill in the air and hear the breeze through the pines?

2.5 x 3.5 inch ACEO/ATC original oil painting on canvas paper mounted on acid free cardstock.
$10 (shipping within the U.S. $3)

This ACEO is based on an award winning painting of mine. I thought it would work in a small format and am really pleased with how it turned out. Just to give you an idea of the scale I’ve photographed it with the quarter. Creating these little paintings is totally addictive!
