Trinidad Fog painting by Andrew Daniel

Trinidad Fog oil painting on wood by Andrew Daniel
5" x 7"(13cm x 18cm)

Spent an afternoon in Trinidad Harbor watching the fishermen come in after their day on the ocean. It was quite peaceful and entertaining. I haven't attempted many boat paintings or seascapes in general. Everything is so gray that even a little earth tone hue on the rocks stands out.

This painting is available in my Etsy Shop.

Pink Azaleas oil painting by Andrew Daniel

Pink Azaleas oil painting by Andrew Daniel
8" by 11" (20cm x 28cm)

My buddy Rick Tulley invited me up to the McKinleyville Azalea Reserve a couple weeks back. It was the first hot day of summer and we spent it standing in a field and taking in the beauty, as we chatted and painted pictures!

"White Rhody" painting by Andrew Daniel

"White Rhody" by Andrew Daniel
12" x 9" oil on canvas

I'm on an out of town trip to see my folks in Chico,CA. Thought I would share a painting that I recently sold at the Garden Gate in Arcata. My work will be up there for the rest of July and through August as well. There will be a second arts Arcata Opening on August 12 from 6p - 9p.

I was really attracted to the large physicality of these Rhododendron blossoms. I thought they would be perfect as a pink and gray motif.

Portrait of a Young Buck oil painting by Andrew Daniel

Portrait of a Young Buck oil painting by Andrew Daniel
6" x 5.75" (15cm x 14.6cm)

When I don't have a lot of time to paint, I sometimes just grab a small birch panel and spend some time looking at something. Recently I have been enjoying looking at deer, they are so delicate and gentle, .... quiet.
