Dogwood by Margaret Aycock

I usually like to paint flowers transparently first and then work with opaque paint. For this painting I tried only using opaque paint and I really like the way it turned out. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to achieve the appearance of a transparent paper thin petal without transparent paint.... so I guess I was wrong. I have this in my ebay store along with many other daily paintings. Just click on the daily painting tab after going to my store at I also have some instructional DVDs there ( I teach adult painting workshops ) and lots of full size oil paintings.

TORNADO SKY Daily Painting by Margaret Aycock 6x6 on canvas

I never have to look far for inspiration here in Oklahoma. I need only look up. We have amazing skies out here and yes, I have experienced a tornado or two. Here is one… you have to paint really quick when doing a tornado painting…. Only kidding  I have more sky paintings in my ebay gallery and often put them on auction. This one is on auction this week.

Fall Sky on the Prairie 6x6 oil on canvas by Margaret Aycock

This is one of my little sky paintings. The size is 6x6 and is an oil painting on stretched canvas. I love the idea of daily painting. What a great, affordable way to start collecting art and keeping our artists painting..... a win win for everyone. Right now I have a great collection of my series of local musicians hanging on my kitchen wall. I used to have some sky paintings there but dang it, people kept buying them :-) They are pretty and fun to paint. If you want to purchase this one you may do so here. It costs $99 with $5 for shipping. If you want to see more of my work click here to go to my ebay store. To find out more about me and my work click here to go to my blog

Yellow Sky

This is one in a series of little sky paintings that I have been working on. I live in Oklahoma and one thing about Oklahoma is that there is an endless supply of beautiful skies here. I live near the Tall Grass Prairie and many of these little paintings depict the landforms that exist there... mostly flat. If you want to see more of these little paintings keep an eye on my ebay store at where you can bid on this painting or contact me for purchase price.

Vampire Cure 6x6 Daily Painting oil on canvas, garlic

I suggest hanging this little painting in the place where you feel you might experience the most trouble with vampires... I find the kitchen is the perfect place in my house, I have had this little painting hanging in my kitchen all week and have noticed the place is vampire free. I will give it up if need be as I can always paint another one as I have plenty of volunteers for models that I grew in my garden this year. I have this on auction this week on ebay starting at $45. If you would like to buy it now you may contact me and pay full price at $99. with $5 shipping
