B Is For Brushstrokes

B is for brushstrokes because I enjoy painting, and this activity allows me to create artwork for the walls of my home. I am always fascinated with the types of brushstrokes each painting contains, and sometimes brushtrokes can even tell a story. Below are a few of my paintings, all of which contain various types of brushstrokes.

I added boulders to the dark green hills on the left-hand side of the canvas.  The boulders were created with a peachy beige tint of oil paint.

I created this painting with acrylics, and used sparkly paint to create the luminous effect on the San Bernardino Mountains after a snow storm.

I painted a picture of this grey cat using oil paints. He has black-eyed Susans behind him as he enjoys the afternoon on a window sill.
This is my oil pastel painting of the large boulders out at the Pinnacles, which are located in the San Bernardino Mountains.

  1. Your paintings are lovely. Yes, brush strokes can convey so much in a painting– energy, mood, emotion. Thanks for sharing your awesome variations ;0)

    1. The fun thing about brushstrokes is everyone can create different kinds when they paint. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Art is fun to create. I took a few art classes in college, but mostly I just create art for myself. Honestly, I really did not care for the way my college instructors taught art, and one seemed very ambivalent about it. My high school teacher was amazing though. I think art happens when you create what you believe in, and that is what my blog is all about.

  2. Wow, these are nice! It’s so true that brushstrokes tell a story on their own. I’ve painting digitally and often times I miss the traditional method just because of the feel of that brush and the personality each stroke seems to possess…whew it’s getting hot in here! 😛
