New Paintings by Emily Jeffords (mio!)

Hello!  I hope it is as beautiful wherever you are as it is here.  It’s not sunny, but all my windows are wide open and the breeze that is making my curtains flutter is warm and fresh.

Regardless of the weather, I have two very happy, warm places to transport you to.   I have missed painting so much (it’s been about two months since I’ve painted in oils due to our move) that these two felt a like little refreshing therapy for my painter’s soul.

Summer’s End” is the greener, fresher looking painting (above in this photo), “Little Fields of Gold” is the painting with yellow and golden fields in the foreground.  I love the tiny size!  These little guys measure 4×4 inches, which, for some reason, allows me to get out of my head and just paint.  I had fun playing around with the color pallet; warm teal, gold, blue, gray…  I also used the brush strokes and the thickness of the paint (“impasto”) to add character, visual direction, and a feeling of lovely texture to these babies.

Three more little paintings to come!  You can find these two in my Etsy shop, and on my website shop.  Little treasure…

Two cute fat baby hands trying to help!  Oh no….

xox, Emily

  • These are so lovely Emily! I especially love Summer’s End because those are my favorite colors. I love the texture and liveliness of both–it makes me feel like sunny is shining even though we’re having a grey, almost rainy day. 🙂

    • Thank you very much! I agree, I love these colors. I think anything could be painted in happy greens and blues and it would look good. I hope your days feels like sunshine!

  • These remind me of Van Gogh’s fields of sunflower paintings. Such warm happy colors. (Although I don’t think he was very happy!) Anyway, keep on painting!

  • Ok, these are pretty amazing. Love the chunky brush strokes and the exciting color pallet!
    Nice work! As an artist, I know how hard it can be to put your work out there and to be open to “comments”, but I don’t think you have anything to worry about. 😉
