A New Painting of Tall Trees

painting of tall trees by Janell Mithani

“Growing Tall” Acrylic on canvas, 12″ x 36″

This painting of trees growing in the forest is inspired by the trees I have seen on my trips driving through California and Oregon to visit my family.  I used a narrow, tall canvas on this piece to emphasize the height of the trees.

I am busy working on three new paintings. Yes, I am working on them all at the same time. 🙂  I do this sometimes as one painting will need some drying time, so I switch to another one.   I also think I create more pieces when I work this way.

Do you ever work on more that one project at a time?

I hope you have a wonderful, creative, day, Janell

Happy Creative New Year!

This the year to be creative!  I just know it! 🙂  Have you been thinking about doing something fun and creative?   Let’s make time in 2018 and make it the best creative year yet!

Now that the holidays are over, I can share a few of the gifts I made for friends and family.

I created this painting for my husband for Christmas.  Morro Bay is one of our favorite places to visit.

My sis wanted a tree painted on wood for her birthday…

I have also been working with some of the buttons from my ever-growing collection!

 I hope you had a wonderful holiday  season!

Have a wonderful, creative, new year, Janell

 

Green, Trees, Painting, a Few of My Favorite Things…

I love green! I suppose then, it is natural that the color green just seems to appear in most of my paintings. In this painting, I was feeling the need to escape and relax. I love trees and painting them relaxes me.

Painting LUSH by Janell Mithani

 

The title of this painting is   “LUSH” 10″ x 10″, acrylic on canvas.  Thanks for stopping by my blog, I appreciate you taking the time to look at my art.

New “Wildish Spirit” Sketches

Here are a couple of new sketches I did over the summer months.  It was quite a busy summer, with lots of traveling and teaching art workshops.  

I am taking a break from teaching this Fall so my torn Achilles tendon will hopefully heal.  ( According to my Dr. I have not been staying off if it  enough.)  The best part is, I will get more time in the studio to paint!  Yippee! 

Have a wonderful, creative, day, Janell

Le Lapin, (Bunny) Painting

I finished this painting a few months ago and just realized I hadn’t shared it on my blog.  The title is “Le Lapin, Bunny” and it is acrylic on canvas, 20″  x 24.”

My dearest girlfriend, Carolyn, was visiting me in the studio just after I had finished the painting, and she titled the piece for me.  Hence the French… I don’t speak French, but I love the title!  Thank you, Carolyn!!

 

This is the youngest “Wildish Spirit” I’ve painted. It’s interesting how they sometimes change a bit or look older from sketch to paint.  i suppose, it is just part of my creative process and the difference in mediums that I used.  Here is the original sketch that I created last summer.

Manga Girl Sketch by Janell Mithani

I hung the painting at the end of our hallway so I can look at it while I walk down the hall. 🙂

It is my favorite place in our home to hang a painting as I walk by it a hundred times a day.  It is also the place where I swap pieces out the most.  Throughout the year, I change the paintings depending on my mood, seasons and what I have created in the studio.  Since we have such mild weather year-round, I often hang a painting that reminds me of the current season. 

I hope you are having a wonderful end to your summer and wish you a wonderful, creative, day, Janell
