My Chickens in progress...

This is the third time I have painted my chickens looking in from the deck.  It just makes me laugh every time.  It is so funny that they like to watch us as much as we like to watch them.  I guess I am the fish in the fish bowl :)

Magnolia in progress


Magnolias are one of the first bits of color we get in the spring.  I am very much looking forward to this sure sign of warmer weather!

Goat. Cheese. 6x6"

Don't they always look like they are smiling.

Lobster dinner. "In progress".


This painting is a 36x36.  There is a lot going on, so it is taking a while.  I am enjoying the puzzle-like process of painting the tablecloth and it's reflections.  I wonder if lobsters are "beautiful" to everyone, or if it is just to me and my fellow New Englanders.

Thomas Moser - Boston

I have a solo show at the Thomas Moser showroom in Boston!  Now through the end of September.  
This is one of the new paintings for that show "Gold Country" 36x48 oil on canvas.
It has been a busy year for me.  My website was just updated with all the new work.  Check it out and let me know what you think!

Cherry Blossoms "in progress"

Hope to finish this one tonight.  Wish me luck.  I need to finish three this week!

Peony "in progress"



The newest peony.  36x36.  Lots of big ones in the works right now.  My website has been updated with many new ones too:  www.neileyharris.com

Pigs. On the wall. Watching me.

I had a blast painting these guys.  Their skin is full of colors, especially early in the morning.  I can't wait to see the reaction to this painting when it goes on the wall in May.  When a painting makes you giggle.  To me, that is a success.

On the Fence 6x6"

Baby pygmy goats.   Kids actually.  
It's a double dose of cute.
