More shameless promotion :-D

Claudia Hammer Daily Paintings
104 pages, published 10/29/2014
100 small daily still life and figurative oil paintings by Claudia Hammer

While talking to someone about the book I realized that they were not aware of all the different subjects that are depicted in the book.   When I paint a subject I usually paint 5 - 12 of the same subject which I call a series.    
In this book there are 11 series and they are:
Ballet shoes
Bourbon
Cars
Cherries
Coffee, cream & sugar
Eyeglasses
Flowers
Things you can eat
Silverware
Scissors & Marbles
Friday figurative sketches

MagCloud/Blurb did a wonderful job of printing this book.

Working a crossword in ink 18" x 18" oil

 Some people are good enough to work crosswords in ink!  Never in a hundred years would I ever be able to do this because I need a big eraser.  Maybe I should show a puzzle with a huge eraser!   This is in my larger 18" square format, painted on wood with 1.5" painted wood sides so it does not need a frame.

two tone head wrap 11" x 14" oil

The model wrapped up her hair in this scarf and she said it only took a minute!  In this painting I am still trying to be thoughtful of each stroke of paint.  Her face was mostly in shadow.

Blue dress 11" x 14" oil

Trying a new technique today where I put on little dabs of color and leave it without blending.   It is the blending that I have been increasingly getting bored with in my paintings.   I think this is more on the line of what I want to paint lately.    I have been going through a slump in my work.   Nothing satisfies and I have been looking for something that would make it fresh again for me.  I might play around with this for the next few paintings.  Please Click here for pricing information.

This is my new book that has 100 daily paintings.  They are 12 grouped series, ballet shoes, bourbon, cars, cherries, coffee cream & sugar, eyeglasses, flowers, things you eat, silverware, scissors &marbles and a few of my Friday figurative sketches.  There is something that I like in all of them and I hope you do too.   Please click on the book cover to go to MagCloud to view some of the pages.
