Blossoms Flower Painting – art gallery of Jessie Rasche



NEW:  I will be making some sketches available

I’ve been painting some flowers set up in my window again… And in the process I pulled out some of the first flowers I painted. Here they are!

Above: Blossoms / 6×8 / oil on canvas / Visit Sketches Page

White blossoms from the back yard. I like the translucence that came through in the green soda bottle.

Below: Weeds / approx 9×9 / oil on canvas / Visit Sketches Page

These flowers look like black-eyed susans to me, and they are growing in huge numbers in empty lots around here. They’re very pretty.

Portrait artist paints Trio – figurative painting by Jessie Rasche

Trio / 6×6 in / oil on canvas / This painting isn’t available yet – but here are my available paintings of people.

I’ve darkened up the background in Trio to make it a little stronger. It’s still pretty abstract (it’s 3 boys on a tire swing). I’m not sure it’s done yet – but I’m really drawn to this composition. What do you think?

  Here’s what it looked like before. I really liked it, but thought it was a little too washed out. I think I’ll try this again with a light background around their heads and see how that works.

Portrait artist paints a mom and baby in watercolor

Baby Carrier / by Jessie Rasche / 3.5 x 5.5 in / available in my gallery of available paintings / inquire / Love It Guarantee

This is my first completed watercolor painting since the workshop I took last weekend with Stan Miller. What Stan taught about composition really resonated with me, and I’ve realized how I can better follow my heart in this area. And more importantly he gave me structure and ideas for evaluating my compositions that I didn’t have. Anyways, can you tell the difference in my composition? What do you think? I’m happy, and I might make a big oil painting from this small work.


“Cows” cow painting, Landscape paintings of cows.

SOLD. Cows / oil painting on canvas / 8×10 in / More paintings of animals in a landscape.

Cows (probably Jersey cows) eating hay. I love cows, and I’m really happy with this one.

I went to an artist gathering / show & tell and was both inspired and encouraged.
